Saw III ***½
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Rossiter Drake*


(Courtesy of San Francisco Examiner)

Starring: Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, Angus Macfadyen, Bahar Soomekh, Dina Meyer, Donnie Wahlberg. Rated R.

Feature Presentation: As iconic savages go, Jigsaw remains the most complicated – a bitter, terminally ill serial killer who, in his sadistic way, allows his captives to choose life or death. In Saw III, he plays a macabre marriage counselor to a young couple struggling to survive the death of their son. Hokey? Perhaps, but it makes for a surprisingly compelling study of human frailty, a dark, disturbing parable soaked in bloody entrails. As usual, Jigsaw’s litany of ingenious traps provides plenty of splatter, and it's not for the faint of heart.

Bonus Materials: The unrated director’s cut offers a worthwhile selection of deleted scenes, commentary tracks and a behind-the-scenes featurette explaining the inner-workings of Jigsaw’s devilish toys, but collectors should hold out for the inevitable double-disc treatment.
