  • Unrated
Release: Apr 22, 2008 - Author: Playzocker - Translator: Victor - external link: IMDB
For this cut-report the Theatrical Version (R-Rated), provided by the US-DVD from Lions Gate, has been compared to the Unrated Version, represented by the US-DVD from Lions Gate and Maple Pictures.

The MPAA has never gone easy on the "Saw" series. Director Bousman, who directed both the sequels "Saw 2" and "Saw 3", seemed to be taking a liking in turning both movies inside out for the Unrated DVD releases - apart from the violence cuts demanded by the MPAA several storyline sequences have been extended, changed and recut. Although a few scenes are somewhat better in the Theatrical Version (the absence of some shots in the Unrated Version, e.g. during Lynn's death is rather annoying), the Unrated Version is the overall better version.
Surprising however is the dimension of the cuts. There are only a few extensions of violence that really make sense; scenes that are rather explicit for mainstream measures, like Jigsaw's brain surgery scene, have not been censored at all in the Theatrical Version.
However, most changes would most certainly not catch the viewers attention without a direct comparison, due to the fact that they are mostly very short changes which only in a few cases enhance the scenes' brutality compared to the Theatrical Version .

The Theatrical Version in Fullscreen as well as the Unrated Version in Widescreen have been released on DVD in America. Creditable is the fact that the Unrated Version and the R-Rated Version had been released at the same time, unlike the Unrated Version of "Saw 2" which had been released several months after the Theatrical Version. Also remarkable is the fact that the Fullscreen release is not presented in simple Pan & Scan but in a clever mix of pan & Scan and Open Matte, thus allowing for the relevant details to always be on screen.
We want to warn everyone attempting to watch (imported) DVDs via their computer that Lions Gate has put all sorts of copy protection onto the DVD, so your computer may not be able to read it correctly.

Explanatory notes to the cut-report:
  • Time data provided for both the R-Rated and the Unrated only concerns the recut scenes missing in one of the two versions (if not stated otherwise).
  • Changes with a length of only one single frame are not listed, violence cuts excluded.
  • Because of the differing aspect ratio of the two versions it is difficult to identify alternative shots. Only those shots differing in content are listed in the cut-report.
  • A "+" sign in front of the time data indicates that the scene is longer in the R-Rated.
  • If the source of a screenshot can not be identified properly: All pictures of the R-Rated version are in 1,33:1, all pictures of the Unrated in 1,78:1


Due to the large amount of alternative footage and recuts it is impossible to calculate an exact running time for the cuts made.
That is why we only present a comparison of the running times of both versions:
Running time of the Unrated Version without credits: 1:49.11 min.
Running time of the R-Rated Version without credits: 1:43.39 min.
The time data comes from the DVD of the Unrated Version.


Altogether there are 132 cuts/changes recorded, consisting of the following:
27 violence cuts
12 of those violence cuts on frame levels
34 storyline cuts
12 violence/storyline cuts
19 recuts
15 cases of alternative footage

Recut
Before Troy rips the ring out of the right side of his waist some recuts have been made:
R-Rated: 3 Frames of Troy i various poses were used here. (0,13 Sec)
Unrated: Troy pulls the chain off screen (longer shot of his face) as well as on screen before it is ripped out. (1,21 Sec)


Difference: 1,08 Sec

1,21 Sec



9.27
Alternative footage
While Troy rips the ring out of the left side of his waist alternative footage has been used in both versions.
R-Rated: Troy pulling the ring followed by a shot of his face, so the ripping itself is done off screen. When the waist is shown again the ring is already gone. A few extremely short shots of Troy top the sequence off. (2,46 Sec)


Unrated: Troy rips out the ring followed by a longer close-up of his face distorted with pain. (2,25 Sec)


Difference: +0,21 Sec

+0,96 Sec



9.58

39,5 Sec



11.48
Cut in the Unrated
Another shot of Kerry walking towards the mirror.
+2,58 Sec



Thanks to the cut at 9.58 the viewer of the R-Rated knows nothing about Kerry's nightmares, so the following scene in which she sees Eric in the mirror seems somewhat illogical.

