Corrected entry: Thomasina refers to the navigator as her granddaughter, yet at the end, the navigator refers to Thomasina as her great-grandmother.

Correction: This is a character decision. My own great-grandmother refers to me as her 'grandson' and not her 'great-grandson'.

Corrected entry: When Machine Gun Joe (Stallone) is about to run over a guy he knocked down from a ladder, you can see a bus and some cars in the background, commuting as on a normal day, not a day when everyone is supposed to be avoiding the racers who kill people for points.

Correction: There were two people performing some service on phone poles, and only one worker got knocked down. If these people were out on a day putting their lives on the line, why wouldn't there be traffic on the roads too?

Corrected entry: The people cheer Frankenstein in his car, but how would they know who he is? Could be just a rebel in Frankenstein's car for all they know.

Correction: I don't think this is any different from watching NASCAR. Who is really in those cars racing around the track at 200 MPH? Is that really Tony Stewart or just a regular guy?

Corrected entry: When Frankenstein is with his navigator in a hotel room, he takes off his costume, including his mask. About a minute later, when he asks his navigator to dance, he still has his mask on. The "hotel room" is also obviously a gym, complete with the doors with the big steel handles!

Correction: As far as the mask goes, he puts it back on to be kinky. Also this movie takes place in the future, the hotel may look like a gym, but who knows what kind of interior decorating they do in the future, maybe big steel handles are in style.

Corrected entry: When the navigator of Frankenstein (Carradine) asks him what flavour an energy drink is, he says his taste buds were destroyed in the crash of '97. This is after the scene when Frankenstein admitted to his navigator that he was a different, new Frankenstein than the others who suffered in past crashes.

Correction: He's making a joke to avert her suspicions that the drink may have been tampered with.

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! Frankenstein the legend, Frankenstein the indestructible! Sole survivor of the titanic pile-up of '95, only two-time winner of the Transcontinental Road Race... Frankenstein! Ripped up, wiped out, battered, shattered, creamed, and reamed... a dancer on the brink of death... Frankenstein, who lost a leg in '98, an arm in '99! With half a face and half a chest, and all the guts in the world, he's back.

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.
