Blue Streak

Other mistake: When Saverio Guerra runs into the clothes line after the chase sequence with Martin Lawrence, you will notice that the clothes that fall on his face after he hits the ground were not on the clothes line, also the clothes that did fall off disappear.

Factual error: None of the police vehicles, marked or unmarked, have a steady red light to the front, as required on ALL emergency vehicles in California, but not required in any other US state.

Continuity mistake: When Martin Lawrence is interrogating the driver of the "B 96" Truck and smashing his face with the door, the truck driver's position keeps changing each time you see him.

Continuity mistake: During the end chase with Martin Lawrence on the truck, the background changes considerably. It goes from being mountainous to flat in one shot.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Miles and the other bloke are talking, there is dust on his gun that disappears and reappears constantly. (01:22:00)

Continuity mistake: Miles' police car gets wrecked when the truck at the end hits it and it suffers serious damage. This includes knocking the lights off the top of the car, but when Miles is leaving having killed his ex-partner from the robbery at the start, it is in better condition with the lights back on the car.

Continuity mistake: When the man picks up the harpoon at the start to fire across the street, it is not loaded. Camera cuts and it is now loaded.

Continuity mistake: After the truck has its tires blown near the end, there is one shot where they are still intact.

Continuity mistake: When asked if he is smoking at the start, the man replies no. You then see a pile of fag (cigarette) butts on the floor. When the cop car is first shown, they have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: Just as Miles plans the sting, he closes a door with a red sign on it. The camera cuts to the outside and the sign has switched doors.

Plot hole: When Miles tries to hand the pizza to Carlson, he steals the ID card off him. Carlson would have realised that he had lost the card the next time he came to open a security door and would have reported it as lost. This means that his original card would have been blocked, meaning that Miles wouldn't have been able to use it.

Suggested correction: Unless he didn't report it lost due to the fear of being reprimanded for losing the card.

Miles is a strictly by the book cop. No way he wouldn't report his ID card as lost. The original posting is correct. Correcting an entry by guessing what may have been going through a character's mind only works if it fits the characters usual mindset or attitude, which this correction doesn't.

Factual error: The truck at the end wouldn't get as far as it does (about 1.5 miles to 2 miles) with four flat tires and having hit all the stuff it did. Including police cars, road blocks and 4x4's.

Visible crew/equipment: When Carlson talks about letting the small fish go to catch the big fish, a boom mic can be seen reflected in the car door.

Continuity mistake: When Miles has found the diamond, the air vent cover is open. When Carlson walks in it is now closed. (00:51:30)

Tulley: He also called me ugly and said I couldn't read good.

Trivia: Anytime there is an overhead shot of the LAPD police cars, number 664 is always there. ML even drives it at one point, and I think in one shot where he chases the armoured car, its number is 664.
