Product Description

Amazon.ca

Paul Bartel's 1975 cheap-o satire about a futuristic international sport--an anything-goes car race where drivers score points for hitting pedestrians--stars David Carradine as a hero behind the wheel and Sylvester Stallone as his nemesis. The film is clever and macabre enough as a modernist satire, but finally overplays its hand in grim, decadent humor. The sets are gloriously artificial, and former Warhol star Mary Woronov is in sexy, comic form. --Tom Keogh

This movie is Great for so many reasons... Besides having stars in it that everyone seems to know ;)... This movie is closer to how things are in 2000 than anyone could of thought at the time... The acting in the movie is perfect for the story that it tells... Fans of Toxic Avenger movies will find out where the points for hitting people comes from...
They race across the USA and gain points for killing people on the way... The beloved leader starts the race and media spreads propaganda the entire movie... They make fun of so many things and its very well done... The movie helps show the media for what it is among other things :)... Some parts might be a bit boring, still for the most part its worth watching... Funny how in movie they blame things on the french :)... I see even today media makes fun of french to say least at times :)... Also in USA they always laugh cuz they like jerry lewis :)... This movie is worth watching just for the Corvette :)... Also it has Frankenstein without the wolfman or dracula to steal the show :)... Sly is in the best role of his life, he plays it very well to say least :)...
Stick around and listen at the end, the credits talk about an interesting story :)...

2.0 out of 5 stars hmm . . . April 30 2000
Format:DVD
did the makers of Carmegeddon see this movie? Well, I think having said that anyone who's played the game will know pretty much what to expect. I once heard someone say that this movie was supposed to be some kind of social satire, on Social Darwinism or something? Well, that is very difficult to believe. Sylvester Stallone's non-porn debut (yes, it's true, he used to make porn movies) is an all-out blood n gore fest, complete with ludicrous over-acting, campy gags, naked women and cheesy spatter-type special effects. While not everyone's cup of tea, and it's certainly not Ingmar Bergman, it is very fast-moving and fun (what could you expect from Roger Corman) and probably contains one of the highest cinema body-counts this side of Peter Jackson's Braindead. Rumour has it that a remake is in the works called Death Race 3000. Should be fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Racing to the Death! May 29 2002
By Timotee
Format:DVD
Who in their right mind would race and be willing to die? David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone would! Before Sylvester Stallone became an icon, he made this movie. A low-budget science fiction movie that takes place in the year, I can't remember, 2000! Yeah! The race is the most popular game show in the United States and they have to go from the East coast to the West coast in a couple of days. Racers score points by killing people from all ages. Horrible! It was particularly funny when the renegades put a baby doll out for a racer to run over, but the baby was fake and ended up being a bomb. KABOOM! Yes. Stallone's car contains a huge sword sticking out of his engine! How sharp! David Carradine is repulsive and all of the other actors are terrible. Stallone is the best thing that happened to this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy Aug. 25 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This look at the year 2000 from the 70's, point of imagination, is just as funny as it is disturbing. This movie is for the hit and run junkie, only you get paid for vehicular murder. The drivers race cross country in an all out frenzy to collect as many points as possible running people over. From the young to the old, rich to the poor, no one is safe on the streets of the future. So the next time you cross the street you better think twice about it, because Frankenstein ( David Carradine) Or Sly Stallone's car just might mow you down. The quality of this flic is a little distorted, and cheaply made, but is worth it's weight in gold, and should keep you amused the whole way through.
So grab the gear shifter and hang on For Dear Life, this is one crazy ride. Beep Beep The KritiK

5.0 out of 5 stars From Drive-In to DVD, it's still a blast Oct. 24 2001
Format:DVD
Yes, I actually saw this at the Starlite drive-in many moons ago. It's still a great flick, and part of the US culture. Points for running people over. The Hand-Grenade. Tricked out vettes. Stalone's over-the-top role. Carradine's vulcan-like emotionless "Frankenstein." Some of the best Run 'em down humor on film.

Memorable lines like "I've got pictures of you in my outhouse!!!" are peppered throughout. The stereotypes, bad acting, el-cheapo effects, and lame plot all come together to make one entertaining movie. It's a must for any DVD collector, Sci-Fi fan, or cult classic collector!

Super-schlock film by offbeat cheesemeister Paul Bartel. This film has it all, hokey dialogue "battered, shattered, creamed and reamed - the world loves you Frankenstein!" , bad acting, dodgy FX, and ridiculous characters. True Brilliance. Never takes itself seriously (although David Carradine does try) as racers compete for points by winning race stages across america and killing pedestrians on the way. I guess its the only film to feature a "Euthanasia Day". This film is an absolute icon of 70's budget sci-fi. Even Stallone doesn't do a bad job.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of Stallone's worst movies ever made April 27 2001
Format:DVD
I decided to watch this movie, because I happen to be a fan of Stallone, but this movie was poorly directed, and poorly made. Stallone did a great job acting in it, and the plot was, a little sketchy. It was sort of unclear and hard to follow. It was a good idea to make a movie that had this kind of popular sport in it, but like I said, the acting and casting was ok, but the directing, and the plot made this movie plunge into the dark pits of wrath. I only recommend this movie for Sylvester Stallone fans who have the extra time and patience to sit and see Stallone act.
