Corrected entry: After the first street race the police come and when Brian gets back into the GTR he doesn't switch the engine on, even after turning it off moments before.
Corrected entry: It's completely crazy to reverse while travelling such a high speed in the spin scene at the highway. This can be harmful to the engine as well as the gear box. In fact, not only harmful, but most likely destructive.
Corrected entry: The ESDs could never work the way they're supposed to. Those three prongs are connected to the outer shell of the car and would not be able to send any voltage/electronic message to the ECU of the car and affect the car the way it did (brakes, engine revs, etc).
Corrected entry: Brian turns up to the first race and suggests upping the stakes. They are upped, but everyone has the right amount of money in bundles. They didn't know the stakes would be raised, and certainly not to what. So it's near impossible that all 3 would have the exactly right bundles of money.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian arrives at the race in his skyline, there is no GTR at the race. However, you can clearly see the GTR during the race.
00:04:30 - 00:09:15
Corrected entry: When Brian and Roman drive to the impound yard they skid to a stop, which kicks up a lot of dust that settles on their cars. When they arrive back at Carter's, the cars are spotless.
00:32:30 - 00:34:05
Corrected entry: When the driver of the Supra crashes, look closely and you'll see the rear bumper come off. But when he climbs out, it's still on.
Corrected entry: Right after Brian hands the money over to Tej at the first race, he walks over to his car and it seems that he's about to get into the car. But MUCH later we actually see him approaching his car again, opening the door, spotting Monica and getting in.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian and Rome get out of the customs office and discuss a whole new strategy, Brian calls Tej and asks him for help. Brian is wearing a blue shirt and Rome is wearing a white tank top. In the next scene, Brian and Rome are wearing completely new outfits, but when they have a look at the stored cars, they are wearing the previous outfits again (blue shirt, white tank top). And in the next scene it's the same again: While they are sharing memories at sunset, Brian is wearing his grey shirt again and Rome wears also his previous outfit.
01:07:30 - 01:08:25
Corrected entry: When Rome and Brian go to collect Verone's money there is a grey Dodge parked outside of the trailer home. Just before Enrique opens the door, in the lower left hand corner the cameraman is backing up.
Corrected entry: When Brian and Rome are going to rescue Monica, they are talking the whole time as to what next to do. We see several edited-in backgrounds at every close-up, and in one of Rome's closeups we see a road pointing straight at the car. This would be impossible, the road where Brian and Rome are driving is parallel to the sea, and that would mean that this street would lead right into the sea.
Corrected entry: In one of the last scenes, Rome says something about "... stay here in Miami to keep you out of trouble bro". There's a close-up of Brian, and Rome's visible in the right corner as he starts to speak, but his mouth doesn't move.
Corrected entry: In the scene towards the end when Brian and Rome jump onto the back of the boat, Rome complains of a broken arm and Brian hits his head and is holding his forehead with his hand and reveals a bruise. Back on land, the bruise is gone.
Corrected entry: In the highway scene, with all of the potential employees racing to the boatyard, just before the shot of the Mustang going between the two trucks, there is a frame or two of a boat being towed on a trailer, then suddenly it's replaced by the Mustang shot.
Corrected entry: In the whole sequence where Rome and Brian are racing with the other guys to get to that impound lot, you can see several shots of Brian's feet and his socks are grey. However, when he gets out of the car again, his socks are white.
Corrected entry: Immediately after the fly through of the car's electrical system, we see the US Customs tracking computer display. It reads Skynet.
Corrected entry: When the cars are on the highway there is a scene when the Evo is speeding past the camera at the close up angle, beside the Evo there is the grey Corvette and behind is the orange and then the blue muscle behind it. In the next shot the blue car is in front of the orange car.
Corrected entry: In the race at the beginning, the front of Suki's car is all banged up. However, when the cops arrive, as Suki drives the car the front is completely fine.
Corrected entry: In that scene where Brian is introducing Rome to Tej, there is a big waterski-race going on, and Tej is following it apparently with great interest. Yet he's always looking in the wrong direction, for the waterski-racers have to get past the house-boat, which is seen to Tej's left.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the two thugs and their boss have searched Paul Walker's houseboat for the girl they turn to leave, satisfied she is not on board. Just after they have left Paul Walker's friend turns to him and comments really loudly about the girl on the boat. Surely they would have heard him?
