REVIEW: Roger Corman's Death Race 2050
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

REVIEW: Roger Corman's Death Race 2050“Legendary filmmaking icon, Roger Corman, is back with his most outrageous film yet in this sensational, action-packed and darkly humorous reboot of the original Death Race 2000! It’s the year 2050 and America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell). The masses have been brainwashed with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, in which a motley crew of violent drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over and driving each other off the road. The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Manu Bennett), who’s half-man half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy.” That is the official description for Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050, now available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital HD from Universal Pictures, which has provided NewTechReview with a NFR copy for review.

When it comes to Roger Corman’s Death Race films, you’re either a fan or you’re not. Those who are fans love the campy, outrageous, over-the-top, bloody, violent, and low-budget atmosphere. Those who aren’t, hate it because of all those things and they usually label it as a stupid, made-for-TV, “B” movie, but that’s one of the main reasons fans love it...
