Critic Reviews for Deathsport
Audience Reviews for Deathsport
Some truly silly action bits aside, the real selling point here for me is the sleazier element of Claudia Jennings getting her kit off, which is both gratuitous and glorious and well worth the price of admission. Well worth a look if you have the chance and want some low-budget sci-fi fun. Rental.
Its the year 3000 and in this apocalyptic world those with dirt bikes rule the land. The guy who owns them pits his men on the bikes against criminals in the greatest of all sports, the Death Sport. David Carradine stars in this Corman stinker (did he totally misgague what the winning formula from Death Race 2000 was?. Star Wars sounds, naked chicks being electrocuted, and a theme similar to Running Man are about the best aspects of this.
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.
