Kinetofilm

Images jump, blip, strobe, and shock like an epileptic seizure - all the result of director Darren Lynn Bousman's lack of trust in his screenplay.

Cinema Sight

Witness the distortion of the series' original premise bastardized by those who believe they know better.

Cinema Crazed

The power of "Saw III" lies not in the gore, torture, or tension, but in the relationship between Amanda and Jigsaw.

The extreme gore is gratuitous, and character development non-existent in a movie packed with the cookie-cutter visual design of the previous two films. Torturer, victim and audience become one.

Screendaily

Staying mostly faithful to the successful blueprint of its two earlier installments, Saw III is an adequate sequel that works well enough on its own terms.

Face your fears. A lesson worthy of praise, if the film preaching them weren't so completely full of s***.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Nihilistic, amoral, self-congratulatory wanking.

Starts with an interesting premise but quickly squanders it on the usual barely-glimpsed bloodbaths.

August 18, 2007

One of the most sadistic, brutal, grisly films of the current splatter-porn genre.

The only brains on display are the ones that get drilled out of human skulls.

It requires a stretch of the imagination too far, but there's still plenty of gore and tricksy murders here.

Film Journal International

If humorless torture marathons like this represent the future of American horror cinema, it's time for Hollywood to officially outsource the genre overseas, where they remember the pleasures of a good scare.

Saying that the newest Saw movie is better than the last one is a bit like saying that your latest root canal was better than your last one.

The third Saw in the franchise loses its edge.

No one will ever be able to accuse series creators and scribes Leigh Wannell and James Wan of being stingy with the red stuff.

Pretentious, with Jigsaw a splatter Mitch Albom.

If you found Hannibal's brain cooking scene a tad too much, you will want to avoid Saw III; but if you are a fan of the gory versions of horror, this will be an iconic essential

I couldn't watch Saw III without thinking of reality TV shows like Fear Factor. Can it be a deliberate parody?

not great filmmaking, but very profitable and a fun way to get some cheap Halloween thrills.
