Having quite 'enjoyed' DR1, I thought I would give DR3 a chance, given that it has Dougray Scott and Ving Rhymes in it...well, now I wish I didn't! Bad acting, predictable script, boring effects, use of minor titillation (presumably so they can sell an 'uncut' version') all make up a very very poor film.
And the ending (no spoiler) going back over they cunningly achieved what they did, ala Saw and a million other films, went on and on and on...the film just needed to end!!!
Please avoid for your own sanity - remember you won't get that 1hr 40mins of your life back!
