Brian Gyss’s review:
Death Machine gets an additional star for having a somewhat interesting plot - otherwise, it's a largely unremarkable film. Craft-wise, it feels a lot rawer than other similarly budgeted movies made around the same time period. It almost feels like a DTV movie from 1987 that was transported forward in time 7 years.
Also, I think Brad Dourif pretty much solidified his standing as the "low end guy who will do anything for money" in this film - Sir Ben Kingsley pretty much rules the high end.
