Trivia

There are some notable touches that respect Michael Bay's original cinematography. The rising 360 degree shot after the roof fight is reminiscent of the near-miss with the cab in Bad Boys (1995), and the undertow shot of the airplane flying over the Miami sign is also among them. See more »

Goofs

The vehicle that Mike and Marcus get in at the nightclub is red but changes to black and back to red throughout the chase. See more »

Quotes

I like them all, but for 3 a was a bit scared they would be a little to old for this. Well not just yet. But let this be the last. And we have a perfect ending. Saw it in de cinema, really great
