Corrected entry: The saw that Larry threw in the first film is straight and level near the wall. However, in this movie, when Daniel looks down the saw is now at an angle and much further away from the wall.

Correction: As shown in "Saw III", there has been at LEAST one other occasion between the first and second film where another character has entered the room and done something, so the saw may very well have been bumped or moved in the meantime.


Corrected entry: As we all know from watching "Saw" or "Saw 2" the mastermind behind all the traps is a cancer patient. He could barely finish a sentence without coughing up a lung. Even while recording the messages on the tapes, he could hardly suppress his coughs. Yet somehow he manages to lay in the middle of the room the entire time and not cough once.

Correction: In the first Saw he took a sedative shortly before lying down on the floor. Being that we don't know what type of sedative, its effects etc., it's fairly tough to state categorically whether he would or wouldn't have been able to suppress his coughing.

Corrected entry: In Saw, after Zep dies his feet are stretched out. However in Saw 2, his legs are now bent. It is highly unlikely that Adam would have moved him.

Correction: Actually it's very likely that Adam would have moved him. Remember at the end of the first film Jigsaw told Adam there was a key in the tub and left him in a dark room. Adam might have searched Zep's corpse for a flashlight, cell phone and/or key.

Corrected entry: In the crematorium trap, near the end of the scene where the doomed character dies, his jeans should be entirely burnt due to the flames, yet they are not.

Correction: They have only just caught fire so it is likely that they're still intact.

Corrected entry: Jigsaw says he's never killed anyone in his life, but in the first Saw, when Detectives Sing and Tapp find Jigsaw's lair, Sing chases him and hits a trip wire, causing several shotguns to go off, killing him. Sing didn't know about the trap, therefore had no choice. So Jigsaw killed him.


Correction: Jigsaw, for all intents and purposes, is a psychopath who's simply found a way to 'justify' his actions. Notice how he slashed Tapp's throat in a manner that should have been fatal. In Sing's case, his thought process was probably, "it's his own fault he got killed - he should have been situationally aware."


Corrected entry: When Eric calls Daniel in Jigsaw's hideout, he discovers that Jigsaw has changed Daniel's voicemail tone. However, several times before that, Eric tried to contact Daniel to apologise for an argument they had, without receiving the different voicemail tone.

Correction: Jigsaw changed it when he knew Detective Matthews was on his way to taunt him when he tried calling again. If he changed it right away, it would have robbed him of his theatricality and the reveal. It's all part of Jigsaw's mind-game with Matthews.

Correction: No, Obi removes the first syringe, then grabs ahold of the second one. This one, however, is difficult to remove (as it is the trap trigger), so Obi releases it again, twists around to get in a better position, and then grabs the second syringe again, removing it from its holder. Two syringes, but three attempts to grab them.


Corrected entry: Obi grabs the two syringes. However when he is being burnt, one is back on the chain. (00:38:20)

Correction: Obi didn't grab the second syringe. He just tried to pull it down. Since it was attached to a chain, he could not get it down. Pulling it resulted in the chain being yanked, and this activated the furnace.

Corrected entry: In the first scene where the man has the death mask on, the x-ray shows that the key is in his left eye as when you are looking at the X-ray the key is on the right. However the mans eye that is bloodshot is his right eye and is also the eye that he is cutting into.

Correction: If you are looking straight at an X-ray, then what's on the right is the right side of your body.

Corrected entry: In "Saw One" the pipe near the door on Larry's side has some green mold between it and the wall in "Saw Two" however it does not.

Correction: Mold needs organic material to feed on. If there was none (e.g. the pipe was not conveying sewage anymore), the mold would die.


Corrected entry: Not massive trivia, but a little interesting: When Eric and Jigsaw are going down the elevator at the end, it shows a shot of the lift from above. In Hollow Man, when Cain goes down the elevator after he finds a stable DNA bond, it shows the lift from above too, and it's exactly the same as what they use in Saw 2. It's never mentioned by Darren Lynn Bousman, but I'm sure it's the same elevator - check it out.

Correction: Similar looking elevator shafts are not the makings of trivia.

