Hostel: Part III brings the terror to America! While celebrating in Vegas several friends find themselves drawn into the world of a human hunting club. Struggling to survive they also learn how they became involved and what impact it may have on their survival. Though this film bears resemblance to the first two, it is also a welcome update to the franchise, breathing in some much needed life.
Acting was decent with Pardue and Hensley bringing depth and variety to the plot. Hallisay, Habel, Stone and Coy also did a fair job and felt solid. The remainder of the supporting cast was good with solid quality.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were decent though some of the low light scenes could have been better. Effects were nicely done, consistent with the series, and employed good attention to detail. More focus on plot meant less gore but it actually helped the entertainment value. Dialogue, sound, and soundtrack were all fairly well done.
Overall Hostel: Part III is a nice addition to the franchise that just might keep it going a bit longer. The plot is a bit different and the film feels like it is more mainstream, with better quality, than the first two. Franchise fans will likely enjoy this one.
With plenty of violence, gore, and sexuality save this one for the oldest teens and above.
Hostel: Part III is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 3 out of 5
