Joy Ride 3 (2014) Review:

oy Ride 1 was really good, Joy Ride 2 was a simple repetition but at least it stuck to the rules of the first movie. Unfortunately, Joy Ride 3 is none of those.

First of all, there is no game. The highlight of the first two movies was the challenges that Rusty Nail would create in order for the victims to redeem themselves (even if they were almost invariably impossible). Here, the filmmakers completely gave up on the game concept which, to me, removed all interest of the movie. It is pretty like giving up the dream aspect in the A Nightmare on Elm Street or the traps aspect in the Saw franchises. Instead, Joy Ride 3 is yet another lame action-oriented slasher. Thereee is a lot of cat and mouse pursuits. The problem is that the pursuits completely lack credibility – up to the point where it gets totally irritating to watch. The truck appears always faster and able to outmaneuver the race car – I mean, seriously?

Another turn off was the fact that we see Rusty Nail’s face in this one… something regrettable for his mysterious aspect was one of the key features of the previous two movies.

Now for the movie’s defense, this one is a lot gorier than the previous – and there are a couple of memorable kills. Still, I felt like I was watching a gory version of Fast & Furious instead of a sequel to the suspenseful psychological thriller Joy Ride.
