QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A surgeon must contend with being held hostage by a pair of sadistic killers who devise elaborate traps and moral dilemmas for their victims.
PLOT:
Kerry (DINA MEYER) is a cop who been working the case of Jigsaw, a demented psychopath who takes delight in setting up elaborate traps for his victims where they must make difficult decisions about what they'll do to survive. When she's summoned to the scene of what appears to be another of his acts, she doesn't think it's his work due to a difference in the parameters. Unfortunately for her, before she can resolve that case, she ends up as one of the victims. As does Lynn (BAHAR SOOMEKH), a surgeon in an unhappy marriage who's abducted and suddenly finds herself in the lair of Jigsaw, a.k.a. John (TOBIN BELL) who's dying from a frontal lobe tumor putting pressure on his brain.

His protégé and former victim, Amanda (SHAWNEE SMITH), has devised a scenario that forces Lynn to help him. By placing an explosive collar around her neck that's wirelessly connected to John's heart monitor and will detonate should he die or Lynn get too far away from him, Amanda is assured that the surgeon will do everything in her power to keep him alive. At the same time, John and Amanda have set up another elaborate scenario, this time for Jeff (ANGUS MACFADYEN), an angry and bitter man who still holds a grudge toward the drunk driver who killed Jeff's eight-year-son sometime in a past accident.

Wanting to change Jeff's way of thinking, the scheme forces him to make choices toward that driver and others associated with the tragic incident, as well as Jeff's inability to let go. As he tries to make his way through their maze of constructs and moral dilemmas, Lynn tries to save John's life to ensure that she saves her own.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of either of the first two films in this series or grisly horror films in general, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong grisly violence and gore, sequences of terror and torture, nudity and language.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • TOBIN BELL plays the terminally ill psychopath who uses his sadistic traps to test his victims' survival skills, but has recently been allowing his protégé to take over doing that.
  • BAHAR SOOMEKH plays a surgeon in an unhappy marriage who finds herself held hostage where she must keep John alive in order to ensure her own safety. She briefly uses strong profanity.
  • SHAWNEE SMITH plays one of John's former victims and a one-time drug addict who now serves as his protégé, although her traps have no way out for their victims. She uses strong profanity and becomes progressively unstable as her jealousy of Lynn increases.
  • ANGUS MACFADYEN plays their latest victim, a father still grieving and mad about his 8-year-old son's death caused by a drunk driver. He uses strong profanity and must decide how he feels about that man and others directly and indirectly involved with that tragedy who also finds themselves as pawns in the sadists' traps.

    HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


    Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
    Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


    (Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


    OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
    Here's a brief summary of the content found in this horror film that's been rated R. Profanity consists of at least 36 "f" words, while other expletives and colorful phrases are uttered. Some non-explicit, sexually related dialogue is present, and some sexual encounters (affairs) are suggested, but nothing explicit is seen. Female full frontal nudity is present as there are various views of a woman strung up completely nude by her wrists.

    Violence consists of various people being killed by various means (gunshots, a throat slicing, explosives, various macabre and deadly traps), while some fighting is also present, as is the view of a man bashing off his foot with a heavy floor tile. All of that and more may be disturbing, suspenseful and/or scary, and much of the violence has extremely bloody and gory results, which also holds true for close-up footage of the various steps in brain surgery conducted without the usual surgical instruments.

    Various characters obviously have extreme cases of bad attitudes, while tense family material includes a father still grieving over his 8-year-old son who was killed by a drunk driver (various flashbacks show related moments). One woman appears to have some sort of issue with prescription anti-depressants, while another is noted as being a former drug addict.

    If you're still concerned about the film and its appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home who may be interested in seeing it, we suggest that you take a closer look at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

    For those concerned with bright flashes of light on the screen, a defective hallway light repeatedly flashes in one scene, while there are bright flashes of light from a camera's flash that repeatedly goes off during an attack.

    For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, a great deal of camera movement and quick edits might induce that reaction in some susceptible viewers.


    ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE
  • Lynn takes some prescription anti-depressant medication, and then starts to do so again in a later scene, but stops herself.
  • In a flashback, John talks about the marks on Amanda's arms being from another life (she was a former drug addict, but we don't see the track marks this time).
  • In a flashback, a cop refers to Amanda as "You junkie bitch."
  • BLOOD/GORE
  • Via the light from a small flashlight, we see a man who's chained by the leg in a filthy bathroom. He's frantic to get out, but can't, and a gun he retrieves off the floor is empty. We then see what appears to be a dead and bloody body on the floor, as well as a severed and bloody foot. This man finds the hacksaw that one apparently used to cut off his own foot and prepares to do the same to his, but can't go through with it. We then see a flash image of another dead and very bloody body, and then this man takes a large and heavy bathroom floor tile and repeatedly smashes his ankle with it (yelling and screaming, with lots of resultant blood). He then grabs his dangling foot and snaps it off (we also hear that sound) so that he can escape. All of the above is in a dimly lit locale, so not everything is seen in full.
  • We see several flash views of various bloody body parts and a ripped up torso on the floor (from an apparent explosion).
  • We see a flashback to an ex-con who's standing with various heavy chains attached to various points of his skin, pulling it taut in places and otherwise looking painful and bloody. The TV comes on and Jigsaw informs him that he only has a minute to yank those hooks out of his skin before an explosive is detonated. The man then panics and proceeds to do just that, ripping them out of places all over his body (with very bloody results) as he races against the clock (having seen the explosive results, we know he didn't succeed).
  • We see a woman suspended off the floor with some sort of attachment connected to her ribs on either side of her body (there's blood there and some on the floor beneath her). The TV comes on and Jigsaw states she can free herself, but only if she reaches her hand down into a jar of acid to remove the key at the bottom that's now starting to dissolve away. She quickly dips her hand in, burning her flesh, but can't get the key. She does so again, eventually grabbing it but not before the acid has turned red from her blood. She yanks her hand out that's now all bloody and tries to undo the lock, but the contraption on her is sprung and it appears to rip open her torso via her ribs (seen from a distance, although we hear and partially see blood pouring down onto the floor below her).
  • We see a bloody boy in the emergency room who Lynn must work on (he has a bloody head wound, some blood on his side and we see blood on a scalpel Lynn used on him to insert a breathing tube -- the latter is not seen in full detail).
  • Jeff has a trickle of blood down the side of his head after being injured.
  • John starts to convulse and then vomits stomach content as well as some blood as Lynn tries to come to his aid.
  • Jeff tries to reach for a key to free a woman, with his wet face going up against some frozen pipes in a walk-in freezer room. As he then pulls away, a big chunk of skin from the side of his face is torn off (with bloody results and we later see that wound various times).
  • We see John's blood on Lynn's robe.
  • Jeff hears a man yelling for help and finds him tied down (by the neck) at the bottom of a circular pit. A tape recording then gives him the rules of this new game: Jeff must burn all of his late son's belongings to retrieve a key that will free the man (who turns out to be the judge who gave the drunk driver a light sentence after accidentally running over Jeff's son). The twist is what will be filling the pit. Large blades start whirling next to it, and we then see large, bloody, and maggot-covered pig carcasses coming out on hooks and being dropped into the blades. The resultant mushy liquid then rushes into the pit, covering the man inside it, up to the point where just his mouth and nose are above the surface of the foul liquid. Jeff then gets the key, gets into the mush, and frees the man just in time.
  • Lynn is forced to do cranial surgery on John (to relieve growing pressure inside his head), and we see it in full detail, starting with the scalpel cutting the scalp that's then pulled away (with lots of resultant blood). The incision is then washed clean so that we see the actual skull that Lynn then drills down into repeatedly with a power drill (seen in gory close-up, with blood coming out each time, and we hear the sound of the drilling). She then takes a rotary saw and slices through the rest (with blood squirting up onto her face, and we hear the high-pitch sound of the bone cutting), eventually lifting up and holding the square piece of skull. She then makes an incision into the membrane around his brain, all with additional bloody results.
  • We see a flashback to Amanda cutting into her own leg with a large knife (and see scars from previous such activity).
  • We see a flashback to John and Amanda setting up a previous "game" scene where he has a lot of real or fake blood on his head and shirt, and then pours real or fake blood onto the floor and then lies down in it.
  • Jealous of what she thinks is John liking Lynn better than her, Amanda grasps something so tightly that it cuts her hand (we see some blood dripping to the floor).
  • We see a flashback to Amanda suffocating a person by putting a plastic bag over their head and holding that there as they struggle (we see some blood in that bag during this).
  • We see a man vomit.
  • John and another man find a third man in a contraption that a tape recording states will twist his limbs and head around and around unless John is willing to retrieve a key attached to a shotgun that will shoot whoever removes the key. John is reluctant since this is the drunk driver who killed his son, but reconsiders once the twisting starts (we see that the man's hands and feet are impaled in structures that slowly start to rotate, causing him a great deal of pain and the man screams in agony). The twisting continues, including shredding the guy's leg (with bloody results), so John tries to retrieve the key without pulling the attachment. He does so, but the shotgun fires anyway, hitting the second man in the side of the head (with very bloody results). The man being twisted then dies when his head is twisted around, breaking his neck.
  • We see a flashback to the guy who smashed his foot off with a floor tile, now limping along and dragging his bloody stump that leaves a trail of blood on the floor.
  • In a flashback, Amanda's face is very bloody (some even runs from her mouth) after she's been beaten.
  • One woman shoots another in the back, with a man then shooting the woman shooter in the neck, resulting in both of the wounded being quite bloody (especially the woman shooter). An explosive device around one's neck then detonates and kills her (with bloody/gory results).
  • We see blood on the bandage around John's head following his brain surgery.
  • A man and woman's hands are very bloody after she's been shot.
  • A man uses a rotary saw to slice open another man's throat (with very bloody results).
  • DISRESPECTFUL/BAD ATTITUDE
  • John and Amanda obviously have bad attitudes for their sadistic actions (putting people into elaborate traps where they're forced to do unspeakable things to try to get out alive, kidnapping, etc.).
  • We hear that Jeff's 8-year-old son was killed by a drunk driver, died in his arms, and that Jeff's never forgiven the drunk driver, the judge who gave the driver a lean sentence, or a witness who drove away and didn't help.
  • We see a flashback to Jeff getting mad at his young daughter for having a stuffed toy in bed with her that belonged to her now deceased brother. The daughter then apologizes, and Jeff sadly comments on what her mother would think seeing the two of them like this.
  • We hear that a witness to the death of Jeff's son left the scene of the drunk driving accident without helping.
  • We learn that Lynn was cheating on her husband with another man, and we see a man roll off her in bed in a flashback (nothing explicit is seen).
  • In a flashback, a cop refers to Amanda as "You junkie bitch."
  • Jeff learns that Jigsaw has his daughter hidden away somewhere.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • Scenes listed under "Violence," "Blood/Gore" and "Jump Scenes" may be unsettling, suspenseful, or scary to younger viewers and/or those with low tolerance levels for such material.

