    Synopsis


    Death Race
    The Transporter star Jason Statham takes the wheel in director Paul W.S. Anderson's remake of the Roger Corman classic about a hyper-violent cross-country race that breaks all of the traditional rules of the road. The time is the not-so-distant future, and as America's prisons begin overflowing with violent criminals, the powers that be devise a grisly game that will free up space in the cells and entertain the masses at the same time. Jensen Ames (Statham) is a three-time speedway champion with a dark past. A survival expert and ex-con whose sordid history comes back to haunt him when he is framed for a murder he didn't commit, Ames is forced to choose between donning the metallic mask of a mythical racer known as Frankenstein or languishing away on Terminal Island -- America's most notorious penitentiary. Over the course of the next three days, this unlikely champion will get behind the wheel of a nightmare machine outfitted with machine guns, grenade launchers, and flamethrowers in a desperate attempt to outrun some of the most violent criminals ever imprisoned. Should Ames be the first to cross the checkered flag, he will win his freedom; should he come in second, however, death would be preferable to a grim future in a cramped concrete cell. Co-stars include Joan Allen, Ian McShane, Natalie Martinez, and Tyrese Gibson, who takes over the role of Machine Gun Joe, made famous by Sylvester Stallone in the original. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Death Race 2
    Luke Goss, Ving Rhames, Sean Bean, and Danny Trejo headline director Roel Reiné's thrill-ride sequel to Paul W.S. Anderson's hyper-violent remake exploring the origins of the most notorious Death Race competitor ever to take the wheel. Featuring a screenplay by Tony Giglio (Chaos), Death Race 2 follows convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas (Goss) as he vies for freedom by competing in the most deadly reality show ever conceived. The U.S. economy has completely collapsed, and as lawlessness spreads, private prisons crop up all across the country. Corruption reigns in these for-profit penitentiaries, and Terminal Island is home to some of the most violent offenders in the world. Lucas has just been handed a life sentence for killing a cop. Just when it looks like he'll be spending the rest of his days behind bars, unscrupulous television producer September Jones shows up seeking contestants for a brutal new game show where prisoners battle it out in high-performance death machines equipped with lethal weapons. The reward for surviving this psychotic demolition derby: freedom. Before long Lucas is fastening his seat belt, and preparing for the ride of his life. By the time this race is over, an apocalyptic legend will be born. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This is another of those standard annoying double-pack releases, complete with hollow recycle logo thin, breakable amaray case. There's not much to say to this extent, but when it comes to the films, they are an absolute must-see. Both are the unrated editions, and there are no digital copies included. With that being said, they are definitely entertaining, and the performances by both Statham and Luke Goss are great. At the time of writing, this double feature is $7, but at time of purchase it was $6, which I would recommend for the price.

      Be realistic, you do not watch these movies for the Oscar nominated plots or acting...These are watched for the adrenalin pumping action scenes. Oh, and sometimes there are hot babes or hunky guys in them. Both moves excel in the action department. Special effects are explosive. PQ and AQ are both great. Extra value is that you get two movies in one package.

      A good trilogy. The first movie is great. The next 2 movies kind of have to be seen together to understand everything
