In the Film


In the film, Jigsaw's real name is Billy 'The Beaut' Russoti and nothing known about his own biography.

First Confrontation with The Punisher and Transformation

While attending a meeting, Frank Castle (also known as the Punisher) attacks and kills a mob family, but Billy escapes and is pursued by Castle. Later, Billy accidentally falls into a glass crusher and Castle turns the machine on, grinding Billy against the broken glass bottles. Although Billy does not die, his face is horrifically mutilated, leaving him permanently disfigured. His plastic surgeon is unable to restore his face, stating that Billy's facial muscles, tendons and skin were damaged beyond repair, leaving him with his trademark disfigurement. After killing the surgeon, he chooses to remain focused on killing the Punisher and adopts the name 'Jigsaw', claiming that Billy is now dead.

Freeing his Brother and Creating Army

Jigsaw soon breaks his mentally unstable brother, James 'Loony Bin Jim' Russoti, out of a mental hospital and they plan their revenge on the Punisher. They then confront a group of criminals and convince them to help take down Castle, to which they agree.

Battle in the Hotel

Jigsaw and his army then travel to the Brad Street Hotel where they battle Castle in brutal gunfight, who kills all of the criminals before finally facing Jigsaw and Loony Bin Jim. Later, Castle faces Loony Bin Jim in brutal fight, but fails to kill him.

Final Showdown and Death

Castle shoots Loony Bin Jim in the head before fighting Jigsaw, eventually stabbing him through the chest with a sharp pole and throwing him onto a fire, where he is promptly burnt to death after violent fight.
