Fast & Furious 6

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.

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. (00:19:50)

Suggested correction: That's exactly the problem that Shaw is referring to, a member of his team installed the incorrect plug which caused a problem, i.e. a Spark Plug and not a Glow Plug (a simple thing, causing the problem), along with the 'good' being simple minded and causing the rest of Shaw's team a problem.

The glow plug isn't what causes combustion in a diesel like how a sparkplug does for gas. The wiring harness for a spark plug vs a glow plug is completely different and they aren't interchangeable. You can't just accidentally put a spark plug in a diesel, it doesn't work like that.

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. (01:22:35 - 01:23:55)

Trivia: When Brian goes undercover as a prison inmate to talk to Braga, his fake name is T. Bridges. Bridges is the real last name of Ludacris who plays Tej, and T is the first initial of Tyrese Gibson who plays Roman. (00:55:25)

Trivia: The tube train in this film is the same one as in V for Vendetta. Both scenes were filmed at Aldwych, where a fully operational train is kept for training and filming.

Roman Pearce: Better hide your baby oil.
Luke Hobbs: Better hide that big-ass forehead.

Tej Parker: It's all between you and the car you build. It's a bond, it's a commitment.
Hobbs: Sounds like a marriage.
Tej Parker: Yeah, but with cars, when you trade up they don't take half your shit.

Letty Ortiz: Klaus, aren't you team muscle? Don't make me go over there and make you team pussy.

Question: Towards the end when the briefcase has been recovered and Hobbs asks what the reward should be, Dom replies "1327." What do these numbers refer to? Shaw's former hideout? Or an amnesty law code or something?

mNemesis

Chosen answer: It's the house number of Dom's old house in Los Angeles, from the first film. Hobbs says "name your price", so I guess Dom was asking him to buy his old house back (the gang are having a BBQ there in the next scene).

Question: Han's death, seen in Tokyo Drift, is seen here, tying up the threads and the jumping timeline leading into Furious 7. Was it always an option to re-feature that down the line to unite all the movies, or as more sequels were made did the makers just realise there was an opportunity to make use of the event?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: The most logical answer would be that quite a lot of people liked the character Han. Since he dies at the end of "Tokyo Drift" the filmmakers probably came up with the idea of having the movie take place after all the other ones, so as to feature Han in more sequels.

Chosen answer: All the flashbacks are archive footage.
