New this month Plot hole: Dom arrives in New York at the same time as Hobbs and his team. Dom meets up with Shaw's mum and then proceeds to steal the nuclear codes. Meanwhile at the same time, Hobbs and the team arrive at their secret hideout and start preparing the cars. The time frame isn't the same - Hobbs and co. simply haven't got the time.
Plot hole: Using an EMP to disable the security at the base would render anything electrical useless, computers, cars, cameras, anything with a micro chip in it. Firing a EMP directly under something you want to steal like a submarine is completely stupid - Cypher would know this.
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: 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.

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.
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: Near the end, the Russian chase vehicle fires a grenade at Hobbs' vehicle. The tube on the top far right is used and can be seen open. When that same vehicle goes for the second shot at Hobbs, the tube that was used before is unused now. When Dom hits the vehicle shortly after that there is a very close shot that shows that despite having just fired another round the array of tubes is again unused.
