This movie deals mostly with how the Death Race came about and how Frankenstein was created. That's interesting but it does mean that half the move has no races - prisoners battle each other in one-on-one fights which is not what I watch a Death Race movie for. I get why they went into the creation of the race but I think they could have cut it down to 20 or so minutes without missing anything. That said, once the racing starts it's great.
*Spoilers!!*
Private companies make prisoners fight to the death or submission for tv. When this becomes less popular the idea of the Death Race is put forward, approved and the prisoners race. One of these prisoners is the man who will become Frankenstein.
That's the basic plot of the movie. If it sounds like something that you want to see in more detail, like how he becomes Frankenstein etc, then buy this movie. It's good for people who actually were curious about the history of Death Race. If that's not you, skip this and go straight to Death Race Inferno which is all about the Races!

YES A GREAT MOVIE WITH PLENTY OF VIOLENCE AND ACTION .
NO JASON STATHAM THOU . HE HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH LUKE GOSS
(X BROS DRUMMER) WHO SEEMS TO BE A FARE SUPERIOR ACTOR THAN STATHAM .
YOU EVEN HAVE THE EXCELLENT DANNY TREYJO .
THE STORY IS GOOD AND THE ACTION IS GOOD AS WELL . AND THERE IS SOME NICE TITS AND ARSE IN THIS AS WELL . IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE VIOLENCE THEN YOU SHOULD LOVE THE TOTTY !

Death Race 2 replaces Jason Statham with Luke Goss and is a prequel? to the first remake. I didn't expect a lot of things in this sequel and as its DTV my hopes were low of enjoying this. I have to say, I was impressed. this ilm is really fun. its straight b grade movie making, but they do it well. t's schlocky and it knows it. They just want to have fun and bring in an audience who likes fast cars and hot women. For an 18 rated film, I was expecting way more brutality and gore, but there's a surprising shortage of the red stuff. That doesn't make it a bad movie, though. Its just pure fun. Its better than most of those Asylum movies.

What happens when you try to take the ring from Frodo? You go to Roger Corman hell and play the bad guy,although in this movie, they were all bad guys, just some bad guys with "honor." I was disappointed Malcolm McDowell didn't play the prison warden. The part seemed designed for him. Ving Rhames plays a corporate exec. although he would have been better as a prisoner. Luke Gross plays an unconvincing tough guy.

The movie is a prequel for one that I had never seen. It is designed to shore up some rough plot points by describing how the "death race" came about while ignoring the blatant disregard for the constitution. Oh wait. Private corporations run prisons so the constitution is suspended, just like in real life. What is it with Corman and Frankenstein in a Death Race? For those of you who would rate "Death Race 2000" at 5 stars, give this 4 stars. Luke Gross is no David Caradine.

PARENTAL GUIDE: Nudity, sex, and violence. Is there any real need to discuss the plot?

Death Race 2 is an absolutely stonking, adrenaline filled guilty pleasure sort of movie, that will prove irrestible to all you petrol heads out there!

The cars are the best looking since Mad Max and the action is flawless. Luke Goss steals the show as brutal but honourable anti-hero Carl Lukas and Tanit Phoenix is absolutely smouldering as the love interest. Sean Bean sheds his usual garb of lank hair and rusty armour and puts in a credible performance as the boo-hiss villain and it was great to see Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction) as head honcho Mr Weyland and everyone's favourite grizzled latino Danny Treho.

The action morphs at break-neck pace from the initial gladiatorial one-on-one combat into the grand debut of the Death Race itself. There's a bit of caustic satire and social commentary thrown in - the ratings soar as more blood flows (rather like in Rollerball) and at a whisker under 100 minutes it never overstays its welcome.

The plot feeds nicely into both Death Race (2008) and the 1975 cult classic Death Race 2000.

The Blu-ray picture quality is pin-sharp and surround sound is used to very good effect during the race sequences. The extras include a terrific on-the-set feature that shows what a blast the actors had making this movie.

If you love fast cars, stylised OTT violence and black humour, then Death Race 2 is an essential purchase.
