I LOVED Death Race, the first movie. I loved it so much that I bought the DVD. It has awesome cars, lots of action, big guns, Jason Statham in the shower. What more do you need?
The second one is really horrible. Hated it.
Plot –Convicts are made to fight and race to the death on a reality show. Death Race is created.
Here is a list of reasons Death Race 2 sucks.
1. No Jason Statham. Death Race 2 is actually a prequel, which means that Statham’s character hasn’t yet made an appearance.
2. The writing was really and truly horrible. I can put up with a lot in the way of cheesy lines. Heck, the first installment was pretty cheesy. The dialog in Death Race 2 is crap. The characters are more like caricatures. They say “fuck” in every other sentence, apologies for the french. That word really loses any effect it may have had after the fiftieth use.
3. Not only is the dialog bad, there’s far too much of it. More action and less talking would have done a whole lot for this movie.
Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo were in the movie. That was kind of weird, given that they’re talented actors.
Please do yourself a favor and don’t waste money or time watching this movie. D- -
