I wold rather be in it than watch it again
25 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have a lot of love for 'Death Race 2000' and (surprisingly) quite a lot of love for the two remakes.

'Death Race 3' is where Death Race love goes to die... then is stamped on, run over, before its battered body is dragged through the desert behind a gun-laden car, except the guns are obviously lengths of painted drain pipe, and one has snapped but the production crew have run out of duck tape so it swings flaccidly while Love for Death Race turns to ash and blows away in the wind..

Death Race 3 is an endurance race through the desert, the 'film' Death Race 3 is a survival test through stroke inducing bad dialogue, acting that is so horrible a new word is needed to describe its severity, wonky cameras, rubbish fight scenes and a make-up department so inept they even managed to make Taint Phoenix look rough.

Everything about this movie is bad. It has a production level way below the likes of 'Mega Shark vs Giant Octpus'. The direction is the clumsiest I have ever seen (this is coming from the man who gave 'Zombie Women of Satan' a 7!)

Scene: Where could we be? Well there's a red bus in the back ground, some church bells and a good old Bobbie pounding the beat. Are we in London by any chance?

Scene: What's that Mr York? You don't appreciate your secretary? Well how could you possibly communicate your feelings to the audience, short of punching her in the stomach. Oh, like that.

Don't be sold by the high calibre of the cast. I get the feeling the actors had real guns trained on them or they awoke one day unable to account for the last two months of their lives, their sun tans and the massive amount of rohypnol in their systems. Possible both.
