The most epically loaded triple-cheeseburger action film since "Con Air." Driving-team maven Spiro Razatos handles second-unit duty, and flings gas, sweat and oil at the screen with the hard-cornered glee of having real Hot Wheels with which to play.

This is both a bad film and a bad influence, and on many levels. Still, for all of its brainlessness, it somehow manages a train-wreck hold on attention.

Lean on substance, but bustling with excitement; Death Race is entertainment in its most primitive form.

While the premise creates plenty of entertaining opportunities for violence and destruction, how much better could this have been as a true "cannonball run" coast-to-coast..?

An orgasmic mix of on-road mayhem that plays at 1000 miles per hour! Marvel in some terrifically-choreographed stunt

Director Paul W.S. Anderson really isn't known for Oscar contenders, but the guy understands over-the-top gratuitous violence better than most.

A must-see for petrolheads and cineastes alike.

There's some fine action, but the film never gets within spitting distance of breaking any taboos or taste barriers, which, for a schlock spectacle, is like racing within speed limits.

While not being the most awful filmic experience available, it's certainly one of the dumbest.

Petrolheads and gorehounds, this backfiring blast of cinematic carbon monoxide is your film of the year.

It's all pretty senseless and senseless is how I felt at the end of it all, after being party to a sadistic and deadly race that relies on the killing of its participants for its entertainment.

Neither as bad as you fear it could be nor as good as you might hope.

Anderson finds a few interesting angles from which to cover things, but there's nothing really memorable or original to wow jaded action fans.

The main problem with the new film is that it tries to make the whole thing credible, whereas the original never tried to make any sense.

Basically, it's a videogame masquerading as a movie, but the action scenes are so loud and messily edited that they're tedious rather than tense. If it weren't so incoherent, it would be a classic.

Death Race is a travesty of the original film but it delivers enough explosions, violence and vroom-vroom action to ensure that it remains entertaining if you leave your brain in neutral.
