Training Day

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.

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

Continuity mistake: After visiting the Sandman's Wife's house Harris's car is shot at and two bullet holes are made in the rear window. A couple of scenes later the car is seen driving through "the jungle" and the window is as good as new.

Trivia: The scene at the start of the movie where Ethan meets Denzel in the diner - it is the same diner that is used in the movie "Seven," where Morgan Freeman meets with Gwyneth Paltrow. If you watch these two scenes, you can see exactly the same camera angles (i.e. the cook cracking eggs onto the hot stove).

Trivia: The film was shot on location, and some real gangs can be seen in the street when Denzel Washington goes to visit his wife/girlfriend and also during the showdown at the end.

Alonzo Harris: It's not what you know, it's what you can prove.


Question: When Denzel and Ethan go to visit the Spanish gangsters towards the end and Denzel gives the presents, Is the money inside the blender for them to kill Ethan's character or simply he owed some money? If then the money wasn't for them to kill him what reason did they have to kill him?

Chosen answer: The money to kill Hawke was in the kitchen appliance box.

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.

Chosen 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.

Question: What exactly is Alonzo asking the three wise men for at the restaurant? Do they give him the go ahead to steal from and kill Roger? And more importantly are the three wise men corrupt cops like Alonzo?

Answer: Alonzo is asking the three wise men for a search warrant for Roger's home, effectively giving him the go ahead to confiscate the money he is hiding there. The wise men are indeed corrupt, the search warrant is completely illegal.
