Death Race 2000

Continuity mistake: In the early part of the race, Machine Gun Joe's car is spun out by Matilda the Hun. As he spins, pieces of his car fly off, and when the car stops you can see two of the six sets of Mustang tail lights has fallen off, but throughout the rest of the movie, the car has the six.

Continuity mistake: As Frankenstein tells his navigator to go check the engine while they're driving, she is only visible from one camera angle, even though she ought to be visible from Frankenstein's point of view as well.

Continuity mistake: At the end, Thomasina shoots the navigator, but she seems OK just a few seconds later...

Revealing mistake: As Machine Gun Joe runs slowly runs over a fisherman in a small brook, he stops and "peels out" on his head. You can see a film crewman in the driver's seat doing the actual carnage.

Junior: Frankenstein scores! Frankenstein scores at last! But what kind of a score, boys and girls? Just 80 points out a possible big 700. What do you think, Gracie?
Grace Pander: Well, those doctors - dear friends of mine - have been pretty smug all these years setting up the old folks. Frankenstein must have decided it was their turn.
Harold: Which only goes to show that even the fearsome Frankenstein has a one-hundred-percent, red-blooded American sense of humor, heh heh.

More quotes from Death Race 2000

Question: I have two questions. Firstly, was getting to shake the presidents hand all the winners got, or was there anything else? And secondly, were the drivers allowed to kill the other competitors as well? Just seems odd to me that the officials who kept track of every killing in the race covered up the fact that Frankenstein had killed Joe Viterbo at the end (blaming the resistance instead).

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Like the Olympic gold medal winners, the winner gets t.v. exposure, acting roles, product endorsements, VIP treatment into exclusive parties and bragging rights. By blaming the Resistance, that paints them as the villains and keeps the race going.
