Critic Reviews of "Death Race 2000"Entertainment WeeklyJune 17, 2010
Behold the power of cheese!Chicago ReaderMarch 28, 2007
The story, about a road race in the not-too-distant future for which the drivers are given points for running down pedestrians, becomes an elaborate and telling fantasy about our peculiar popular entertainments. Fine work carved from minimal materials.VarietyMarch 28, 2007
Script, from an Ib Melchior story, makes its satirical points economically, and director Paul Bartel keeps the film moving quickly.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Overall the movie isn't as synchromeshed as it might be; the rivalry between champions Carradine and Stallone isn't very interesting, and some of the gags aren't sick or funny enough. But it's a great audience film.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
In the end, it reveals itself to have nothing to say beyond the superficial about government or rebellion. And in the absence of such a statement, it becomes what it seems to have mocked -- a spectacle glorifying the car is an instrument of violence.Antagony & EcstasyApril 22, 2013
A movie that has a little bit of everything, and it's easily the best version of itself that could possibly be put together.FEARnetJanuary 09, 2011
A goofy piece of over-the-top mayhem with half a brain.IGN DVDOctober 16, 2010
A terrifically entertaining movie, and a sharp, funny social commentary from start to finish.Dread CentralAugust 02, 2010
Roger Corman is the master of doing a lot with a little, and Death Race 2000 is but one shining example of the filmmaker's know-how.Seanax.comJune 27, 2010
Director Paul Bartel perfected his brand of blackhearted humor on this ragged production, overcoming budgetary restraint with inspired moments of B movie spectacle...Lessons of DarknessAugust 25, 2008
The conception and execution are top-notch low-budget trash.Film ThreatJune 07, 2008
Death Race 2000 is as Corman as his B-grade action pics come, with cars flying through the frame, blood spilling behind them, and overnight pit-stops for some sex ("navigators" in each car keep their drivers juiced up).
