Watch Death Race 2 - Alternative Versions.
Be honest, was the 2008 Death Race film (itself a remake of the 1975 B
movie Death Race 2000) actually avant garde cinema? No it was not! It
was a loud, visceral, simple action movie; all style, little substance
in the grand Paul WS Anderson tradition. This cheap direct to video
prequel, not a sequel as the "Death Race 2" title might seem to imply,
is just more of the same. Heck even the main characters looks the same
only with different names.
Now fans of the 2008 crash and burn thrill ride of a movie are in for a
treat here. In Death Race 2, we discover the origins of the dangerous
game; how it went from a simple prison fight caught on camera to full
blown TV ratings dependent gladiatorial combat and then, to boost
ratings, the brutal Death Race. Anybody remember the cool sounding
masked Driver "Frankenstein" who appeared at the beginning of 2008's
Death Race? Well here is his origin story too. Before he became the
famous Frankenstein, Carl Lucas (Luke Goss) was a getaway car driver
for a crime boss Markus Kane (Sean bean). A heist gone wrong landed
Carl a life sentence at Terminal island penitentiary, a prison famous
for its broadcasts of "Death Match". With ratings of Death Match
plummeting, one of the organizers "September Jones" witnesses Carl's
driving skills and decides to revamp the games into "Death Race". Nine
cars, three rounds, five wins to freedom. The no holds barred car-nage
has just begun. As Carl puts his skills to the test, his former boss is
planning his death, and he has someone on the inside to do it.
Sound familiar? To say that the writers were lazy is an understatement.
They basically took the exact same character types from the 2008 film
and changed their names to be new characters. In other words, we got
all the uninspired lines, one dimensional (and slightly racist)
characterization, and minimal character development of the original
show, but none of the star power the likes of Jason Stratham and Tyrese
Gibson. Star power alone was what made the original character bearable
and now with that gone, they are not as interesting to watch. Fans
would recognize Robin shou and Frederick Koehler reprising their roles
of "14K" and "Lists".
The main attraction here has always been the cars and the carnage.
Despite having less than one third of the budget of Paul WS Anderson's
2008 film, Death Race 2 does a wonderful job of replicating all the
excitement and adrenaline of the races. Perhaps too good a job as some
scenes look 100% copied and pasted from that film complete with similar
camera angles, same chain of events and even similar lines of dialog.
The cars themselves and the sets do not look as well designed as its
predecessor but remember, this took place before the 2008 film and as
such cars get rebuilt and the place gets upgraded as the days go by.
With the target audience being those who loved the brainless 2008 Death
Race, Death Race 2 delivers no more than what they expect. If you
thought its predecessor was bad, Death Race 2 would not change that
impression. It is fun, it is violent, it is a glorified B movie just
like Roger Corman's DeathRace 2000 and Paul WS Anderson's remake, and
it is surprisingly well shot for a direct-to-video film. Definitely
worth at least a rental but do familiarize yourself with the 2008 movie
before jumping into this.
