Corrected entry: Someone as high in the police rankings as Hoffman couldn't possibly set up all the elaborate traps as well as kidnap all the victims without noticeably neglecting his law enforcement duties. He rushes the main traps of this film into motion, but the engineering on them alone would take days if not weeks to accomplish.

Correction: Hoffman is following the Jigsaw case on it's own. No other work. There is plenty of time for him to kidnap the victims. As for the engineering part, we know he has been planning this for sometime as, as shown in other films, he's been working with Jigsaw from shortly after the events of Saw. So a few years.

Corrected entry: When William escapes his first test and lifts his shirt up to see what the enormous bloodstain is from, he finds the surgical stitched-up would on his side, with a single stream of blood beginning to seep off of it, and the rest of his side is perfectly clean. The size of the wound, and the small amount of blood on his side contradict the enormous blood-stain on his shirt. If he was losing enough blood to create a stain that big, there should have been more blood on his side, either from the wound, or from the saturated shirt rubbing it on him.

Correction: We don't know how long it was after the cut was made that William begins his tests. Therefore it's safe to assume that the blood is from when the cut was made. If it was long enough ago, the blood wouldn't rub onto him. The new stream of blood is where he has reopened the wound.

Corrected entry: When Hank (the janitor) is killed, we see his white under-shirt being stained red with blood. However, as the blood flows out and begins to soak into his blue overalls/shirt, his blue clothes don't stain properly. While his white shirt turns red, his blue clothes simply get wet as if soaking with water, but don't discolor at all from the red blood. This reveals some sort of fake blood was used, as it doesn't "stain" properly on his darker clothes, only on his white shirt.

Correction: I just watched this. If you lok carefully, the blood stains his darker clothers a darker red. You can't expect the same colour of redness on a blue shirt and a white shirt. The fact it just goes darker is correct.

Corrected entry: In the steam trap a 90 second timer is shown, though the scene between the start of the timer and the end of the timer takes 3 min 20 sec.


Correction: There is a difference from real time and movie time.

Corrected entry: In the opening "game" of the film, Simone is forced to remove flesh to stay alive. We then see her sever an arm with a few blows from a hatchet in order to win the game. The arm is removed about 3 inches below the elbow but a later scene in the hospital shows a bandage with the arm completely gone from far above the elbow. Furthermore, modern advances in limb re-attachment allow for a limb to be re-attached up to a full day after the accident. Why didn't the doctors in the OR simply re-attach the arm that had been lobbed off?


Correction: For all we know, this could happen in the past, when medical science were not as advanced, or she had to left her arm there. It's also possible her arm was too badly damaged to save. Bottom line, this isn't considered a movie mistake.


Corrected entry: The acid is strong enough to dissolve the concrete floor. If it is that strong, wouldn't it have dissolved the container holding it and the tubes connected to the needles?

Correction: Because, like in real life, the acid in the film does not have to ability to eat away at everything. The containers are probably made from a substance that the acid does not affect.


Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, Hoffman retracts the walls of the room where Agent Strahm has been squashed. The whole body drops to the floor. However, Strahm's hand remains untouched. Now considering the walls shut completely, his hand would have not survived if they were powerful enough to crush his body.

Correction: The hand was holding onto the grating above the chamber, where there was room at the very top between the grating and the closed walls.

Correction: The gun is only not visible because it is out of sight of the camera.

Continuity mistake: When William sees the way forward, he puts his hand on the glass. There is no blood on the glass from the previous shot, and in the next shot, when he tells Addy to be careful, the blood is back. (00:39:20)

More quotes from Saw VI

Trivia: Similar to the previous two films, the writers crafted "Saw VI" to contain subtle parallels and similarities to the original trilogy - in this case most notably "Saw III." These include: -Both films involve the rebellion of Jigsaw's apprentice who has started to become violent/controlling and drift from his methodology. (Amanda/Hoffman) -Both films include a key sequence involving a letter to Amanda. (Amanda discovers the letter in "Saw III", "Saw VI" finally reveals its contents) -Both films involve two separate games going on at the same time involving different people that are revealed to be family in the climax. (In "Saw III", a twist reveals that Jeff and Lynn are husband and wife / In "Saw VI", you discover that William and the imprisoned reporter are siblings during the final act.) -Both films contain a theme of revenge. (Jeff in "Saw III" wanting revenge for his son's accidental death / The family of the man who died due to being refused coverage for a life-saving treatment want revenge on William) -The theme of revenge is acted upon in the final moments of the film. (Jeff kills Jigsaw / The son of the dead man kills William) -Both end with Jigsaw's apprentice being killed/nearly killed. (Amanda dies / Hoffman is severely wounded).

More trivia for Saw VI

Question: What would happen if William would stand on the other side of the cage? Then needles wouldn't stuck into him. Needles would hit the cage and start sprinkle acid in direction of mother and son, most likely hurting them. We learn from previous movies that Jigsaw planned his traps very carefully ,so he wouldn't allow that mother and son would hurt in any case.


Chosen answer: The trap wouldn't have worked if William stood on the other side of the cage. When William walks towards the mother and son, you see a closeup of his feet stepping onto a pressure-pad that activates the trap. If William stood on the other side of the cage, the trap would never have turned on because the pressure-pad would not have been set off, and nobody would have died. Also, even though Jigsaw pre-plans his traps, there certainly are circumstances where the mother and son could have gotten hurt. One must remember, Jigsaw is insane, and it's shown repeatedly in the series that even though he intends to help people, he is not above sacrificing people or putting innocent people in harm's way to teach his subjects a lesson. (The most prominent examples being the mother and daughter from the original film and Joyce from "Saw 3D" who were innocent but placed in direct danger to be a motivation for the subjects).
