When steelworker Jensen Ames (Jason Statham) returns home one evening he's greeted by his family -- and then by an intruder.  The unknown man kills his wife and children but merely wounds Ames; subsequently, Jensen is wrongfully convicted of their murder.

Now incarcerated in the loathed Terminal prison, Ames is invited by its warden to participate in its televised Death Race, where drivers battle in fortified cars with onboard weaponry.  Jensen will pretend to be the institution's most popular driver, Frankenstein, who unbeknownst to the public, is now deceased.

Death Race was a commercial success, garnering $75 million internationally.
