    Surprisingly despite the gruesome cinematography and a cynically unexplained plot, "Saw 3" bests the its other 2 prequels by focusing deeply into character depth. Although the depth is shallow, at least they tried. Full Review »

    Saw III is just too long for the story, but the characters are pretty good and I'm glad they didn't focus on the traps. Nevertheless one trap with the naked woman doesn't fit in the series, because it's the only erotic scene! Full Review »

    Back on track after the second one. The story is an improvement and the ending is clever. The series is better when there is more storytelling and focus on the relationship instead of people just trying to survive. Also I must point out that the score or the theme music used in this movie is unforgettable. However, due to the extreme gore throughout this movie it is not for everyone even those who have the strongest of stomach's might turn away. In the end this is a big improvement from the second and only slightly worse than the first, I give it 61.0/100 (above average) Full Review »