Corrected entry: At the start of the film you see Tej on the phone and when he walks into the room, beside him you see a red cabinet and a calendar next to it. In the next close up view beside him there is a harnessed alloy.
Corrected entry: When Roman and Brian arrive at Tej's garage they approach into the backyard, where the water-skiing is held, and if you keep your ears open you can hear a girl shout out, "I love you, Tyrese".
Corrected entry: In the scene when you see Tej, Suki and Jimmy playing cards, you see Rome leaning against the blue Yenko and in the background you can see two blokes one looking at the camera and one pointing.
Corrected entry: When Brian and Rome are racing Fabio and Fonzie for the pink slips, look at the speedo just after Brian applies his nitrous. It's already at 120-140ish. A few shots later, you see Brian change gear, and the speedo moves up to where it previously was.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film, Brian and Rome are going to rescue Monica in the blue Dodge. Brian tells Rome to "put on his seat belt", and Rome subsequently grabs for it, but you notice afterwards, the he's NEVER wearing a seat belt. Not during the jump, not after the jump, and it's most obvious when they're talking inside the car after Brian shot Carter.
01:31:30 - 01:33:05
Corrected entry: When Brian is spinning the Evo around so he's driving in reverse, the cars he's passing are not moving (notice the rims - they are not spinning).
Corrected entry: The first time Brian's car gets hit with the ESD it shorts out his electrical system but for some reason he is acting like his brakes don't work. National DOT standards and all the laws that govern automotive design and manufacture strictly require that no part of the braking system rely on electronics. This is because electronics are not reliable enough for such a vital part of driving safety. Even if illegally modified, a racer wouldn't make his brakes rely on the electrics for the same reason. While the brakes might be less responsive, they wouldn't be as unresponsive as depicted.EMTurbo
Corrected entry: When Brian and Rome decide to chase the boat in the Yenko they have to back up. You see the rear tire spinning in the dirt then it stops spinning but you can hear the other tire spinning. This is not possible if this is really a Yenko. In a Yenko Camaro the suspension consisted of a 12-bolt with 4.10 gears, Posi-traction, multileaf springs, and special shocks.EMTurbo
Corrected entry: In the first race, it is very obvious that sometimes the cars have mirrors, and sometimes they don't. In almost every shot you can see no mirror in the interior of the car (which is quite appropriate, for streetracers normally don't have mirrors in their cars), but there are one or two scenes where Brian is looking into the mirror, and suddenly the mirror is right where it should be.
Corrected entry: In the first race sequence between the four cars, most of them are racing with their windows open. No one would race with windows open (this makes your car less streamlined as wind flows into the windows (racing with a convertible isn't seen very often either)), especially when there are thousands of dollars on the line.
Corrected entry: During the first scene Suki (the girl) is shown racing a convertible. They were going approximately 90 MPH and her hair was hardly blowing.
Corrected entry: During a boat race, someone is talking through a kind of microphone (in don't know the correct American word, because I am from the Netherlands). As soon as the main characters start to talk to each other there is coming no more sound out of the microphone. After they have stopped talking, it suddenly is possible again to hear the microphone.
Corrected entry: Dom's RX-7 that he uses in Fast and the Furious appears with it's new Latino Owner in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Compare the side graphics of both cars. It's the same.
Corrected entry: Does anyone else think it odd to have hydraulics and huge sound systems in "race" cars? Hydraulics add a considerable amount of weight to a car. The last thing you want in a race is extra weight. More than one car is seen racing with big sound systems. Brian's and Rome's car both have big sound systems.EMTurbo
Corrected entry: In the scene when they get the package from Verone's Ferrari, Roman gets out a revolver and shoots the cops car about sixteen times without reloading. A revolver holds a maximum of six bullets.
Corrected entry: There would've been a much easier way for Monica to escape from the bad guys. There is one shot inside the houseboat where you can see some small stairs leading up to the roof of the boat, so she really needn't have climbed out of that small window in the roof of the bathroom.
