DEATH RACE 2050 (2017)

 DEATH RACE 2000 is one of the best Roger Corman-produced films of the 70s. This thing is supposed to be either a sequel(though they never even reference the original film) or a "soft-reboot", whatever the hell that means!, I would just call it a remake. Sadly, since it's made in 2017, it's a movie riddled with c.g.i. everything, c.g.i. blood, c.g.i. explosions, c.g.i. people getting run over or run down, c.g.i. as far as the eye can see. I think the only things that are real in this are the actors and the cars(which somehow manage to look worse than the ones in the movie from 40 years earlier). On the plus side at least Malcolm McDowell got a paycheck for some crazy overacting and the guy that plays the character of Jed Perfectus(Burt Grinstead) is pretty amusing. The only reason I watched this is because it was part of a recent drunken movie night gathering of some mates who seemed to enjoy it more than me. I suppose it you're raised on video games give it a look but if you enjoy actual movies stick with the original.
 There is an unrelated series of DEATH RACE movies starring Jason Statham that I have not seen that look like they have a bit of a bigger budget than this one but I'm in no particular rush to see any of those.

The Germans already used this title for a DVD release of DEATHSPORT:
