Vice Academy: Part 3 Reviews
I'm of the mind that you either have to make a film of this nature actually engaging, or so over the top gratuitous that it distracts from the other shortcomings. This does neither of those things.
Pass, unless you're just extremely bored.
Well we begin with Ginger's character Holly undercover in prison but the prisoner she is supposed to be watching escapes, holds up a liquor store, gets sprayed by some chemicals and in "Batman" fashion emerges as a green-haired bitch bent on bringing chaos to the city. Now Holly and her new partner Candy must stop her!
Surprisingly I found "Vice Academy Part 3" to be a hair better than the first two. Either I'm getting used to these lame films or I'm actually getting dumber by watching them. What makes this sequel a hair better is the higher production values. Don't get me wrong as they are still extremely cheap but look like they cost a couple hundred bucks more. Writer/director Rick Sloane also seems to be getting a little better at writing as he even introduces a few poignant moments with multiple story lines going on. Well the film may still suck but it's at least a step in the right direction!
Another disappointing aspect of this film is Jayne Hamil doesn't return to her role of Miss Devonshire and instead get Johanna Grika filling in. Grika does an admirable job (as good as one can look in one of these films) but Hamil made the character one of the few likable aspects of the first two films. Oh did I mention Linnea Quigley doesn't return?
So far of the three films in this overlong series I have seen, "Part 3" is the best thanks to the filmmaking quality being heightened a hair. It still sucks thanks to more lame acting and forced comedy that fails YET AGAIN but then again fans of the series should be used to these aspects by now. Originally this was supposed to be the final film in the series but thanks to being another success, Part 4 was soon to follow. Also note how none of the women on the poster artwork are the actresses that actually appear in the film.... no doubt because Ginger Lynn Allen was such a bitch to work with on this film making ridiculous demands and acting like a pre-Madonna by showing up on the set hours late. Hey, this film by not be art but that is fucking lame!
