This action packed explosive movie will have you gripping your seat at every twist and turn. Welcome to the most evil spectator sport on Earth... Welcome to Death Race.
For fans of Jason Statham this will tick all the required boxes, or petrolheads waiting on the next Fast & Furious. It's all very predictable and corny, but for some that's perfect entertainment. For me it all seemed to be shot through a oil smeared perspective.
