Death Race Inferno
Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas, aka Frankenstein, is a superstar driver in the brutal prison yard demolition derby known as Death Race. Only one victory away from winning freedom for himself and his pit crew.
Death Race Inferno pick up right when Death Race 2 ends. Frank Lucas is now thought dead, having been in a horrible car fire. He is badly burned and disfigured, but is given a deal. He will be surgically repaired, along with the condition he wear a mask and goes by the name Frankenstein. One condition he cannot tell his crew. He agrees, and as Frankenstein wins 4 races. 5 race gets you and your crew freedom. Unfortunately there is a corporate raid and Death race is taken over by the evil Niles York.
York wants to take the race to South Africa for a giant desert Baja Death Race, and tells Frankenstein he will be killed if he wins. From there we have 70 minutes of violent car chase mayhem. Even a big battle royal to the death between the women navigators.
The film is fantastic. Everything an action fan needs. It is the last chapter in the trilogy, as it ends where the Statham film would be set to start. The fights, and car scenes are all state of the art. My only question is, why does no one ever shoot at the tires of the other drivers car? With that question aside I highly recommend.
Overall 4 out of 5 stars.!
