Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Hawk and his son are walking to the final match, the audio used for his son is from the speech he gave his Father in the scene before. He could be heard saying, "You weren't talking about me, you were talking about you," although the audio is lowered.

Character error 

In the beginning, when Hawk pulls his truck up to the gate at the military school, the gateman says "deliveries are in back." Hawk is driving a semi without any delivery trailer attached.

Continuity 

When Mike gets kidnapped by his grandfather's thugs, they speed away in a white pickup truck. Hawk gets in his semi and instantly catches up to them. There's no way he would have gotten the rig up to speed that quickly. Also, you can hear Mike still yelling "Dad" as if he is close by, even though the white pickup is already a half mile down the road.
