    So lately I've seen this preview a few times for a movie called Death Race.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0452608/

    Hrmm.. so what do you think
    A: A rip off of The Condemned
    B: A rip off of the game Twisted Metal

    I can usually tell how good a movie will be in my own opinion of course, by the previews of the movie and I say this movie will score a 3/10, only because of the action scenes. It just doesn't look like something that's going to be very entertaining, because it's not original.

    I kinda think it is somewhat similar to the 1975 cult classic and original starring sly stallone death race 2000, but it is slightly different of a plot. The plot kind of reminds me of the running man. I do agree that it doesn't look very original.

    Spooky - I watched Death Race 2000 with Sly just yesterday for the first time.

    So bad it's good.

    What do you mean by "So bad it's good"?

    Saw the previews.

    Ok I want to see the movie and I really think it's a fusion between "The Condemned" and "Twisted Metal".

    I guess alot of people fighting for their lives is something worth seeing.

    I'm still waiting for "Mirrors" to be honest.

    Funny, when I first saw the preview, I though it was Twisted Metal "The Movie" since producers are jumping on the video game/comic book trends.

    This remake looks much better then the original one, should be a good movie.

    This isnt a rip off another movie/game... If i remember right, the racers are people who were serving time in jail, and the winner gets to go free, and everyone else dies.

    Obviously we are not talking about the same movie. I mean 1975's Death Race 2000. So bad it's good. Women are always worth 10 points more then men.

    Yeah, that's just like the Condemned
    10 Prisoners on an island will fight and only 1 will live.
