All excited for 'Death Race,' say 'Aye!'

And for those of you too embarrassed to admit your love of cheesy-predictable-awesome Jason Statham movies, bear in mind this one also features three-time Oscar nominee Joan Allen. Which means Death Race can be classified as classy-cheesy-predictable-awesome. In other words, "AYE!"

Bonus for hard-core Statham fans (like me): Click here for Chris Nashawaty’s must-read 2007 interview with the star of The Transporter, Crank, and the well-reviewed The Bank Job. Good stuff!

    If Jason Statham did more half naked spreads in magazines we would not have to watch cheesy movies.

    I’m sad they didn’t leave this as cheesy/campy as the original Death Race 2000. :(

    I will be first in line to see this. It looks AWESOME. It’ll be one of those fun movies with absolutely no social redeeming values and you know what, I don’t care. I go to the movies to forget and this movie promises to do just that. And with Jason Statham…I love him…I even saw In the Name of the King (two hours I will never get back) and was willing to overlook that fact that he was called Farmer.

    I liked Transporter. Transporter 2 – not so much. I’m not an overall fan of the action movies he does, but I’ve read many interviews with him, and he seems like a damn likeable guy. I hope his success continues.

    I am a HUGE Statham fan, whatever he’s in I’m watching! From the moment I watched him in the Transporter I was hooked. Of course it may have something to do with his cockney charm (I’m a sucker for British men)or just his ability to put himself into character that sends me reeling. Either way I’m taking myself to see Death Race and will enjoy it without hesitation!!!

    Does anyone know if Bank Job is out on DVD?

  • Gabriela

    Yes, the Bank Job is out on DVD!
    And I will definitely see this movie.
    For all you Statham fans, you should check out Revolver…

    Why do the gay male blog writers have to write they’re “hardcore fans” of UBER-hot B movie actors instead of just drooling over them unembarrasingly as their straight female counterparts do?

    All they had to say in the movie trailer was “Jason Statham” and “former NASCAR driver” and there was no way in hell I was going to miss it. No. Way. In. Hell.

    Does anyone else think this movie is a sad rip off of Running Man with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Richard Dawson?

  • FM

    Statham is great when he’s playing the burly bruiser regular guy (see anything he’s done with Guy Rithchie). Unfortunatly, I have never enjoyed him in anything where he plays the ‘Action Hero’.
    It’s unfortunate that he has gotten so much more recognition for those movies then his more performance centered stuff.

    Oh Jason Statham…how many sucktastic movies will you force me to watch just to see you?? Clearly at least one more.
    P.S. Is Joan Allen really this hard up?

    Jason Statham could do a remake of “golden girls” and I’d probably go see it. Statham won a permanent nutguard with me with those Guy Ritchie movies he did.

    I figured that Tarentino would eventually do a remake of 1975’s Death Race 2000. Stephen Kings Running Man was a just a good copy of both DR2000 and the original Rollerball
