Death Race 2000

Overview

Finally, a version of Death Race 2000 that's worth adding into any DVD collection. Long available in separate cheap versions that offered little of interest to the film's cult fan base, this new edition sports an anamorphic 1.78:1 widescreen picture and a bevy of extras that provide fine detail into the low-budget 1975 production that continues to entertain and delight fans to this day. Bonus materials include a ten-minute making-of as well as a full-length audio commentary with producer Roger Corman and actress ...

Bonus materials include a ten-minute making-of as well as a full-length audio commentary with producer Roger Corman and actress Mary Woronov that are filled with fun facts and insight into the stripped-down production. The original theatrical trailer is also included in this release from Buena Vista Home Entertainment, whose Disney ties make for a curious match to the brutally satirical picture, but who can complain after the time put into this beefed-up edition? Far superior in transfer quality from previous releases, this is the disc to get for anyone who craves a little Frankenstein and Machine Gun Joe Viterbo action every once in a while.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Death Race 2000 is the type of bad movie that can be very good, or, at least, a whole lot of fun -- the formula for a cult classic. It offers a surprisingly effective mix of violence, sex, and humor, all the more impressive given its modest budget. B-movie veteran David Carradine is appropriately gruff as the weary Frankenstein, and a pre-Rocky Sylvester Stallone is cast with comic perfection as -- what else? -- an Italian thug. Rounding out the extensive group of bizarre competitors is cult favorite Mary Woronov, as the cowgirl Calamity Jane. The gore gets a little excessive, perhaps not surprising given that the film was produced by Roger Corman, legendary for high-quality, low-budget exploitation films. The movie is not entirely without redeeming moral value, however. Like 1987's The Running Man, it does a good job of satirizing the blood lust of professional sports and the TV shows that enable and encourage it. Maybe this is a film that one shouldn't think too much about. But if you can handle spurious accusations against the "treacherous French," and you don't mind assigning point values to pedestrians, Death Race 2000 is a heck of a trip.

    Desensitized? What is that?

    Ever hear someone say while driving their car, that the old lady crossing the street up ahead is atleast 500 points and then someone begs to differ saying she is only worth 200. Well behold, its origin. The movie was made in the 70's, so the 70's style can be felt. It is an overall amusing flick. You should at the very least be able to say you have seen this movie.
