Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Credits at the end of movie state that Rubin Carter is the only boxer to have received an honorary championship title belt from the World Boxing Council in 1993. This is incorrect as the boxer Joey Giardello also received an honorary championship belt at the same banquet in Las Vegas.
  • The real 'Rubin 'Hurricane Carter is only 5'8" and 155 pounds, being about 4 inches shorter and nearly 40 pounds lighter than Denzel Washington (even when the actor slimmed down to play Hurricane). In actuality, Washington (and the actors who play his opponents in the ring) classify as heavyweights.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): Although the scene takes place in New Jersey, just before the car crashes, it passes a Shoppers Drug Mart advertising sign: SDM is a chain of drug stores found only in Canada.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After the shootings in the bar are shown the first time, the exterior shot shows the traffic light at Madison Ave. In the later flashback, there is no traffic light.
