A great action flick can be great with all of the right people to star in it, direct it, write it etc, providing great ideas for the plot, characters, and scenes, and for what it's worth the right resources. In so many respects than not, this movie hit those marks with flying colors thereby offering a far more satisfying and entertaining chapter this time. This chapter delivers on its every promise in spades by upping the ante.

A simple plot summary of the movie: Corporate businessman R.H. Weyland(Ving Rames) gets the rights to Death Race taken over by a rich, young, business opportunist playboy, named Niles York(Dougray Scott). York has epic plans to take Death Race beyond just Terminal Island Prison by taking it globally and also looking for other prisons to bring Death Race to. Carl "Frankenstein" Lucas gets highly affective plastic surgery and makes some secret business arrangements with Weyland. His pit crew of highly talkative but lovable stats boy Lists(Frederick Koehler), his Mexican/Jewish mechanic Goldberg(Danny Trejo), and his smokin' hot Navigator/girlfriend Katrina Banks(Tanit Phoenix) all get wind of Lucas having survived his accident when his Frankenstein mask falls off during a scuffle between his friends and himself fighting off some vicious inmates. Upset with Lucas's playing dead(even though he had no choice in the matter) Lists, Goldberg, and Katrina, are initially reluctant to help him out. Now there is a new sexy hostess named Salinas taking on the show alongside Niles York in the new location in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. The prisoners/racers are all implanted with homing devices so that they don't try to run away. Outside of miles and miles of desert and really rough sand dunes, heavy heat, and other deadly challenges await Frankenstein and company as they race to fight and survive through their such uncompromising circumstances.

What made this chapter so great is the way that this time the makers of this movie decide to get right down to the brass tacks and offer alot more action, explosives, still offering really hot women for eye-candy, much more scenes of racing, naturally, and more drama for the main characters.

Luke Goss and Danny Trejo still deliver on the excellent performances and laughs at times. Frederick Koehler(Lists) was half way decent as always. Tanit Phoenix was gorgeous, very sexy, and put in a much more memorable performance this time around. Even as Ving Rames(RH Weyland) isn't in this movie any more than he was in the last one, his character Weyland at least gets to do more in this movie this time. Dougray Scott(Niles York) was ambitiously evil, conniving, manipulative, energetic, sleazy, and always having his finger on the button both figuratively and literally, making him a villain to contend with. He needed a bit more charisma though.

The action scenes involving a rough and violent race while going through these bright white desert sands without weapons, racing through a town of vicious criminals out to give the Death Race racers a tough time, some anti-Death Race protesters, and just the desperate racing convicts in general of whom are prepared to win even if they feel the need to fight dirty all make for some awesome edge of your seat action.

The fight choreography between Luke Goss(Lucas), Goldberg(Danny Trejo), and 14 K(Robin Shou) among others and these nasty other inmates and the somewhat sexy yet deadly fight between the sexy Navigators was twice as great and exciting choreography.

While the drama between Carl "Frankenstein" Lucas's friends and crew and himself was a bit aggravating as they refused to listen to his good reasons for playing dead, it did make the characters somewhat deeper. Also, as Lucas wanted to do whatever he could to make total amends with them plus all of the things that he does for them at the end of the movie(Don't worry I won't spoil what it is that he does for them), his character remarkably becomes redeemable in a way that he had not been previously.

My only complaints are that just like the last movie the female nudity is barely shown. Also while the gore was improved some it still proved flawed.

In closing, if you are into the first Death Race movie, enjoy watching people race eachother, love lots of action, stunts, and explosions, love looking at sexy and attractive women, if you are a fan of Dougray Scott, Luke Goss, or Danny Trejo, love awesome fight choreography, enjoy character building drama, love added humor, and above all want to just plain have an awesome movie experience that Blu-Ray truly brings to life, then this movie is for you. Recommended. 9 Stars out of 10!!!

Listen, I'm almost seventy. But I never grew up. I live near THE, actual, Frankenstein
castle---in Bavaria---I put on my mask... that matches my blue eyes, and race to my
home-away-from-home in our, local, Mercedes' bus. The metal mask in THESE films
doesn't look very comfortable! Mine fits just fine! Look close on the bus's destination!
I have a nice home theatre with a Bose 5.1 surround system...
I don't need one of those 7.1 ; 9.1 ; or ATMOS surround-hookups.
WOULD like one of those rockin' 'n' rollin' theater chairs, though!

I highly recommend THIS! Oh, and the music was great too!

This franchise has a great opportunity here and seem to keep missing the mark. I like this movie - it's ok. I've enjoyed the first one back in the 70's when my brother first introduced me to death race 2000 when he came home after seeing the flick at the local drive in theatre. You would think after all these year the new franchise would give us so much more and yet it feels like your driving on a half empty tire when viewing this and the rest of the flicks associated with the 1- 2 and 3 series. I feel like I'm going back in time versus forward and this is a hueg disappointment for many reasons. It's the future for crying out loud and the sets appear as if they are from the early 70's...just isn't working for me anymore bro. STEP IT UP!

