Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

The shot of the baseball bat at the very end of the credits was a joke between the director and the producers. When shooting the batting cage sequence, the crew demanded that Kizer shoot a shot of Norris putting his bat down before talking to the bad guys. Kizer thought the shot was unnecessary, but shot the insert anyway. All during editing, the producers kept asking if the "bat shot" was ever going to be used. So Kizer put it at the very end of the movie. See more »

It's all relative...
11 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mike Norris stars as an Ex-Green Beret who is possibly the deadliest man alive, however when Billy Drago kidnaps Norris and his girlfriend, Norris is forced to partake in a hunt, in which he is the prey. His only hope comes from police officer Chad McQueen who uses a chopper to locate his best friends as well as a survivalist expert Don Swayze. It's hard to believe that everybody headlined in this movie is a relative of a far more famous actor. (Exceping Billy Drago) That being said Death Ring is a competent Most Dangerous Game rip off, with some decent action sequences, some moderate suspense and far better acting then what you would expect. However the most entertaining thing about this feature is Billy Drago who gives a performance so cheesy, that he overall steals the show. However where as Death Ring is better than average for a B.movie, it however pales in comparison to Hard Target and Avenging Force, however it does remain far more enjoyable than Aaron Norris' Overkill. Then again though, what isn't? Also from the director of Hell Comes To Frogtown, who sadly doesn't put in a chainsaw wielding frog.
