DEATH RACE (Theater Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Death Race—high octane WOW entertainment—has a unique storyline and ends up being one of the best racing movies out there. It easily becomes one of Jason Statham’s best performances and allows supporting cast Ian McShane, Tyrese Gibson, and Jason Clarke opportunity to show their professionalism in the entertainment industry.


To earn money to pay for a privatized prison, a warden holds televised death races.
