R | | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Agent Strahm is dead, and FBI agent Erickson draws nearer to Hoffman. Meanwhile, a pair of insurance executives find themselves in another game set by Jigsaw.
The plan was to bring Dr. Gordon back in this installment (he was one of victims in "Saw"). This did not materialize as Cary Elwes was unavailable.
When William escapes the "Oxygen Crusher" he gets a key to one of the straps that are stuck to his limbs, which he immediately uses to take the strap off his hand and then he throws it away, yet in the next shot we see of him, he is taking the strap off and then throwing it away to look at what it says underneath.
SPOILER: There's an extra scene after the end credits: Amanda comes to the door of the place holding the little girl (the one that Hoffman "saves" at the end of Saw IV) and tells her "not to trust the one who saves her".
Also available in an unrated director's cut version, which restores deleted scenes and the violence originally cut for an 'R' rating. A new scene after the end credits is also added.
