Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dom is pulling his red RX7 into the garage after the first race is broken up by the cops, he is making a right turn into the garage.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie where Brian and Dominic try to beat the speeding train, Brian's windshield wipers are suddenly on. Then the camera cuts away, and then back, and the wipers are now off.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when, Dom knocks the Chinese guy off of his motorbike. In the previous shot if you slow it down you can see that it's a street full of houses to the left and right, but these suddenly vanish and are replaced by a big hill which the Chinese guy rolls down.

Continuity mistake: Right at the end when Vin and the rest are preparing to rob the final truck, Vin says something like "Let's go." A duffel bag of equipment comes flying at him, presumably from another person, that Vin catches in mid-air. In an immediate overhead shot from Vin's back, he has the bag in his hand but there is no one anywhere near him who could have thrown the bag. The closest person in maybe 25 feet away. The shallow angle that the bag arrived and the heavy equipment in it shows that it was a close throw of a few feet at most. (01:16:00)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when the Chinese guy is shooting at Brian's car, if you watch closely in the background, the street changes from having lots of cars on it to none or hardly none at all. (01:28:45)

Then it cuts to a shot of Lance taking off his helmet. If you look in the background, you can see Brian getting out of his car again, and shutting his door again. (00:27:27)


Continuity mistake: Watch the scene where everyone is scrambling to run to their cars after Leon yells "Cops!" When Mia runs and gets into the passenger seat of Letty's purple 240SX, you can see that the driver is not Letty. The driver looks nothing like Letty (hair and face are different). (01:46:48)

Continuity mistake: During the first race scene Brian uses NOS to take over the guy next to him in the red car. You can see Brian taking over the red car, then it cuts to inside the red car, and Brian is taking over it again. (00:18:40)
