death raceAs everyone knows from the first Death Race film, that Frankenstein is replaceable and that continues to be the case as Carl Lucas (Luke Goss), a convicted cop killer is back once again for Death Race: Inferno. This time all he needs is to win one more race (to equal five total wins) and he is a free man. The only problem is that a billionaire hot shot named Nile York (Dougray Scott) has bought the rights to Death Race and he has other plans for Carl. He plans to move the race to Africa to make it more dangerous, but there is only one other thing and that is he doesn’t want Lucas to win. Can Lucas obey the plans of his warden and let down his team or will he take a chance and go for it all knowing that death may be imminent. The film also stars Danny Trejo (The Devil’s Rejects) as Goldberg, Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible) as Weyland, Fred Koehler (Pearl Harbor) as Lists, Tanit Phoenix (Safe House) as Katrina, Robin Shou (Mortal Kombat) as 14K, Jeremy Crutchley (Doomsday) as Psycho, Tanya van Graan (Starship Troopers 3: Marauder) as Amber, and the film was directed by Roel Reine (Death Race 2). Before we get into the review of the film, let’s check out some stats:

death race 2First thing is first and that is I loved Tanit Phoenix in this film because she is absolutely sexy, but we have some stats to get into here. In the film, Carl Lucas has about 29 kills although I cannot confirm how many guards were in the towers so the kills could be a little more than that. He does have an origin story and you’ll just have to watch Death Race 2 to figure that out. His love interest is Tanit Phoenix’s character Katrina and their love is definitely tested in this film. One of his crew members is killed in the film so I think it’s safe to say that someone was hurt. The big boss was definitely defeated, but you have to see how it was done because it was clever. They kind of do that thing in the end where they explain how everything went down so that it all makes sense and to reveal how masterful the plan really was. I am not sure if this is my favorite of the three films that came out, but I have to say that I definitely enjoyed this one because it has all of the racing action you could want, but man these guys are really bad shots. Death Race is a little more brutal in that department as guy’s cars were getting hit with everything imaginable, but this one had mostly body damage. If you’re a fan of racing and death then check this one out for all of that and drama and cool music. I am going to give the film an B+ for a final grade or 3.9 fists out of five.
