Continuity mistake: When Alison gets the gun from Zep and aims it at him, the gun is in her left hand. In the next shot it's in her right hand, and then it moves back to her left hand again. This is not an artifact of changing camera angles, you can clearly see the different hands holding the gun.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where. Lawrence and Adam find the 'X' on the wall, there is a continuity error. Right after they find the 'X', the lights are turned on and there is the shape of a square on the wall (the cavity where the box is hidden). Before they find the 'X' there is no box or any dirty lines where the cavity is.

Continuity mistake: When Adam throws the picture that he found in Lawrence's wallet to him, the picture lands next to the rectangular piece of tile that Lawrence uses in the immediate next shot to bring the picture closer to him. The tile moves from in front of him (given it's proximity to the photo) to right beside his right arm/hand. It "moved" about two feet.

Continuity mistake: When Ali is pointing the gun at Zep, she is either holding it in her left hand or two-handed at one point. This is not to be confused with when the gun swaps hands.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene, Zep is seen driving a late 80's Ford Bronco II (could be a Ranger pickup because we only see the front). When he arrives at the warehouse, the truck has changed to an early 90s Ford F-150.

Continuity mistake: Tapp is watching the Amanda tape. Jigsaw says "look" and then Tapp rewinds the tape for 2 seconds. He presses play and Jigsaw says, "Look around" He should have said the word "mate" at that point.

Continuity mistake: Jigsaw's thumb moves between shots after Adam gets the mini cassette recorder out of his hands. You can see Jigsaw's thumb, in the closeup shot, slide down to a position where it's lying horizontal and flat on the floor as the mini cassette recorder is being slid out of his hand. In the next shot, an overhead, you can see that his thumb has moved and is now more curled and in a more vertical position to where just the tip is touching the floor. Jigsaw isn't dead, so he could have moved, but this shot is an *instant* cut, he had no time to move.

Trivia

On the DVD these interesting facts were told by the directors and writers: the character Adam is actually the co-writer of Saw. The Saw was only shot in 18 days and under 1,000,000 dollars, and it all took place in 2 warehouses and the writers/directors came up with the idea by wanting to make a movie that revolves around a single room and the people trapped inside.
