Prime Video movie of the day: Death Race sees Jason Statham do dystopia in an action-packed smash-em-up

Death Race has been described as “mindless” and “violent”, and that’s meant as a criticism. But if you’re a fan of high-octane action movies, mindless violence might be just the thing you’re looking to stream on Prime Video. And few actors do mindless violence as well as Jason Statham, who gets the lead role here.

Statham plays three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames who finds himself locked up in the country’s toughest prison for – wait for it – a crime he didn’t commit. Facing life in a jail so grim it could be an English holiday destination, Ames’ future looks bleak until the warden gives him a choice: rot in jail forever, or race in the ‘Death Race’ and win his freedom. And let’s face it, with a name like Death Race we’re not talking Mario Kart here. 

Death Race is big, bad and oddly brilliant
