Fast and the Furious, The - Hanging by a Thread
In the scene right after race wars when Dom and the crew are going to steal the truck w/ out Jesse, Mia and Brian are trying to catch up to Dom...they do and see that there is trouble. Vince is hanging onto the truck and can't get off. Mia takes control of Brain's car and Brian jumps on to the truck. You can very well see a blue chord holding him onto the truck. I know he is suppose to be safe considering this is just a movie, but come on...way to obvious!

If you paid attention, that blue cord was the part of the projectile that he shoots into the seat of the truck. He then managed to get caught in it while trying to get off the truck.

I see no point why he WOULD have a blue cord on him. Keep in mind, it is just a movie and he is not actually jumping from a 100+ mph car onto a truck.

I watched that movie and i also thought that maybe that chord was the one connecting Vince to the seat so that he could get into the truck and steal stuff. but it wasn't. the chord he was caught on was on the other side tangled on his arm. the chord that we saw was really holding up Paul Walker, but it was supposed to be hidden. They used the same wires to hold up the actors as they did in the movie scene for him to shoot the passenger seat and make his way in.

Well, I do not believe that the cord is very visible at all! The only cord I see is the one used to get on the truck by Vince. A blue cord is in the background but it takes EXTREME critical watching to see. It is very well discuised by the people who made this movie and anyone who watches this movie at home on VHS or DVD and sees this, even WITH pausing like an idiot after every frame, should be sent to the government to work as a special agent. Thats some really great vision you have there.

The cord was not only something he shot into the truck, but it was also holding him on the truck(to keep him safe and to show danger). They put that on there s it would look like he was in trouble for more effect in the movie.
