You'd think as big a Saw supporter as I am, I'd have been the first one to get this DVD, but here we are a month later. It's okay, because this isn't the real special edition anyway. They always do the two-discer when the next film is coming out. At least this one has enough to tide us over until Saw IV.
DVD Review: Saw III
There are only two deleted scenes but they're all substantial and run a solid five minutes. One has Lynn exploring Jigsaw's hideout looking for an escape. It's well done and satisfies the audience need to justify the elaborate ruse, though clearly that was done without this scene. It's got another fight with Amanda too if you're looking for some girl on girl action. It's a bit too grimy to be hot though. Another is a flashback with Amanda and Adam, so Leigh Whannell gets some more face time.
Darren's Diary includes B-roll on the Whannell scene. They show Bousman handling minute details on various scenes and it gives you a clue into how he manages the careful timing of Saw. An unfortunate camera position and you end up with a sex farce. There's also a lot of banter with the crew which may be a bit of performance, or Hollywood fakery when people really don't want to be around each other anymore.
I'm not going to watch featurettes on the props and traps, but they're also available for the techies.
