I hate violent films - I think they are "boom-boom" films for morons .... BUT, Jason Strathams' films are definitely head and shoulders above the rest.
(I may hate violent films but I dearly love to see "louses" of this world get their bums kicked .. and even better: blasted off.)
It's what I call "poetic justice".Read full review...

99 cent movie off Ebay, mindless entertainment...
I bought this movie on ebay for a cheap price and the dvd is worth the price I paid for. The director tries to incorporate many ideas into this movie, such as death metal, racing, hot chicks, jail culture, and beefy tough guys all rolled into one. All the actors try to pretend how badass they are and it sometimes works but mostly doesn't. Tyreese Gibson, for example, has a role that he shouldn't have played due to his 'pretty boy' image. Even Jason Statham really doesn't seem to involved with the acting in this movie. Despite throwing in hot actress Natalie Martinez for eye candy, it doesn't help a cheesy plot.Read full review...
Great Car Action Movie!
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!Read full review...
had to get this for a gift!!! excellent movie!
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!

Totally an awesome movie, great story, hot chicks guns cool cars. What is not to love, and for less than 5 bucks gotta have it.

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.Read full review...
