Violent action remake races to a high body count.

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.

...sets itself apart from its campy predecessor right from the get go.

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

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

Shadows on the Wall

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.

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.

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.
Leigh Singer

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.
