Best Of The 'Relentless' Series
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As with the second in the series, this keeps getting better than the previous film but also gets sleazier, so there is a good and bad material here. It's a rough film, make no mistake, but it's very interesting all the way. It has many of the same elements the two other films had: some grisly scenes, rough language but a fast-moving film which really goes fast considering it's only 80-some minutes long.

Leo Rossi once again stars but I liked his partner (Robert Costanzo) much better. William Forsythe once again plays a creepy killer. He seems to be typecast. The female lead is someone I haven't seen before or since: attractive Signy Coleman.

I did get confused a couple of issues such as how the detectives figured a few things out and that end. Also, whatever happened to "Marianne?" They do discuss something briefly but I couldn't get it. I don't claim this film is a great work of art: just entertaining.

Without giving anything I will say I liked the ending which wasn't the usual clichéd one. This is the only one in the series I would consider re-purchasing for DVD but it isn't available.
