"Get ready for a killer ride."
Terminal Island: The very near future.
The public's insatiable lust for extreme sports and reality competitions has grown into reality TV bloodlust with Death Race - the most extreme racing competition. With bigger ratings than the Super Bowl, Terminal Island's ruthless Warden Hennessey (Joan Allen) shows no mercy towards the prisoners who are the contestants. Win five events, and you're set free. Lose and you're road kill splashed across the Internet.
International action star Jason Statham leads the action-thriller's cast as three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames, an ex-con framed for a gruesome murder. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein, a Death Race crowd favourite who seems impossible to kill, Ames is given an easy choice by Warden Hennessey (Joan Allen): Suit up and drive or never see his little girl again.
His face hidden by a hideous mask, one convict will enter an insane three-day challenge in order to win his freedom. But to claim the prize, Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals—including nemesis Machine Gun Joe (Tyrese Gibson)—in the country's toughest prison.
