Corrected entry: Not long after Mr. White takes the little black book from Joe in the opening diner scene, Mr. White starts mimicking Joe by reading names from the book when a customer in the background walks up to pay his check. It look suspiciously like Steven Seagal. He has the cockiness, swagger and famous pony tail Steven Seagal sported when this film was made.David Addison
Corrected entry: Eddie Bunker, who played Mr. Blue, is a career criminal and sometime actor. His autobiography, "Dog Eat Dog", on which Reservoir Dogs is partly based, is one of Quentin Tarantino's favorites, and the namesake for his production company, Dog Eat Dog Productions. This is why QT cast him in the movie, despite his having no dialogue and not contributing to the plot in any way other than being the first to die.
Corrected entry: After the group leaves the diner in the opening scene, it fades to black and you hear the "K-Billy" promo. The next scene is the gang walking down an alleyway. As they pass the blue pick-up, you can see Blonde/Madsen is smoking a cigarette. Yet, not 10 seconds later, the shot introducing him as Madsen, he is putting an unlit smoke in his mouth.
Corrected entry: When Tim Roth is rehearsing his cover story, he relates that the events occurred in 1986, and that he was watching The Lost Boys on video. But The Lost Boys was not released in the cinema until 1987, so he could not possibly have seen it on video a year earlier. Irrelevant that the story's made up anyway - if you're rehearsing a cover story you'd make sure the facts are all accurate.
Corrected entry: When Mr White has his guns drawn in the alley and is about to shoot the cops in the car, there are several men standing around in the background, calmly observing as if nothing unusual was happening.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, each time someone in the crew fires their weapon, there's a different gunshot sound even though it appears that everyone is using the exact same type of chrome pistols.
Corrected entry: Mr. Pink runs from the cops in one of the movie's first few scenes. He runs out into an intersection and gets hit by a car. He gets up, smashes the window and pulls the woman out, while firing at the cops a few yards away. Watch Mr. Pink's bag, which he's dumped on the ground beside the car. It disappears and reappears a couple of times.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when Joe, Nice Eddie and Mr. White have their guns drawn, Joe is pointing at Mr. Orange; Mr. White is pointing at Joe; and nice Eddie is pointing at Mr. White. They all shoot and they all go down, but no one is pointing a gun at Nice Eddie but he still goes down. Director Quentin Tarantino in a Bravo Channel interview was aware of the goof, but left it in.
Corrected entry: During the opening scene, Mr. Blue's cigar goes from long to short and lit to unlit.
Corrected entry: When Steve Buscemi is running away from the cops, he gets hit by a car, gets up, pulls the woman out from the car, opens the door, and leaves the diamonds on the floor to shoot the cops, he runs out of bullets, gets in the car and drives away. He never picks the diamonds up and puts them in the car.
Corrected entry: Five minutes before the end when White, Eddie and Joe draw their guns on each other, Joe and Eddie aim at White, White aims at Joe. All three guns go off at the same time. Why does Eddie die? Wasn't White - he shot Joe. Wasn't Joe - he shot White and he is Eddie's father. Wasn't Pink, he was hiding. Wasn't Orange - he was almost dead and used all his ammo shooting Blonde. Wasn't Blonde - he died ages ago.
Corrected entry: On the way to the meeting to find out the job, Roth, Keitel, Buscemi and Penn are discussing a female cop on a TV show. Penn finishes the conversation with, "I'd have to agree with Pink on that one." The very next scene when they know the details of the job is when they are given their colour code names.
