Filmed in South Africa and India.

I can't say I liked it much... not a bit of it... except maybe for the chicks... and the landscapes and scenes... maybe some of the CGI effects... no. Most dreadful, everything.

South African junkyard ... nothing spectacular about it I guess:

Junkyards and junkyard-pics are ALWAYS more interesting than many other movie-scenes :o IMHO even more than car chases :p

What I mean, is that there's no interesting stuff from the pre-1977 era there. As you said somewhere, the only things you'll find on junkyards nowadays are 10-20-year-old Japanese and Korean cars ... nothing of interest at all, or something like that :)

Naah, not really. On German junkyards Japanese cars are hard to find, except small two-doored ones. They all are going to the export. For Korean ones goes the same.
The sights above from the ZA-junkyard are totally different than in Germany. Also Mercedes Benzes are rare here, compared with the Benz-percentage on the roads - and SUV's, Jeep, Vans -especially Japanese and Korean-, also VW Buses are nearly not existing! All of them, even wrecks, were shipped to Africa.
So on German junkyards you'll find disproportional many smaller two-door-cars, same with Fiat, Renault and Ford. These brands aren't popular for the export-dealers.

Sure, one fact is totally clear: here aren't nearly no older cars at the wreckers. It became so uninteresting, that I've stopped my junkyard-control-checks over 10 years ago. 1998 was the cut-year, since the new EU-wide law for junkyards came. There all the old, nice, interesting junkyards had to close, if they haven't canged to a modern recycling-company.


The African interest for old Japanese Mini-Buses like Hiace, Urvan etc. became so strong in the last time, that you can see trailor-trucks from Poland and Lithuania, bringing them from there to the ports of Rotterdam, Bremerhaven or Antwerpen for shipping to Africa. The business seems to be so interesting, that it makes sense to transport junky Hiaces from the 80ies acres whole Europe for that... :think:
