Simply put, the story of Fast and Furious is not in the order that the movies are released. A bit of this post is a little speculative since one of the movies is in pre-production, but the cast has already been confirmed. Obviously there are some spoilers below tying it all together. The first movie - The Fast and The Furious (2001), ends with Brian O'...

As per the Movie Mistakes factual errors listing this really couldn't have happened: During the first race a square plate on the floor falls off Brian's Eclipse. The Mitsubishi Eclipse is a unibody car; the frame and body are built as one solid piece, and it does not have floor pans. While some racers might put a steel plate in the interior as a ...

As you already know that the Chronology of Fast & Furious franchise is different from the release order but the reason for it is more complex than the chronology. Tokyo Drift has nothing to do with the first two films. Diesel was hoping to make more films in the Riddick franchise of sci-fi action pictures. To do that, though, he needed to get the rights ...

At the end of Fast 6 they show the same clip from Han dieing in Tokyo Drift, but you see Jason Statham get out of the car that hit Han's. So seven will take place with Dom going to Tokyo (assuming) since he shows up in the end of Tokyo drift

To the best of my knowledge, it's never stated outright that Harry is in some sort of trouble although it is strongly hinted at with the following dialogue: Harry: Brian, you're messing with my business. When Dominic drives, he's golden. Kids pour in. They want everything he has. Every performance part. They pay cash! Brian: What did Dominic say? ...

When the "good guy" team is preparing, they mention that they'll start the battle at the crack of dawn. Strategically it's good, because the bad guys will have morning sunlight in their faces, making it harder for them to see. IIRC they also mention that a storm will be rolling in early in the morning. So the battle starts just before sunrise, when it's ...

Tokyo Drift felt really out of place in the timeline. Nothing seemed to add up because it was assumed the events occurred either completely independent of Dom's realm, or perhaps directly after 2 Fast 2 Furious based on Dom's appearance at the end of the film. The writers did an amazing job re-introducing Han into the big picture by giving him a small yet ...

Accoring to this article from the BBC; Our best estimate after calculating plane speed, car speed and simultaneous action sequences is that the runway is 18.37 miles (29.6km) long. Which is still very long when you consider the longest paved runway in the world is the Qamdo Bamda airport in China, at around 3.5 miles (5.6km). The full article goes into ...

Cars before a certain year (1998) are not required to have drivers side air bags. And there is a loud majority of modders in car culture who believe air bags are more dangerous than life saving, and will remove airbags from a car in that respect. It's not unusual for a souped up car to lack air bags. From the Emergency Medical Journal: Airbags have been ...

I believe your talking about the following scene So essentially to improve performance: They lighten the car by removing a bunch of parts . Dom then brings a can of nitrous oxide Torreto adds the coke can ring and redirects the air intake tube (which he actually reattaches). DOM: Pull the vaccuum line and hold on. Old ...

They used Paul Walker's brothers, as explained in this article: To double for Walker, the production turned to his younger brothers Caleb and Cody, as well as actor John Brotherton (who also has a separate role in the film). Visual effects artists then replaced their faces with Paul Walker’s face — but occasionally, Brian O’Connor’s lines would be a ...

The Wiki on Fast 7 - Filming mentions (and shows an image of) one particular example at the end of the film. Paul's face is CGI'd over whoever's torso they used for that scene. It is vague on the matter of other scenes though, simply mentioning that they also used it in scenes newly written to support the concept of Brian 'retiring' from Dom's group1. ...

At the speeds with which they were travelling, and no restraints, they both would have been ejected through the front windshield, or at least been slammed into the wheel/dashboard. Imagine getting hit in the chest with a bowling ball fired at a speed of 25MPH. If you didn't break a rib, you would certainly have the wind knocked out of you or sustained ...

As long as this link works, you should be able to see that this is a four wheel steer car. At about 50 seconds in you can see the cant of the wheels, then at 52 you can see the tie rod end for the steer linkage. Enjoy. If the link does not work, I did a Google search for Fast and Furious 6 flip car specs and found it. EDIT:...

She actually remembers as she described. Yes truth. She said I remember everything. It came to me like a flood. If you see the lift scene in the tower, when they were dressed formally and they said Dominic: To see you dress like this, reminds me f something Letty: of what? Dominic: Old times Then there was a flash where Letty remembered ...

