Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 11/01/2000
"...Paul Bartel mocks the media's appetite for carnage and the public's bloodlust while working miracles on a slim budget..."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2000
"...Very lively....ROLLERBALL was never this much fun..."
Uncut - 08/01/2001
"An all-time gonzo classic."
Entertainment Weekly - 06/24/2010
"[A] campy sci-fi cheapie about a cross-country demolition derby where drivers score points by turning pedestrians into roadkill." -- Grade: B-
A.V. Club - 07/07/2010
"What really makes RACE such a classic...is that Bartel manages to mix ruthless satire, absurdism, and sincerity without ever softening or compromising any of them."

Description by OLDIES.com:

This fast-paced film is a hilarious satire about a futuristic society where a no-holds-barred auto race is nationally televised, and points are scored by running down pedestrians! Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine are competitors, with Stallone providing a lot of howls playing a gangster type with a machine gun in his car. This non-stop, comic book action movie is brutally funny, and remains a cult favorite.

Product Description:

More delightfully sick humor from Bartel (EATING RAOUL). In a boorish future, the government sponsors a popular, but bloody, cross-country race in which points are scored by mowing down pedestrians--with bonus points for the elderly! Five teams, each comprised of a male and female, compete using cars equipped with deadly weapons. Frankenstein, the mysterious returning champion, has become America's hero, but this time he has a passenger from the underground resistance. A legendary cult film.
