Forget everything you know about racing. Desert-racing isn't about speed, it's about endurance and handling.
Hang on, I thought you didn't know shit about this kind of racing?
I don't. It's the first thing that came up on Google.

Death Race 3: Inferno was directed by Roel Reine, the same director as Death Race 2. It is a sequel to the prequel but still a prequel to the original which is a remake of Death Race 2000 (a classic!) I enjoy them all! As a Death Race movie, it has all the ingredients: beautiful ladies, sweet cars, guns, explosions, twists. But this time, the race goes to the Kalahari Desert. Great move! It was refreshing to have a new environment. It provided the opportunity to mix things up, add some warlords here and there, maybe cliffs, other stuff! Watching Frankenstein and his signature car rip around always rocks.
The same cast from the previous 2 entries in the series have also returned (the ones that make sense, anyway). Danny Trejo is always fun to watch. Tanit Pheonix is gorgeous and awesome. Luke Goss kicks butt, he rocks as Frankenstein. Ving Rhames is super cool. Dougray Scott plays Niles York, the baddie of the picture. He is one-dimensional, hammy, incredibly unlikable, couldn't wait for something to happen to him yet I enjoyed watching him do his thing. All the actors seemed to be having fun and it's contagious.
Sure, there's some editing issues (ex: navigator battle), bad acting, poor dialogue, plot holes, but hey, I loved it! It was fun, fast, ridiculous, entertaining, over-the-top, and knowingly so. There were some neat surprises throughout the movie, definitely at the end. Won't spoil it but I'll just say it all kind of connects in an interesting way. The makers of DR3:I have an obvious passion for these movies. An effort was made here like with the previous ones and I respect that! If you like Death Race or any other ridiculous, over-the-top, kinda movies, I recommend this one.
