Just exactly when bad taste ceases to be funny and becomes plainly cruel is a personal thing. However I have tried this film on a few friends and they did not enjoy it. That said I had rented the old VHS from the art-house vid shop 3 times before purchasing a cheap DVD copy when it popped up.
Personally I thought some of this was laugh out loud funny and other parts frankly embarrassing to watch.
I highly recommend Deathrace 2000 but take no responsibility should you decide to watch it! Tim