We find out in the movie that Shaw was sent to the Hospital to kill Letty on Braga's orders after Braga learns that Letty survived the encounter. Shaw knew where Letty came from (driving for Braga) and her skills (if she didn't have mad skills, she wouldn't be driving for Braga in the first place), so when he gets to the hospital and finds out she has ...

Unless the production crew had special permission for things, you have to remember that just because a movie is shown to take place somewhere, doesn't mean it's actually filmed there. There's a lot that can be done with special effects to compile different shots together to make them look like the location needed. Granted ...

Yes, it's likely for someone to walk away from a low speed crash. Assuming 25~35 MPH total, even a pedestrian to car hit, there's a significant possibility of walking away unharmed. State of Florida. In Florida in 1993 - 1996, 32,651 of the pedestrians in crashes were in single-vehicle crashes (91 percent). For 23,831 of those pedestrians (74 percent), ...

If I recall correctly, the car is a 1970s Dodge Charger which has no electronics to be affected by an EMP blast. It's perceived wisdom that modern cars rely extensively on electronics for ignition and control systems that could be adversely affected by an EMP burst. There is conflicting evidence/opinion on this though. Try this article for more ...

Basically...it just fell off (as strange as that may sound). It's covered in the script Elena nods and he (Hobbs) moves off, continuing the hunt for Toretto. When he's gone she NOTICES something shining in the dirt. Moving closer, we see it's LETTY's NECKLACE. It must have fallen off Dom when he saved her life We know that Dom didn't deliberately ...

Family The only code that Dom Toretto lives and swears by is family! He might be a thug and criminal by definition but his actions have always been motivated by his drive to care for his family. He feels this innate responsibility for the people he cares for. This extends not only to his actual family like Mia but also to his friends. As does he say in ...

Is this realistic at all? It does not seem possible Apparently, YES There's a long article at Vulture.com which goes into the physics and math but essentially (movie magic aside)... the actual "jump" is possible. The landing...probaly not so much. The Lykan HyperSport weighs a little over 3,000 pounds. (With the two actors in it, it would probably weigh ...

It's not really about bad editing/scripting, it's more about keeping the action moving and the audience entertained without having to get bogged down in explaining everything. If, after an action scene at night, our cuddly protagonists erect a tent and cook beans over an open fire before continuing more action scenes in daytime, audiences would get bored ...

A few reasons that this would be true: The cars built before the 1980s have relatively few electronics, and those that do don't have any major systems (such as braking, ignition, fuel injection, etc.) controlled by those electronics. Cars built before the 1980s also contain lots more metal and would work more effectively as a Farady cage and would make the ...

The most recognizable scene of CGI is the photo shown below of Walker's brother in as a body double and Paul's actual face on the body double. Viewers who pay careful attention will note that the majority of Walker’s unfinished scenes are completed using his brothers Caleb and Cody as doubles. When combined with CGI, carefully chosen camera angles ...

The rating system in the U.S. is very opaque. The raters' identities are kept secret and their decisions cannot be formally appealed. You should watch the documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated. A movie's rating may also be the result of some extended negotiation between the studio and the MPAA. Filmmakers will often shoot scenes that can later be cut in ...

So, why exactly did Toretto accept working for her in first place? Because she'd kidnapped Elena, an ex-lover of Dom's. Cipher says... I think I need to remind you why you chose to be here. This is when we find out about Elena being kidnapped...and that she has had a son that Dom knew nothing about. It's clear from the conversation between Dom & ...

If you try and force the north ends of two bar magnets together, a comfortable ending position looks sort of like this. The same ends of a magnet don't really like facing each other. This is what this scene reminded me of. They're two tough guys, both doing things the way they want to, but they're opposites, and they clash. Standing like this and ...

When Brian is "arrested" and taken back to the posh house that is being used by the FBI (Agent Bilkins) and Police (Sgt Tanner amoung others) to stage their operation, Harry comes up in conversation... Bilkins: You want time, buy the magazine. We don't have time. Just get me something I can use. Tanner: Is Harry cooperating? Brian: Like a guy ...
