Reasonable
24 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Death Race 2 is a prequel to the 2008 film which starred Jason Statham. It explores the origins of Death Race and of the driver Frankenstein.

I think it was a good idea that they decided to do a prequel instead of a direct sequel. I have seen a few direct to video sequels and they are in fact not that good. Having said that though, it does puzzle me why the movie was called Death Race 2 and not "Death Race: The Beginning" or something along these lines.

Bearing in mind that this movie explores the origins, the storyline was OK to say the least and the action scenes were satisfactory.

I loved the 2008 movie. I don't think this prequel was as exciting but it was decent enough.
