When Cates leaves the police station to get Hammond at Vromans, he clearly has a split and bloody lip. When he arrives at Vromans it is magically gone. Must have stopped at the ER on the way, huh?
Thanks to Jeff Morris
Very early on in the film, when Cates and Hammond are on their first car ride together, you can see Reggie's dusty convertible a few car lengths up the road. The convertible would not actually be taken out of storage where it had been for nearly three years, until much later in the film.
Thanks to Zack
During the shootout with Ganz and Billy at the hotel in the beginning of the movie, Cates actually gets off SEVEN shots from a six-shot revolver without reloading! After Cates reloads, Ganes fires EIGHT shots from the same gun in that scene. Ah, the magic of movies!

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake

The following goofs for "48 HRS" are apparently bogus. If you disagree or have additional info, please update us.

Murphy finds Billy sitting on the bed, when Billy approaches Murphy, he (Murphy) then fires one round at Billy, but he ends up with two bullet holes in his chest.
