Training Day

Visible crew/equipment: When Ethan Hawke starts to chase Denzel Washington onto the roof of his wife's apartment, he climbs through the window. As Hawke is going through the window, you can clearly see a large stage light on a tripod, in the room behind him. (01:41:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When Jake is holding Alonzo at gunpoint in Sara's bedroom, the boom microphone appears for a few frames (immediately after Alonzo says, "It's not what you know. It's what you can prove"). (01:39:00)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, Denzel drives his car into 2 cars trying to get Ethan off the hood. After that scene ends you see Denzel driving the same car and the front and rear of the car look nothing like they did when he was crashing into the cars.

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.
