'Death Race' Cars Have Flamethrowers and Guns and Whatnot
From iwatchstuff, Paul W.S. Anderson has made a name for himself directing impossibly bad movies like Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, and Alien vs. Predator. J.F. Lawton has made his mark by writing such awfulness as Dead or Alive, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, and 88 episodes of Pamela Anderson's V.I.P. What happens when these two initialed superpowers join forces? We get Death Race, an ill-conceived remake of the 1975 Sylvester Stallone cult classic Death Race 2000! Our first peek at this can't-miss hit came in the form of Jason Statham's head photoshopped into a car; now we get a picture of some cars with flamethrowers. By South African standards, this is totally lame. By any standards, actually.
