Surprisingly, the film's most graphic scene - Jigsaw's wide-awake brain surgery scene - remained completely uncut by the MPAA. The filmmakers argued that it was no different from the kind of thing people could catch on any medical documentary on TV.

Goofs
In Saw II, Amanda Young slit her wrists with razor blades. By Saw III the cuts would have healed but left marks or scars. There are no visible marks or scars on her wrists but in Saw VI, the flashback sequence which took place during the events of Saw III clearly make a reference to the scars on her wrists.

(at around 1h 30 mins) Near the end of the movie, when Amanda's holding Lynn at gunpoint and threatening to kill her, the hand in which she's holding the gun changes with different shot angles.

(at around 1h 2 mins) When Lynn is operating on John's head, she cuts the skin from the skull and then clips off some veins. Right when she asks Amanda to fill the syringe with alcohol to clean John's head, Lynn turns back to wipe up some of the blood, but there are no clips in place. A shot after that, we see her taking the syringe from Amanda's head and squirting the alcohol on John's head and the clips are there.

Q
How many different versions of "Saw III" are there?
A
In the USA three versions have been released: The theatrical version, the unrated version and an unrated Director's Cut. The theatrical version was trimmed down in 132 scenes (most of them cuts due to violence to secure the r-rating). The theatrical version has also been released on DVD as well as an unrated-version which includes the scenes that were cut from the theatrical version. A few months later a director's cut version was released. It includes all scenes from the unrated-version but also offers some new plot scenes and an alternate ending.
