This was a quite entertaining film but nothing more. With Jason Statham as Jensen Ames, a construction worker who is being accused for his wife murder. Madam Hennessey, the evil director of Terminal Island prison alongside with her assistant, Ulrich are behind this plan. Jensen is a tough guy and doesn't want to stay long in this hell so he will accept the offer to participate at the 'Death Race', a game where criminals race armored cars and kill each other. The one who wins five times, is getting released. Jensen will find difficulties in there as Pachenko and his brotherhood want him dead. He will take the place of Frankenstein, an ex former but now dead champion and with the help of his technical team will find the way to freedom! Action in high levels and fast direction are the points of this production.
