Is it a bad sign that the idea of a reality TV show about criminals racing to the death does not seem as outlandish as it once might have? It is not hard to believe that a significant number of people worldwide would pay to watch something like that on their computer in the privacy of their home.
Because the concept isn’t completely unfathomable and because it’s a direct-to-DVD sequel, Death Race 3: Inferno really should be wilder than it is. Part 2 is solid B-movie fun and a big improvement over Paul W. S. Anderson’s remake. It is unfortunate then that part 3 feels like a step back. It wisely shifts the action outside of the maximum security prison but fails to adequately exploit the new location.
Death Race 3: Inferno is coming to Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on January 22, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
The newest Universal Studios Home Entertainment DVD Original finds the legendary Frankenstein in an unimaginably vicious new competition that pits teams of hardened convicts against each other in a blood-spattered, winner-take-all race through South Africa.
Inspired by Roger Corman’s cult classic Death Race 2000, the film is directed by Roel Reine (Death Race 2, Scorpion King 3) and produced by Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, as well as Mike Elliott (Death Race 2, The Eye).
The film stars Luke Goss (Death Race 2, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army), Danny Trejo (Death Race 2, Sons of Anarchy), Ving Rhames (Death Race 2, Pulp Fiction), Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II), Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2), Fred Koehler (Death Race 1 & 2) and Robin Shou (Death Race 1 & 2).
We have a look at the trailer for Death Race 3: Inferno, the direct-to-DVD sequel that reunites the producing team of Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt with director Roel Reine.
In this installment, convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas, aka Frankenstein, is a superstar driver in the brutal prison yard demolition derby known as Death Race. Only one victory away from winning freedom for himself and his pit crew, Lucas is plunged into an all-new competition more vicious than anything he has experienced before. Pitted against his most ruthless adversaries ever, Lucas fights to keep himself and his team alive in a race in South Africa ‘s infernal Kalahari Desert. With powerful forces at work behind the scenes to ensure his defeat, will Lucas’ determination to win at all costs mean the end of the road for him?
