      Fast, furious and deadly these are the best words that describe the movie “Death Race” with Jason Statham in a very different role when compared to “Transporter” movies. This film is a remake of the 1975 movie “Death Race 2000″ which had the actors, David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone in lead role.

      The story of this movie is about Jensen Ames (Statham) who


      ends up in prison after being accused unfairly of killing his wife. He has to participate in a death race, if he wants to see his daughter once again.

      There was a very high expectation for this movie and, it seems, that “Death Race” disappointed a lot of critics. The positive aspect of “Death Race” is that it involves a lot of stunt work and action. A total of 85 mechanics and 35 cars were involved in this movie project, in order to make your heart beat go fast and fast while watching it.

      What I didn’t like about this movie is the fact that is too fast and totally concentrated on the race and there is no room for exploration of the character’s personality and feelings. I feel that ...

      on this aspect “Death Race” was truly a disappointment. I also must add that the initial scenes of the movie can confuse the viewer when seeing how the movie ends.

      In an interview, Statham said that he was very excited to be involved in this project. He used to watch a lot of Sylvester Stallone’s movies and he was very happy to act in a

      remake of one of his movies.

      “Death Race” had to be produced originally by Paramount Pictures, however a dispute between this company and the Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner’s company halted the project. Later one, the movie rights were bought by Universal Studios.

      “Death Race” is definitely not one of the best Jason Statham movies; however I still recommend it to those who enjoy watching a non-stop action on screen.
