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.

“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.

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

“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 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."

"First viewing - July 23rd By no means a great movie, but too much fun to get too hung up on its flaws. I dug the social commentary but enjoyed the silly carnage even more. It's also pretty hilarious to see David Carradine win a fight against Sylvester Stallone given that it wasn't long after this that Stallone got famous for his Rambo & Rocky characters. Worth a look, especially if you like gratuitous B movies."

Science Fiction of the 70's! (50 movies items)

"In a dystopian future, a cross country automobile race requires contestants to run down innocent pedestrians to gain points that are tallied based on each kills brutality. Start your engines! I wonder if they also give points for the most retarded looking vehicle?"

"Death Race For commuters in certain parts of the country, getting behind the wheel can feel like entering into a lawless, post-apocalyptic bloodsport. But the next time some jerk cuts you off, just remember: At least you're not a contestant in Death Race 2000, Paul Bartel's blood-soaked ode to the vicarious thrill of putting the pedal to the metal and feeding asphalt to anyone unlucky enough to get in your way. Also be glad you aren't watching Paul W.S. Anderson's generally inferior 2008 rema"

"Carmageddonin suurena vaikuttajana mitä varmimmiten toiminut epäsovinnainen ihmisten päältä kruisailu on omalla tavallaan mielenkiintoinen satiiri väkivaltaviihteestä ja sen kuluttamisesta, omalla tavallaan pelkkä tylsähkö maantieralli parilla näyttävällä gorekohtauksella, josta olisi mauttomana splatterroskana ollut mahdollista saada irti huomattavasti enemmänkin. Autojen ulkonäössä on onneksi sopivasti munaa, Syltty on roolissaan aika epeli ja hitonmoisen yliampuvat juhlapuhe"
