Corrected entry: When Sam first meets Barricade and mistakes the occupant for a real police officer, Sam talks directly to the camera which is positioned in the centre of the car, obviously to give the impression he's talking to the fake officer inside. That being the case, why would the fake police officer be positioned in the dead centre of the car? Surely the point of view of the camera should come from the drivers seat.
Corrected entry: We are shown that the Transformers have to scan an object in order to transform into it. However, Megatron came to Earth in the 19th century and was frozen up until the point in the movie where he unfreezes, and he gets away by turning into a jet and flying away. There was no possible way that Megatron could have scanned a jet inside the Hoover Dam.
Corrected entry: Transformers shares a few similarities with the movie Holes: both films star Shia Lebeouf (Holes was among the first films to star him), both films feature a main character with rich ancestral history that affects the outcome of crises they face, and both films feature Jon Voight in a supporting role.
Corrected entry: When Sam's car is "stolen" in the morning he takes off after it on his moms bike. After chasing it for what seems maybe 20 minutes, he runs into Barricade, who attacks him. Bumblebee comes to his rescue and the transformers start fighting. By this time it is starting to get dark, and by the time they are done fighting it is completely dark. All this takes place in what would seem like no more than an hour.
Corrected entry: In the scene at Hoover Dam where Sam is talking to Simmons, the clock in the background shows 11:35. The camera changes two or three times and then the clock shows 11:43, but actually only about 10-15 seconds of actual time have passed.
Corrected entry: when Maggie steals the info and puts it on an sd card, she waves down a cab, the next shot is a different cab dropping her off.
Corrected entry: When Megatron slams his flail down on the building that Sam is hanging off of with the Allspark causing him to fall, the roof explodes, yet Megatron's flail is not an explosive weapon, and concrete and other building materials don't normally catch fire and explode like that.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when Mikela is walking away from Sam and his broken car, there is a shot where Sam is saying, "No, no, no, don't let her walk away" and the car starts. In that shot, the passenger side door is open. In the very next shot where Sam gets out and closes the hood, the door is shut.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sam and his friend go to the lake party, when they are leaving, Sam's friend crawls through the window to get into his car. Then the shot goes over to show his friend through the drivers side window, and the passenger door is standing open, which would not make sense if he just crawled through the window.
Corrected entry: In the scene where we first see Megatron in the Hoover Dam, they go on about many technologies reverse engineered from him. and one of those is space flight. The problem is that the United States weren't the first ones into space, the Soviets were. Unless Soviet scientists could sneak into a top secret military bunker, research Megatron long enough to reverse engineer everything and sneak out unnoticed.
Corrected entry: In the very first scene we see two V-22 Ospreys flying the problem is that they still have their props up and flying horizontally this is a mistake because they are only like that during takeoff/landing then at a sufficient altitude then they switch position the fly horizontally.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Scorponok first attacks the soldiers, he kills a soldier wearing glasses and a boonie hat, but the same soldier reappears running down the hill as Scorponok jumps out of the sand.
Corrected entry: When Sam and his dad pull into the car dealership you can briefly see the camera crew in the reflection of the window.
Corrected entry: During the final battle scene Optimus tells the main actor to take "The Cube" to a certain building. When he arrives at the train station (Which is the abandoned train station in Detroit.not L.A.) he gets to the roof not only do you see the L.A. skyline, but the roof is full of new air conditioning units, and statues. None of these are visible on a abandoned building in the opening shot.
Corrected entry: When Bumblebee, in car form, shows up on the car lot, nobody on the lot recognizes it, indicating that the store never owned it, yet the salesmen still sells it. How is it possible for him to sell a car his store doesn't own? It wouldn't have the proper paperwork needed for things such as its registration.
Corrected entry: When Sam is driving Mikaela home, nothing at all is visible outside. The only thing visible outside of the vehicle are bright, white screens. The conditions outside are obviously right for there to be something else visible other than white screens.
Corrected entry: Devastator was the character's working title, and was intended to be called "Brawl." This was left in the theatrical release, but will be corrected on DVD. The reason for this that the Constructicons, which form Devastator, are in the running for appearing in the sequel.
