God or Jack Valenti only knows how this work of pure entertainment got an R rating 'for strong grisly violence and gore, sequences of terror and torture, nudity and language.'

Because of its efforts to make sense of the previous entries and even attempt an earnest parable about forgiveness, Saw III may be the best of the trilogy; hopefully, it'll encourage its makers to wrap the franchise on a relatively high note.

Even splatter-film buffs should be offended by this piece of nonsense: Not because it's so gross, but because it's so dumb.

The second Saw sequel develops the mythology of sadistic puppet-master Jigsaw in ambitious, gruesome but ultimately self-defeating ways.

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

Admit it: It's not every horror film that can make you feel preached at and slimed at the same time.

Tedium eventually sets in again, the movie's murky visual schema and overly aggressive editing style marring any attempts at subtlety. Worse yet, the Jigsaw Killer remains a smug, unscary bore.

Just like its increasingly wan antihero, this blood-soaked series is on its last legs.

Saw III is nasty, repulsive, disgusting -- and loaded with enough viscera to probably sell at least $30 million worth of tickets this weekend.

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

Do you want to play a game? How about a really long, convoluted game that leads nowhere? The scariest thing about Saw III is how it seems like it's never going to end.

Ee'll just entertain you by mentioning such extraneous details as a human skull being opened and probed, a naked woman being frozen to death, a man drowning in the ground-up carcasses of dead pigs ...

As the creators of The X-Files learned and the people behind Lost are going to find out soon, you can only jerk around an audience... for so long before they start screaming in frustration and move on to something else.

A bigger problem lies with Leigh Whannell's script, which utilizes so many flashbacks and explanatory inserts that the tension, a defining feature of the first Saw, is lost.

What's remarkable about these movies is how much the craftsmanship degrades with each episode. This is a long, scrambled, indifferently made affair. There's no rhythm to the sequencing.

The inevitable deadening effects of repetition are beginning to infect the Saw franchise, now having produced its third installment in as many years.

Saw III, with its barrage of grungy rooms, mortified flesh and elaborate torture, is a highly creative exercise in bloodletting, with a bleak view of human nature.

Saw III was not prescreened for critics. It doesn't need to be. The midnight preview I attended last night was packed with folks who don't mind seeing Hollywood beat a dead horse.
