Corrected entry: At the end when the bullet train gets blown up, Ice Cube Jumps off into the water about 10 seconds before it gets blown up. He is obviously way behind the train after it gets hit seeing as how the train was going over 200 mph, but when the train is falling, it's somehow right behind him.
Corrected entry: When Ice Cube is on the carrier, he launches a tank at a very high speed towards another tank and destroys them both. He attach's the tank to one of those fighter jet launchers, but in reality the tank wouldn't be able to go that fast. The gears would prevent such a speed from being attained.
Corrected entry: Stone hooks the tank up to a catapult shuttle, and launches it. If it was actually the Independence (CVA-62), the cats use steam power, and if it was the Hornet (CVS-12) the cats were hydraulic. In neither case would the cats have been charged while the vessel is in port.
Corrected entry: At one point chasing the train the speedo in the Cobra shows Stone running 140-160 and he tells Lola he hit 220-225 (meaning miles per hour). If this is correct the Blackhawk would never have caught up to or kept up with the train given the lead time between X taking off and the Blackhawk taking off. The official specs on the UH-60 Blackhawk claim a top speed of 184 miles/hour.EMTurbo
Corrected entry: No current tank existing in the world can be cut open with a portable hacksaw, as Ice Cube does in the streets towards the end. They're designed specifically for wood cutting; the saw would destroy itself before it even chipped paint. Furthermore it was a perfectly circular hole, unachievable with a tool that can only cut straight lines.
Zeke: The fate of the free world is in the hands of a bunch of hustlers and thieves.
Agent Steele: So why should tonight be any different?
Trivia: Rob Cohen (director of the first film) and Vin Diesel (star of the first film) had both signed on to work on this sequel. Cohen had even begun early work on the project, after having very much enjoyed working on the first film. However, due to time constraints and scheduling conflicts with other projects, both had to drop out of their respective roles, and Diesel Xander was unceremoniously "killed off." Both Diesel and Cohen were unsatisfied with this film, with Diesel in particular expressing an interest to return. Diesel later brought the series back with 2017's "xXx: Return of Xander Cage."
