Customer Reviews

The acting in this movie is good.
C. Entner
Not to say that this movie has nothing to do with the first 2 films, I'm just merely stating that I hate when they make movies like that in general.
LadyLestat
I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of good horror films.

I'm not even going to bother going over a synopsis of the plot. All you horror fans need to know is that this movie surpasses the first film, but in my opinion, it doesn't stand up to the second film in terms of suspense. Saw 3 is the goriest, most disturbing of the films. It seems like 2006 was the year of gore! First came Hostel, with it's torture and blood, then came The Hills Have Eyes, with it's rape, animal killings, parent killings and brutality, and now comes Saw 3...With it's flesh tearing, bone breaking, head twisting, gore splattered shock-fest. I have NEVER, in all my years of watching horror, had to actually cover my own ears and close my eyes while watching more than one scene in a movie before this one. The opening scene had me squirming in my seat with my lids tightly shut (after 15 seconds into the scene I had to mute the tv because I was so grossed out by the noises) and the scene involving a victim trapped in a device that "TWISTS" every limb on his body until the skin tears and the bones break made me want to literally vomit. But, still, the movie was very suspensful and horrifying. It kept you watching and interested. If you can stomach extreme gore and terror then you might enjoy this film. I have to admit that I REALLY hated the ending though. I can't even explain how upset it made me, but overall, the movie was very scary and disturbing. Better than the first, not as good as the second...give it a try...but do it on an empty stomach!!

How can a film be the least violent yet the most violent in a series at the same time? This movie once again from the start, takes us into the mind of Jigsaw as he lays on his death bed. His comrad Amanda is still there yet not as sane or calm as before) However, in his newest game there are not as many players, it really takes you back to the atmosphere of the first one. We first see Lynn, a doctor who has lost contact with her children and her husband, disconnected and lost from her own world. She is choosen to keep Jigsaw alive until his final game has finished (if not the results will be deadly). Then we have Jeff, a man who has lost his son, as he was killed by a drunk driver and seeks vengeance against all involved. That is his prison, that is his torment. As Jeff is put to the test, we see he really isn't in any physical pain, in fact it is much worse pain he must confront. All, the people involved, witness, judge, drunk driver are hidden in rooms and if jeff wishes to survive, he must do the most painful thing of all. Help them, keep them alive and worst of all, forgive them. This movie also features many flashback scenes from 1 and 2 and also, what happens in between these films. The saddest has to be with Adam (inbetween 1 and 2) and the one with Eric Matthews is great as well. This also features the most gruesome traps ever seen in the Saw franchise. This movie, shows growth in the series, not only does it carry the important message and classic gore we want from Saw but it also was a very emotional movie this time around. 5/5 Not as good as the first but better than the second.

There aren't many movies that can make me grimace and squirm in my seat. Only two movies have ever scared me, and I think that once, perhaps, I jumped a bit in my seat at a part where the rest of the theater gasped or screamed. This is one of those few movies that made me squirm. The gruesome - but not gratuitous - torture scenes are creative and original, and the "special effects", i.e., what they do to make us believe that a guy really is breaking his own foot to be able to get out of shackles is just brilliant.

The inclusion of Amanda's character, and her own private struggles, gives this installment of the Saw trilogy - in my opinion - a stronger story line. Not only are there the "games" we have come to enjoy and expect, there are two psychologically damaged characters (Jigsaw and Amanda) to watch interact and develop.

The plot is fairly straightforward, but we don't realize this until we get to the end. In essence, Jigsaw is dying and he recruits the help of a beautiful young doctor who just happens to be the best in her field. That's the first extension of disbelief the movie demands. The climax asks us to *really* suspend disbelief, as it could not have happened if it weren't for a remarkable coincidence of concurrent events. This didn't do too much to hurt the film, but it certainly would have been nicer to end on a stronger, tighter note.

This is forgivable, because the rest of the film was very logical and things happened in their appropriate sequence.

3.5/5, rounded up to 4.

Here's the thing that's proving to be somewhat strange for me with the 'Saw' series of horror films. I had seen each of the first three movies in the franchise when they were initially released to DVD, and had developed opinions both good and bad for each of the films at the time. For instance, when I watched the first film, "Saw", I really didn't think all that much for the movie, I thought it was alright but not worth all the hype it had received. Then I watched "Saw 2" and felt it was a much better movie than the original, I thought the story was improved, and didn't borrow as heavily from other influences. After that I watched "Saw 3", but I hadn't seen the first two in so long that I thought the third film contradicted certain elements contained in the first two, and was also much gorier and seemingly short on plot. However, after re-watching each of the movies in the franchise back-to-back my opinions have somewhat changed. I actually found myself liking the original film much better the second time around, and found "Saw 2" to be fairly disappointing by comparison, due to a lack of character development and an over-reliance on shock and gore, instead of developing an eerily creepy atmosphere and a story that would deliver genuine thrills as the original film had done. Which brings me to my re-watching of the third film in the series, "Saw 3". Going into this film I wondered if my opinion would change as drastically as it had on the previous two films or if it would remain essentially the same as it was after the first time I watched the movie. Either way, I was curious to see what results awaited my repeat viewing of the film that I felt was the weakest in the series thus far.Read more ›
