Death Race: Beyond Anarchy is not a bad film by any stretch, but it lacks the schlocky, insipid charm that made it's predecessors entertaining. The story is also lacking, since there are no real stakes for the protagonist to overcome other than winning the Death Race against the resident Frankenstein, who is not intimidating as a main villain.
Where Beyond Anarchy excels is in it's stunt cinematography, and the racing is no longer confined to a remote prison location, this time taking place out in the open, like in Roger Corman's original Death Race 2000. The look and feel of the film also has something of an anarchic, Mad Max vibe to it, although it wears it's influences on it's sleeves.
With that said, Death Race: Beyond Anarchy got very little exposure, even for a direct-to-video film. But it's cheap entertainment that will keep you relaxed and glued to your screen throughout it's two-hour runtime.
