Questions I Have About Saw 3D

Yes, I finally caved in and saw Saw 3D. I made a vow that any movie that followed the 3rd one, I would never pay to see or even care to watch. I didn’t talk about Saw and I avoided it all together with the exception of 1-3. Well, yesterday I broke my code and paid $11.50 for the final installment in 3D. Now, it’s important to note that I haven’t seen 4, 5 or 6 so this may have affected by opinion on it. Yes, it was a steaming pile of shit. It was plagued with bad acting and too many plotlines to keep up with. But that’s where you, the Saw fans, come in handy because I have a few questions that were left unanswered. This was supposed to be the final installment of the franchise but there were so many questions left unanswered when they should have been answered. So here is my list.

There are major spoiler alerts here.

Who in the hell was Bobby? Was he ever introduced before 7?

How did Detective Hoffman get roped into all this?

Was Hoffman a bad guy before the Jigsaw killings started?

When did Jigsaw officially die?

Why did Hoffman want Jigsaw’s wife dead?

Why are all the Jigsaw members in an AA like meeting?

Since when did Jigsaw’s purpose become so twisted? I thought he tortured his victims based on how they took their lives for granted. He actually gave his victims a chance to live but now, it seems you can’t win no matter what. Explain?

Where does Jigsaw/Hoffman get all this warehouse space?

How do they build all these weapons when it takes a lot of engineering skill?

Why wasn’t Jigsaw in the movie more?

Why did Dr. Gordon feel compelled to help Jigsaw with all his medical traps?

Why did that bum just randomly attack the cop in that crack house?

What ever happened to the whole ‘cutting a jigsaw piece out of your skin?’

How did Gordon get so far in such a short time after he cut of his own foot?

When Dr. Gorgon revealed himself to Hoffman, who were the other 2 people he was with?

At the end, what happened to Bobby?

Why did the main detective guy have to get gun down?

What happened to the cops that were gassed?

If Gordon survived, what’s to stop him from continuing Jigsaw’s work?

Again, I may come off as being a snot or ignorant but these are legit questions I found myself asking after the movie was let out. Again, it may have to do with the fact I didn’t see the last 3 Saw films but even still, some of the questions in there pertain only to that movie that should have been answered.

All I can say is that you really should have watched the 4th, 5th, & 6th film before seeing this one - so many of your questions would have been answered.

Oh, and yeah- Jigsaw actually WAS an engineer...
and he died at the end of part 3 - hence the voice over or flashback only scenes ;)

I figured that most questions were answered in the previous films but there are some questions that were strictly from that movie.

In short Hoffman was an agent that imitated Jigsaw to take revenge on the person who murdered his sister, when Jigsaw found this out, he kidnapped Hoffman and they made a deal with each other work together and carry on Jigsaw'ms work of teaching the value of life to people

Unfortunately Hoffman turned out to be too bloodthirsty and Jigsaw instructed his wife to dispose of Hoffman but he survived and that iswhere the last movie left off

Wow. I wonder if it's really the last one. It seems like they just keep coming out, year after year. It does not surprise me that there are some questions left unanswered. I have not seen the entire Saw series. But, I have skipped a few and the movies (except for the first one) mostly seem to have some unanswered questions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it!

As promised, I am here to answer your questions. First, you actually asked some good questions about this movie that I didn't even think of. So let me see what questions I can answer that others haven't.

-As far as I can remember, this was the first we ever saw of Bobby. He is just another new character they introduce.

-Jigsaw died at the end of part 3 if I'm not mistaken.

-Hoffman and Jill never got along. They had a different view of Jigsaw's work. He wants to kill her because she was the one that put the trap on his head that ripped part of his face off.

-They were all in a AA like meeting because Bobby was scamming people into thinking he was a true victim, and he was helping the others overcome the pain like him. It really had nothing to do with the other movies

-Jigsaw has had the same plan all along, it was Amanda, and Hoffman that took it too far. They changed Jigsaw's traps so that no one was suppose to escape while Jigsaw always gave people a chance. That is why Amanda was killed off, and Jigsaw tried to do the same to Hoffman, but failed.

-I wish I knew where they got all the warehouse space. Maybe they have a realtor accomplice too!

-Like someone said, Jigsaw was the engineer. Funny how he built all these things before he died knowing how they would all be used. Like he could tell the future!

-Why wasn't Jigsaw in the movie more? I complained about that same thing in my review. He was in part 6 a lot so why not in this one.

-It happened so quick, I'm not sure why Dr. Gordon decided to help him. I would have to see that flashback again.

-I'm not sure when the cutting a piece of skin out stopped.

-I think in one of the other movies they also show Dr. Gordon escaping the room, but I don't remember what happened. I have a feeling either Hoffman or Amanda moved him, but I'm not sure.

-I have no idea who the other 2 people were. I figured they were other members of that AA meeting group. Like I told Fearshop Mike, Saw 8 in a couple of years with Dr. Gordon as the new Jigsaw.

-What did happen to Bobby? Good question cause I don't remember what happened to him after he watched his wife fry.

-Gunning down the detective was weak. I guess Hoffman needed something that would kill several people at once. Same with the cops that were gassed.

-oh look at that! You also see Gordon as the next Jigsaw. Great minds think alike lol!!!

Hope that helps. It has been a while since I have seen some of the older movies, and there are so many crazy things that happened in the series. This was fun. Kind of like a pop quiz!
