Wanna see all of DEATH RACE? Just watch the trailer

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The trailer looks great. It's the closet we're going to get to a live-action version of TWISTED METAL. But this trailer suffers from a classic form of "movioso trailerbus." It's when the trailer for the film, in its effort to get audiences interested, show us too much footage from the film and end up giving away too much of the plot. "He's wrongfully accused. He was set up. There's the guy that set him up. He's gonna kill the guy that set him up." And even if they don't show the protagonist killing the bad guys, we get the idea that he not only kills the guy that set him up, but the whole operation behind the alleged set-up. Whatever, it still looks like a "Non-stop adrenaline shot to the brain."
"So much action, you'll feel like your eyes are being kicked in their individual nutsacks."
"This year's 300, but in the future and not the past, and with cars, and guns not swords, and Tyrese."
