If you are seeking the world's finest action B from the 90's then search no further. Death Ring is an incomparable film that graces you with a trifecta of acting glory in Don Swayze, Chad Mcqueen, and Mike Norris. A good friend and I caught it very late one Saturday evening years ago and laughed from start to finish. It's a surreal experience that everyone should engage in at least once. It's now become an annual viewing tradition for us both and will always be. It's got action, horrible acting, D list brothers/sons, a $2,000 budget, and a place in B movie history. If I can offer you one bit of advice it'd be to get your hands on Death Ring as soon as you possibly can.

[color=black][font='Tahoma','sans-serif'][size=3][color=black][font='Tahoma','sans-serif'][color=black][font='Verdana','sans-serif']Even with a slow start and an unlikeable hero in Matt the film still is enjoyable. [/font][/color][color=black][font='Verdana','sans-serif']Chad McQueen, playing the best-friend Skylord, comes across as a much bigger hero than Norris, and Drago, as always, is just plain ol' creepy. [/font][/color][color=black][font='Verdana','sans-serif']The action is lacking but it is more than made up for by McQueen, Drago and the collection of mildly offensive 'Hunters'. [/font][/color][color=black][font='Verdana','sans-serif']This mixed with McQueen messing one of his lines, which is one of the funniest things I have seen, makes the film well worth watching.[/font][/color]

[b]Sid the Elf says: BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!!! Death Ring treats everybody right[/b]

In 1992, the film world was graced with the creation of the greatest movie ever. Well, maybe not to conventional moviegoers, but to real men and B fans everywhere, Death Ring is the definition of humans living that one moment when they achieve perfection. Chad McQueen and Don Swayze are the dynamic duo that are to B what Redford and Newman are to real movies. Swayze's contorted faces and McQueen's tough attitude and sleeveless denim vest(yeah, they're snaps) make this the best B effort yet. Then when you throw in Mike Norris and his wonderful overacting (take special notice to the completely unnecessary shoulder roll at the end of the movie- One of our favorites)and the always terrible Billy Drago. Drago's character, Denton Vachs, is the diabolical mastermind behind a human manhunt in which he kidnnapps Norris and offers the world greatest hunters(including the immortal Apache) a bounty to kill Mr. Collins on Vachs's private island. Is this the perfect premise for B? Come on. Does Sid the Elf jump out of a stocking? The planets just aligned on this one. So, if you're looking for a life-altering 90 minutes, involvig human safari, watch the best movie ever Death Ring. It is hands down the winner of the Sid the Elf Lifetime Achievement Award for Best B Action.
