Mass Destruction, Ultra-Violence, straight forward plot of killing for Ratings, whats not to love? And Jason Statham running suckas down and blasting fools into chunks of blood sausage? I love it.

I went into this movie with no real expectations towards either acting or plot. I was expecting cool racing and action. I got exactly what I was expecting and thouroughly enjoyed the hell out of this movie.
Yes... it does say in the opening credits that it was based on Corman's DR2k. Corman is even listed as one of the Executive Poducers... so he definitely had a hand in this. It does lack the satire from the first... and IMO, it plays more like a sequel to the original than a rewrite or re-imagining... especially with the way 'Frankenstein' is played up.
My favorite was the racing itself. The cars in the original were very stylized in favor of the individual drivers. The cars in this were out of the Road Warrior. The Mustang Fast-back was gorgeous... Machine Gun Joe's Dodge Ram was awesome... even 14K's Porsche... the re-imagining of the cars was just awesome!
If you even had an inkling about seeing this movie... do it.

I saw it last night... It was entertaining and lots of action... Acting was alright...
But it was also really dumb... The cars they built for the movie are so far from drivable. I sorry, there is no way that a Mustang with a 6in steel plate on the rear could even drive down the street...
But I knew that it was going to be "Hollywood" fake... so I just sat back and got amusement out of it...
I give it an ok rating...

Remeber Roadblasters? Yeah, that's all I could think of while watching this. Then we had the added bonus of powerups like in Mario Kart
I've never seen the original movie but from the way people talk about it, I may like it better than this version
