What the Critics say

Roger Ebert An assault on all the senses, including common. Walking out, I had the impression I had just seen the video game and was still waiting for the movie.
James Berardinelli This is The Fast and the Furious or Speed Racer on steroids, although it is more about violence and gore than cars.
C. Fuchs Had Anderson and company pressed the tongue-in-cheek pedal firmly to the satirical metal, this might have been a goofy and enjoyable, if ultra-violent offering. As it stands, and despite all of the action, fists, gunfire, explosions and more, Death Race ends up just driving in circles, constantly banging into the uninspired barriers of mediocrity before crashing in a heap of bad filmmaking.
Tomatometer Mindless, violent, and lightning-paced, Death Race is little more than an empty action romp.
