Ending / spoiler

(3 votes)

Denzel Washington steals money in order to pay off the Russian mafia so they won't kill him. Denzel leaves Ethan Hawke to die but the Mexican gangsters spare him because the girl Hawke saved near the beginning of the film is one of their cousins. Hawke stops Denzel from getting the money and takes the money away as evidence. Denzel is gunned down by the Russian mafia while he's driving down the highway.

Continuity mistake: When Hawke and Washinton stop their car on the bridge, Hawke leaves the engine running. When he gets back in the car you can hear him start the engine before they drive away.

Question: Why didn't the gangbangers kill Alonzo at the end? Did he just get away with no trouble? I thought they were going to kill him, because he was hated in the neighbourhood.

Answer: They grew sick and tired of Alonzo's arrogance and probably decided he wasn't worth the effort. Alonzo was however killed by the Russian Mafia because Jake was told that Alonzo killed one of their couriers and had to pay them one million dollars by midnight or he would be killed himself.
