Critic Reviews for Roger Corman's Death Race 2050

All Critics (8)

Yes, it's all incredibly stupid and shoddily-made, but also pretty loony and funny.

The most striking satirical target is the take on America itself, now a post-apocalyptic wasteland - where it may feel a little close to the bone right now.

Death Race 2050 will not be for everyone - or many - but they just don't make exploitation cinema like this anymore.

Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 is loud, shrill, spastic, sadistic, stylish, slipshod, stupid and smart in equal measures.

If you're a fan of the original 1975 movie, you will appreciate the gung-ho spirit with which Death Race 2050 is presented.

Don't expect it to eclipse the original - assuming the original is your cup of tea to begin with, of course - but there's still a surprising amount of gas left in this particular tank.

Audience Reviews for Roger Corman's Death Race 2050

Complete garbage, Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 is a trashy low-budget exploitation film. It's basically a badly done remake of Death Race 2000, but lacking the clever satire and artistic vision. The acting (if it can be called such) is terrible, and the sets and costumes look incredible cheap and gaudy. And the social commentary is as subtle as a sledge hammer to the face. Roger Corman's Death Race 2050, which isn't directed by Roger Corman, is a hackneyed piece of sh** that's not even fit for the SyFy channel.

In true Corman fashion, it's bloody awful. But this is exactly how I like my trash.

I suppose you could call this the real remake to Death Race 2000 as it's the same plot but obviously set in 2050 as the year 2000 has been and gone, Anyway this remake is complete garbage, The acting is terrible the script was stupid, The effects were poor and the death race itself was boring, A few gory kills every now and then but still don't waste an hour and a half of your life on this, You have been warned.
