Death Race

"Get ready for a killer race."

Terminal Island, New York: 2020. Overcrowding in the US penal system has reached a breaking point. Prisons have been turned over to a monolithic Weyland Corporation, which sees jails full of thugs as an opportunity for televised sport.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The front firing weapons fitted to Pachenko's car are WW-II vintage German MG-34 7.92mm machine guns and Russian PPSh-41 7.62mm submachine guns; the former have Gurttrommel 34 drum magazines each containing a 50 round belt, while the latter can take either a 71 round drum magazine, or a 36 round curved stack magazine. That makes them unsuitable for prolonged firing, as they lack sufficient ammunition and their location also makes them impossible to reload during a race. Plus, they wouldn't even make a dent on the "tombstone". Also, the flexible navigator operated machine gun on Carson's car is manually charged and fired, so the activation/kill switch mechanism for it would have to block either the charger or the trigger, but no such thing is visible.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Machine Gun Joe slams into Frankenstein's car at the end of the first race, the driver's door is completely wasted, when it cuts away to Jensen inside the car, the door is magically "fixed".
  • When Tom Cruise couldn't get the film into a place where he was happy with it, the project was placed into turnaround by Paramount. Universal immediately acquired the rights, and Cruise and his producing partner Paula Wagner came back on board, this time with Paul W.S. Anderson writing and directing.
  • 4 tons of blank ammunition was used.
