Death Race 2 Reviews

  • Feb 19, 2021

    This movie is exactly what anyone should have expected when they ordered it & it is a solid three star flick. Preposterous plot plays out okay but the development phase is way too long. They spend at least a third of the movie developing relationships, situations that lead up to the race, etc. Gross looks the part & does a good job in his role but the rest, for the better part, fall short of acting the part. Synopsis: Goss likes & respects his mafia boss & agrees to do a poorly planned bank heist that he does not believe in. Of course it goes bad, he shoots and kills a cop, & goes to a privately controlled prison that promotes televised violence in the prison in order to make money. They come up with the idea of a 'Death Race' inside the prison compound where the prisoners are allowed to have access to & to use heavy weapons to kills the competition. (Yea right!) Lots of CGI makes parts of it come off as a modern day Saturday morning cartoon. On Day 2 of the race Goss is badly burned & comes back on Day 3 in a mask & dubbed 'Frankenstein'. Subplot: Goss' mafia boss puts out a contract on Goss for fear that Goss will role over to the federal authorities. Almost no skin, unfortunately, which is needed in this type of movie to complete the testosterone fueled genre. Kind of a mindless but somewhat entertaining flick. Enjoy...

    "Death Race" a lot of death, some racing, and a lot of fun.

    Danny Trejo is the only redeeming factor in this movie. And yet another movie Sean Bean dies in.

    first one was a fun and cool mindless action. this is just trash. everything about this movie is bad. it was laughable early and often. it makes the first one look oscar worthy. the acting is 0, the dialogue is 0, the action is useless. simple things like audio dubbing being off and continuity errors all over the place. this movie sometimes felt like it was a student film. overall i laughed enough for this to be a somewhat enjoyable experience. hilariocity score of 3.5 (about 2 viewings)

    Still keeping the fun action packed thrills as the first film but sadly not really adding anything new to the story except for a few new characters. I felt that Sean Bean did some solid acting and the action was still very well made and added some pretty thrilling sequences.

    Not as bad as I expected, but not actually a sequel despite the title. It's actually meant to be a prequel to the 2008 Jason Statham film, even though they got original Death Race 2000 actor David Carradine to reprise the Frankenstein role at the start of the 2008 film. Despite that, Luke Goss suits the action demanding role. Not a bad film for what it is, it was entertaining, action packed and had some familiar faces including Sean Bean and Danny Trejo.

    Death Race 2 I feel is like the Pre-equal of the first Death Race with Jason. This guy does a bank job for a gangster boss and gets caugh and goes to the death race prison and then basically takes on the gangsters in there to find his freedom but wait he even find love in there as the drivers navigators are women prisoners and well things come arising. I feel Part 2 & Part 3 have a better story line and the first Death Race is a movie on its own credit. Not suitable for the young kiddies I would say 15 and above. If you watch part 2 you have to watch part 3 as it gives the movie series a proper ending.
