Cheesy sci-fi fun
11 September 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Although "Trancers 3" is not as thoroughly entertaining as its predecessors, this straight-to-video production still delivers its fair share of cheesy fun.

Tim Thomerson is on the way to becoming one of my favourite actors - the more I see of him, the more I appreciate his comic timing and film presence.

"Trancers 3" is worth seeing just for Andrew Robinson repeating his old "Hellraiser" line, "Come to Daddy"! Here it's in a whole new context and is sure to raise a smile (or grimace) with Clive Barker fans! A darker "Trancers" tale than normal, this is a great film to watch with a few cans and nibbles. Enjoy!
