Total Action

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

Jason Statham has become one of my very favorite actors and I have all his movies in my collection. This movie really beats out the old Death Race 2000 movie with non stop action and the special effects are just amazing. Love the ending and story line especially the way Stathan gets even. Don't miss this one it is really very good.

Max Max on Steriods

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

I had seen the original Death Race and this by far rocks. I liked this version far better than the original. Hot cars, High powered weapons and criminals what else could you ask for in a man movie...girls oh yes there are a few scenes where you get to see hot looking ladies (No Nudity or Adult situations) but this is a man movie racing, shooting, fighting... What Statham does best! The movie has appealed to a wide age group from 14 up to 42 and we all enjoyed it. Being the kids did not see or even know this was a remake never bothered them, they said that this is one of their favorites. Check it out I think you will enjoy.

had to get this for a gift!!! excellent movie!

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

movie is full of action... story is great for race fans and action adventure types! Actors played awesome in roles, was well thought out as to who the roles went to...
I think it needed more color, so much black in movies(doesn't seem real)but with this story I don't think they were looking for realism..
got it as a gift for a friend who couldn't watch it with me!
Valentines day!! heehee!

Great Car Action Movie!

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

I love this movie because it contains a lot of believable elements, I enjoyed the non-stop action from the start and the accurate mechanical know-how during the modifications of the wild rolling weapons. There was also great humor but its the intelligent kind, the kind that doesn't contain a bunch of nonsense bad language, Great movie, I actually saw it at he movies but I had to have it on dvd, definitely a sleeper hit!

Great

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

Since I purchased this DVD, I have watached it several times; when family or friends come to watch movies. I love action movies and this one is full of it. I didn't like what happened to his wife and what he had to go through. The Warden was one hard woman who had no feeling. Joan played the part. My husband and I enjoy action-packed together. If you like action, you will enjoy this one.

One of my favorite movies!

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

I love Death Race; it has a great story behind it and the events that occur in the movie could possibly occur later on in the future. It's a very interesting and moving movie to watch. I love Jason Statham, the main character in the movie. And the action sequences and racing scenes were amazing!

I dont know what to say, lol..

Review For: Death Race (DVD, 2008)

My husband made me buy this movie as he is a major movie buff and when he sees something he thinks he wants he has to have it. Any who comeing from someone who can barely watch a full tv show before loosing interest I have to say this movie kept me interested the whole way threw. Like most videos to me it was predictable, however, I have never found a movie that I could not predict prior to watching it. I think Tyrese was brave playing a gay guy and think that he could have took his shirt off a few times. I felt bad for Tyreses side men because they always got killed, it was a good thing that he did not. I liked the way the two main charaters plotted many times and worked together to get what they needed or wanted to acomplish their goals. I loved the look on the wardens face when two prisoners did something to make her mad at the end but I will not say what because well it will ruin the end. Overall I liked the movie, the action, characters, and would highly reccomend it if you like action and racing movies.
