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!!

To start, let's review the film itself.

The Jigsaw Killer is back, and he's got new test subjects to toy with. With the help of Amanda, his new apprentice, she sets the stage for their two unwilling participants in his twisted game: Dr. Lynn Denlon and Jeff Reinhart. Before the night is over, one will have the chance at life, another will have a chance at revenge, and another will have the chance for redemption. There's not much else I can say without spoiling the plot, and since this review is geared towards why this 2-disc DVD treatment is superior to the previous versions, let's move on.

Saw III has more plot twists than you can shake a broken arm at, and this film doesn't have too many characters to bog down the action as in the previous film. With a running time of 120 minutes, the Director's Cut of Saw III has more gore and violence than the last two treatments. If you think the directors have run out of trap ideas, believe me when I tell you that there are plenty of moments that caused seasoned horror movie fanatics to cringe and wince at the tortures unfolding before them on the silver screen. If you have already been introduced to the 'Saw' universe, Saw III is required viewing.

As for the DVD treatment of the movie, it's common knowledge these days that the first version of a DVD release is typically not the one with the best features, or the most complete version of the film. The most complete version comes later. The best example I can think of is the Blade Runner (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition) - I had to wait 25 years for that.

Thankfully, Saw III got the best DVD version (so far) within a year.

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.

Having just finished watching this movie half an hour ago, I think I can say that Saw 3 could very well be the best horror movie of this year. As seen in the previous 2 movies, it's full of twists, turns, and reveals even more of the story of the first 2 movies without ever losing your attention. It even recalls small characters from the first movie and makes them the main characters! Particularly the girl who worked with Dr. Gordon from the first movie. We get more into her character, who goes by Dr. Lynn in the movie, finding out she has a destructive family consisting of a husband and a daughter. However, the reason they're so out of hand is because they've been emotionally scarred ever since their young son died from getting hit by a taxi driver. She is caught and Amanda (Jigsaw's apprentice) forces her to help Jigsaw's health problems because he has a severe brain tumor, all the while her husband, Jeff, is having to go through a "maze" to find out who killed his son.

However, as other reviewers have stated, the movie focuses more on Amanda than anyone else. Hey, like Jigsaw said, "Your life is in the hands of Dr. Lynn." It turns out, Jigsaw was never through testing her, ever since he saved her from her drug addiction. Unfortunately, she failed. Well, there's a LOT more than that in the movie, but I don't want to give too much away.

Saw 3 is easily my favorite movie of the series. The storyline is very interesting, the gore is top notch and very realistic, the torture devices are fascinating, it shows what big role Amanda actually has in all of Jigsaw's games, and there's even a level of emotion in it; mainly because we realize that only Amanda understood Jigsaw, and vice-versa. So if you're a fan of the Saw series, go to your local theater and watch it NOW. It's the best one in the series yet, and is my personal choice for best horror movie, and maybe movie, of the year.
