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 »

Action Packed film worth renting!
6 April 1999 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I have always enjoyed the films of the Norris family (Chuck, Mike, and Aaron). When I rented Death Ring, I expected it to be an above average film. However, I was surprised. It is, in my opinion, one of the best B-films ever made. It is loaded with action, has a plot which is very easy to follow, and had good acting. Mike Norris did well in Delta Force 3, and continued with this talent throughout Death Ring. He is a very underrated actor who deserves to be in first-run movies. Given a chance, he is very likely to succeed at the box office. Billy Drago portrays this film's villain, and he did well too. He has the talent that makes his characters very antagonistic, and in the case of Death Ring, very engrossing. He has you siding with the protagonist even more. The locales used in this film were interesting as well.
