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.

Total Film's 50 Deadliest Movie Games (50 movies items)

"The Players: Bloodthirsty drivers, like Frankenstein (David Carradine), Calamity Jane (Mary Woronov), Machine Gun (Sylvester Stallone), Nero The Hero (Martin Kove), and Matilda The Hun (Roberta Collins). The Rules: Drive to the finish line, racking up as many points – by running over pedestrians – as you possibly can. How To Win: Well, the elderly are worth the most points, so the more over-75s you can knock down, the better your chances."

The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2014 (320 movies items)

"This is a terrible movie that is also a guilty pleasure! And that is because although it's cheesy, it never takes itself seriously and is just plain stupid fun! It's like a live-action version of Wacky Races! The low budget of the movie reveals itself at every turn and the few "special effects" are just matte shots that look terrible and should have been eliminated. David Carridine plays Frankenstein, the movie's "hero," and he's way to inert to fill the role. The movie works pretty well as a sa"

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: America is in ruins, and things couldn't be worse. However, there is gladiator styled car races, in which the goal is to run over, as many people as humanely possible. Year it takes place: 2000"

" 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.

"01/07/14 Directed by: Paul Bartel 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. "

" 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!"
