Factual error: During the first tunnel sequence, all the cars travel very far into the mountains, turn lots of corners, yet not only is Gisele still able to speak to them over the radios, their GPS still works. GPS signals invariably need a clear 'sight' of the sky and can penetrate light cover, but most certainly not that depth and cover.

Continuity mistake: During the final chase just before everyone goes into the tunnels, Dom's Charger gets a glancing hit on its back right-hand corner, and you can see the panel damage, but later the damage disappears.

Continuity mistake: Dom smashes his Charger into the side of the silver Chevrolet 4x4 and damages the front of the car, yet in all following shots, the damage has gone.

Continuity mistake: When Vin Diesel sits at the dinner table to eat Chinese take out food, his screen sister asks him to pray before eating. Vin Diesel takes a gulp of the beer, which starts to foam up and spill. Next shot during prayer, there is no foam on the beer.

Continuity mistake: When Dom slams his black Buick Grand National into the side of the Petroleum tanker to get the coupling to break, the entire side of the car is stoved in, and the rear axle is seriously bent as evidenced by the angle of the back wheel. All subsequent shots, however, show the wheel intact and the damage to the side as slight denting.

Visible crew/equipment: When Brian at the end says "don't make me laugh", if you look at the chrome bumper of the green Torino he's leaning on, you can see a member of the crew moving. It's not Toretto as he's on the other side of Brian, and it's not any of the Police as evidenced by the following shot that still shows them to be far away.

Continuity mistake: The tractor trailer rams the rear of the Buick twice. Just before the second impact, we can see the rear bumper of the Buick is hanging well below its normal location and the sides of the car show crumpled damage. Moments later, the car spins around alongside the trailer and the rear of the car is undamaged.

Character mistake: Paul Walker is told of a 240SX with an illegal mod. You then see it is an S15. There was never an S15 240SX. It is a Japanese spec 200SX, chassis code S15.

Other mistake: Near the beginning of the movie, Vin Diesel kicks open a guy's door and you hear Marcus Fenix from Gears of War. When the camera pans to the TV for a split second, Marcus is not seen anywhere.

Add time

Factual error: During the final chase across the desert, Dom fires at several cars, shooting out their tyres, several of those cars then stop dead and the back ends of the those cars lift up and flip over. Those cars might lose control, but it wouldn't cause the back ends of the cars to defy gravity in such a way unless they actually hit something, which they never do.

Continuity mistake: After the theft of the tankers, Dom and his gang attend a party where Dom tells Letty that he wants her to quit because it's too dangerous. Watch Letty's right shoulder as it is alternatively bare and covered by her white blouse.

00:10:25

ployp

Factual error: When the tanker trailers are separated from each other, the trailer brakes would apply, causing the trailers to skid and/or stop. No one hooks up air lines on the pickups to prevent this from happening.

00:01:00 - 00:03:00

rswarrior

Continuity mistake: When Brian is telling Mia why he let Dominic go in the first movie, Mia's necklace goes from over her shirt (on her right shoulder) to under the shirt and on her neck correctly.

01:09:30

Continuity mistake: When Brian and the runner fall onto the car, they fall in such a way that their heads are towards the rear of the car. When we see them "inside" the car, their heads are by the steering wheel.

Continuity mistake: The left side of the spoiler on Brian's car is broken when "Ghetto Smurf's" orange car rolls off the bridge. However a few seconds later when Brian drifts through the final turn the spoiler is fixed before being broken again in the next shot.

00:42:45

Continuity mistake: Moments before Letty leaps off the trailer onto the hood of the Buick, a quick shot (just as Dom begins to say "You gotta jump!") shows the hood is already damaged from a previous attempt of this same stunt, despite all the preceding shots showing no such damage.

00:05:35

johnrosa

Factual error: Dom removes the hose from his nitrous oxide cylinder to fill his car with the gas and then pushes in his cigarette lighter. The fact is that nitrous oxide is not actually flammable on its own. Nitrous oxide is an oxidiser that contains a higher oxygen content than air. This is why it is pumped into engines so that more fuel can also be added to create a stronger explosion. Filling a car with nitrous oxide would not make it explode. You could put a lighter in the car surrounded by the gas and it just mean that the flame would burn brighter - not create an explosion radius of about 5 metres. It is not explosive when introduced to heat. The only way this is true is if the bottle itself was heated up to explosion levels - would be a few hundred degrees as they are pressure tested to significant levels.

Factual error: The animation depicting a car engine at the end of the movie is incorrect. The animation shows a combustion event each time the cylinder reaches TDC (top dead center). A four cycle engine only has one combustion event for every two cycles of the piston.

01:35:30

Continuity mistake: During the start of the chase in the grey Subaru Impreza, its sidelights vary on and off.

GalahadFairlight

Factual error: There's no way the pickup trucks could haul the stolen tanker trailers, even as modified as the pickup trucks are. The gas engines they are using don't have the necessary torque to haul the probably 30,000 pounds the full trailers weigh, and the trucks do not show a heavy enough suspension to haul the weight either. Besides, no one hooks up the airlines necessary to release the trailer brakes.

