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.

Revealing mistake: When the three Civics are hijacking the truck at the end you see inside Letty's Civic which is basically stock. When she goes off the road and rolls you see the inside is stripped and has a full rollcage. (01:24:20)

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 Leon is told to go and get Letty after she is pushed off the road by the lorry, you can see skidmarks on the road from previous takes. (01:21:10)


Revealing mistake: In the race with the four cars in the beginning, if you look inside Ja Rule's car you can see it's not him. (00:18:35)

Revealing mistake: In the first race, Brian is going at 140 Mph but his hood clip cable is straight in the air and is not moving. (00:19:25)

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.

Charles Austin Miller

Revealing mistake: Just as the lorry and Civics approach the roadworks there are skid marks on the road from previous takes. (00:02:30)


Revealing mistake: Just as the hijackers gain control of the first lorry there is one shot where you can see down the length of the passenger side of the lorry and the rear doors are open and pinned back. (00:02:15)


Revealing mistake: When Brian's car explodes after being shot up you can see the air cannon when the car goes up in the air.

Continuity mistake: In the opening hijack scene, the semi obviously has two sets of rear wheels on the trailer, but when it comes to the scene where the black Honda is under the trailer, there is only one set of rear wheels. (00:01:11)

Question: Jessie is using a car design program from the Supra. Does anyone know either what the program is or where to get it?


Chosen answer: It's not a real program, just some CGI. As well as when the pictures of "what it could look like" show up. Those are existing pictures of the car.
