Continuity mistake: The final battle starts around dawn, and it's very dark when the bad guys arrive, but between shots it suddenly gets much brighter. (01:38:50)

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter drops off the cliff it's fine and sunny. As soon as it lands there's thunder and lightning. 2 mins later it's sunny again when they get back up the cliff. (01:50:00)

Suggested correction: When the helicopter starts to crash and go down you can see the storm approaching. The characters are then seen coming round and getting up following the crash. 2 or 3 minutes could have easily passed in that time as it's not shown how long it takes for them to come round. When Hobbs and Brixton are exchanging remarks, the rain then starts. When we see the trio up on the cliff after Brixton has been shut down, it's clear some time has passed. Since they are now at the top of a cliff. Not necessarily the one they fell down.

Continuity mistake: When breaking out of Eteon, there is one shot where Hattie is lay on her back on the bonnet of the 4x4. Camera changes and now she's on her front. (01:17:10)

Factual error: The grenade booby trap in Hattie's flat gets triggered, with the pin coming out and lever comes off. Once that happens the fuse is set and there's no way to stop it exploding, but Shaw puts the pin back in and renders it inert again. (00:25:50)

Other mistake: Deckard and Hattie were children at the same time, with Deckard appearing to be no more than 3 years older than Hattie. Although Jason Statham is presumably playing a character younger than he actually is, he is still noticeably much older than his on-screen sister. Jason Statham is in fact 21 years older than Vanessa Kirby.

Suggested correction: And people can age faster than others depending on the stress they've been under.

Even taking things like stress and hard living into account, Jason Statham is still much older looking than the character he is supposed to be playing. Or are you saying that he's under so much stress that, while he is in otherwise outstanding shape, his face is that of a man in his late 40's to early 50's? He looks at the very least 10 years older than the character is aparently supposed to be.

Continuity mistake: When Hobbs and Shaw are in the glass room meeting, Hobbs throws a chair that's next to the table at the glass towards the men on the other side. That chair lands on the floor near the glass, but when the camera pans after that, it shows Hobbs' hand on the backside of that same chair, and the chair is still at the table. (00:20:10)

Factual error: The lorry trailers Shaw drives under have no side bars fitted. This is a legal requirement in the UK and Europe to stop people doing exactly this, also they are fitted for safety reasons to stop people going under the trailer in an accident. (00:37:40)

Continuity mistake: When driving towards the lorries crossing in the McLaren, you get a long shot of the road and there are no arrows painted on the road. Camera changes to a close up and arrows are now on the road. (00:37:30)

Factual error: When the multiple vehicles are chained together and latched onto the helicopter, the chopper starts lifting up hard enough so that most of the vehicles are off the ground with the lead one only touching by the front wheels. The driver then hits NOS in the car to super charge the front wheels. We see them spin on the dirt road and pull the other cars down bringing the chopper down. However this defies almost every law of physics. With the cars lifted up and the weight taken off the front wheels of that vehicle, and it being on dirt with no spikes, there's no way it would have the traction to pull the chopper down at all. It would just peal out in the dirt. (01:45:40)

Factual error: In the helicopter scene, the main villain yells at the pilot to climb. He then goes up and throws the pilot out and takes over. It is a common misconception that helicopter pilots sit in the same seat as airline pilots (left seat). Helicopter pilots sit in the right seat. He just threw out someone that wasn't the pilot. (01:44:00)

Continuity mistake: During the morning scene, it shows Hobbs on the right side of the bed when he turns off his alarm and wakes up, but in the next shot, he's on the left side of the bed.

Continuity mistake: Before Hattie and Hobbs get in the plane they have several bruises and wounds on their faces which disappear.

Continuity mistake: At the end while Hobbs and Hattie are in front of the sun, it's almost dawn and the sun sun is shining on their faces, then it's high in the sky.

Factual error: When the Eteon bike is riding over the cars in the alley, the registration plates are completely the wrong format for the UK. Most cars use either the "A 123 BCD" or the "AB 12 CDE" format. Some personalized plates can be different such as "38 G." However none use the format shown in the film "D51M R9S" (00:36:20)

Revealing mistake: During the electric shock scenes, the chairs are made of metal and hooked up to Jeep batteries. Hobbs and Shaw then proceed to smash the chairs up in the ensuing fight scene. Only for them to reappear just as the bomb goes off destroying the plant. (01:12:50 - 01:15:25)

Revealing mistake: When Locke holds up the CT17 fact sheet the article on the bottom of the page is actually the lines of the CIA Agent that talks to Shaw. Right down to remarks about Hattie. (00:18:00)

Revealing mistake: At the start, Hattie flings her shotgun over her back, and runs forward to jump on some boxes. In this shot you see the two bad guys that she takes down stood waiting for their cue to move. (00:01:35)

Brixton: Look at me. I'm Black Superman!

More quotes from Hobbs & Shaw

Trivia: Shaw walks past a Mini Cooper at one point, making a reference to a job in Italy and how Shaw would have been useful as a heavy bus driver. A nod to his role in The Italian Job remake, although given it's an original mini and his bus comment, it's got more parallels to the original. While it's been theorised Deckard Shaw might have been "Handsome Rob" in the remake, just undercover, the timelines don't work, given when Rob was in prison Shaw was in the military. (00:46:00)
