"A gory, goofy, live-action Road Runner cartoon, full of brazen sight gags, copious nudity, and flattened pedestrians. . . it also manages to hold up as a satire of media and violence that isn’t condescending or tedious." - Zack Handlen, A.V. Club

It's basically a schlocky, murdery, live-action adaptation of the classic cartoon Wacky Races. Filled with Nazis, insane violence, political commentary and some seriously goofy battle-cars, Death Race 2000 is basically everything you want from a ridiculous 70s movie, plus more. Interestingly, the 2008 remake (Death Race, starring Jason Statham) is shockingly faithful and manages to preserve the ridiculous, overblown tone of the original. Five stars for both!

The kids today, with their twelve-part Hunger Games epics, could learn a thing or two about efficiency from this legendary flick. Just hearing about it from my friends gave my younger self nightmares.

Another Roger Corman classic!

It's a weird one, notable for its cast and crew. A homicidal Sylvester Stallone? Check. A demented David Carradine? Check. Recognizable character actors from the decade? Check. Worth your time as a curiosity alone.

For a parody of what may be coming in Trumpville USA this flick seems almost too horribly prescient.

Classic shlock. Entertaining. Carradine and Stallone battle it out.

maybe as an old semi classic it's jusy barely entertaining
