I have to say that this movie was the most surprisingly good movie I have ever seen! (thats why I call it a sleeper hit) I bought this movie mainly because I loved Death Race 2000 so much. Now I want everyone to know it is not a sequel, it just happens to have Death in the title and star the wonderful David Carradine. I also liked how "Deathsport" solved the flaw of "Death race 2000" by saying that the movie takes place in a thousand years after tomorrow. I really thought with the bad rating and the more serious plot that it was going to suck balls big time. But then when I played it I was so shocked, that it actually was awesome. Notice I said "awesome" and not "good" because I even know that, yes, its a terrible movie. But it is also extremely entertaining. I have literally not seen so many explosions in a movie. The movie does have huge flaws and is done horribly, but its definitely a "its so bad, its good" type movie. Now it isn't so bad that its unwatchable (i.e. Plan 9), in fact I find it very watchable. I will say go into this movie prob with a friend who also likes sty b-movies because its hard to laugh at this movie by yourself.

Minor Spoilers

If you like movies with naked playmates, motorcycle explosions, some overkill, horses when shot disappear, awesome music by "Jerry Garcia", sci-fi cliques, anti-climatic deaths (including a too short duel), gladiator fights, cavemen, painted backgrounds, nomad groups a thousand years in the future, city-states, and a little girl in a guinea pig cage then this movie is for you!
