    Did anyone else go see this? A friend of mine wanted to see it, and it was free for me, so I went.

    I had pretty low expectations going into it, but I actually really enjoyed it. It was a fun story and had some pretty good visuals.

    It wasn't the best movie I've ever seen, but it wasn't trying to be either. It was good for what it was, a summer action flick.

    I've been keeping an eye out for it, it certainly can't sully the name of the original DR:3000 anyway, does that well enough on its own!

    I didn't know they'd done a remake of DR3000.

    What's the point?

    They took out all the fun goofiness of the real movie and painted everything black and gray. No thank you.

    The original Death Race was retarded, but funny as hell. This doesn't seem to even follow the same plot, but it looks like it'll be decent even if not totally faithful to the original.

    Ok i saw Death Race on Sunday and if you wanted to know it is inspiared by Death Race 2000. I personaly loved this movie and i can't wait to buy it. There isn't any boobies (sorry pervs) but there is a dude makeing out with his wife on a kitch conter. I recomend you go and see this movie if you love cars, guns, blood, and stuff being blown up :bay . Some language f bombs word the works. Also sexual humar like butt rape.

    cars, guns, and stuff blowing up...

    Sounds right up my alley. Jason Statham also kicks ass, all the time.

    Lots of stuff blowing up in amusing ways. Nonsense plot. I liked it.

    My roomates and I saw this the other night... perfect ratio of plot to explosions and violence... I haven't had this much fun in a movie since Snakes on a Plane. This is a sure buy on DVD... such a bloody good time.
