New this month Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, Roman's shirt changes between 3 different shades of blue. Light color when talking with Brian about Verone, then changes when talking with Bilkins, and finally as Brian and him are walking away talking about opening a garage together.
Continuity mistake: In the first race, the Supra crashes down after jumping the bridge, and a side shot shows that the Supra's rear wheels have changed from the expensive chrome items to the standard Supra wheels.
Continuity mistake: When the Evolution smashes into the gate in the boatyard it should have made a really big dent in the front of the car or at least a scratch on the bodywork. Yet in the next scene when you see it come to a stop in front of the Ferrari, the car is in perfect condition with no dents or scratches.
Revealing mistake: After the first race, when Tej walks over to Brian with a bunch of people, there is a girl in a orange and black top, and as she walks towards Brian, she is looking directly at the place where the camera is supposed to be and backs away, so the camera can pull in for the shot.
Revealing mistake: When Brian is spinning his Evo around on the highway to pay Rome back, we can see at that one brief interior shot that there are no cars in the background. (Paul Walker did that spin for real on an empty freeway, but of course he did that with no cars around).
Continuity mistake: Throughout the opening race scene, you'll notice that Suki's car has neon lights around the rear license plate. However, in one shot, just after the second corner, there are no neons. One of the less detailed clone cars perhaps?
Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene towards the end of the film, Brian is not wearing his seat belt in close-ups, yet in the outside-the-car shots, the driver has his seat belt on.
Visible crew/equipment: Near the end, in a shot of Monica and the baddie (just before they get onto the boat) standing beside a large vehicle, the camera is quite close and then it tracks backwards. The reflection of the legs of the steadicam operator walking backwards as he moves the camera, is seen at the side of the car.
Revealing mistake: When Suki and Tej are being booked for speeding when they took Brian's and Roman's cars, the police officer next to them should be writing on his notepad, but instead the words are already written and he is just moving the pen over these words.
Revealing mistake: When Brian and Rome are going to rescue Monica, they are talking the whole time as to what next to do. We see several edited-in backgrounds at every close-up, and in one of Rome's close-ups we see a road pointing straight at the car. In other close-ups of Rome from the same angle, we see a river. The road that can be seen in the one close-up is not possible.
Continuity mistake: When Brian and Roman are racing to the car impound to get the package for Carter, at the start of the freeway scene Brian says "Lets see what this thing can do." When he steps on the gas the camera cuts to an outside view and there is a large HGV in front and a 4x4 pickup to the right, but in the following overhead shot the 4x4 pickup has vanished and is replaced with a Mini Van.
Continuity mistake: When Brian and Rome find Verone's red car at the impound lot, just after they get out of their cars, the Mitsubishi sign on the Evo's front is missing. In the next shot, however, it's there again.
Continuity mistake: During the drive and stare scene with Brian and Monica, watch Monica's bangs as the shot changes from inside the car to outside. When the camera is shooting from outside the car, Monica's bangs are blowing around from the wind, but from the camera shooting inside the car, her bangs are neatly in place.
Continuity mistake: When Brian is escaping from the police at the start, he drives past a building with a big face and an elephant on it. When the Skyline drives past the building, looking out from the driver's side window, the car is driving past the building again.
Continuity mistake: When Brian is trying to get rid of that ESD-System (that thing which is shot by the cop to break down the electronics system of the car), the bad guy is holding him by his shirt in a much different way than he does in the close-ups.
Continuity mistake: When Brian is driving the Skyline to the first race, and during the race, the car has rubber pedals. But after his Skyline gets shot with the ESD and he tries to slam on the brakes, the pedals are the aftermarket Momo style pedals.
Continuity mistake: In Verone's background check of Rome, it shows a list of items he had purchased. It is mostly made up of renting Blockbuster Videos and the items were purchased in different states back and forth.
Continuity mistake: In the very first racing scene, when they all go around the first turn and it shows them all struggling to hold their steering wheels through the turn, it shows an overview of the 4 cars. As you can see the pink Honda S2000, is in front, and to the left of the red Mazda RX-7. In the very next shot, the Honda S2000 is directly behind the RX-7.
Revealing mistake: At the end of the first race, when Brian and the other guy prepare to jump the bridge, it cuts to Brian who shifts gears and puts on the accelerator. Look closely at the "Revs" counter (next to the speedometer), it is showing almost 0 revs on a car that's moving at very high speed.
Continuity mistake: When Brian and Roman are speeding down the highway to get to the boatyard, the camera cuts to inside police headquarters (I think). On the computer screen are two GPS signals (Brian and Roman), and it says 6th and 7th Street, but when it cuts to a wider angle it says 4th, 5th and 6th Street, indicating the screen has moved up instead of down. (Zoom is required.)
Continuity mistake: When Roman and Brian are fighting in the sand, the smudge on Roman's face disappears and reappears several times.