I gave "Death Race 3: Inferno" 3 stars because it means "It's ok" in Amazon's rating system. I liked the unrated version enough to keep it, but it's easily the worst of the modern "Death Race" movies. (I haven't watched the rated version yet.) First of all, it seems unnecessary to the story because the second film could have easily led right into the first film. However, I will admit that the writers came up with a clever twist to the overall story. (I'm not talking about moving the race to a different location. I don't want to spoil it, but if you give up on this film early on you'll miss the twist I'm referring to.)

Second, two of the characters' behavior is over the top: specifically, the main bad guy and the woman producing the "Death Race" show. They both do ridiculous things and make ridiculous statements, like when one of the prisoners makes a run for it by fleeing on foot into an area populated with civilians, and the producer orders the prisoner to be taken out by a missile; when someone reminds her that the civilians will be killed along with him, she says something like "they'll be rewarded in the next life." Is there no FCC in the future? Or police or government officials that would take action against the killing of innocent bystanders? This is insulting to the viewer; it's as if the producers of this sequel thought they could throw all logic out the window because the audience wouldn't care. WRONG. Sadly, the main villain is the type who easily loses his cool, gets into people faces and then screams at them to make his point. Ooh, scary. Then there's the cave these two brainiacs use as a control booth to run the show. Yes, cave. It looks like an underground lair Dr. Evil might use in an "Austin Powers" movie, with monitors and computers surrounded by rock formations. Really silly.

Third, the word "Inferno" in the title cheapens the film by overhyping it. (Big deal: there were flame throwers and explosions. That's nothing new.) Fourth, for some inexplicable reason, the producers thought audiences would enjoy seeing Danny Trejo's bare ass. VERY WRONG!

So what's good about it? The video is very crisp and clean, and the audio is loud and well mixed. If you've got surround sound, your system will get a good work out. Most of the actors give decent performances, and there's no shortage of action. There's not a lot of laughs, but Trejo's character made me chuckle once or twice. The twist I mentioned above is a nice surprise, especially since this is a prequel to the first movie, and audiences go into prequels expecting the plot to unfold in a certain way. As far as recommending the film, I'm on the fence. I had to see it to satisfy my curiosity, but I don't see myself watching it too often. I'd say rent it first.

I have Death Race 1 & 2 and now 3 an Action Sequel to Death Race 2 and the story is about Death Race owner Weyland ( Ving Rhames ) forced to sell the rights to corrupt British Millionaire Niles York ( Dougray Scott ) who acquired the rights by hostile take over and relocate Death Race to the Kalahari Desert in South Africa but before leaving Weyland ( V. Rhames ) arranges Lucas ( Luke Goss ) aka Frankenstein to have surgery & heal the infected scars sustained from the Previous Film Death Race 2 and only one race away from gaining his freedom so Nile's York ( Dougray Scott ) tells Lukas aka Frankestein ( Luke Goss ) to loose the race o pay with his life so Lucas fights to keep his team : Danny Trejo as Goldberg , Fred Koehler as List , Tanit Phoenix as Katrina , Navigator and himself Alive .

Not a Bad Sequel with good Action car chases stunts fights gorgeous woman navigators & explosions , clear picture and sound .

I initially got into watching the Death Race films because of the video game, Carmageddon and the the 1975 movieDeath Race 2000.

The switch to making the races more like Paris Dakar Rally through sand dunes and small towns really doesn't work as well as it did in the first two movies on Terminal Island which made for better and more exciting driving sequences. These films don't have a lot of depth to them but they have enough to string the action sequences together at a fast enough rate to be enjoyable if you are after an all out action film.

It is still an odd feeling to watch Luke Goss in an acting role having known him originally from the boy band, Bros. However, his acting now is a lot better than the singing was back then.

Just Like The Other Films Except This Time Its The Third Race And Frankenstein Can't Win At Any cost. Pure Action As The Death Race Moves to The First Ever South African Track In The Desert. There's hyena's instead of dogs and I find that real cool and the woman of the second death race have to fight for a spot this time. plus the track is a lot different a lot bigger and more guns and bullets flying this time around as well as missles on the track pure adrenaline. recommend to all death races a guaranteed A+ film in my book

well this is the third movie of Death Race and just like the other two it is filled with action
a lot of car races and blowing up along with fighting and showing true friendship along with loyalty
it will keep you in your seat and you will be pleased with this one as you did with the other two
really you need to watch them one, two. three. it is worth a afternoon for sure and im sure you
will not be Disapointed in the least.

I liked "Death race 3 the inferno but I thought the first one was better. If this was the series end it wrapped it up nicely. One note of confusion in the series though the asian, death race driver, who was the leader of the tongs, was saved by the lead character in the first one and returns the favor by saving the lead characters life in Death race 3, but I thought I saw the asian driver got killed in the first Death race movie...Then they bought him back for the second,since it was a prequel to the first death race, I thought he was already dead? But I liked the movie overall.
