Trivia

This movie features a scene in which Annie and Minerva have a conversation in the "Bechdel Bar" about the death race and Minerva's background. However, this scene ironically fails to pass the Bechdel-Wallace test since the two characters talk about men (specifically Frankenstein and Annie and Minerva's respective fathers). See more »

Goofs

While the VR glasses could be futuristic, how is anyone going to hear anything or smell anything without some sort of connection to the glasses? Only once near the end are ear pods visible. For the most part, these are nothing but swim goggles, nothing more. See more »

Snarky, True, and Well Thought Out
2 February 2017 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

Death Race 2050 addresses some of the less than savory trends that are now both operative and readily apparent in our semi-functional somewhat- dysfunctional society. Technology has caused self-absorbed people to live vicariously through others and in the process have become lost in their own "virtual reality." This movie points out the fact that corporate propaganda, ignorance, feminism, identity politics,, religion asexuality, selective fact choosing,and big data feedback have caused our society to degrade and to lose a understandable- controllable overview.

Almost every line of dialogue, scene, visual (map), and character (zealot, hedonist, AI, voyeur, executive) in this movie have been crafted to explain and bring to light the current trend. Truth can be unpalatable even when presented in humorous and snarky manner. Unfortunately, the people that do not understand this movie are the people in need of it the most.
