Corrected entry: During the car chase in London Brian and his team get their cars shot up, but in the following chase the cars show no damage.

Correction: The cars that are shot up are just Han and Giselle's cars. Brian, Roman, and Tej's cars do not get damaged by the bullets.

Corrected entry: 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.

Correction: When Shaw and his team are locked away, Tej, along with the rest of Dom's team, did not know that Mia was kidnapped by Shaw until Shaw informed them. It would have been appropriate for Tej to jam the cellular transmissions after they let Shaw go.

Corrected entry: When Brian lands after he jumps the bridge, the Escort is pretty badly damaged. In the rest of the chase, the car is fine. (01:28:00)


Correction: The Ford Escort does get damaged, but not "pretty badly damaged." When the car lands in the opposite lane, one of its headlight rims falls off and its right door hangs open until Brian closes it. In the later scenes of the tank chase, I'm sure it would be hard to tell if the car is visibly damaged, because Brian closed the door and a missing headlight rim isn't really noticeable. "Pretty badly damaged" is an over-exaggeration.

Corrected entry: When the crew is chasing after Shaw and his gang. Shaw's goons plant bombs on their cars. The bomb on Brian's car is in a location that technically Brian wouldn't have even known that it was there. If this bomb was somewhere he couldn't see it, then Brian wouldn't have been able to clip the pole to make it fall off. (00:26:00)


Correction: If something hard and metallic is shot at and hits your car, you'll definitely hear it. Brian could see it coming and then heard it hit, so he had a decent guess where it was and just got lucky when he clipped it off.


Corrected entry: Brian compares Shaw's cars to "something you'd hear at Le Mans, a turbo diesel." However, a turbo-diesel is simply a turbocharged diesel engine, fairly popular (and common) in Europe like its non-charged counterpart, due to much better gas mileage and lower price of diesel fuel. On the other hand, WEC (World endurance championship, under which Le Mans 24 belongs) allows lot of variability in engine design. TDI engine was only used by Audi teams and for a short time, by Peugeot. Others used petrol turbo or NA engines.


Correction: Even according to the wording of this mistake, Brian is technically correct. What's more, of the preceding 7 years to this movie, Audi won Le Mans 6 times with turbo diesel engines, so it's not strange to put some focus on that.


Corrected entry: The Underground fight was apparently filmed in Aldwych Tube station, which is unused. When Letty jumps on the train the underground sign has "ras" at the end, probably saying "St. Pancras." When Hobbs heads to the CCTV office, he claims they got attacked in Waterloo Station.

Correction: Letty and Rome and Han are at 2 different stations. Watch closely and you see Roman and Han run past a sign saying Waterloo.

Corrected entry: In the railway station fight scene, Riley fights Letty and tries to handcuff her. None of Hobbs' team is watching. As we find out later in the film, Riley is on Shaw's team. The fight isn't for the benefit of any other character, the fight between those two characters doesn't take the plot forward - actually arresting someone from her own team is counter productive, and might even piss Shaw off. (00:45:00 - 00:47:55)

Uri Raz

Correction: It is entirely possible that Riley is fighting Letty to a) to continue her charade of being on Hobb's team just in case anyone's watching, b) because she legitimately hates Letty and is using this as an excuse to fight her. or c) because Shaw knows that Letty has become a liability, and outlived her usefulness. We know Shaw isn't above killing subordinates once they have outlived their purpose to him.

Corrected entry: In the tank scene, after Roman hooks up his broken Mustang/Shelby and gets it crushed, Brian pushes it to the opposite lane when the long bridge starts. A pillar is seen and the rope has to hit the pillar, because the tank and the car are on the two lanes around it, however, they pass it and the rope is still there attaching the two vehicles.

Christian Magbitang

Correction: Brian hits the Mustang/Shelby over the guard rail before the pillar.

Corrected entry: At the start of the movie when Brian and Dom are racing in both the Dodge Challenger and Nissan Skyline they are seen moving the shifter with their hands. They would have no need to do this as the challenger is an automatic and Nissan Skyline has shift paddles. (00:01:00)

Correction: Both the Challenger and the GT-R can be shifted into manual mode by using the gear selector as shown in the opening scene. However, the GTR can only change gear manually using the paddles not the gear selector. The Challenger can be shifted by either the gear selector or by paddles near the steering wheel.

