Double-bill of action films based on Paul Bartel's 1975 film 'Death Race 2000'. In 'Death Race' (2008), Jason Statham stars as former racing driver Jensen Ames, who is sent to Terminal Island prison after being framed for the murder of his wife. There, he is forced by the masochistic Warden Hennessey (Joan Allen) to compete in a lethal car race where the contestants must win or die. In the follow up prequel 'Death Race 2' (2010), Luke Goss plays a convict determined to gain his freedom no matter what it takes. Set in the near future as the US economy begins to falter and crime increases, new prisons run strictly for profit begin to appear. Terminal Island is one such penitentiary where a regime of brutal oppression reigns. Beginning his life sentence after killing a policeman, Carl Lucas (Goss) soon realises his only chance for freedom lies in entering and winning the latest TV show devised by unscrupulous producer September Jones (Lauren Cohan). In the last-man-standing 'death race', Lucas must battle it out against his fellow inmates in heavily modified vehicles designed to destroy anything that gets in their way.
