BIG EXPLOSIONS FAST CARS SEXY WOMEN POINTLESS ACTION
Death Race is the ultimate action movie ever made i dont care if the storyline or the acting is shitty(as some other reviewers have said) the action and racing makes out for it all.I mean come on frickin tracker trailers with flame throwers and rocket launchers you are lying if you said you watched the movie for the acting this movie is insane perfect for adrenaline junkies its now my all time favorite movie. Death Race is about a man named Jenson Aimes who is framed for murder and sent to Terminal island penitentary. While there he has to fight for his freedom in the brutal explosion filled guns a blazing Death Race games, where if an inmate wins five races they get there freedom. While the story of the movie is predictable and super super simple and the acting not so bad it dosent really matter to me as whos gonna watch a movie like this for an intricate plot and Oscar award winning acting.............I thought so.
Now you guys are probably saying to your selfs "well jeez KingreX32 is a biased jerk he gave Avatar a 3 cause he said the story was bad but gave this one a 5 even though the story was worst" While yes that may be the case in my defence Avatar and Death Race are two very differant films Death Race from the get go was supposed to be an all out action explosion f-bomb here and ther thrill ride. And the Directors definatly delivered on that. Where as Avatar being sci-fi yeah we all knew it was going to be a love story between two different people but it was predictable I mean this is the same guy who made terminator and the stories of those movies were awesome and it still delivered on the action.
With that being said you like action movies? you like pointless action movies? Explosions? Then get to a Blockbuster and rent this.
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 … more
Mayhem rules inDeath Race, a head-over-heels remake of the Roger Corman cult classicDeath Race 2000, in which cars become lethal weapons. The strength of this new version is its total single-mindedness about vehicular homicide; it has the virtue of no cluttering subplots or simpering sentimentality. And banish all memory of the original's wild satirical comedy:Death Raceis as grim as a dinner tray to the face (a reference that will be explained in a key sequence). In a slightly futuristic maximum-security prison, cons take part in brutal races around the island prison, their violent deaths watched live by millions of viewers. Jason Statham, possibly cast because of his driving dexterity in theTransportermovies, plays a man wrongly imprisoned for murder. Joan Allen provides her brittle cool as the warden, who recruits Statham to assume the masked persona of a legendary driver called Frankenstein. Tyrese Gibson is Frankie's main rival, Natalie Martinez provides the fetching eye candy, but the acting honors go to Ian McShane, as the philosophical prison mechanic. One misses the cross-country race from the original film, as the setting here is claustrophobic and the cars are largely colorless and indistinguishable from each other. Director Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil) continues to display the sensibility of a video-game addict, which will either be a recommendation or a turn-off, depending on your own tastes. At least it doesn't have the hypocritical moral ...
