Alternate Versions

The German theatrical version, although rated "Not under 18", was cut by 55 seconds (it is based on the US R-rated version). Since there are different rating standards for theatrical and home video releases this rating was denied for the DVD release. The cut theatrical version was therefore released on DVD with a SPIO/JK approval. Additionally an even more cut version (ca. 8 minutes) with a "Not under 18" rating was released as well for sell-through. As with Saw III the US unrated version was released as well but only in Austria, therefore avoiding probable legal problems with German judiciary (resulting in intended high imports to Germany).

Well directed sequel from the original franchise with stirring and frightening images
20 December 2009 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This eerie film begins when an unfortunate duo wake up in a dirty room , they're tied to machine into closed building and strongly chained, and they must encounter a way out to free. Various agents, FBI and police as Scott Patterson, Costas Mandylor are going him after. But they must also avoid the deadly traps Jigsaw(Tobin Bell) has set on the way. Meanwhile, a policeman (Lyriq Bent) is being trapped and Jigsaw's wife(Betsy Russell) is detained. Jigsaw writes on walls strange phrases and words captioning : 'Cheerish your life', 'Feel what I feel', Save as I save', 'See what I see'. Jigsaw, who is dead on Morgue where forensic finds a tape in his guts, has become obsessed for revenge and has prepared twisted traps. The group must race against the clock of Jigsaw's on ticket until an impressive final on a factory named Gideon.

This fourth sequel from original by James Wan, packs grisly terror, tension, suspense and lots of blood and gore . The film takes accent as suspense as well as well-knit plot full twists and turns and of course abounds terror with creepy use of images-shock and slick edition. Provides an imaginative and well-knit screenplay by Patrick Melton plenty of thrills and surprises . Sinister and mysterious atmosphere , well made by cameraman David Armstrong and eerie musical score adequate for mystery and tension by Charlie Clousier, booth of whom are habitual of franchise. The movie again is starred by Tobin Bell, he's a secondary actor working from the 80s in TV series(Walker Texas Rager, Stargate SG1, Alias, 24) and occasionally for cinema(Goodfellas, The firm, Ruby, Black mask 2), achieving success with Jigsaw character. The motion picture is well directed by Darren Lynn Bousman who also directed Saw III with Dina Meyer, Shawnee Smith and Costas Mandylor; and followed by Saw V directed by David Hacklin with Costas Mandylor, Betsy Russell and of course Tobin Bell.
