    Death Race

    Anyone catch this trailer yet?

    Of all the remakes of 1970's movies I really really wanted a re-make of Death Race 2000. Death Race is no Death Race 2000.

    This looked, to me, like they took all the fun silly bits out of Death Race 2000, and stretched out the violence to fill the 120 minute time slot. Looks more like a movie version of the video game Full Auto.

    My guess, two weeks after it hits the theater I'll be able to rent it.

    Looks like decent entertainment to me.

    Death Race is not worthy of having that name. I'm a big fan of Death Race 2000, and you're right, it just didn't have the charm the original had. The original was pretty fun when you got down to it, but this remake just takes itself way too seriously!

    HP - I'll rent it for sure, battle wagons with guns strapped to em' can't be ALL bad. It also has a couple of actors I like.

    Chii - That is exactly my point. DR200 was a laugh, with some cool cars and and a few crazy action scenes. Death Race looks like... all violence with a couple of snarky comments thrown in.