Corrected entry: Hours after the London chase Shaw has acquired detailed police files on Dom's team, despite not seeing their faces.

Correction: Riley could have given them information, as she was working for them.

Corrected entry: At the end when Dom says "ride or die" we see a close up of him changing gear, and the engine makes the sound of changing gear, but he does not change, as the gear stick is already at the bottom.

Correction: Actually this is a feature of the Dodge Charger in Auto-Stick mode; he pulls the stick towards him, properly shifting.

Corrected entry: When Dom and Letty are talking about how she got her scars, Dom says they met when she was 15. In the first movie Mia states that she showed up in his life when she was 10. (01:10:50)


Correction: Actually, in the first movie Mia tells Brian that Letty lived down the block and was always interested in Dom. However, Dom was not interested in Letty until she turned 16. That's when she caught his attention, hence he did not know or acknowledge her until them.

Corrected entry: When Letty and Dom are sliding around Picadilly Circus, right after the slow motion, Letty changes gear. In order to do this, she clutches and shifts. But if you look closely, there are only two pedals: her Interceptor is an automatic. The pedal she actually hits, is the brake. Push the brake that hard during a high-speed drift in an old car like that and it will spin out of control in a massive cloud of smoke.


Correction: Pushing the brake is one way of maintaining a drift and correcting steering when the steering wheel is already at its' sharpest angle in an automatic equipped car.


Corrected entry: When Dom removes the bullet from his chest that Lotty fired into him, it's a long pointed rifle projectile, instead of a short stubby pistol projectile.

Correction: The description Brian gives of the gun is very accurate: it is a Soviet/Russian PSM and that does use very pointy bullets (5.45×18mm), like the one Dom pulls from his shoulder.


Corrected entry: At the end, we see that Han was killed. The driver who knocked Han's car walked to him and set his car on fire. However, in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, where this accident is first seen, you will notice that Sean hurries to see Han as soon as he had the accident, and he would have seen if a man had set the fire on purpose.

Correction: Sean was at least a block away from Han's car, as he was involved in his own accident moments before. There would have been time enough for Statham to get out of the car and leave before Sean got close enough to see Han. And Sean didn't see Han until he car was already on fire, but before it exploded, so it's another indication Statham had already left.


Corrected entry: The runway on the airbase for the finale of the movie has to be 10 miles or longer, given how long the chase goes on for. The longest runway in the world is much less than 4 miles long.

Correction: It's time compression. This technique is common, especially in action movies, and requires suspension of disbelief. All of the action is occurring at the same time, all of the exterior fights, all of the interior fights, and the focus on different characters is to be happening at the same time. Since there are about four different stories occurring at once, we can safely divide the time involved in the scene by four, making it about three minutes of simultaneous action. People have calculated the runway using straight time would have been over 28 miles long, but if you're going to a Fast and Furious movie for scientific accuracy, you're going to be massively disappointed.


It's not just the same moments from different character's points of view, it's also the same moments from different angles (like a ground view, side view, then a top/aerial view, close-up/character view, etc - all of which are depicting the same sequence of time) which is also a fairly common cinematic technique.

Corrected entry: The commander of the Army base seems surprised that the bad guys stole a tank in an attempt to secure the computer chip. However he never explains why the tank was in the convoy in the first place or why such a massive truck would be used to transport a small handheld case.


Correction: The convoy was a regularly scheduled convoy that the bad guys infiltrated in order to steal the chip. The reasoning was that if the chip was held by by what appeared to be a random soldier (the army brass not realizing they were compromised) in the convoy, the people after the chip would have a harder time finding it if it was surrounded by the convoy. They basically used an existing planned convoy for transport, rather than sending a single operative, thinking there would be safety in numbers. That's why the tank was in the convoy. He wasn't so much surprised there was a tank in the convoy, but that it was stolen.
