7.5/10

Terminal Island, New York: 2020. Overcrowding in the US penal system has reached a breaking point. Prisons have been turned over to a monolithic Weyland Corporation, which sees jails full of thugs as an opportunity for televised sport. Adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for violence and a spectacular, enclosed arena come together to form the 'Death Race', the biggest, most brutal event.

High level: Kite (4/5)

The obvious appeal is the race scenes in them beastly cars, which go down like an iced lemonade on a hot summers day. Heaps good. Jason Statham's character does some pretty tricky things that remind me of a younger Undertaker, back in his hey-day. Thanks HighMDB!

High level: Kite (4/5)

I was pretty high with my friends, had some 'Purple Kush'. Kept forgetting what was going on, and getting confused with the modern day setting and the death races. 420 hombres.
