Death Race 2000

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.

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...


Harold: Is it true that with your new mechanical arm you can shift gears in less than a twentieth of a second? Would you care to comment on that?
Frankenstein: No.
Harold: How do you feel about going into the race with a navigator you've never met?
Grace Pander: You'll love Annie. She's a red-hot sexpot.
Frankenstein: She'd better be a red-hot navigator.

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.

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).
