Storyline

With the U.S. on its knees, suffering from complete societal collapse and rampant anarchy, the nefarious Weyland Corporation has created a vast and impenetrable prison-city called "The Sprawl", where more than 400,000 inmates are left to rot. Under those circumstances, the secluded community's undisputed ruler is the unknown iconic driver known only as "Frankenstein", who is still the king of the deadly Death Races, now broadcast over the Dark Web. Then, a new powerful contestant arrives--the mysterious, Connor Gibson--who is hell-bent on beating Frankenstein himself at his own game; however, this is easier said than done. Does Connor have what it takes to humiliate the master of the races before millions of spectators? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

Gibson could NEVER pull off impersonating Frankenstein. Aside from the fact that Frank is physically taller and more massive, Gibson only traded jackets and put on Frank's mask. He was still wearing his own (different style) pants and boots when he got out of the car at the end of the race. See more »

Connor: Ex-porn star
Lists: Ex-actly

At least better than the previous movie...
25 December 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

While "Death Race: Beyond Anarchy" is no masterpiece in cinematic history, it is actually one of the more enjoyable and entertaining of the "Death Race" movies. But keep in mind that that is not in itself any particular great feat accomplished.

The storyline in this 4th movie in the franchise is basically the same as every other movie. There is a Death Race to be participated in - and won by the protagonist, of course - just like every other movie in the franchise. So on that account, there is very little variation.

There is variation in the cast, the vehicles, the track and the spectators though. I will say that some of the vehicles in the movie were actually quite cool, and definitely had that "Carmageddon" feel to it, which was the reason why I started watching these movies in the first place, so it is enjoyable that they continued on with this streak.

As for the characters in the movie. Well, let's just say that they tried, with some of the characters at least. They tried to give at least the main character a background story, albeit a very simplistic and essentially a non-important one. While all other drivers, like in the other movies, were just drivers with different vehicles, different names and different appearances.

There is a fair amount of racing in the movie, and they managed to pull it off quite nicely. Because it does feel like it is high-speed and full of adrenaline, which added tremendously to the overall enjoyment of the movie.

However, it is the simplicity of the storyline and the characters that keep the movie in the gutter of mediocrity. My rating of "Death Race: Beyond Anarchy" is a flat and mediocre 5 out of 10 stars.
