To be fair, Death Race 2 wasn’t quite as bad as critics made out. It was an easy, fun to watch direct to DVD sequel which had some decent action, some fun characters and plenty of male macho violence. Expect more of the same as both the director and writer of part two return for Death Race Three. Yes, director Roel Reine and writer Tony Giglio are not the only one’s returning. As well as Luke Goss returning as Frankenstein, Danny Trejo and the gorgeous Tanit Phoenix will also be back reprising their roles. The film will also be a straight to DVD sequel, here is what we have found out on the plot details:
Death Race 3 will take place in a different prison in Africa, where the iconic character Frankenstein (played by Luke Goss) has to race his fellow prisoners in all newly designed and newly built ‘Death Race Cars’.
So, much of the same really, but then there’s not a whole lot of new ideas you can really throw at this. I am sure this franchise will ‘burn’ itself out very soon! No release details are available yet.
