Strange Days

Continuity mistake: This is the car chase scene, where Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett are in a limo being chased by two bad cops in a pickup. Early in the scene, you have the view from inside the pickup when it rams the limo from the rear passenger side, and you can clearly see bullet holes in the glass and rear of the limo (no weapons fired yet). Then a few seconds later in the scene, you can see the rear of the limo with no damage. Moments later, you see one of the cops firing an automatic weapon, and subsequently witnessing the holes being made in the limo.

Audio problem: When Lenny, Masey and Max have found Tic "cooked off" in his van, Masey and Max are having a discussion and there is a shot of Lenny in the van, trying to make Tic more comfortable. Behind him, you can see Masey and she is obviously talking, but unfortunately, it is Max we can hear in voiceover.

Continuity mistake: The second time we see Faith Justin singing, she has the microphone in her hand and is standing to the side of the stand. In the next shot, Faith is further over on the stage and the microphone from her hand is back on the stand.

Lenny Nero: Look... everyone needs to take a walk to the dark end of the street sometimes, it's what we are.

Trivia: To stage the year 2000 New Year's countdown, four city blocks were closed off near the Bonaventure Hotel in L.A. To get the estimated twelve thousand extras needed for the scene, a concert was put together. The "Millennium Event" was advertised in local newspapers and on the local radio stations, bringing people from all over to the show. Live music, including Aphex Twin and Doc Martin, kept the energy level high, while the production raffled off trips to Hawaii and other door prizes.

Question: While at the New Year party near the end, Mace tells Lenny that his clip of the Jerico One murder is the only one, and that there are no copies. Yet when Faith was explaining the situation earlier, we see Philo setting fire to a clip with the same content. Did I miss something?

Answer: The clip that Mace and Lenny have is a copy of the original that was made that Philo didn't know about. When he destroys the original by burning it, that leaves only the copy that was made and passed on to Lenny. He then has the only remaining copy, which is what Mace means.
