Fast & Furious 8

New this month Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie in the ice chase scene, Hobbs' get away truck has tank tracks for wheels, not tires. When he rams the Russians coming from the right, you can see his getaway truck has a tire on the front left. The next time you see the truck it is back to having only tracks again.

Factual error: Throughout the "Manhattan" race scenes, it is obvious that the location is nowhere near New York. The wide two-way streets, west coast-style traffic signals, street furniture, and architecture look nothing like Manhattan.

Deliberate mistake: The coordinates listed for Hobbs' soccer game (34.1381N, 118.3534W) at the beginning are not actually a wooded suburban area with a recreational field, but are in fact the longitude and latitude for the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park in Los Angeles. (00:15:20)

Revealing mistake: On the ice the tank is firing - in slow motion we see empty shells are littering the area. The shells have crimped ends, revealing them to be blanks.

Factual error: When the EMP goes off - apart from the obvious like the ridiculous shockwave...it causes the big gates to fall down. This is a unsecure security principal called "Failing open." I highly doubt that a secure military station would "fail open." Instead if would fail closed - ie if something went wrong then the defense systems would default to being closed and impenetrable.

Factual error: The Akula class submarine is an attack class submarine, not an SSBN (Missile Carrier).

Plot hole: The nuclear codes are stolen and the Russian guy holding them was let go by Dom. He would contact his government to let them know and the codes changed. Cypher would also know this so her plan is flawed.

Factual error: The Russian submarine is propped up on steel supports with its propeller well out of the water, so there is no way it could have been launched so quickly. Filling a dry dock and launching usually takes several hours.

Continuity mistake: Dom escapes his crew by crashing through a flower stall, leaving flowers and other debris on his car. Just seconds later we see his car again and it's pristine - it looks like it's just been washed.

Continuity mistake: While everybody hooks Dom the sun on the floor changes between shots.

Factual error: At the end of the film where the gang are trying to outrun the submarine, it should be noted that submarines cannot travel much faster than about 40mph when submerged, let alone above water/icebreaking. Yet it is shown at least keeping pace with the Fast and Furious heroes.

Suggested correction: It's also likely the cars wouldn't be going much faster over rough ice and snow. Look what happened when Roman first hit the ice in the Lamborghini because he was going too fast.

Continuity mistake: Dom dives out of the burning car and lands on the concrete sidewalk, but then a different shot shows him getting up from the road. No way he could have reversed all that forwards momentum and rolled backwards.

Other mistake: When Dom and Cipher break into Mr Nobody's base, they use "the latest in concussion grenade technology which scrambles all senses and lasts an hour" which would include vision and is reflected as such. 2 min later Letty and Hobbs are able to see the kiss Cipher gives Dom.

Continuity mistake: As Dom escapes the grappling hooks, the cars get wrecked. He crawls out from his car and the silver briefcase is within arm's reach, right next to double yellow lines. Only problem is, in the earlier shot from above, he crashed nowhere near lines like that, and there was no briefcase there either.

Continuity mistake: Prison scene - Jason Statham jumps over the first rail and lands with his right hand on ground. He would have rolled over his right shoulder, but when it cuts to him he rolls on his left shoulder. Next rail he jumps over and right when his feet hit the ground his bracelet is on his left wrist, but it's previously been on his right.

Other mistake: How did "Cipher" get in her car and drive off without replacing the fuel linkage and putting down the hood? (00:13:20)

Suggested correction: You see her replace the fuel linkage and you don't see the car as it drives off so you can't say for definite if the hood was down.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase in New York none of the grappling hooks appear on the cars until they are needed, most noticeable on Roman's Bentley.

Continuity mistake: When the red Toyota starts up and rams the taxi in the New York scene the front off-side light cover pops off. In the next shot when it pulls away the light is repaired and the damage on the front is less, like brand new.

Continuity mistake: The extras behind the guy Dom's cousin is indebted to keep changing in different shots.

Continuity mistake: When Dom is taking the panels off the car at the start, his cousin goes to take a sip of coke. Camera changes and his hand is down by his side. (00:05:00)
