In this Extreme Edition of Saw III, prepare for a truly terrifying experience from the master of cruelty. With extended scenes which have been seen before, Saw III Extreme Edition features more gore, more shocks, more Saw. Suffering? You definitely haven't seen anything yet.... Jigsaw has disappeared. Along with his new apprentice Amanda (Shawnee Smith), the puppet-master behind the cruel, intricate games that have terrified a community and baffled police has once again eluded capture and vanished. While city detectives scramble to locate him, Doctor Lynn Denlan (Bahar Soomekh) and Jeff Reinhart (Angus Macfadyen) are unaware that they are about to become the latest pawns on his vicious chessboard.
Sad to see a film idea that provoked thoughts and pushed boundaries of horror concepts, decline into a weak formula.
Even though horror film lovers would still enjoy some of the scenes, i can't help but think that this film is just killing of the franchise of Saw.
Saw 1 and 2 really did push the story along - reminded me of how Scream 1 and 2 was.
Saw 3; definitely the weakest of the three films, and many times it had to revert to basic gore and shock values to try and keep you interested. Yet seeing past that, if you just want a visual shock fest, then it won't fully disappoint.
