Revealing mistake: In the final racing scene, when Dominic's car hits the truck and flips in the air, you can clearly see the stunt driver's helmet as the car turns in the air. (01:37:45)
Revealing mistake: There is a scene near the end of the movie, where Brian is chasing Johnny and Lance on motorcycles that just shot his friend. At one point, first the motorcycles, and then the car leap over a hill on the street. You can see two ramps at the top of the hill, one for each motorcycle. (01:32:50)
Revealing mistake: In the opening scene when showing the truck full of Panasonic goods, there are products to the ceiling on the left and right, but very little in the center. Trucks are always loaded uniformly to prevent load shift damage, especially the type that would have occurred during the hijack from the swerving side to side. (00:00:50)
Revealing mistake: In the truck chase towards the end, Leon says "I got her, you get Vince off that truck." While he speaks he is speeding along, but his tachometer and speedometer read zero. (01:21:10)
Revealing mistake: When Dom crashes his Charger into a semi, the semi is approaching in the shot from behind the Charger. When the camera angle changes to the front view, the semi is stationary. In this shot, the semi has no front left wheel, and as the Charger passes through the hood of the truck, there is no engine in the truck.
Revealing mistake: During the high-speed chase with the tractor trailer, Vince fires one grappling wire through the truck's passenger windscreen to pull the glass out. He fires a second grappling wire through the now-open windscreen and grapples the passenger seat, then attaches the grappling wire to his harness and leaps to the front of the truck. So, his only tether to the truck is the horizontal grappling wire attached inside the truck cab. But, when the truck driver slams on the brakes, Vince is catapulted around the truck's front-end to the side door, his full weight suspended from a visible, vertical line that is attached to something several feet above the truck cab. The taut line from above even crushes the truck's side-view mirror under Vince's weight. This is the stuntman's safety cable, attached to an overhead boom mounted out-of-frame on top of the truck rig.
