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?
Question: Something I didn't quite understand: when Hobbs and his team learn of Reyes from getting the information of the owner of the car, Neves says that if there's anything illegal going on in Rio that Reyes is involved. Then later in the film when Dom goes to her place to get his necklace, they talk and she says "Reyes owns this favela now". It seemed as though she did not show her knowledge of Reyes to Hobbs and his team by her use of "If". So is that a character mistake or was she pretending?
Question: (SPOILERS) I'm just curious where the cavalcade of money came from. Brian and Mia hit Rio all but broke, which is why they agree to the train heist job. Dom arrives not long after, fresh out of his orange jump suit. Possibly he had a nice stash of cash he could pick up, but no mention is made of this. Then it starts. They've double-crossed the heist and are tearing the car apart in a fully equipped garage. Apparently they know Rio very well to find such a facility, but someone would still want payment/rent. Then they escape with nothing but their clothes and the chip, but end up in an apartment where they can casually plan and sip cold beer. They decide on the super-heist and immediately transfer to an apartment-condo with a million-dollar view. As the crew shows up, they must be bringing some major investment funds with them. A gigantic warehouse-factory for a base of operations. Loads of high end computer surveillance gear. Sure, they steal or win the cars, but they use tons of components to reinforce them. They order a duplicate top-of-the-line vault for practicing on! (Maybe Amazon waives the delivery fee on such a purchase). It just starts to feel that if they divvied up all the seed money, they'd find they really didn't need to commit the robbery.
Question: SPOILERS. We learn that when Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are driving across the bridge, the vault that they are dragging is empty. If this is so, why didn't they both just disconnect and run instead of Vin driving back and causing a huge pile-up? They had the money and dragging an empty vault didn't solve anything.Gavin Jackson
Question: I know this is just a movie, but I'm confused about how the whole jurisdiction subject is highlighted in the movie. In the scene where Hobbs tries to arrest Dom and co., they exchange words and Dom says "And your mistake is thinking you're in America". Earlier in the conversation and also earlier in film Hobbs basically says that when names of criminals come up, he hunts them down, but seems to indicate it doesn't matter where the arrest is made. There's never an indication Hobbs had a warrant to make an arrest in another country. The main characters also mention the "No extradition" policy in some countries. Does that play a part as well?
Question: Why did Dom and Brian decided to double cross the train heist in the first place? They are already on the run, what differences does it make when they found out the cars they're robbing has been seized by the DEA? Isn't it easier to just complete the job and get the money after the heist is done?
Question: At the end on the bridge when Dom is about to be shot, Brian appears as if out of thin air, behind Dom, car and all, gun in hand, and shoots the bad guy who had to have been staring right at him for like a good minute while Brian drove to Dom, parked the car, got out and aimed his gun. What am I missing?Stace Mann
Question: When Dom finds Vince with the chip, the conversation concludes with Vince basically saying how all of them have been negatively affected by everything that has happened and he sarcastically asks Dom where Letty is. How would he have found out about Letty if he was on the run since the events of the first film? Earlier in the film he tells Brian and Mia about his misfortunes and how he ended up in Rio.
Question: I have searched every where to find the answer to 2 questions with no luck. First being at the end, where is the house that Brian and Mia are living at? The second is how does Dom know Neves? When Dom goes to her house to get the necklace back it implies that they know each other but she hasn't been in any other F and F films and in addition Dom says later in the film "running ain't freedom you should know that."Brandon Smith
Question: A couple times throughout the film the phrase "I had to make the call" is used. It is first used by Dom at the beginning of the film directed towards Brian: "You had to make the call, huh?" and then towards the end of the film by Brian when the car chase ends and he saves Dom and says "I had to make the call." So my question is: what exactly were the calls that were made? I'm assuming the second one was Brian letting Hobbs know what was going on since he arrives seconds after Brian kills Zizi.
Question: I find myself confused about the money. The chip from the GT40 contains the information about Reyes' money and cash houses and that there is 100 million dollars spread throughout 10 cash houses. That would mean that there's 10 million in each house. The group decides to split it 9 ways since there's 9 of them (before counting Vince which makes 10). They burn the money from one cash house so wouldn't that mean there's only 90 million dollars left that Reyes' had locked away in the safe and put into the police station to split amongst 10 people?
