Fast cars, machine guns, explosions, babes in hotpants - it's everything a 12-year-old boy could want in a movie.

But Jason Statham can talk the torque as former racing driver Jensen Ames.

Anderson serves up an unashamedly guilty pleasure that hits every note, particularly when the racing starts.

Daily Mail [UK]

The remake illustrates only how low modern action movies can stoop. Necks are broken, guts eviscerated. Fans of impaling and decapitation will not be disappointed.

Banish all memories of the original and you'll find this a slick throwback in the Doomsday mould. Tearing across the screen with all guns blazing, it's disposable, enjoyable trash.

With face carbon-frozen in rage and mid-Atlantic scowl in place, the Brit export is fast proving himself the most reliably fun actor on the scene, standing a good chance of becoming this generation's Charles Bronson if he keeps making movies like this.

Anderson's remake of the 1975 Paul Bartel cult film Death Race 2000 is surprisingly effective bonehead fare.

Once out of the starting grid, the film proceeds to edit the action so dementedly that one struggles to work out whose car just exploded, who flipped over and who's driving the one with the missile-launcher on the roof.

Times [UK]

This sci-fi fantasy about crazy Mad Max races in a high security prison is 8,000 horsepower of pure auto-erotic carnage.

Crude, rude, testosterone-clotted, meat-headed fun, mind, but its loud and proud lack of pretension is a relief compared to the pseudo-profundity of many blockbusters.

Chris Hewitt (UK)
Empire Magazine

It's nothing more than an enjoyable, ridiculously macho B-movie romp, but it's Anderson's best movie since the underrated Event Horizon. Perhaps, at long last, he's starting to find his - yep - top gear.

It's brainless fun, but while Anderson's brilliant staging of the flesh-ripping stunts surpasses Bartel's cheap thrills, this update lacks the sardonic wit and satirical bite of the Corman-produced version.

Director Paul WS Anderson has stripped out the satire and black comedy of Roger Corman's 1975 original and left us with just a straight homicidal Grand Prix.

Like a monster car rally without a Truckosaurus in sight, this is more about the smashes and crashes than the vehicles themselves

While the tone is right, the action is cobbled together in such a way that the only thing viewers will experience is motion sickness.

To a seasoned moviegoer who saw the original film, this version offers nothing new but updated armored cars.

Sean Means
Salt Lake Tribune

[Anderson] misses out on the original film's theatricality of the racers and the dark humor of making targets out of pedestrians - a satire on the audience bloodlust to which Anderson cluelessly panders.

Check out the 1975 original instead, kids. It has cars running over old people and women!

a balls-to-the-wall tank-ful of amiable idiocy, fast-paced enough to keep anyone's eye on the road.
