Storyline

Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas, aka Frankenstein, is a superstar driver in the brutal prison yard demolition derby known as Death Race. Only one victory away from winning freedom for himself and his pit crew, Lucas is plunged into an all-new competition more vicious than anything he has experienced before. Pitted against his most ruthless adversaries ever, Lucas fights to keep himself and his team alive in a race in South Africa's infernal Kalahari Desert. With powerful forces at work behind the scenes to ensure his defeat, will Lucas' determination to win at all costs mean the end of the road for him? Written by Rodzer

Trivia

Goofs

At the end of Death Race 2, Goldberg says: 'I'm sorry Luke didn't live to see this' then Lists says: 'I'm not so sure he didn't'. In the car Katrina also realizes that Frankenstein is actually Carl Lucas. Because he gave the same reply that she gave him on the question: Do you have a name. ( Off course I do )

So if at least Katrina realizes that Frankenstein is actually Carl Lucas, then why is she so shocked to see him alive in this movie? And why wouldn't she tell Goldberg and Lists? See more »

Not impressed
23 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Actually quite enjoyable, if you can ignore the story line. The old characters are back! I love the incorporation of death fight of female convicts, driving through town and even female driver like in the original film; I enjoyed the actions and gore a lot, it's just silly campy fun that doesn't lack good laughs. It's a pretty good sequel and also quite well filmed for a direct-to-DVD sequel, I strongly recommend all the fans of the series to check it out.
