Packaging / Design

This steelbook is by far one of the cooler looking ones we've seen in Sweden so far. The front cover has a wonderful embossing for the operating tools, making them almost look like the real deal which I think is really cool. The entire steelbook is done in a glossy style fashion which is just perfect for the steel tray design of the front cover. The back cover feels a bit dull but it all works out pretty well anyway.

Surprisingly enough the cover makes no mention of this release including the director's cut version of the film (which it does) nor are there any special features listed on the back cover. The running time is also listed as a lot longer than it actually is but being as we still get the director's cut version as apposed to the theatrical cut I'm gonna let this one slide.


Disc contents / Extras

This edition seems to have pretty much the same special features as most other editions but they seem to be listed a bit differently. There's a number of different "Trap" featurettes, and I can only assume that these are in fact the same stuff that you see in the so called The Traps of Saw IV featurette which appears on the R1US edition for instance. The only thing that seems to be missing in comparison to other regions is the original Saw IV trailer which is nowhere to be found.

In any case the extras follow pretty much the same line as they have done on the previous Saw films. There a lot of info about the traps and the props but all in all it's not an extremely jam-packed release to be honest.

My guess is that this is just one of the first in a long line of Saw IV discs and I'm betting it won't be long until a better edition will come along and take it's place.

As a final note: The scandinavian subtitles are only available for the film and none of the extras have been subtitled at all.


Sidenotes

The packaging incorrectly lists the running time as 108 min, when it is in fact only 91m 36s (PAL) (making it the normal director's cut version and nothing more than that).