Corrected entry: Has anyone else noticed that no one in the film says the word "NOS" like in the first movie? Even on the steering wheels where the NOS stickers were, they now say N2O. This is because NOS sponsored the first film and they didn't this time.
Corrected entry: In the scene where all the racers are supposedly speeding down I-75 in South Florida, the shot widens to show some very tall mountains in the background. There are no tall mountains South Florida. The highest point in Florida is at a whopping 345ft above sea level, unless you count the rides at amusement parks in Orlando. Obviously this was filmed somewhere else.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, during the first race, if you look at the Camo Supra, the neon lights under the car keep changing colours. It goes green, then red, then back to green and then back to red (and it keeps doing this the whole race.)
Corrected entry: At the start, when Brian and the Supra-racer reach the bridge (near the end of the race), we see a shot of the speedometer of the Supra (orange car). It's just reached the 180kph mark, and it's still rising. However, a short while later, we see Brian's speedometer and it's just cleared 160kph. How could Brian's car have overtaken (or jumped, in this case) over the Supra when it was travelling slower?
Corrected entry: After Brian and Roman pick up the package from the red Ferrari in the impound lot, Brian tells Roman to "put his blouse on". He does but doesn't button it and gets in the car. Then, in the next scene, when Roman gets out the car, his shirt is perfectly buttoned. He would have no time inside the car to button his shirt seeing as they are travelling over 100mph.
Corrected entry: When, in the final chase scene, Brian O'Connor is chasing the boat, he is in a channel (you can see the opposite margin) but after he does the car jumping stunt and finishes fighting all the bad guys you can't see land anywhere around the boat.
Corrected entry: When Brian O'connor smacks the gate of the supposedly real impound lot with his car he hits the gate going nearly 100 MPH. This would definitely put a huge dent or something on his car, but when he stops the front end is shown and it is completely intact.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian does the stare-and-drive on Monica, when he stops his car is about 4 inches before the white line, yet in the next shot it's halfway past the white line.
Corrected entry: When Rome and Brian are driving in the impound lot, watch the segment after Rome laughs out loud. Before they make a right turn, the Eclipse was following the Evo. When the camera switches to the next shot, the two cars are side by side.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian and Rome are Racing Fonzie and Fabio, Brian appears to shift down as he is turning around the barrels. If you watch closely, you can see, all he is really doing is moving his hand in the shifting motion. (Note, this mistake happens several other times while Brian is driving the EVO.)
Corrected entry: In the intro race, the racers all seem to have 5,6 or 7 gears, but Brian has at least 12, as every scene he is in, it shows him changing a gear...wierd car don't ya reckon?
Corrected entry: The black guy who drives the supra wipes out in the first major drag, does some serious damage to the car when it hits the advertisement structure, maybe even a write-off. A day or so later when they leave the huge warehouse with 100 or so cars he comes out with his now intact supra.
Corrected entry: After the fight whilst Brian and Roman go to see the FBI man and the other cop Roman picks up the cop's lunch and starts to eat the burger. After a bit of banter Roman chucks the half eaten burger on the table and leaves. In the next shot in Brian's car it has amazingly appeared back in his hand.
Corrected entry: In the beginning scene, where Brian races for the very first time in this movie, it is said that they are racing in Miami. If you look in the background, you see they race around Staples Center, which is in Los Angeles.
Corrected entry: When Brian and his mate are running from the cops on the interstate, they are being chased by numerous police cars. The cars they have got are highly tuned street racers, so shouldn't they be able to outrun the standard cop cars easily?
Corrected entry: When they return to the mansion with the cigar. The owner mentions they now owe him a new gate for his boatyard. What about the car window they bashed out?
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Brian and Roman kick out the windshield because it is cracked. However, there is a shot where the rear view mirror is in its original place. Either the rear view mirror should have fallen off with the windshield or it is floating in midair.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Verone says that he only told one person about the airfield. However, he told Fuentes, the two Spanish thugs, and the driver of the Navigator. How did he know which person told the police?
Corrected entry: Brian and Roman talked about the days when they used to race, but if that is the case, why did Brian have such a hard time learning to drive the Eclipse in "The Fast and The Furious"?
