No substitute for it's predecessors, but a reasonable time waster
24 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the 1990s direct to video Action movies were a big money maker. They paled in comparison to their big screen counterparts, but provided good mindless entertainment. If one of these films did well in rentals and sales a sequel was inevitable, but almost always unnecessary. Mark L. Lester's 1982 cult classic 'Class of 1984' didn't really need a sequel, but the one we got expanded on the themes in the original instead of being a pointless rehash. The same however can not be said for this installment, which adds nothing new or interesting to the genre. That doesn't stop it from being a mildly entertaining cheesy Action/Science Fiction flick.

Pros: Acting that's better than you'd expect from this type of movie. Pretty good score. Charges along at a fast pace. Though low key, there are some fun action sequences. A decent amount of cheese. A good unexpected twist.

Cons: Virtually without plot. Looks more like it was made for the small screen than the big one thanks to Spiro Razatos's direction. Brings nothing new to the table. Looks and feels like a cheap production. For example, the post-apocalyptic look of the previous film is totally absent here. For an Action film this is pretty watered down.

Final thoughts: After such a strong start this series has seriously declined in quality. This third, and so far final installment doesn't justify it's existence and isn't worth going out of one's way to find, but if you're bored then this will do in a pinch. Mark L. Lester was smart to opt out of this one, but it could have been worse.

My rating: 2.5/5
