Did You Know?

Goofs

Although Magnum did not witness the kidnapping, he should've been aware that the kidnapper's vehicle was a blue sedan because he had interrogated Mitsu before. However, when pursuing the vehicles with T.C in the chopper, they had to check all vehicles. Magnum should've realized at first hand that the blue sedan was the one to investigate first and not one of the last ones. See more »
