Awful, overwrought, campy...yet great fun!

"As the cars roar into Pennsylvania, the cradle of liberty, it seems apparent that our citizens are staying off the streets, which may make scoring particularly difficult, even with this year's rule changes. To recap those revisions: women are still worth 10 points more than men in all age brackets, but teenagers now rack up 40 points, and toddlers under 12 now rate a big 70 points. The big score:... read more

This movie is in the category of being so bad that it's great. It was made in 1975 and stars a young David Carradine. The setting is a dystopian future society where the American fascination for cars gets taken to a ridiculous extreme. We also see Charlton Heston and Sylvester Stallone. (I was going to say when they were young and in-experienced but did they age any better? HaHa.

Made in 1975, Paul Bartel's vision of a dystopia America (or what has become of it) in 2000 is not off the mark. In fact, this is one of the many films which showed - or shows - America's obsession with forms of entertainment that are unorthodox and unusual, usually violent. True, America still doesn't have floating cities and people who are brave enough to compete in "death races", pretty much ev... read more

In the not-so-distant future lies a new national sport - the Death Race, a nationwide road rally in which the winner is not determined by who finishes first, but by who scores the most points along the way by running over hapless pedestrians.

" Death Race 2000's premise is very similiar to anther movie that came out this same year, Rollerball. Both have to do with a sport that takes place in a dystopian future and in which the loss of the game could result in the ultimate loss, death. and both sports, Roller Ball and the Death Race, are past-times that were invented just so the fans of each particular sport could satiate their thirst for blood. However, I think that the theme worked better here in Death Race than it did in RB because"

"01/07/14 - That was totally bad ass and I don't even like car movies. David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone were perfect in this (minus that terrible fight scene) and the stunts and gore were pretty rad."

Filmsite's Greatest Chase Scenes in Film History (83 movies items)

" This futuristic, campy film featured one long, trans-continental road race chase sequence involving customized high-performance funny cars, led by a disfigured, dark and brooding, leather-jumpsuited Frankenstein (David Carradine) and rival Machine-Gun Joe Viturbo (Sylvester Stallone). The cult classic's tagline illustrated the brutal sport of killing pedestrians for points: "In The Year 2000 Hit And Run Driving Is No Longer A Felony. It's The National Sport!" Women were worth 10 points more th"

The premise is a cross-country race where you accumulate points by killing pedestrians with higher pt. levels for killing toddlers at 70 pts. each and the aged at 100 pts. if the person killed is over 75. The cars of course have appendages to make it easier to kill, never mind that they are speeding at 70 - 100 miles per hour. I'm telling you it's a riot for how extremely silly it is and how poorly acted” read more

"February 21 "Here he comes: Machine Gun Joe! Loved by thousands, hated by millions!" Since this was recommended for the Netflix Instant Project, I decided to see this before watching the remake. It was cool to see Sylvester Stallone in a Pre-Rocky movie and even though he overacts like he usually does in this one, but this kind of movie doesn't require good acting. If you don't like trashy movies then you won't like this one, but if you do chances are you will like this one."

"8.2 Syltty ja David Carradine ajelevat rumilla autoilla kisaa, jossa saa pisteitä mm. ajelemalla ihmisten yli. Sadistiset katsojat seuraavat tätä teurastuskisaa. Mikään maatamullistava elokuvateoshan tässä ei ole kyseessä, vaan ihan kivaa sekoilua oksettavan rumilla autoilla. Carradinen nahkapauku oli myös aika cool. "

"6.1. Todella pöhkössä väkivaltaviihdesatiirissa ei olla lähimaillakaan 2000-lukua, vaan kyllä se kultainen 70's kurkistaa jokaisen nurkan takaa. Tällä leffalla ei sitten ole paljon tuoretta sanottavaa väkivallasta, pikemminkin vain rasittaa katsella kuolonajoista intoutuneen toimittajan hehkutusta ja vallankumousliikkeen touhuja. Juoni on täyttä reikäjuustoa, mutta murskaantuu tässä sentään kallo jos parikin, eli jaksaa leffan jotenkin lopulta katsella. Carradinen puvussa ei ol"

Movie diary 2013 (80 movies items)

"2.1. Carradinen gimppisankariasu on aivan mahtava, paikoittainen väkivalta ja satiiriperseily naurattaa jonkun verran, mutta leffa on kyllä muuten onneton. Kaikki näyttelijät vetävät aivan käsittämättömän övereitä roolisuorituksia ja editointivaihe on varmasti paahdettu jonkinlaisissa huumeissa."

In fact, this is one of the many films which showed - or shows - America's obsession with forms of entertainment that are unorthodox and unusual, usually violent. True, America still doesn't have floating cities and people who are brave enough to compete in "death races", pretty much everything that's shown here is quite-true, and in some cases very true. Onto the film: Loud, clunky, lazy, irrational, senseless, unmemorable - These are the words that can be used to describe Death Race 2000. It had the potential of being one of the coolest movies ever but that above points, coupled up with some of the worst acting performances I've ever seen, make this film a low-below misfire. <” read more

Well THAT didn't happen... (28 movies items)

" Year: 1970-2000 What it predicted: The US would collapse by the end of the 70s and a man slaughtering mega race of epic proportions was started to keep the masses occupied. By 2000, David Carradine is the biggest star of the show, wearing a really questionable bondage-mask while racing. Goodbye peripheral vision! What happened: I think we got NASCAR on one of those years. Accuracy: Pretty much 1:1. You know, except for the part about the US being no more."
