The movie is a prequel for one that I had never seen. It is designed to shore up some rough plot points by describing how the "death race" came about while ignoring the blatant disregard for the constitution. Oh wait. Private corporations run prisons so the constitution is suspended, just like in real life. What is it with Corman and Frankenstein in a Death Race? For those of you who would rate "Death Race 2000" at 5 stars, give this 4 stars. Luke Gross is no David Caradine.
PARENTAL GUIDE: Nudity, sex, and violence. Is there any real need to discuss the plot?
Danny Trejo as Goldberg,Sean Bean as Markus Kane,and others.Robin Shou and Fred Koehler are the only other two to appear from the first film,the rest are all newcomers to the franchise.The film lacks the spark and drive(sorry for the pun)that the first one had.
This story is a prequel to the first,so we see the genesis of the race itself.The first part of the movie deals with Death Match,the on going and current form of entertainment/fighting,run by Weyland.Before this we are intro'd to Lucas who is the go-to guy for a crime boss by the name of Kane.He dispatches his man to hit a bank.Lucas in turn hires three fellows he has worked with before,but before you can say"who shot the sheriff?",things go south.While Lucas awaits out front two policemen happen to walk inside.His men ignore his radio call to abort the job.When the smoke clears security guards,the cops and one of Lucas' men are dead.A wild police chase ensues and Lucas gets caught.And of course Lucas will end up on....Terminal Island.
Kane is fidgety and thinks Lucas will out his involvement at some point.He hires several men to take Lucas out before he can "rat" him out.Inside Lucas gets his trial by fire and he is soon fist fighting in the Death Match.Weyland,the head of the entertainment company that runs the match itself,is having a problem with the ratings.His announcer/TV host Jones comes up with an idea.That germinates into action and the Death Race is born.
To start,there are twice as many drivers as there are cars.They run,punch and kill their way to the vehicles and the race goes from there.Read more ›
reviewer for that matter or even a number one.but i know what i like and there is not one dam
soul who is going tell me what i should like or not like.i know i like this movie because it has it's own
story from the previous one and the presence of Jason Statham not being there is a big hole
i have to say. Luke Gross was missing something in his performance maybe it was his short
hair.but they sure have a lot of nice women in here i got to say some that was killed too so sad.
now i have to give top props to Ving Rhames for his performance.
exist.it has it's own story.and for me,it's a better movie.it takes
time to build a story,to develop a plot and some characters.there's
more going on here than in the original movie.it's just as brusquely
violent as the first one was,but i actually found it much more
exciting.the acting was actually pretty decent.much better than i would
have expected given that the movie was a direct to video release with
mostly unknown actors.the movie won't change your life or anything,but
it will get your adrenaline pumping for 90 plus minutes.for me,Death
Race 2 is a 4/5
Received great service from the seller, delivery was early and product was in advertised condition. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a hour and half of simple entertainment.
