Fast & Furious 8

New this week Continuity mistake: When the red Toyota starts up and rams the taxi in the New York scene the front off-side light cover pops off. In the next shot when it pulls away the light is repaired and the damage on the front is less, like brand new.

Factual error: Throughout the "Manhattan" race scenes, it is obvious that the location is nowhere near New York. The wide two-way streets, west coast-style traffic signals, street furniture, and architecture look nothing like Manhattan.

Deliberate mistake: The coordinates listed for Hobbs' soccer game (34.1381N, 118.3534W) at the beginning are not actually a wooded suburban area with a recreational field, but are in fact the longitude and latitude for the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park in Los Angeles.

Plot hole: Using an EMP to disable the security at the base would render anything electrical useless, computers, cars, cameras, anything with a micro chip in it. Firing a EMP directly under something you want to steal like a submarine is completely stupid - Cypher would know this.

Plot hole: The nuclear codes are stolen and the Russian guy holding them was let go by Dom. He would contact his government to let them know and the codes changed. Cypher would also know this so her plan is flawed.

Suggested correction: Russia lost a number nuclear weaponry to Russian militants. They would be resistive to government request to deactivate those weapons.

Factual error: The Akula class submarine is an attack class submarine, not an SSBN (Missile Carrier).

Factual error: At the end of the film where the gang are trying to outrun the submarine, it should be noted that submarines cannot travel much faster than about 40mph when submerged, let alone above water/icebreaking. Yet it is shown at least keeping pace with the Fast and Furious heroes.

Suggested correction: It's also likely the cars wouldn't be going much faster over rough ice and snow. Look what happened when Roman first hit the ice in the Lamborghini because he was going too fast.

Factual error: Roman is completely submerged in ice cold water and is trapped in his car when pulled out, he would be suffering from hypothermia by the end of the chase but is completely unaffected by it.

Suggested correction: Roman was exposed to really cold water for only about a minute or so. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure that being exposed to low temperatures for only an insignificant amount of time would cause hypothermia immediately. Also, shortly after Roman is pulled out of the water, a pursuing army truck fires a missile that explodes in a ball of fire rather close to him, as well as at the end of the chase when the submarine explodes and the modified Dodge Ram that he is in drives into the fireball's path to protect Dominic Toretto. Wouldn't the heat discharged by these explosions suppress the effect of hypothermia on Roman?

Factual error: The Russian submarine is propped up on steel supports with its propeller well out of the water, so there is no way it could have been launched so quickly. Filling a dry dock and launching usually takes several hours.

Continuity mistake: Dom escapes his crew by crashing through a flower stall, leaving flowers and other debris on his car. Just seconds later we see his car again and it's pristine - it looks like it's just been washed.

Continuity mistake: While everybody hooks Dom the sun on the floor changes between shots.

Factual error: When the EMP goes off - apart from the obvious like the ridiculous shockwave...it causes the big gates to fall down. This is a unsecure security principal called "Failing open." I highly doubt that a secure military station would "fail open." Instead if would fail closed - ie if something went wrong then the defense systems would default to being closed and impenetrable.

Continuity mistake: Dom dives out of the burning car and lands on the concrete sidewalk, but then a different shot shows him getting up from the road. No way he could have reversed all that forwards momentum and rolled backwards.

Revealing mistake: On the ice the tank is firing - in slow motion we see empty shells are littering the area. The shells have crimped ends, revealing them to be blanks.

Continuity mistake: Prison scene - Jason Statham jumps over the first rail and lands with his right hand on ground. He would have rolled over his right shoulder, but when it cuts to him he rolls on his left shoulder. Next rail he jumps over and right when his feet hit the ground his bracelet is on his left wrist, but it's previously been on his right.

Other mistake: How did "Cipher" get in her car and drive off without replacing the fuel linkage and putting down the hood?

Suggested correction: You see her replace the fuel linkage and you don't see the car as it drives off so you can't say for definite if the hood was down.

Continuity mistake: As Dom escapes the grappling hooks, the cars get wrecked. He crawls out from his car and the silver briefcase is within arm's reach, right next to double yellow lines. Only problem is, in the earlier shot from above, he crashed nowhere near lines like that, and there was no briefcase there either.

Continuity mistake: When Dom is taking the panels off the car at the start, his cousin goes to take a sip of coke. Camera changes and his hand is down by his side.

Continuity mistake: When Cypher is explaining what brought her to Cuba, she is looking at Dom. Camera changes and now she is facing away from Dom.
