Not the best, but one of them

by on 3/9/2007

Saw 3 is an edge of your seat, suspenseful, mind twisting thriller. if you're into plot twists, great story telling and a little brutality then you'll love it. being the 3rd in the franchise, i still found it a bit fresh and different. the first saw can never be touched. the second saw was great. the third, however, definitely ranks up there. definitely better than the second, but saw 1's originality still keeps it's crown. still... saw 3 is one of the best in it's class in a long time.

Product Overview

Jigsaw has disappeared. With his new apprentice Amanda (Shawnee Smith), the puppet-master behind the cruel, intricate games that have terrified a community and baffled police, has once again eluded capture and vanished. While city detectives scramble to locate him, Doctor Lynn Denlon (Bahar Soomekh) and Jeff (Angus Macfadyen) are unaware that they are about to become the latest pawns on his vicious chessboard.

Editors Note
Note In 2004, a low-budget horror film about a man who put people with moral failings into grisly, murderous situations became a huge hit. In 2005, the sequel scored again, upping the body count and the terror. In 2006, the franchise continued, with plenty of gore as well as an emotional story line that delved into the psychological makeup of the main characters. As SAW II concluded, Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) was dying. But that doesn't mean his penchant for playing games of torture and violence is ending. In SAW III, the murders start occurring again, and Kerry (Dina Meyer) is back on the case, although she thinks this time it might be the work of a copycat. She's only partly right: Amanda (Shawnee Smith), the only victim to have survived both movies, has joined Jigsaw as his apprentice, leading the way through a terrifying game involving Lynn (Bahar Soomekh), a doctor in an unhappy marriage, and Jeff (Angus Macfadyen), a distraught man who is having trouble getting over the loss of his son (Stefan Georgiou) at the hands of a drunk driver. Amanda has captured Lynn and placed her in a neck brace that is linked to Jigsaw's heart monitor; she must keep Jigsaw alive or else the brace will explode. Meanwhile, Jeff is sent on a dangerous journey on which he faces all the people involved in the light penalty his boy's killer received--and it is up to him whether he will seek vengeance or offer forgiveness. Helmed by SAW II director Darren Lynn Bousman and written by original SAW screenwriter and star Leigh Whannell (with a story by Whannell and SAW director James Wan), SAW III is an intricately designed, gruesome thriller with a hard-driving soundtrack featuring songs by Slayer, Helmet, and All that Remains.
Sight and Sound "[R]icket, intricate and ruthless. SAW III takes the time to include flashbacks which answer plot questions raised in the earlier movies." 01/01/2007 p.76
Ultimate DVD 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his third entry in the horror franchise is gruesomely good stuff....With some decent twists and turns..." 03/01/2007 p.105

Review Horror sequels tend to be exercises in creative sadism: same abattoir, different Roman numeral. Giving a pound of flesh where it's due, the "Saw" franchise doesn't just look for new settings on the grinder but also aspires to hack out a meaty story arc. "Saw III," however, winds up with the rest of the gristle...Bottom line, those in the "Saw" factory know their audience and have brought along the appropriate buckets and bibs. Even devotees, however, may note pacing problems and tire of Jigsaw's selective omnipotence (he can acquire copious amounts of deadly nerve agent but not a bottle of Ativan?). Those who see "Saw III" are in for ups and downs.

Review Unlike the disturbingly mysterious original, "Saw III" is a neatly wrapped-up package that explains everything -- including Jigsaw's evil contraptions and the background of his crazed female assistant...With the superb, gravelly-voiced Bell now mostly confined to a bed, more of the load is on Smith, who is not as effective in the nasty department. MacFadyen delivers a strong, almost silent performance that conveys a pained father's dark night of the soul, while Soomekh (the distressed Iranian daughter in "Crash") is reasonably convincing as the surgeon...Dark, ghoulish look of "III" is identical to "II" thanks to production designer David Hackl (who also handled latter) and lenser David A. Armstrong (who has been with "Saw" since the beginning).

Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide An improvement over the tedious "Saw II"...shifts the focus to the relationships among the characters.
Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly ...a more affecting study in grief, guilt and human frailty than "Babel."
Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V. Club ...may be the best of the trilogy...
