The story of the baseball bats - have you ever noticed?

The story of the baseball bats - have you ever noticed?

This part of The Warrior movie has some continuity errors if you have ever noticed or wondered - the running Warriors total is in brackets;

Swan and Snow come up being a trailing Baseball Fury. Swan knocks him down of course and steals his bat (1)

Ajax knocks down the "popsicle" Baseball Fury and steals his bat (2)

(Continuity error) Further into the fight Swan still has his bat in his left hand and throws a punch with his right (camera cuts to Ajax and Snow fighting) and cuts back to Swan, who is now throwing punches with 2 empty hands (1).

(Continuity error) Swan somehow fights the Baseball Furies with a bat again that we didn't see him pick up or seize (2)

That fight ends and Swan, Ajax, Snow and Cowboy all (re)arm themselves with a bat each (4).

The 4 walk past the park bench still carrying their bats. Ajax sits next to the undercover cop whilst still carrying his bat. He gets caught by her of course, but (continuity error) his bat has vanished from the bench or from near it by then anyway (3)

Swan throws his bat at the cop just after re-finding Mercy (tripping him up of course) and flees into the Subway tunnel without it (2)

One of The Punks has a baseball bat. Snow and Cowboy still have their bats too (2).

Swan floors The Punk who has a bat. Snow's bat is knocked from his hands by the impact of striking a Punk with it (1). The Punk with a bat swings at Snow and misses, hitting a wall. We see a bat lying on the floor (the one knocked from Snow's hands).

(Continuity error) Snow now has a bat again, possibly seized from The Punk who just swung at him and missed and hit the wall (both men are in more or less the same position as when the camera cut away from them) but any such seizing of the bat is not explicitly shown (2)

(Continuity error) Snow has no bat again and kicks a Punk through the toilet cubicle door (1).

(Continuity error) Snow has a bat again (2), but breaks it when hitting a Punk with it (1)

Swan throws the Punk who has a bat through a different toilet cubicle door and the Punk is still carrying a bat when that happens.

Cowboy is seen on the train and then back at Coney Island with his bat (1) and only he has one. So a plot-hole. The Warriors thought to take bats from the defeated Baseball Furies, but not from the defeated Punk who had a bat too (though Swan does take a knife from one of them - we then see him with it under the boardwalk and when stabbing Luther).

When the lead Riff clears the way on the beach for The Warriors to pass by safely, Cowboy still has his bat (1), but (continuity error) all of their weapons have somehow vanished by the time they finally walk down the beach to end the movie.

At one point, there's also 9 furies running in the chase, but goes back to 7 by the time the fight takes place.

I just checked again - and after snow knocks down the lagging fury there are somehow still 9 of them chasing cowboy and ajax (just before cowboy says "I can't make it") - but only the heels of the leading fury can be seen to the bottom left of frame - they did use 2 sets of runners on different nights