00:01:00 - 00:04:00

rswarrior

Factual error: During the first theft of the tankers, the pickups backing up to the tanks throw an A-frame over the pintle hitches to steal the trailers. Aside from the fact that it is extremely difficult to hook up that type of hitch, even when stationary, there is a closure over the hook that locks the eye of the A frame in place to prevent it from popping out of the hook. It would be impossible to throw the eye over the hook on a normal hitch that way, and the close up shots of the hitch show the top closure missing. If it's missing, the eye would pop out of the hook either braking, hitting a bump or accelerating.

00:02:00 - 00:05:00

rswarrior

Plot hole: Throughout the first half of the movie the focus is to locate and find David Park. It is believed this will lead them to Bragga and they can arrest him. However, later in the movie it is revealed that Letty was working with the FBI and was killed running drugs for Bragga. This means that the whole storyline to find Park was useless because they already knew how to get people inside.

00:18:55

Revealing mistake: Just after the Buick spins around to knock the trailer loose, we see the Buick speeding away backwards alongside the truck. If you look carefully you can see the REAR tires are steering, not the fronts. This car was modified with the body mounted backwards on the chassis because the transmission only has one reverse gear, so to get the speed and handling needed, the car had to be going 'forward' with a 'backward' body.

00:05:30

johnrosa

Continuity mistake: When Dom steers into the path of the tractor-trailer to slow it down, the actual swerving of the Buick occurs immediately in front of the tractor, just a few feet ahead of it. As the Buick stops wiggling in the next shot, we can see the tractor is far behind the Buick instantly.

00:01:30

johnrosa

Revealing mistake: When Dom and Brian are racing for the job, there is one point where Brian is seen skidding around a corner. There are already skid marks in the exact place Brian skids.

Factual error: When Dom emerges from the tunnel driving F-Bomb, he downshifts and presumably hits the throttle, causing the car's front end to lift. The car is on dirt and wearing street tires. It's not physically possible for the car to get the traction required to transfer whatever amount of horsepower we're expected to believe the car has to the ground, so that the front will lift. The only reaction the car would have had was to spin the rear tires wildly, kicking up more dirt and likely causing the car to swerve 'furiously'.

Continuity mistake: When Phoenix gets Braga out the Subaru at the end, the 2 cars are close together. Dom then appears and crashes into the Subaru, which doesn't move. When the cops show up, the distance between Phoenix's car and the Subaru has increased massively.

Revealing mistake: At the end when we see all the police arrive, there are tyre marks in the sand where they stopped in previous takes.

01:33:15

Continuity mistake: During the first tunnel sequence we see there are no lights in the tunnel. There is one shot, from the side, of all the cars going past right to left. When the yellow car goes past, a light is reflected in the paint.

00:56:00

Continuity mistake: When we see Brian running across the roof, his tie is over his shoulder. Camera cuts to a view from behind and the tie is not visible.

00:11:50

Continuity mistake: When Letty says to Dom they will work something out, her hands are on his face. Camera cuts and they're on his neck.

00:10:20

Continuity mistake: We see the last fuel tanker split from the lorry and it then explodes on its way down the road. However, just a couple of seconds later, the tractor unit and other tanker are a lot further on.

00:06:20

A Demon Premium member

Revealing mistake: When the tanker first rams Dom, if you look at the background outside the car it is barely moving. Not even close to the speed we see them traveling at.

00:03:40

A Demon Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Dom and the woman are talking about going after Braga, her hair is billowing in some shots and not in others. These are instant cuts.

01:20:35

Continuity mistake: When Brian and Dom are fighting, Dom throws Brian into a table of objects that fall around them. Camera changes and they have disappeared.

01:00:00

Continuity mistake: Brian's number plate gets shot off at the end in the desert. However it reappears in a couple of shots in the tunnels.

01:28:00

Visible crew/equipment: When Brian steals the Humvee, and stops for Dom to get it, there is a camera very prominently reflected in it.

01:01:50

Continuity mistake: When the girl is asking for Dom's number at the end of the first race her hair is in her jacket in some shots and not in others.

00:43:00

Continuity mistake: Dom lets go of David Park and Brian rushes forward to grab him. Dom vanishes instantly, for Brian to get past him.

00:29:50

Visible crew/equipment: After Brian transfers Mia in the FBI building, there is a shot of a red car with chrome bumpers. In the bumper you can see a cameraman walking forwards with the camera.

00:24:15

A Demon Premium member

Revealing mistake: When Dom and Letty get out the car at the crash scene, there is a light reflected in the paintwork quite low. When the camera pans out you can see it's not the moon due to its position, and there is no other light source around that could cause the light to be reflected so low on the car.

00:19:15

A Demon Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Mia hugs Dom in the garage, her hands keep changing position and grasp on Dom's shoulder.

00:16:50

A Demon Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the truck driver shoots at Dom at the start, we see his window smash in on him. Camera changes and it smashes again, but this time it smashes out, on to the road.

00:03:50

A Demon Premium member

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Dom says "T, you're up," a camera moves across Han's truck and up to the window. When it moves the shadow of the camera can be seen on the orange paint, moving.

00:03:00

A Demon Premium member

Visible crew/equipment: When Han does the handbrake turn right at the start, you can see the camera car reflected in the chrome bumper in the closeup. Slo-mo helps but is not required. There are also skid marks from previous takes.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene Mia is driving an NSX. The aerial disappears and reappears throughout this scene.

01:34:00

exovolt

Continuity mistake: When Dom crushes Phoenix between the Camaro and Impreza, the hood of the Camaro is badly damaged and denting up. In every shot afterwards, the Camaro is just fine.
