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 the 3rd round, the announcer describes the contest as "mano y mano". That means "hand and hand". It's an all-too-common mistake, thinking that the real expression (mano a mano) means "man against man"; it doesn't. It means "hand to hand" combat.
After the credits, the line "Okay cocksucker. Fuck with me, and we'll see who shits on the sidewalk" is heard again.
