Welcome to the Death Race, where hardened convicts and smoking-hot navigators race tricked-out cars in the most twisted spectator sport on Earth! Sentenced to the world's most dangerous prison for a murder he did not commit, Jensen Ames (Jason Statham) has only one chance to get out alive - win the ultimate race to the death. Also starring Tyrese Gibson, Death Race is a "supercharged, sick and satisfying” (Nathan Lee, The New York Times) ride that will keep you pinned to your seat all the way to its insane, metal-crushing end!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Let Death Race serve as a warning, or maybe an inspiration, to any TV producer who says she'd kill for high ratings: Why not stage a pay-per-view car race in which prisoners compete to stay alive on the course?
Fresh: Death Race is cartoonishly brutal and pleasantly disreputable.
Rotten: The combination of good actors and terrible dialogue might have allowed the film a chance at minor cult status, if it weren't for the frustratingly inept action sequences.
Rotten: Statham's films never promise to be something they're not or offer something they don't provide. Death Race is not an exception.
Pure Adrenaline Rush
If you won't an all around action flick, check this movie out. It is the perfect guy movie. Explosions, racing, fights, explosions, shooting, and more explosions. Death Race is Statham at his finest. Definatley worth watching, but don't expect too much in the way of a story line.
One of Jason's best!!!
This is the best driving movie ever made. There is action the whole entire movie!!! Great plot and keeps viewers interested. If you like Jason Statham, you will love this movie!!!
THE Death Race
This movie has a ton of action and can be watched over and over. It has a good plot and is a shoot 'em up movie. I would recomend this movie to anyone who likes action and/or cars.
