"Saw III" is a lot more unbelievable than the two predeceasing films. It's also more unpleasant, gory, empty, and boring.

The story is about a sole survivor of the Jigsaw killings is about to face the ultimate test. This movie lacks on story and has too many gory sense.

The series evolved into a good interconnecting story, by this point. The traps were growing bigger and more creative, but didn't take away from the core of the story. This third film would've made for a great end to a trilogy. I consider this one of the best of the sequels.

Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg) escapes and after a few months, Detective Kerry (Dina Meyer) has been captured by Jigsaw. Jigsaw’s next test subject is Lynn Denlon (Bahar Soomekh) is a troubled Doctor who has plans of getting a divorce. Jeff (Angus Macfadyen) is also abducted because he has been trying to search for the killer of his 8 year old son. Amanda (Shawnee Smith) accompanies Dr. Denlon to John Kramer (Tobin Bell). Jeff enters a freezer and finds Danica Scott (Debra Lynne McCabe), because of her self-absorption and cowardice, his son died. He meets the rest of the people who were part of the accident.
Flashback on Amanda shows good characterization, even to the point of being an accomplice in the first Saw with regards to Adam. The painful contraptions were immensely …

There is a modicum of entertainment to be found in Saw III, director Darren Lynn Bousman’s entry into the horror series, though purely for gore-lovers and those not jaded by thriller techniques in horror movies. As with the first two films, Saw III is written by Leigh Whannell, who also played Adam in the original. One wonders if his screenplay was written with the same boost of creativity that inspired the first story, or with dollar signs in his sights. This is a franchise that cashes in, especially around the Halloween season, but at the price of becoming rapidly more violent, unnecessarily gory and convoluted.
Saw III spends a lot of its running time explaining various activities of The Jigsaw Killer (Tobin Bell) and his cohort, Amanda (Shawnee Smith) who was a former victim of …

I very much liked this second sequel to "Saw". For me, the story unfolded at an unrelenting pace and offerend non-stop suspense from beginning to end. That's probably good, because there is no time to ponder plot holes, of which there must be at least a few in a story so intricate. And this is considering that I watched the unrated director's cut, which maxes out at nearly two hours!
I find the scripts in the "Saw" movies extremely clever. And they seem to maintain continuity among them all, like there really is an overall plan (other than making money). This one is not as good as the first one (what sequel is?), yet better than the second one. If the filmmakers can sustain the creativity, I hope there continues to be a new one released every year on the Friday before Halloween.
