At the end of Death Race 2, Goldberg says: 'I'm sorry Luke didn't live to see this' then Lists says: 'I'm not so sure he didn't'.
In the car Katrina also realizes that Frankenstein is actually Carl Lucas. Because he gave the same reply that she gave him on the question: Do you have a name. ( Off course I do )
So if at least Katrina realizes that Frankenstein is actually Carl Lucas, then why is she so shocked to see him alive in this movie? And why wouldn't she tell Goldberg and Lists? See more »

...who was really gerook at the time, I give the movie an 8.
I got what I was expecting (and more). A motor race, with guns. Giggled at the South African references. Tsotsi's shooting at random vehicles, hot local chicks and even a violent protest. Some randomly thrown in nude scenes (raised my rating from a 7), and not a bad soundtrack.
For the full experience, I recommend smoking some swaz or cheese.
Beware the 'warlords of kalahari' and don't stop when you hit brakkiespan.
Looking forward to more and more South African related and South African made movies!
