Defeated in Sudden Deth...
15 August 2018 | by fmarkland32See all my reviews

Jack Deth (Thomerson) returns to the Medieval alternate fantasy where Trancers are vampire like and joins force with The Vampire king's son and the Tunnel Rat rebels to save the world from Vampire Trancer rule. Trancers 5 is really, really pushing it in terms of nostalgia and fandom from the earlier movies. The film is aimless and has no real zip to make the story move forward. Action is mediocre per the budget and the only thing this tired sequel has going for it is Tim Thomerson. It's hard to believe that the director of this is currently one of the best directors on TV. I guess that's one good thing to come out of this misbegotten mediocrity. Also the same problem as 4 is that the sword and sorcery era is not nearly as interesting as the Blade Runner inspired first couple and the movie develops no real momentum. This is the type of movie that is best described as "For die hard fans only" which is something part 6 doesn't even get right.

* * out of 4(-Mediocre)
