Death Race 2000

 (1975)

Death Race 2000 Blu-ray offers solid video and poor audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In the year 2000, hit and run has become the national sport. It's a no-holds barred cross-country race, in which the aim is to kill off not only your opponents, but as many pedestrians as possible. David Carradine takes on Sylvester Stallone in this classic adrenaline thriller that will make you look both ways twice before you cross.

For more about Death Race 2000 and the Death Race 2000 Blu-ray release, see Death Race 2000 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone, Mary Woronov, Martin Kove, Roberta Collins, John Landis (I)
Director: Paul Bartel

Death Race 2000 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Death Race 2000 rolls onto Blu-ray with a problematic but vintage-in-appearance 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. As with Rock 'N' Roll High School's transfer, this one's littered with random scratches, pops, speckles, and debris, but also like Shout's other Corman high definition release, the tattered appearance oddly suits the film well, lending to it that rough-and-tumble look of a well-worn drive-in print. High definition enthusiasts wanting a pristine image will be disappointed, but this is one title that some imperfections actually seem welcome. As to the rest of the image, detailing is shaky but often acceptable; viewers will see the streaks of paint on Frankenstein's helmet or make out the nuances of the scarring around his eye, the texture of nylon straps that hold helmets in place, and the general textures on cars, clothes, and various outdoor elements. Colors are routine, nicely rendered but with reds that often stand out as harsher than the other shades. Blacks and flesh tones are consistently average. Death Race 2000 delivers a roughly-hewn 1080p image that's obviously never going to contend with the best new release transfers, but fans should be more than happy with what Shout has managed to accomplish with this release.


Death Race 2000 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Death Race 2000 stutters onto Blu-ray with a middling Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack. This one's all about sheer volume instead of precision and clarity. Dialogue can be piercing and harsh, and sound effects are barely distinguishable one from another, with most of the louder and more powerful elements coming across as little more than a jumble of sound that only loosely resembles a car crash, engine roars, or an explosion, for instance. Some effects sound like nails on chalkboards, and listeners with calibrated systems and set volumes will be fiddling with the remote throughout the movie. No doubt a more refined lossless soundtrack would have helped to clean this one up, but considering that Death Race 2000 is a 35-year-old low-budget film, it's probably not fair to expect anything substantially better than this. Marginally better, definitely, but there's never going to be a Death Race 2000 soundtrack that bests this one by leaps and bounds.
