Continuity mistake: When Darcy is at the site in the Arctic, the frozen Dinobots she sees do not appear until she walks up to them. In the establishing shot of the site, they are nowhere in sight. And in the shot where the site worker is pointing a shotgun at her, the only things seen in the background are the vehicles on the site. The frozen Dinobot suddenly appears in the background when she continues to walk towards it. (00:03:05)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Cade and Lucas are walking up to the theatre, in the shot where they are approaching the owner, he is shown leaning against his car and facing away from them. The shot then cuts to the owner, where he is suddenly facing towards them. (00:04:50)

Continuity mistake: When the girls in the red jeep pull up to the mail boxes, Tessa gets out and says "almost time for a tan and get wasted." Another girl then gets out and throws one arm up in the air and cheers. From the front shot, you see that both her sleeves are still over her shoulders, and her hair is over her left arm, which is down. From behind and the sleeve on her left shoulder is down so her arm is showing, and her hair is now behind her back, with her pink bra strap visible. (00:07:10)

Continuity mistake: When Cade is forcing the real estate agent and the two buyers off his lawn, he threatens them with a baseball bat. The bat is in his right hand as the three get back inside the car, but as soon as the car begins to drive out of the lawn, the bat has suddenly switched to his left hand. (00:13:15)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Cade is showing Tessa the photo of him and her mother, the right corner of the frame is shadowed compared to the rest of it. A few seconds later, when Tessa begins to walk away, the shadow in the right corner of the frame has disappeared. (00:23:05)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Cade says that this is a no dating household, that he doesn't date and neither does Tessa. Tessa then says that maybe he should, and storms off outside. Cade follows her, and as you see him leaving the shack, there is nothing in his hands. But when he gets outside and catches up to her, suddenly he is holding a power drill in one hand, and an adjustable wrench in the other. (00:23:15)

Continuity mistake: When Tessa and Lucas are telling Cade they need to get the truck out of the barn, Cade says he's been working in there all night, and he is fine. His arms are raised when he says this, but when the shot cuts, his arms are suddenly by his side. (00:26:05)

Continuity mistake: Lucas returns from getting parts for Optimus Prime, saying he went to the doctor. As he pulls up in his car and parks, his window is up. But then it shows him open his door and climbing out, and suddenly the window is halfway rolled down. (00:33:20)

Continuity mistake: When the agents of Cemetery Wind arrive at Cade's house, Lucas is shown in a close up hiding behind a tree, looking out. His arm is stretched out beside him, obviously his hand on the tree and him close to it. But then it cuts to a far shot from behind and suddenly his arm is down and he is further from the tree. (00:34:55)

Continuity mistake: When Bumblebee acquires his new Camaro look, Tessa and Shane are sitting inside him. After the new look is complete you get a camera shot in front of Bumblebee where you see that no one is inside the car. In the next shot both are sitting back in it. (01:10:00)

Continuity mistake: Optimus and the car Tessa is trapped in are caught in a net and are pulled up to Lockdown's ship. Cade then jumps and grabs onto the net whilst it is being raised. There is a brief moment where Optimus is not visible inside the from the net, before being visible again in the next shot. The CG artists likely forgot to add Optimus into the shot during post-production. (01:22:35)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Tessa is on Lockdown's ship, she comes across the Cemetery Wind team making the trade with Lockdown. In the shot shown of Tessa looking at them in the background, the helicopter that Cemetery Wind arrived in has its propeller spinning really fast. It then cuts to Savoy, where the propeller is moving much more slowly and about to stop. (01:27:30)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Lock Down is giving the seed to the CIA the scratch on his chest is top left to bottom right, while in the rest of the movie it is top right to bottom left. (01:27:35)

xandageoff

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which Tessa is hanging onto the wires suspended above the skyscraper, Lockdown's dogs start crawling on the wires behind her. The dogs then disappear in the next closeup of Tessa, only to reappear in the next shot. (01:39:10)

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, when Cade is helping Hound, he is wearing a black jacket. In one shot, he is seen hiding behind a pillar wearing a green shirt. Then, before he pulls the pin on Hound's grenade, you can see him remove his jacket, revealing the green shirt underneath. (02:16:15)

Gigastor

Continuity mistake: When Optimus Prime and Galvatron first fight, Tessa hides in the abandoned car. Between shots the cars door opens and closes.

Tony Samantha Rees-minchella

Continuity mistake: When Bumblebee and Drift reach KSI headquarters a Rolls Royce is in the shot. In the next shot when Bumblebee is transforming the Rolls Royce is far away from Bumblebee. In the next shot when Bumblebee is crashed through KSI headquarters there is no Rolls Royce parked out front.

Aaron Perry

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Autobots are escaping from the KSI building, closely pursued by Galvatron and Stinger, the satellite tracker used by Joshua to track them, using an orange false image view, indicates they are driving on a freeway leaving the city. This is backed up by a swooping shot showing the same. However a second or two later and they are in the middle of an open countryside, not a building in sight (there are many 360 degree camera sweeps), a few bridges and other cars, but also old concrete banked curves. This is on a test track which for some reason they didn't CGI to make it fit with the supposed scenery the satellite indicated they were near.

gazhiley

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Optimus frees the "Legendary Warriors", aka Dinobots, they walk into the canyon area and Optimus addresses them and asks for their help. It appears there are 3, maybe 4 large robots. When Grimlock screams and starts to fight Optimus, the others disappear. They continue to fight, showing from wide angles, and the others are still nowhere to be seen. Grimlock then transforms and charges at Optimus, with nothing behind him or between the two. When Optimus knocks him to the ground, it shows the angle that he falls to the ground in slow motion, and the other warriors appear in the area that Grimlock just ran through.

Jason Swan

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cade, Shane, Tessa and Lucas are running away from Lockdown, they leave Shane's car behind. After Lockdown's grenade detonates, the car is nowhere to be found in the aftermath.

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Lockdown stabs Optimus in the chest with his own sword, Cade runs closer and shoots at Lockdown. He then hides behind some bricks. In that shot, the bricks are a broken wall that is two separate pieces. Then it cuts to a different shot as Lockdown returns fire at Cade, and now the wall is one piece. Not only this, but some random guy suddenly appears in the shot next to the wall and right where the explosion happens where Lockdown shot the wall. He is wearing the same color clothes as the wall and only visible for a moment. There was no other guy present until that moment and he just suddenly appears behind Cade and gets hit. It's presumably a special effects member setting off the charge in the wall by the looks of it and it detonated before he got out of the shot. (02:30:55)
