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)Quantom X
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.

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: 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
Plot hole: After everyone flees the family home, as Optimus is escaping he is pursued by a helicopter. He is driving down a road in a straight line. He never deviates. Yet the helicopter misses him every time, only narrowly hitting him on the side.
Visible crew/equipment: After Optimus stabs Lockdown and slices him in half with his sword, it cuts to a shot of Tessa witnessing it, and Shane getting out of the tow truck. When the camera pans towards Shane, he shouts "Yeah" and the reflection of a boom mic can be seen on the wing mirror of the tow truck just before the shot cuts. (02:33:20)Casual Person
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 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
Visible crew/equipment: In the final battle scene, just after Bumblebee temporarily knocks over Lockdown, Cade shouts "Get out of here, now" and it cuts to Tessa and Shane about to get into a tow truck and Shane telling Tessa to get in. In this shot, the reflection of a crew member, most likely a cameraman can be seen briefly reflected on the door of the tow truck. (02:31:40)Casual Person
