Continuity mistake: During the vault chase scene, the vault spins on two separate occasions, tangling the lines in the process. The first time, it is being dragged out of the police station and the second when it destroys half a bank. The lines could not have been untangled, because both times they guys were turning to the right and the vault spins in the same direction. (01:40:30)

Continuity mistake: When the mini-gun starts shooting at Dom on the bridge, at first we get a shot of a line of bullets hitting the door. In the next shot, the door is fine and the first barrage of bullets hit the bonnet. (01:47:45)

Continuity mistake: As the cars are being stolen from the train car, they're violently dropped onto the ground, yet they don't have a scratch on them. The best example is the vintage Corvette that Vin Diesel drives out of the train car. The car falls at least 6 feet, landing on the front left corner of the bumper, yet seconds later, the car is in perfect condition. (00:14:40)

Continuity mistake: Almost all the cars aren't with Brazilian plates. The plates here are always XXX- Where X are letters and numbers.

Continuity mistake: When Dom and the gang burn all the money, they smash one guy pretty good, broken nose and cuts over his face. When this guy explains what happened to Reyes, there are no marks on his face. (00:49:30)

Continuity mistake: On the train Mia is reading a magazine, Brian takes it off her and she puts her hand on her her chin and keeps it there, in shot, until the camera changes to a closeup of her face. When we see the closeup of her face, her hand is not there. (00:08:00)

Continuity mistake: The hole in the plastic which is around the vault Han ordered changes after Tej says "You got a 100 million dollars in a safe, are you going to put somebody else's handprint on it?" This is easiest to spot around the palm scanner: at first, it is completely free, but after that line, the plastic suddenly hangs in front of it. (01:05:40)

Continuity mistake: There is one point during the vault scene where a cop is leaning out the passenger window shooting at Brian and Dom while driving down the pavement. However when that car crashes just 2 seconds later, he's not in the window, which has been wound up. (01:47:50)

Continuity mistake: When O'Connor blocks the bus on the two-lane highway with his vehicle, the bus swerves around his car towards the shoulder, clips the right rear of the car, and breaks the vehicle's rear window. In the next shot, the bus reverses angles, flips over the left rear of O'Connor's car nearest the center line, becomes airborne, and then rolls over and over down the center of the highway. If it had continued on its initial trajectory, it would have crushed his vehicle and continued onto the shoulder. (00:01:45)

Continuity mistake: In the first film, Vince gets his arm caught up in steel wire while hijacking a lorry. We then see he has scars up his arm. However when we first see Vince in this film the scars are no longer present. They then show up again inside the house.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hobbs confronts Dominic for the first time at the location where all of the drivers go to race, Hobbs and everyone he is with aim their guns towards Dominic. Officer Neves pulls her gun out as well but when the shot shows the whole group and Dominic says "This is Brazil!", Officer Neves has both of her hands at her sides. Right before it cuts back to her, you can see her start to reach for her gun. But the next shot shows her holding her gun out already, not just pulling it out. (01:11:00)

More trivia for Fast Five

Question: When Hobbs realizes that Dom and Brian left him with an empty vault, Hobbs has a flashback of Tego and Rico loading the real vault onto a truck. My question: was that really a flashback (did he really see it take place and forget?) or was it like Dom's image of Letty's death when he and Mia are at the crash site in Fast Four and not 100% accurate, since he didn't know what Letty's killer looked like yet?

Answer: Hobbs doesn't see that scene, though he probably does guess part of what happened - ie. that they swapped the vaults. The scene is played as a reveal for us, the audience, to show us how the vault that is supposed to be full of money is now suddenly empty.
