Ex-con Jensen Ames is forced by the warden of a notorious prison to compete in our post-industrial world's most popular sport: a car race in which inmates must brutalize and kill one another on the road to victory.
Shot in 50 days.
In many spots where cars are flipping upside down and in the air, you can see from the undercarriage the drivetrain (engine, transmission, driveshafts) have already been pulled from the car.
After the credits, the line "Okay cocksucker. Fuck with me, and we'll see who shits on the sidewalk" is heard again.
