    and yes, there will be a lot of blood

    Posted

    Not being an avid fan of the first Saw and disliking a lot the second one, I nevertheless was very surprised in a good way about the third installment. Yes, it's utterly relentless and gory, I saw people covering their eyes with hands in a theater, even I winced a couple of times although I had seen many of the films alike. But what I liked the most here was not the brutal nature of Saw III (and it's quite important for the fans when a movie lives up to its R-rating, so that they can say money was spent wisely) and not even the intricate story-line that keeps you surprised and on the edge of your seat all the time. Not the final twist which was expected of course but surely you didn't know what it would be exactly. The main merit of the third part is that it doesn't appear to be a usual stupid sequel that lacks ideas, it brings some new sense into the series, glues all the three films together making a perfect trilogy out of it which now can be watched as a one big 5-hour film. There's plenty of flashbacks here that explain a lot from the second and even the first part, and some things become clear that were not in the ends of previous series. It really takes talent to make a movie that not just stands alone, but adds a lot to the other parts and completes them. Guys that were making it are true professionals and real maniacs :) And apart from being as it seems overly gory and graphic Saw III can boast of being rather thoughtful too. The evil genius of Jigsaw (and of the makers of the film) made the characters (and us along with them) think about rage and its manifestations, about revenge and people's insatiable urge to punish those who took their beloved ones. By quite simple examples inclusive of flesh-ripping, bone-crushing, joint-wresting etc. the killer himself shows us killing is bad. Those will survive who don't succumb to the desire of payback. Only forgiving can grant forgiveness for ourselves. And that's the rule for everyone, even for the evil manipulator's apprentice, and it can't be broken. Otherwise death awaits you as well as your victims. In this movie Jigsaw is seen not as an ordinary killer maniac, but as some kind of a teacher if you will. So this time his puzzles must be solved not only using strength, keen wit and will to live, but also by testing your own virtue and that's something new for this kind of flicks, don't you agree? I don't know what they will do with Saw IV, because the third part wrapped it all very nice making a perfectly neat structure of a trilogy. I'd leave it like that. You can top previous parts in respect of blood and guts, but it'll be pretty hard to keep the same level of thoughtfulness the third part established.

    Best in the series.

    Signification

    "Saw III" is easily the best in the series. The film adds much more to the franchise's plot -- the flashbacks to the events from the first movie were brilliantly done. A nurse named Lynn (Bahar Soomekh) is kidnapped by Amanda (Shawnee Smith). Lynn has to keep Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) alive while another man, Jeff (Angus Macfadyen), completes a series of tests. Jeff's son was killed in a car accident and the drunk driver responsible got a very light sentence. The purpose of his test is to make him forgive and forget about what happened to his son. The director's cut adds even more violence than the unrated version, which itself was pretty gruesome. The rest of the additional seven minutes are made up mostly of two scenes -- Amanda seeing Adam's ghost and a fight between Lynn and Amanda. Both of these scenes add to the film. There is also an alternate ending, which goes on longer and is much more unsettling. The special features are disappointing. Aside from the commentaries, there are featurettes on traps from the first three films. There's also a how-to about dressing up as characters for Halloween and a preview of the first trap from "Saw IV." Highly recommended.

    My wife and I love these movies, they just get better and better. This third installment ties right in with the first two. Don't think of this as a sequel, these movies are really just one big movie seperated into segments. Don't skip one or you'll probably be confused. Plus, always make sure you get the unrated director's cuts, you don't want to miss anything. I highly recommend this one, along with the others!

    Continues to impress...

    I haven't found many movies that go farther than the original and one sequel that are worth watching. I am truly impressed by the Saw series. After a while you'd think you've got these movies figured out, and it takes a new turn. This movie was no exception, and I am looking forward to any and all new releases of this series as it comes.

    AMAZING TWIST!

    This had the biggest twist of all since every little hole was filled and everything and everyone was connected in one way or the other. It's lame that Jigsaw dies in this but they're appenrantly making a Saw IV. Oh well hopefully it will be as good as the others.

    The 3rd one is my favorite. Very unique in brutality, screenplay, sounds, props. I like the puzzle mind games makes you think what's going to happen and next thing you know- it's not what you think it is. Bloodthirsty film.

    I really enjoyed watching the 1st 2 Saw movies and the 3rd def. really makes me anxious for more SAW movies. So I really hope the movies keep coming! It seems as though they keep getting better with new twists!
