Don't worry, if you haven't seen any Death Race movies yet, you won't have trouble following Death Race 3: Inferno. But if you haven't seen the one that started it all, Roger Corman's Death Race 2000, then you're doing something wrong with your life. Anyways, Death Race 2 director Roel Reiné and writer Tony Giglio are back for part three, as well as actors Luke Goss, Danny Trejo, Ving Rhames, and Tanit Phoenix. Find out how Universal's Blu-ray measures up after the jump. The 2008 Death Race is a prequel to the 1975 original, with Jason Statham taking on the role of pre-David Carradine Frankenstein. 2010's Death Race 2 is a prequel to the Statham one, showing how the masked-persona of Frankenstein is created. In that one Luke Goss plays Lucas, a driver for the mob who's sent to Terminal Island. He competes in the Death Race, does well, then »

Director: Roel Reine. Writers: Tony Giglio, Paul W.S. Anderson, Tony Giglio and Paul W.S. Anderson. Cast: Luke Goss, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo, Dougray Scott, Fred Koehler, and Tanit Phoenix. The Death Race series of films are turning into a bit of a franchise. The original, starring David Carridine, came out way back in 1975. Then, Paul W. S. Anderson remade the original in 2008. The remake starred a very angry Jason Statham. Since 2008, the lead role of stunt driver Frankenstein has been played by the soft-spoken Luke Goss. Director Roel Reine has made the latest two sequels: Death Race 2 (2010) and the film reviewed here, Death Race: Inferno (2013). Reine's latest is his best to date. Reine is perfecting the action film with his frenetic directing style. Meanwhile, this second sequel blends genres. The action genre is prominent, but there are elements of romance and the thriller genre here, as well. Overall, Death Race: Inferno »

I’ll be honest, I completely forgot Roel Reiné was going ahead with another Death Race after already presenting a horrid sequel (Death Race 2) to an averagely enjoyable B-Movie (Death Race), but low and behold here I am writing my review of Death Race 3: Boobs – um, I mean, Death Race 3: Inferno. Seriously though, I thought the above picture was appropriate because half the bloody movie was spent with a camera focused on Tanit Phoenix’s cleavage, only to pull away when a car blew up or someone died. Exploitation is one thing, but I mean c’mon, even I can admit the sexuality was laughably overplayed – and I’m a dude.
Here’s the thing though – Death Race 2 was an unnecessary and slobbish sequel to a B-Movie only hardcore genre junkies enjoyed, literally building up to the final conflict only to abruptly end the film and »

High-octane car-crashing sequel Death Race 3: Inferno's out on DVD and Blu-ray. Here's Duncan to share a few of its craziest moments...
Chances are that if you’re reading this, then you’re already a convert to the ways of the Death Race franchise, so what you’ll probably want to know is how the new film, Death Race: Inferno, holds up compared to part two. Thankfully, Inferno is just as much B-movie fun, sticking to the traditional sequel convention of being bigger, louder and considerably more insane.
While Death Race 2 made every effort to build up the new character of Carl ‘Luke’ Lucas (played by Luke Goss), while introducing his own story arc, Inferno centres almost entirely on action and makes absolutely no apologies for it. So what better way to review the film than to highlight the more gloriously bonkers moments that perpetuate the it. »
The “Death Race” movies are what you would call forgettable. The franchise started with the Roger Corman-produced 1975 film “Death Race 2000″, then was rebooted in 2008 by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring Jason Statham. The remake was followed up in 2010 with “Death Race 2″, a prequel that explored the origins of Frankenstein, a character briefly seen in the early parts of Anderson’s movie. Roel Reine, who directed that movie, returns for the sequel to the prequel, 2012′s “Death Race 3: Inferno”, which picks up where the last film left off. Or at least, I think it does. Like I said, the “Death Race” movies are nothing if not very forgettable genre affairs. You like them enough while you’re watching them, but once the credits roll, you’d be hardpressed to recall the plot. Having said that, I do believe that “Inferno” picks up where “Death Race 2″ left off, »
Universal have made quite a stock in trade of taking some of their fan-favourite franchises and cranking out straight to DVD sequels: Darkman, Tremors, The Scorpion King, American Pie hell – even the The Land Before Time series! One of their best current straight to DVD franchises is Death Race… Now in it’s third incarnation, the series is, in this reviewers humble opinion, actually one of the best low-budget action franchises around and despite any misgivings you may have, this third film keeps up the quality.
A sequel to the prequel, helmed once again by Dutch director Roel Reine – who directed the previous film in the franchise; and who seems to be specialising in directing Dtv sequels having lensed The Marine 2, Death Race 2 »
For a straight to DVD franchise, the Death Race series is shaping up to be something quite impressive.
The second movie, wittily entitled Death Race 2 was actually a far better movie than the Paul Ws Anderson remake of the 1975 Roger Corman produced Paul Bartel directed original that came before it. The trick was it told a compelling story with a beginning, middle and ending and shot the action scenes with style without feeling like the camera was on a bungee rope whilst having an epileptic fit. Pwsa may be able to frame a nice visual but his genre narratives always seem to lack a satisfactory final act and embrace style often mistaking it for substance.

ComingSoon.net sat down with Trejo, who reprises his role of Goldberg from Death Race 2 . In addition to »
I liked Death Race 3 about as much as I enjoyed Death Race 2, and I have two theories on why stuff like this happens to an intelligent person who can plainly recognize sloppy, low-budget filmmaking when he sees it:
A. When a genre movie is produced directly for the video market, a seasoned viewer cannot help but lower their expectations a little. This makes them a little happier because they spent less money, and it may make them a little more charitable towards low-budget components like wooden acting, cheap sets, or chintzy special effects.
B. When a group of filmmakers are given a limited budget, relatively free rein, and a goal to make a simplistically entertaining action sequel ... sometimes fun things can happen.
That's not to imply that Death Race 3 ever comes close to transcending its "made for DVD" lineage, but to say that, within the realm of what it's shooting for, »

But while Viktor is better, faster and more ruthless than ever, an encounter with a dark beauty (Caroline Tillette, Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life) offers him a chance at new life. But can »
Who would've thought that Roger Corman's 1975 cult classic indie pic 'Death Race 2000' starring a still fairly unknown Sylvester Stallone would one day spawn not only a remake, but a franchise?! Well, low and behold, we're now up to Part 3 in the series as 'Death Race: Inferno' hits Blu-Ray and DVD on January 22nd. The good news? Paul W.S. Anderson, the helmer behind the remake is not back for this entry. Instead it's director Roel Reiné who directed the previous installment 'Death Race 2'. And if you're ready for this new movie in the series, well then hopefully these 5 clips will get you pumped for the release. Check 'em out below along with the synopsis after the film clips.

10 years ago, the thought of a straight-to-dvd franchise would have probably gotten you laughed out of any meeting in Hollywood. Today, modest theatrical hits such as Wrong Turn, The Scorpion King, and even The Lost Boys have been given new life. The 2008 action-thriller Death Race is another one of these success stories, spawning Death Race 2 in 2011 and the upcoming Death Race 3: Inferno, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD January 22. I recently had the chance to speak with Luke Goss, who returns as Carl "Luke" Lucas (aka Frankenstein), reprising his role from Death Race 2. Take a look at what he had to say about taking another deadly ride as Luke.
This is your second time around as Carl Lucas. Are you continually exploring new aspects of the character each time around? »
