Goofs

The concept is that the race is held once a year to help with overpopulation. There are only five racers, and some of the highest scores are about 250 points, with each person being at least 10 points. That is only about 125 people killed. This seems like a pretty ineffective way to control a population of millions. See more »

Much better than the current 3.4 rating.
11 January 2017 | by stratmandudeSee all my reviews

I saw the original Death race 2000 back in 1977, My Dad was one of the first people to get HBO back then and he let me stay up and watch Blazing saddles with him, He fell asleep then Death race 2000 came on. An R rated movie, I was 11. I loved it. the other death race sequels got it all wrong, the original was a cult B movie with a very dark sense of humor. the two sequels that followed were bad action movies.

If you liked the original Death race 2000, you will love this movie. It is as if no time has passed. It captures the same feeling and has the same wacky humor and blood and guts as the original. this is destined to be another cult classic as it was Intended to be. The acting was better than I expected. it has good cast of characters. It starts off slow but about 20 minutes in I was hooked.
