Fast & Furious 8

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

Factual error: Roman is completely submerged in ice cold water and is trapped in his car when pulled out, he would be suffering from hypothermia by the end of the chase but is completely unaffected by it.

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 Tej first hit the ice in the Lamborghini because he was going too fast.

Factual error: A submarine's propeller is made for propelling it through water, not air. Activating the engine while the submarine is propped up on land will not cause it to move.

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 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.

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.
