In one argument between Hobbs and Shaw, Dwayne Johnson decided to adlib and came up with a line about knocking Shaw's teeth so far down his throat, he'd need to stick a toothbrush up his ass to brush them. Jason Statham was so amused by the adlib that he broke character and started laughing. That's the take that was used in the film. See more »
In the opening scenes when Hobbs is driving through Los Angeles on a motorcycle, he is not wearing a helmet. California's strictly enforced helmet law became effective on January 1, 1992. As a career law officer, he would know of the helmet law. See more »
UK Police Leader:
All right, touchdown in two. Rules of engagement: electric rounds only. MI6 wants him alive for questioning. The target's in a metal coffer. Every agency and terror cell is looking for it.

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?
That is a bit what the two stars are supposed to be. Though don't ask me who is who - if you insist I'd say Statham is the unstoppable force and Dwayne the immovable object. Which would make sense, since he is the Rock ... Ok kidding aside now, we know this unlikely team made waves in the last Fast and Furious movie andwas the best thing about it. At least the funniest thing about it.
So if you liked that and you came for more of the same, you will be treated that way. And you should not expect anything other than just silly action and all that accompanies that. Idris Elba has quite the appearance early on, but cannot add to that after that. He is just a stepping stone - I'm being a bit unfair. He has quite a few moments. Still overall you might be a bit disappointed in his character - but an obvious continuation of Hobbs and Shaw might shed some light on that (who am I kidding it made enough money for them to continue with this)
