Trivia: Director David Leitch has a cameo as an Eteon helicopter pilot. (01:43:40)

Trivia: Jason Statham's line "things I've done I have to make amends for" has been specifically stated to reference him killing Han in Fast and Furious 6. A campaign was started online called "Justice for Han", prompting the acknowledgement of this needing to be dealt with in-universe. (01:37:50)

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)

Trivia: The mysterious processed voice of The Director is actually that of Ryan Reynolds, under his pseudonym of Champ Nightingale. Which doesn't necessarily mean his character is the primary antagonist. But might.

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.


When the bad guy catches her, you can see the device on her back. The countdown shows 20 minutes. Since the device will take 30 minutes to complete its process, it means that only 10 minutes passed since the device was activated, before the final battle, in the middle of the night.
