DVD review: Violent Shit 3 - Infantry of Doom (1999)
We have come to Violent Shit 3 - Infantry of Doom, the third film in the Violent Shit series. Once again Andreas Schnass writes, directs and plays Karl The Butcher. Karl and his father leads a sect/ a small army on an island. Three guys gets stranded on the island and are captured, one of them gets killed whereas the others and a young asian guy, an outcast of Karls troops, become the subject of a manhunt. They decide to fight back.
Yet again it´s made on micro-budget and I guess most of the budget was spent on the special fx.
In this film we get war, zombies, ninjas, martial arts and a lot of over the top gore.
The quality of picture and sound varies throughout the film, they seem to have used different equipment or it´s perhaps a intentional move by Andreas Schnass but either way it looks really weird as the flick shifts between video quality and Super 8.. The acting is very bad as in the previous films, the plot is very thin but the pacing is ok as the film thankfully moves along at good speed. The sets and props look incredibly fake..
The scene where the three asian men fight a group of ninjas is hilarously badly choreographed but quite enjoyable... :)
Overall the quality of the special fx, this time handled by Sven Petersen and Andrea Pollak, has improved since the earlier films.
Rating: 1 out of 7. Violent Shit 3 is bad but it´s better than it´s predecessors but that doesn´t mean very much..
