Death Race 2000

Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine run over people for points in this tin pot action comedy which is neither as hilarious as your mate who was the first one at school to get a video recorder maintained, nor as satirically valid as your student flatmate who never let you near his video recorder argued. Paul Bartel did better in (the original) Cannonball, for our money.

    The actor who played the commentator on the race worryingly looked like Simon Bates and was just as irritating, until he gets knocked out at the end. However, a classic with female Nazis, a matador who takes on cars, and a very un PC scene where a group of geriatrics are run over.
