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).

Trivia: Saw 2, Saw 3 and this movie are the only two movies that have an undetermined time between the end of the previous movie and it's beginning. Saw 3, 4 and 5 all occurred over the space of around a week.

Trivia: Reportedly, there was early talk of bringing back Cary Elwes in this film, as Elwes had starred in the original film, but not returned for any prior sequels. While he didn't appear in this film, he did finally return in the following film. Director Kevin Greutert subsequently mentioned that the original plan for Elwes' character in this film would have been greatly different from the direction his character ended up taking in the next.

Trivia: The unrated edition of the film includes a post-credits sequence - as of 2020, this is the only "Saw" film to have such a scene.

More mistakes in Saw VI

Jigsaw: Hello, William. Before you are six of your most valuable associates. The ones who find errors in policies. Their findings result in over two-thirds of all applications denied or prematurely terminated. Healthcare decisions should be made by doctors and their patients, not the insurance company. Six ride the carousel, but only two can get off. The decision of which two survive falls upon you. To offer the two reprise, you'll offer a sacrifice of your own. Two can live, four will die.

More quotes from Saw VI

Question: In the beginning scene where the two participants had to cut flesh in order to survive, what was to stop them simply putting other stuff on the scales instead of flesh, such as the heavy tools and knives and escaping that way?

Answer: The tools were chained to the tables, and there wasn't anything else they could've thrown down onto the scales.
