Review: Death Race 3 Was A Bad Idea
Death Race 3 was a terrible idea waiting to happen. Nalumansi (read Lord have mercy) what were they thinking? The plot was far-fetched like water in a deep village, oh and not forgetting the hand to hand combat dear Lord!!!!
Death Race 3 Was A Bad Idea
Genres: Action | Sci-Fi | Thriller
A concerned movie goer said this in reaction to this movie, “Let me start by stating that I loved DR1, and found DR2 a surprisingly (and unusually) well-made and entertaining sequel, even if (clearly) not of the same caliber as the first movie. As such, I admit I had fairly high expectations for this third film, although I was not hoping for anything more than just a plain, good ol’fashioned, B action fest.
What you get instead is a badly edited piece of manure that lacks coherence, but is rich in really poor and amateurish performances, stuffed with mostly mediocre (and occasionally outright pitiful!) f/x. I cannot understand how the same director (and largely same cast) responsible for DR2 could end up with this mess! – Imbd
Death Race owner R.H. Weyland (Ving Rhames) has been forced to sell the rights to Niles York (Dougray Scott), a British billionaire who acquired the rights by hostile takeover. York reveals he intends to relocate Death Race to the deserts of South Africa as a Transcontinental Race.
Before leaving, Weyland arranges Lucas to have surgery to heal the infected and deadly scars on his face sustained from his gruesome crash. With Carl Lucas, also known as Frankenstein (Luke Goss), one win away from gaining his freedom, York coaches Lucas to lose his races and threatens his life if he fails to comply.
My final thoughts
Were they just amateurs or what? You could clearly see they didn’t hit each other at all. Mr York (yes Mr York am not making it up) accent is a rubbish translation wasn’t convincing. The earlier installment started with a bang but after Jason Statham left the flick, you can clearly tell that the directors are trying to make money from the old sequels which is a disgrace by far. Watch this one at your own risk.
