Saw mistake picture

Revealing mistake: After Dr. Lawrence cuts off his leg and is crawling towards the gun, if you look at his dismembered leg, you can make out the shape of his foot hidden beneath his ripped up slacks.

Plot hole: Det. Kerry says at the scene of Paul's trap, "He had two hours." There is no way she could have known that. The clock simply said 3:00 and the tape specifically says "you have until 3 o'clock or this room will become your tomb". No way to know that's two hours after the fact. (00:17:30)

Continuity mistake: When Alison gets the gun from Zep and aims it at him, the gun is in her left hand. In the next shot it's in her right hand, and then it moves back to her left hand again. This is not an artifact of changing camera angles, you can clearly see the different hands holding the gun. (01:20:30)

Continuity mistake: When Adam pounds on Zep with the toilet seat, he grabs his shoulder in pain. In the first shot of him holding his shoulder, his hand is soaked in blood. In the second shot, however, his hand is much cleaner. (01:30:25)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Adam walks around his apartment with his camera (because the lights were out) the filmmakers put lights in the set so the actors wouldn't walk into walls, and also letting the audience see what's actually happening. In the movie, though, there are supposed to be no lights on at all. However, just before Adam opens the closet door with Jigsaw in it, you can see the reflection of one of the set's lights on the top of Adam's camera.

Factual error: The Swedish subtitlers made Amanda's situation even more tragic, incorrectly translating her dead cellmate as her dead soulmate.

Revealing mistake: When Adam is searching Zep for the key to the chain once he has found the tape recorder watch Zep's stomach - he's breathing.

Saw mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where. Lawrence and Adam find the 'X' on the wall, there is a continuity error. Right after they find the 'X', the lights are turned on and there is the shape of a square on the wall (the cavity where the box is hidden). Before they find the 'X' there is no box or any dirty lines where the cavity is. (00:54:00)

Continuity mistake: When Larry takes the box out of the wall, it turns itself around from when he's holding it, to when it's on the floor (keep an eye on the box's padlock).

Continuity mistake: When Larry looks at the picture with Zep at the window, from one angle the picture is all crumpled but in the first person view, it's smooth. This changes several times. (01:18:40)

Revealing mistake: In Adam's flat just as he starts beating Jigsaw's doll (Billy) up, you can see that he's not actually hitting the proper puppet, but a cheap replica. You can tell by the red lines on it's face, and there is no red marks where it's mouth is.

Visible crew/equipment: You can see the shadow of the camera on Dr. Gordon's sleeve when he is talking to Diana sitting on her bed. (00:34:20)

3

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Lawrence opened his envelope he got a key in it. When he tried it on the lock on his chain and it failed to open, Adam then asks to try it. Right when Adam asks for it, he puts his tape and envelope down separate, but when reaches for his tape again, it has ended up inside the envelope. (00:07:50)

Plot hole: Jigsaw is lying on the ground with a gun in one hand, and a tape recorder in the other; the tape recorder is removed, leaving his hand empty. If both of his hands were occupied/exposed, he would have had no way of depressing the button on the remote control to shock the prisoners. As seen at the end, when he shocks Adam the final time, the control is in his hand, not hidden anywhere else on his body.

Jigsaw: Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive. But not you. Not anymore.

Trivia: The intestines that are seen being used in Amanda's trap were actually pig uteruses from a butcher shop, as they looked similar to human innards.

Question: How is it known that Amanda was supposed to put the key around Adam's neck?

Answer: Since she was helping Jigsaw with his "game", chances are he told her to do it.

Answer: Everything is meticulously planned out by jigssw. He is extremely methodical and would have told Amanda exactly what needs to be done.

Answer: I don't recall at any point John telling Amanda to put the key around Adam's neck. That is completely made up.

Amanda was Jigsaw's accomplice so it would make sense for him to tell her to do it.

The whole process had to be planned beforehand. Ample time for it to be explained.
