- Synopsis / Plot
- Set in Terminal Island in a future version of America, a prisoner (Statham) who is weeks away from being released is forced by his warden (Allen) to compete in a brutal, deadly car race alongside his fellow inmates. The world’s hunger for extreme sports and reality competitions has grown into reality TV bloodlust. Now, the most extreme racing competition has emerged and its contestants are murderous prisoners. Tricked-out cars, caged thugs and smoking-hot navigators combine to create a juggernaut series with bigger rating than the Super Bowl. The rules of the Death Race are simple: win five events, and you’re set free. Lose and you’re road kill splashed across the internet.
- Critics' reviews
"Though the picture doesn't deserve to appear on any critic's 10-best list, it observes the minimum standards of modern action films, which is to say it looks smarter, talks sassier and moves faster than almost anything else on the market."
