Death Race: Inferno – Movie 24 of 365

Death Race: Inferno - Movie 24 of 365

The sequel to the prequel and still no Jason Statham. That’s okay, the story works well without him. I had been hesitant to watch Death Race 2 because it was direct to video and and no Jason, but was pleasantly surprise at how well it was plotted out and executed. Plus Sean Bean was in that one. This one has the same pit crew from the second installment including Lists (Fred Koehler) who has been in all three.

However, this time we are not on Terminal Island. Death Race is going global, to Africa. Don’t worry the story does get around fitting back into the first Death Race story, even if a bit far fetched. But you don’t really watch it for the plot. You watch it for the cars, the guns, the drivers and the babes. Moving the location did set up for some interesting new aspects of the race although I do tire of Africans being portrayed as either militants or shanty town dwellers. Back is the Death Race televised segments and graphics although they really don’t spend time building up the drivers characters as before. That was disappointing I actually thought that enhanced the story.

Overall not a bad flick although some of special effects are sloppy and the story-line gets muddled racing to the end. I’d still watch it again, cause Death Race is definitely a guilty pleasure.
