Death Race is a new form of extreme sports, the risks are huge but the winner gains his freedom.
Teams of convicts go head to head in this battle to the death. The basic idea is there's no rules when you're on the track anything is allowed. Jason Statham plays Jensen Ames, an ex nascar driver who's been incarcerated and charged with his wife's murder. The prison's warden gives Jensen an ultimatum he can't refuse, either drive for her prison or never see his little girl again.
5 races stand between freedom and a life of imprisonment for him and his team.
Starring Jason Statham, Ian McShane, Tyrese Gibson, Joan Allen and Natalie Martinez.