16.48
Cut in the Unrated
The shot of the room in which the "Angel Trap" is placed is a little longer in the R-Rated before Amanda appears.
+0,42 Sec


17.01
Recut
The "Angel Trap" holding Kerry is only censored in one scene in the R-Rated, but this is one hell of a scene. Because of the many recuts and usage of alternative footage I have merged these few seconds into one cut and will be listing the shots of both versions in detail:

R-Rated (6,21 Sec)
  • Front long shot: The trap rips open Kerry's ribcage of which only a few frames can be seen.
  • Back long shot: The "wings" of the trap are spreading, the two halves of Kerry's ribcage hanging from them.
  • Front shot of Kerry - her arms go limp.
  • Back long shot: Kerry goes limp.
  • Several shots of chains hanging from the ceiling.
  • 2 Frames of Kerry with open ribcage.
  • 2 Frames of the acid jar.
  • Not in the time data: Whitescreen followed by a longer camera movement away from Kerry's corpse blending into a shot of Lynn and her lover in bed.


Unrated (10,5 Sec)
  • Front long shot: The trap rips open her ribcage which is shown very long and in two different frontal long shots.
  • Back long shot: The two halves of Kerry's ribcage are hanging from the "wings", her arms go limp.
  • 2 Frames of Kerry with open ribcage.
  • Kerry's intestines are falling out of her stomach.
  • 2 chains
  • Another shot of the guts gushing out
  • Several shots of the chains
  • Close-up of Kerry's open stomach, the picture becomes increasingly blurry.
  • Not in the time data: Whitescreen followed by a longer camera movement away from Kerry's corpse blending into a shot of Lynn and her lover in bed.


Difference: 4,29 Sec

30.46
Storyline cut
Jeff hammering against the crate after the first long camera movement.
1,04 Sec

30.50
Storyline cut
After another shot of the outside of the crate Jeff hammers a little longer.
1,67 Sec

30.54
Storyline cut
The next shot of the hammering has been shortened as well.
0,6 Sec

30.56
Storyline cut
The wall of the crate gets kicked one more time before it breaks.
1,33 Sec

30.59 (2 cuts!)
Storyline cut
Some more of Jeff's raging before the crate falls off the forklift truck.
The shot that is used here in the R-Rated is in the Unrated as well, somewhere in the middle of the cut – an exact indexing is next to impossible due to the differing aspect ratios, so I subtracted the running time of the sequence in the R-Rated from the total running time of this sequence in the Unrated. In the list of cuts this one is regarded as two cuts.
3,67 Sec

31.10
Storyline cut
During the first flashback two short shots of Jeff's daughter have been added.
0,13 Sec

34.13
Storyline cut
3 frames of Jeff's daughter are missing in the fast sequence after Amanda appears behind the door.
0,13 Sec

34.14
Storyline cut
The next few fast shots of the daughter have been replaced by 2 frames of a cuddly toy.

Storyline cut
Jeff walks through the hanging plastic stripes.
9,04 Sec



39.31
Cut in the Unrated
The sequence of the writhing Jigsaw with the closed-circuit breathing apparatus is longer in the R-Rated.
+0,29 Sec


41.06

14,91 Sec

Difference: +1,5 Sec

44.01
Violence/Storyline Cut
After the second flashback about the death of Jeff's son (the last shot shows Danica in her car) follows a very big change of footage.
Jigsaws tape is playing in both versions but the pictures are completely different.
While the scene is still "calm" in the Unrated, the trap activates itself a few seconds after the flashback in the R-Rated. So Danica is already sprayed with water when the tape is playing.
31,63 Sec



44.15
Censoring of sound
The length of the pauses between Jigsaws sentences on the tape are different in both versions; one passage is missing in the R-Rated.

Two additional shots of Jeff reaching for the key.
+2,83 Sec



49.56
Cut in the Unrated

In the Unrated a slightly closer shot has been intefrated into the shot of Amanda kicking against Erics foot, not really resulting in a more gruesome effect but a little jump cut – but one hardly notices due to the overall speed of the scene.
In return, the "normal" shot is a little longer in the R-Rated.
