And for those of you too embarrassed to admit your love of cheesy-predictable-awesome Jason Statham movies, bear in mind this one also features three-time Oscar nominee Joan Allen. Which means Death Race can be classified as classy-cheesy-predictable-awesome. In other words, “AYE!”

Bonus for hard-core Statham fans (like me): Click here for Chris Nashawaty’s must-read 2007 interview with the star of The Transporter, Crank, and the well-reviewed The Bank Job. Good stuff!
