Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

60 mistakes

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene on the bridge involving the tank, two cars (silver Toyota Corolla hatchback, licence NE34 12 and a black VW Bora, licence NU67 67) appear during many shots, often travelling in different directions on the bridge and either ahead or behind the chase.

Continuity mistake: During the runway scene, Shaw's vehicle is seen fitted with HID type headlights (bluish tinge). Yet during the sweeping wide angle shots and when Shaw drives into the cargo plane, the lights are a standard yellow.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire movie, Hobbs has a goatee. But when Hobbs is driving and talking on the phone to Tej, his goatee is gone. In Hobbs' next scene, the goatee is suddenly back again.

Other mistake: Dom drives his Dodge Charger out of the Antonov's cargo hold - which is filled with, well, cargo - through the nose of the plane which was already on fire while he was still in it - and yet there isn't a single dent on his car before he loses control and rolls it.

Continuity mistake: When Dom runs against Letty the space between the cars and the girl who starts the race changes between shots.

Factual error: Brian mentions that the engines in Shaw's flipcars sound like the engines you hear at Le Mans, turbo diesels. These cars have over 500 horsepower and are capable of reaching speeds upwards of 250 miles an hour. They also weigh less than one ton. Shaw's cars seem to meet all these demands: massive power and torque, no body fat and very fast. But here is also a problem: Dom is easily able to keep up in a factory-tuned BMW, which would be nearly twice as heavy, and Hobbs is able to keep up in his "four-wheeled tank", which would be thrice the weight, with even less power. There is no way that an extremely good driver like Shaw wouldn't be able to lose them with such an advantage in terms of power to weight ratios.

Character mistake: Tej mentions that the BMWs they used were factory-line, ie. unmodified. Hobbs then says that they were twin-turbo V8s "spitting out 560 ponies". The BMW M5s they have are E60 models (2005-2010) powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V10, producing 507 horsepower.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the cable is shot into the sides of the cliffs to stop the convoy, there are no civilians in the area. As soon as the convoy hits the cable and stops, you can see two normal cars just feet away from it. Not only were the cars never there before, but they would have also gotten stopped by the cable.

Continuity mistake: When Brian lands after he jumps the bridge, the Escort is pretty badly damaged. In the rest of the chase, the car is fine.

Continuity mistake: Han's Charger gets pretty badly damaged during the chase over the runway - especially when he his up against the jeep with Shaw's guys in it. Yet at the end of the chase, it doesn't even have so much as a scratch.

Continuity mistake: When Riley and Gisele are about to talk with the blonde guy who makes the gadget for Shaw, Riley moves her hands between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Roman is fighting the guy on the bonnet of Shaw's Land Rover, Tej signals him to get back on his Mercedes jeep. When Roman does this, the jeeps are pressed up against one another. Then Tej rams Shaw's Land Rover into the jetwash of the plane. Right before he does this, suddenly a massive gap has appeared between the cars.

Factual error: In the scene where Shaw is talking to a goon while fixing his car he states the simplest things cause the most problems while holding a spark plug. We know this can't be right as Brian concludes the car is a turbo diesel like a Le Mans car, which would actually use a glow plug and not a spark plug.

Factual error: When Mia changes gear to pull the Antonov down, she moves the gear lever straight down, then straight up again, meaning she would end up in the same gear.

Revealing mistake: The truck Roman and Tej are suspended in during the runway scene has no prop shaft attached (without it, the truck won't be able to drive at all). When you look at the bottom of the truck while it's in the air, you can see where the shaft was supposed to be attached to the rear differential.

Revealing mistake: After the tank runs over one of the army jeeps in the crash you can see a dummy.

Continuity mistake: During Brian's jump over the bridge debris, the Ford leans forward pretty far and is still rolling forward by the time the shot cuts. When he touches down, the angle of the car is a lot less steep.

Friso94

Factual error: When the Mercedes jeep hits the wall at the end of the plane, Shaw goes straight through the windshield and falls to his death in a cloud of shards. Windshields on modern cars, like that jeep, are made out of laminated glass, layers of glass and plastic, precisely designed to prevent shattering into those deadly daggers during an accident and kill the unlucky guy in front of it.

Plot hole: Shaw is let go from custody with the chip because he has Mia hostage. After he's released, he tries to call his guy to finish her off anyway, but can't, because Tej has blocked all cellular transmissions. No reason why Tej couldn't do that while they had Shaw and his men captured and handcuffed.

Continuity mistake: When Shaw orders the driver to take the tank to the other side, the tank swerves to the left and just as the camera changes you can see the tracks stop. In the next shot though it is still traveling at speed.
