JASON Statham plays former NASCAR champion Jensen Ames in action film Death Race (15) being shown at the Hollywood Cinema in Lowestoft this week.

Its 2012 and the US economy has collapsed with Jensen having previously spent several years in prison and afterwards working in a steel mill. But things go from bad to worse as he loses his job, discovers his wife Suzy has been murdered and he is framed for it.

He is subsequently sent to a for-profit prison called Terminal Island and is ordered to participate in a pay-per-view, kill or a be-killed race where inmates build their own cars with the full range of armour and a whole load of guns. It's five race wins to freedom.

However Warden Hennessey (Joan Allen) persuades Jensen Ames to take the place of the late Frankenstein, who has won four races. So Jensen wears his old mask and sets out to win the race, get home to his baby daughter and gain revenge.
