THE PLOT THUS FAR

A group of hotheaded street racers are on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, a man starts tracking, teasing and torturing them until the end of the road.

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Joy Ride 3″ finally abandons its usual aesthetic and decides to get a little bit “Cannonball Run”. After a racing team throws a bit of a gravel onto Rusty Nail’s truck, they have engaged him in the right to be murdered. If you’ve bothered to watch the prior two installments, you know why this is going to happen. Rusty is a psycho who lives his life on the open road with the urge to kill kids. At least, the guy looks like he suffers from road rage, so it’s on the kids for their grievous error.

Ken Kirzinger is amazing as Rusty Nail. While I’ll always know him as Ronny Yu’s preferred Jason Voorhees, I like to think that he’s been able to branch out in his horror roles. But, what else do you need a big white guy for in these flicks? He’s there to scare kids and give the audience someone to support. After all, who supports the whiny screaming kids that seem to represent the whiny entitled little shits that crowd the roadway in your life? I don’t know if I’m projecting or if I’m starting to finally have a breakthrough.

The Blu-Ray comes with a Digital HD copy, DVD copy, featurettes and commentary as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong for a DTV title. While the 1080p transfer seems a little flat, that seems like more of a reflection on the cinematographer’s set of skills. The DTS-HD 5.1 master audio handles the auto action in a superb way. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
