Following Jigsaw's grisly demise, Mark Hoffman is commended as a hero, but Agent Strahm is suspicious, and delves into Hoffman's past. Meanwhile, another group of people are put through a series of gruesome tests.
As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw's brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror.
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.

Jeff is an anguished man who grieves and misses his son that was killed by a drunk driver in a car accident. He has become obsessed for revenge against the drunk driver, judge, and only witness who refused to testify; he has also become neglectful of his daughter. Lynn Denlon is a skilled surgeon that is cheating on her husband and suffering from depression. Both are abducted and brought to Jigsaw's warehouse, where they must play two separate games: Jeff must choose whether to save or let the people he holds responsible for the death of his son die, while Lynn must keep Jigsaw alive until Jeff completes his tests, or face the deadly consequences.Written by
According to director Darren Lynn Bousman, the fans of the "House of Jigsaw" message board heavily influenced this film. It is also dedicated to the memory of late "Saw" producer Gregg Hoffman after his sudden passing in December, prior to the release of Saw II (2005). See more »
While Jeff is contemplating burning his son's possessions his hair constantly changes from messed up and down, to pushed up and away from his face. One of the shots you can see Jeff put his hand to his forehead in agony, so this explains that part of the hair change, but the changes happen several times during the same scene. See more »

In Germany the film was released by Kinowelt in three different versions: the uncut theatrical (US R-rated) version (with a SPIO/JK approval, released in three editions: standard amaray, steelbook and 2 disc limited collector's edition), FSK-18 version (cut by 5 minutes) and FSK-16 version (cut by 21 minutes). The US unrated version of the film did not get a SPIO/JK approval and was therefore not released officially in Germany (it was however released in Austria, resulting in high exports to Germany).

While not being a huge horror fan I immensely enjoyed Saw 1 and 2 basically for their intelligent writing and great plot twists.
There is a fine line however from creating an intelligent horror flick and just writing a gore fest, this was quickly crossing that boundary and losing what was great about the previous 2 films. It used the age old solution to creating todays movies, either shock the audience or wow them with special effects.
If you took out all the gore from the film there would be very little of a movie left and it certainly would not warrant a release, as the story and acting alone are not enough to carry it. Whereas with the previous movies could hold itself up with the brilliant stories.
Considering this I sincerely hope they don't create a Saw 4.
