Like any Hollywood franchise, the Fast & Furious series has plenty of errors for fans to pick out. And we're not just talking about continuity errors or plot holes here, but actual scientific inaccuracies a lot of people wouldn't even notice at first glance. These are big, dumb action movies, after all, so does it really matter all that much? As long as people go home entertained, science can be flubbed in major ways.
Like that time in The Fate of the Furious where Charlize Theron's team of hackers took over dozens of cars at one time. Or when Dom Toretto used giant magnets to repel cars in F9. Or, going back to the beginning, how a Honda Civic can't actually fit under a standard semi-truck trailer. Get your fact-checking glasses on everyone, we're going through some of the big mistakes the Fast & Furious franchise has made.