The man then panics and proceeds to do just that, ripping them out of places all over his body (with very bloody results) as he races against the clock (having seen the explosive results, we know he didn't succeed).
  • Kerry suddenly sees herself on her TV, meaning a camera is on her from somewhere in her place. She quickly pulls her gun and fires several shots into her closet door. She then slowly goes to investigate, finally finding the camera. As she does, however, we see (on the TV) a figure coming up from behind and grabbing her.
  • We see a woman suspended off the floor with some sort of attachment connected to her ribs on either side of her body (there's blood there and some on the floor beneath her). The TV comes on and Jigsaw states she can free herself, but only if she reaches her hand down into a jar of acid to remove the key at the bottom that's now starting to dissolve away.

  • Lynn finds herself locked inside the hospital locker room and we then see a person wearing a pig's head mask jump out and grab her.
  • Amanda walks up to Lynn in a threatening manner with a knife, but nothing happens.
  • Amanda puts a large neck collar around Lynn, stating that it's filled with explosives and is connected to John's heart rate monitor. Should he die, or if she goes beyond a certain range, the device will detonate, meaning she has to stay there and keep him alive as his health progressively deteriorates due to a frontal lobe tumor putting pressure on his brain.
  • We see a flashback of Jeff practice acting out confronting the drunk driver who killed his son (he's cussing and aiming a gun, which we then see is all being done in front of a mirror).
  • Jeff slowly walks through the killer's lair, uncertain what he might find.
  • Jeff enters a huge, walk-in freezer where the door closes behind him and locks him inside. He then spots a woman hanging fully nude by her wrists. As part of her torture, we see mist sprayed onto her in the freezing room, until she's eventually completely encased in a thin layer of ice (presumably dead).
  • Amanda hands Lynn a small ax that she can use to kill her if she so desires, but then gives her reasons why she won't (mainly that she wouldn't make it out alive with the explosive contraption around her neck).
  • We see a flashback to Amanda as one of Jigsaw's earlier victims (with a trap around her neck, and where she had to dig its key out of another victim's belly - we see the motion of her doing so, but no actual impact).
  • Jeff sees a tricycle and small figure in a dimly lit hallway (reminiscent of his son and his deadly accident), but then sees that it's a miniature Jigsaw puppet that makes a pre-recorded laughing noise, so he throws it down.
  • Jeff hears a man yelling for help and finds him tied down (by the neck) at the bottom of a circular pit. A tape recording then gives him the rules of this new game: Jeff must burn all of his late son's belongings to retrieve a key that will free the man (who turns out to be the judge who gave the drunk driver a light sentence after accidentally running over Jeff's son).

She then makes an incision into the membrane around his brain, all with additional bloody results.
  • We see a flashback to John injecting himself with something to slow down his heart rate and relax his muscles as part of a ruse (those afraid of needles might not like the sight).
  • Amanda grabs Lynn by the throat and has her other hand on her handgun that's tucked into the back of her pants, but John tells her to stop.
  • We see a flashback to Amanda suffocating a person by putting a plastic bag over their head and holding that there as they struggle (we see some blood in that bag during this).

  • Amanda holds a gun on Lynn while John tries to talk her from doing something she'll regret.
  • A man uses a rotary saw to slice open another man's throat (with very bloody results).

  • Some kids could be inspired to try to create such elaborate death traps where the victim has to do something horrific to save themselves from a certain fate.
  • We see a miscellaneous guy with some tattoos on his arms.
  • Amanda wears a midriff-revealing top.
  • We see a flashback to Amanda cutting into her own leg with a large knife (and see scars from previous such activity).

  • We see Lynn sitting on the edge of a motel bed in a camisole (that shows the shape of her nipples beneath the material). She says she's leaving to go to work, and there's tension between them as he says he wants a divorce (Spoiler Alert: We later learn this isn't her husband, but rather her lover with whom she's cheating on her real husband).
  • Lynn shows a little bit of cleavage.
  • We see several female mannequins that show non-explicit bare breasts.
  • Jeff enters a huge, walk-in freezer where the door closes behind him and locks him inside.
