Death Race (2008)

Death Race (2008) — So this movie is astonishingly stupid, but really that’s to be expected when you watch a movie called Death Race.  The clever subversive-ness of the 70s flick Death Race 2000 (which is a much smarter stupid movie) is replaced with more gore and crazy violent car crashes.  And it works.  For me anyway.  I enjoyed this movie far more than I should have.  There’s a weird kind of 80s movie quality to it that I dug, plus it reminded me of an ultraviolent version of Mario Kart.  So like I said it’s astonishingly stupid, but if you don’t let that bug you it’s entertaining.
