Two-thirds of the combatants die but the winner may earn his freedom. On the day he loses his job, steelworker Jensen Ames is arrested for his wife's murder. Sent to Terminal Island, he's offered an out by the steely and manipulative Warden Hennessey - race as the popular mask-wearing (but now dead) champion, Frankenstein, or rot in prison. Jensen makes the bargain. As the three-stage race approaches, he realizes that the whole thing may be a set up - can an anonymous man behind a mask get revenge and win his release? Written by
When Coach talks to Jensen about having previously qualified for parole he states: "Got as far as the gate. They got a name for it, something-or-other syndrome." the mental illness he is referring to is called Post Incarceration Syndrome, and is comparable to PTSD. Sufferers report symptoms included (but not limited to) anxiety, panic attacks, confusion, paranoia, flashbacks and sleep disturbances. Many suffers struggle with adapting to the outside world as society has progressed and while incarcerated they have been unable to keep up with this progression and feel isolated. See more »

hot women and fast cars, death race is a man's movie
I just saw this film last night at a premier in Portland Oregon.Im not gonna give away any of the story because there isn't much of one which is fine in this case. Explolsions and murder and hot women plus Jason statham equals good movie. I went into this film expecting it to be disaster,and i say this only because I'm anonymous... it was good. Plenty of wow moments to cringe at and not just me but the whole audience. The driving does get a little repetitive but kudos to the director Paul w.s. Anderson for mixing it up. Plus it is a revenge story which everyone loves. BOTTOM LINE if you want to be entertained and don't mind a some violence see it it is worth the price of admission.
