Magnum Force

Continuity mistake: After one of the cars escapes from Palancio's hideout, we get a view from the driver's seat and Harry fires a bullet into the windscreen and the car is heading directly for an office. In the next scene, the car is much further away from the office than it was in the previous shot.

Continuity mistake: When Callahan is in the car with Lieutenant Briggs after they pick up the bomb they drive by the 76 service station three times in about 30 seconds.

Trivia: After Lou Guzman is killed by a police officer, we cut to a scene where Charlie McCoy is confronted by the officer who shoots him dead in the process. In this scene McCoy was played by another actor as Mitchell Ryan was too ill to film his death scene.

Question: I'm not sure if he already suspected them at the time, but why exactly did Harry want to take Davis and Sweet to arrest the gangster?

JohnShel91

Answer: Because Davis and Sweet demonstrated keen interest, skill and knowledge of firearms (particularly of Harry's .44 Magnum) when they first met. They were flattering Harry, probably in anticipation of inviting him to join their death squad. Harry was impressed and asked for them specifically, even though they were rookies, but he didn't suspect them of being the vigilante killers at that point.