Correction: When and where? Give more specifics, so we know what to look for.


Corrected entry: Towards the end, as the cop moves through the house and sees the door in the floor by the bodies, you can see a full syringe on the floor. Where did this come from? At no point did anyone in that room get hold of a syringe, and even if they had, they'd have injected themselves with it. It can't have been used for anything, as it's full.

Correction: When detective Matthews goes through the room Amanda had gone. Amanda we find out had been working for jigsaw so would have known the combination to the safe. Since we have no idea how many antidotes are in the safe it could be that the one on the floor was one that fell out of the safe when Amanda is leaving.

Corrected entry: When Xavier opens the door to the room with the needle pit, right when he gets the door open, there is a shot of the pin coming out of the timer which reads 4 minutes. It cuts to Xavier then back to the timer which now reads 2 minutes 58 seconds. (00:50:55)

Correction: Time can pass between shots. Movies aren't shot in real time so a minute could have passed by.

Corrected entry: When Mathews is being brought to the scene of the opening murder, the female officer turns to face him, and between cuts she moves significantly closer to him than she was.

Correction: No she doesn't. The camera angle makes her appear closer to him than she really is.

Corrected entry: You can tell the finger agent Mathews breaks on Jigsaw's hand is a fake prop as it does not move at all in the shot until it is broken.

Correction: Perhaps Jigsaw is not moving his finger. He seemed pretty calm the whole time, even when he was getting beat up. The guy was also heavily medicated.

Corrected entry: When Jigsaw is retelling the flashback to Matthews and recalls being taken to the doctor's office to learn he is dying of cancer, the name on the office door is Dr. Lawrence Gordon, Oncologist. This is the name of Cary Elwes' character tortured by Jigsaw in the first Saw film.

Correction: This is not trivia at all, but an essential plot point. Jigsaw was torturing Dr. Gordon because of the callous way he treated his patients.


Corrected entry: After John tells Eric Matthews that they have two hours left before the gas affects them, they show the clock reading 7:30. In a later shot they show the clock reading 8:30. But in later shots when Eric is slamming papers down on the desk in front of John, the clock now reads 8 o'clock.

Correction: Spoiler alert: What's happening in the house happened BEFORE jigsaw got arrested/cornered. It didn't matter because it wasn't happening live anyway.

Corrected entry: How did the safe in the beginning room open? It is seen open when the cop ran through the house. Nobody knew the full code. Besides, Xavier was the only one who knew about the codes, besides Amanda, and was looking for them. Amanda couldn't have opened it because it was still locked when Xavier passed through the trap door.

Correction: There was a HUGE time gap between Xavier being killed and the cop coming into the house (enough for Amanada to take Daniel to JigSaw). So she has a plethora of time to open the safe, which she would have known because she helped plan the entire situation.

Corrected entry: After Amanda gets the key from the pit of syringes, she throws it up to Xavier, who frantically tries to put it in the lock, but drops it, and the time expires and the door locks. There was a syringe with a green liquid in it attached to the key, and, seeing as how all of the other presumed antidotes were green, that one probably was as well. So, why didn't anybody inject it? Out of all the people there, at least one of them should have noticed it, especially Xavier, since he was obviously the most anxious person to get an antidote, and he was the one who was handling it.

Correction: Perhaps since it wasn't mentioned by Jigsaw, no one considered that idea. Character Mistake and not a movie mistake.


Continuity mistake: When Amanda and Daniel entered the bathroom from 'Saw', Adam's body is shown with his right leg shackled. However, in 'Saw' and in Amanda's flashback in 'Saw III', his left leg is shackled.

Trivia: The needle pit scene was done with real syringes. The crew had to replace the tips with fibre optic ones. The pit was filled with slime to make the syringes slide around more. 120,000 syringes were used during this scene.

More trivia for Saw II

Question: How is it that all the dead victims (except Adam and Lawrence) are found? What kind of clues could the police follow to find those secret locations and still don't have any about the jigsaw?

Answer: Perhaps someone in the vicinity smelled the bodies and called the police. Each of the victims shown on screen appears to have been dead for at least a few days.
