Death Race (21-Aug-2008)|
Director: Paul W.S. Anderson
Writer: Paul W.S. Anderson
A convict living in a dystopian hellscape is mandated to take part in a dastardly car race.
Remake of Death Race 2000 (1975). Our society stands gripped by calamitous levels of unemployment and social dysfunction in the year 2012, leading to the creation of "death races" wherein criminals compete against one another for public amusement, killing their competitors on their way to winning their freedom as a grand prize. Steelworker Jensen Ames, arrested for his wife's murder on the day he loses his job and sent to the island playing host to the "death races", is offered an ultimatum by the prison's ethically-challenged warden: Race as fan-favorite masked champion "Frankenstein", or spend the rest of his days behind bars. Our protagonist chooses the former option, soon discovering disquieting truths behind the event's existence as he prepares to take part in three races.
