Movie Info

David Carradine romps around in a loin-cloth as Kaz Oshay, a good-guy biker who hops on his destructocycle to participate in a sport to the death, in Roger Corman's futuristic gladiator motorcycle film. The film takes place 1000 years after the "Neutron Wars" have decimated civilization, except for pockets of domed cities. Surrounding the cities are vast wastelands called "ranges." Kaz is a "ranger guide" who roams the range riding horses and wielding sabers. The sabers are necessary to fend off … More

It's stilted, cheap and takes itself awfully seriously for such a bad script.

Audience Reviews for Deathsport

Death Sport is a fun and entertaining B movie in the vein of Death Race 2000. The only real difference is that people uses motorcycles instead of cars. The story is nothing great, but it manages to be a mindless action Sci Fi film that is purely designed for thrilling the viewer. Roger Corman produces this schlock gem and like his other works, he has the touch to create something fun to watch despite its simplistic concept. The acting is not great, like every other Corman film, but the entertaining value is what keeps you involved. Deathsport is a pleasant treat for Cult film fans, and it does manage to overcome its flaws by being an entertaining Sci Fi action film that relies more on its simple plot than anything else. The result is one of the original B movies that I have seen, and it definitely manages to be a memorable movie that overcomes its imperfections to offer a very entertaining viewing experience to viewers. As far as a Roger Corman film is concerned, Deathsport is a good addition to his filmography of work, and holds a secured spot in his career. The sheer cheesy nature, tongue in cheek aspect of the film is what keeps you involved from start to finish. The film is action packed with so-so acting and directing. If you're looking for a great, mindless B movie to watch, check this one out as it will surely appeal to you. However be warned, due to its pulp value, this may not be the film to watch if you're more of a common viewer. If you love, midnight movies that offers good action, interesting concepts and tongue in cheek dialogue, then by all means seek this one out.
