Best Grindhouse 2008 - Death Race: Winner
Ex-con Jensen Ames is forced by the warden of a notorious prison to compete in our post-industrial world's most popular sport: a car race in which inmates must brutalize and kill one another on the road to victory. That is what Death Race is, pure and simple. If this plot or title alone does not interest you, then the exploitation genre might not be your thing. A remake of the cult classic Death Race 2000, this modern day take stars subtle action movie star Jason Statham, my favorite tough guy making movies today. Death Race is way more mainstream and accessible than this years 1st runner up. Action fans and Statham fans will not be disappointed in the slightest. Not much more to really say, the synopsis really and truly says it all. B+ Enjoy!!!
