#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In 2012, amid economic chaos and high unemployment, Americans watch by the millions as criminals with life sentences race armored cars on Terminal Island. Two-thirds of the combatants die but the winner may earn his freedom. On the day he loses his job, steelworker Jensen Ames is arrested for his wife’s murder. Sent to Terminal Island, he’s offered an out by the steely and manipulative Warden Hennessey – race as the popular mask-wearing (but now dead) champion, Frankenstein, or rot in prison. Jensen makes the bargain. As the three-stage race approaches, he realizes that the whole thing may be a set up – can an anonymous man behind a mask get revenge and win his release?
Plot: Terminal Island, New York: 2020. Overcrowding in the US penal system has reached a breaking point. Prisons have been turned over to a monolithic Weyland Corporation, which sees jails full of thugs as an opportunity for televised sport. Adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for violence and a spectacular, enclosed arena come together to form the ‘Death Race’, the biggest, most brutal event.

Loud and brash but ultimately entertaining thanks mostly to Jason Statham and some decent racing sequences (well, when the camera wasn’t jittery or quick edits). Also some love for Joan Allen making for a fine villain and never a bad thing with Ian McShane even in a supporting role. Nothing great but pretty much well within Paul W.S. Anderson’s wheelhouse. **3.5/5**
A massive departure from the original, _Death Race_ keeps the cars and kills and forgoes virtually everything else from _2000_. Fun in a very different manner, but still fun, and that’s what counts.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
Don’t Listen to the Critics
I always hate it when all those high class critics from the newspapers and journals bash a film for not being what THEY want it to be and not looking at it for what its SUPPOSED to be.
The title is “Death Race” after all. No-one ever expected it to win any golden trophies in the first place. So what if the acting was a bit bland and the plot was a little weak. That’s not was the movie is supposed th be about.
It’s not a Martin Scorsese film where you sit back and think “Oh, that is very thought-provoking and I feel that I’ve truly learned something inspirational today.” No. This is a film where you sit back, look at it, and think “Holy ****!! Did you see that ********** explosion?!”
This is a film where you have fun in. Don’t worry if you walk away with nothing meaningful to talk about at the end. Go ahead and laugh at its stupidity. I guarantee you you’ll still have a much better time that watching something like Capote
