(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) and tells her "not to trust the one who saves her". See more »

The body of Agent Strahm is completely smashed and destroyed and Detective Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) frames him. Strahm is accused of being Jigsaw's apprentice and the FBI chases him. Dan Erickson (Mark Rolston) calls Hoffman and he leans that Agent Lindsey Perez (Athena Karkanis) has not died. When Dan finds a tape with the voice of the killer, he invites Hoffman and Perez to go with him to the laboratory to see the progress with the identification of the real voice.
John's widow Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell) receives a box from his lawyer with six envelops with instructions and she gives the first five to Hoffman. The unethical CEO of the Umbrella Health, William Easton (Peter Outerbridge), and his team are abducted and William is forced to play a game and choose who will live or die to save his family and him.
"Saw VI" is another violent film of torture with the legacy of Jigsaw. However, it is better developed than the previous story, and has a surprising conclusion. As I have mentioned before, I really do not like this franchise, but at least this time the plot works. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Jogos Mortais VI" ("Mortal Games VI")
