Is the first installment of the franchise where Billy the Puppet appears in person to deliver the rules of a game, rather than a warning or a congratulations message. See more »
(at around 19 mins) When the coroner, Dr. Adam Heffner, is talking to Hoffman and Agent Dan Erickson and Agent Lindsey Perez, he says that the knife used to remove the jigsaw piece from Eddie had a partially serrated edge. Dr. Heffner then claims that same knife was used to cut the jigsaw piece from Seth Baxter. However, in Saw V you can clearly see that the knife used to remove the jigsaw piece from Seth Baxter is a non-serrated scalpel, not the "knife with a partially-serrated edge" that the coroner claims was used.

SPOILER: There's an extra scene after the end credits: Amanda comes to the door of the place holding the little girl (the one that Hoffman "saves" at the end of "Saw IV" (2007)) and tells her "not to trust the one who saves her". See more »
Also available in an unrated director's cut version, which restores deleted scenes and the violence originally cut for an 'R' rating. A new scene after the end credits is also added. See more »
I didn't really enjoy Saw V. I found it had too many flashbacks and the movie itself just felt like an excuse to make another Saw film.
However, Saw VI was a huge improvement over the last. The story was more interesting and the twists and turns were quite intriguing. One little problem i have with this film is that they went way too overboard with the blood and gore in this one, but i suppose that nowadays, thats what the Saw films are all about, which is a shame, considering the first film started off as a psychological thriller.
Apart from that, the film was quite enjoyable and there's definitely some little secrets that they will be able to use for more sequels. Bring on Saw VII i say!
