Brooding dystopian futuristic action tale in which, after being framed for the murder of his wife, a factory worker (Jason Statham) is offered freedom by his warden (Joan Allen) if, with the assistance of a female convict navigator (Natalie Martinez) and a skilled pit crew (Ian McShane, Fred Koehler and Jacob Vargas), he competes in the car-races-to-the-death she supervises for public entertainment. Writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson's updating of Paul Bartel's 1975 "Death Race 2000" is one long paean to brutality, as the speedway gladiators are decapitated, gored and napalmed. Pervasive graphic violence with blood, fleeting rear nudity, frequent rough and crude language, and a couple of profanities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O—morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R—restricted; under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
