This is a remake of the Death RAce 2000 from back in the day, different take and it looks not bad. ITs directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, i think the only good film hes made so far is (event horizon and mortal kombat).
P.W.S.Anderson directs lot of videogame flms, but unlike Dr.BOll he doesnt really butcher them as bad, but ppl still hate him. I dont mind the guy, i think hes a competent director, just has the wrong properties to work with. His Death Race was i guess shot last year in MONtreal, and it desnt look half bad .
