DEATH RACE delivers pretty much exactly what it sets out to deliver. If you're expecting anything like convincing character development (or ANY character development), a credible plot or incisive dialogue…you have not read the description of the film or seen any of the previews. If, however, you are looking for a film with lots of car chase action, gory deaths and more car chase action with a touch of gunfire…then DEATH RACE fits that bill.    It's just a couple of years in the …

REMAKE OF THE CORMAN CLASSIC
DEATH RACE       This is for those who don't know another remake that was put out there, but unlike most I was actually excited about this one. I knew that this was one that needs the brain shut off and that really won't have character development, but that is ok. The thing that I was happy about is that the original films legendary producer Roger Corman returns as a producer on this film, that's enough for me. I know some people were worried because Paul W.S. Anderson is the …

A fast paced, car destroying, people killing movie.

Loud and dumb action flick with the always cool Jason Statham getting involved in a prison road race full of guns and grime. No brain power needed to enjoy unless your looking for how Joan Allen got involved in this. Why do all the cars have the same color?

Jason Statham
Being a film that I've read Roger Ebert express disgust and disappointment, but at the same time Stephen King names it as one of the year's best, of course, one wouldn't be hard-pressed to become curious what to make out of Paul W.S. Anderson's re-imagining of Roger Corman's "Death Race 2000". "DEATH RACE" is very loosely based on Corman's cult favorite; the 1975 original was somewhat innovatively exploitive, with its satiric take on bloody violence, which made it fun. Anderson is a good action …

Ridiculous premise and nonsensical race rules. Yet, I stuck around 'til the end. Felt like a video game turned into a movie. Still fun.

Jason Statham, awesome. If you liked him in The Transporter, Crank, his driving movies, you'll enjoy him in this film. The problem with this film overall is that it tries to be almost a video game, super mario gets power ups, people get shot at constantly but don't die, cars are almost superheros, our hero lead character sets his car to "no damage, easy play level." It's actaully kind of annoying.    The Mad Max homage is huge, he drove a Jensen Interceptor. Jason Statham's name …

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):   1.   By 2012 the US Economy is completely ruined (guess it doesn't matter who you vote for) 2.   Prisons are packed thanks to spiraling unemployment and crime 3.   Private corporations run the prisons for profit (Serious business, as there's no money left for a bail-out) 4.   Terminal Island Prison runs pay-per-view death races as a fund raiser, using inmates to drive cars tricked out with weapons and armor plating …

Death Race is one of the best movies of the year. This movie is non stop action. I think that Jason Statham gives the performance of his career. Joan Allen gives an excellent performance too. I loved watching the bonus features on this DVD. Director Paul Anderson and the actors had so much fun making this movie. They share their experiences of making the movie on the bonus features. I loved watching how the cars were transformed into driving machines equipped with weapons. I enjoyed everything about …
