Trivia

This movie features a scene in which Annie and Minerva have a conversation in the "Bechdel Bar" about the death race and Minerva's background. However, this scene ironically fails to pass the Bechdel-Wallace test since the two characters talk about men (specifically Frankenstein and Annie and Minerva's respective fathers). See more »

Goofs

While the VR glasses could be futuristic, how is anyone going to hear anything or smell anything without some sort of connection to the glasses? Only once near the end are ear pods visible. For the most part, these are nothing but swim goggles, nothing more. See more »

Quotes

Alexis Hamilton: Do you know what the Dalai Lama said about committees? Oh, that's right, he didn't talk about committees, because he wasn't a pussy!

Much better than the current 3.4 rating.
11 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw the original Death race 2000 back in 1977, My Dad was one of the first people to get HBO back then and he let me stay up and watch Blazing saddles with him, He fell asleep then Death race 2000 came on. An R rated movie, I was 11. I loved it. the other death race sequels got it all wrong, the original was a cult B movie with a very dark sense of humor. the two sequels that followed were bad action movies.

If you liked the original Death race 2000, you will love this movie. It is as if no time has passed. It captures the same feeling and has the same wacky humor and blood and guts as the original. this is destined to be another cult classic as it was Intended to be. The acting was better than I expected. it has good cast of characters. It starts off slow but about 20 minutes in I was hooked.
