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

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.

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?

This is a series that went back to what made it work so well... a game that you wouldn't want to play yourself, but you have to know how it ends.

Saw III may not be the scariest, or most successful horror film ever made, but if you're looking for your pound of fright fan flesh, you'll get a nice craven corpse-full with this shockingly sick flick.

All told, this is a more affecting study in grief, guilt and human frailty than Babel.

The makers... demonstrate a genuine integrity for their series by reigning the story back in to its original core elements... Fans of Saw will not be disappointed.

There's a reason that this series has exploded at the box office while other sequels wither on the vine -- and it's not just because of the perpetually rusty torture devices.

The question for moviegoers: Would you rather get your dose of existenz-philosophie from Dostoyevsky or a slasher flick?

If you don't know by now what you're getting into when you see a movie from the Saw series, you deserve to be offended.

If you don't see Saw III, you might as well saw your eyes out. See it three more times than you saw the last Saws.

Saw III is gross and squirmy, but it's got a lot of brains and heart to go along with its guts. Better than Saw and Saw II combined.

Saw III isn't just by far the best film of the series, it's one of the better horror movies of the year.

Is it an enjoyable feel-bad film? I guess. Is 'enjoyable' even the right word?
