R | | Crime, Fantasy, Horror
Despite Jigsaw's death, and in order to save the lives of two of his colleagues, Lieutenant Rigg is forced to take part in a new game, which promises to test him to the limit.
The autopsy scene was deliberately made gruesome to distance the film from similar scenes that take place on TV every week on shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000).
Subject's name is John Kramer. 52 year old male; Caucasian. He's seen better days.
(at around 15 mins) When Officer Daniel Rigg is watching the interrogation video of Jigsaw's ex-wife he is looking at several books and magazines about Jigsaw. The book he picks up is titled "Jigsaw: Is He The Murderer The Police Say He HIS?"
The German theatrical version, although rated "Not under 18", was cut by 55 seconds (it is based on the US R-rated version). Since there are different rating standards for theatrical and home video releases this rating was denied for the DVD release. The cut theatrical version was therefore released on DVD with a SPIO/JK approval. Additionally an even more cut version (ca. 8 minutes) with a "Not under 18" rating was released as well for sell-through. As with Saw III (2006) the US unrated version was released as well but only in Austria, therefore avoiding probable legal problems with German judiciary (resulting in intended high imports to Germany).
