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.

Jason Statham stars as an ex-racer who's framed for the murder of his wife. Which is convenient for a prison race to the death show that's looking for a new racer.
The movie feels like a Steven Segal movie meets Mad Max meets Fast & the Furious meets a prison movie. It also can feel as if you're watching a video game play out. But all that together make it the perfect movie for guys.
