Corrected entry: As Mikaela jumps out of the hole made in the library wall, she is wearing black flats opposed to the black heels she was wearing when they entered. We see her holding black heels in her hand while she is running down the steps, and she could have changed shoes while sitting in the library. But while she is running down the steps shortly afterwards they are now white. (00:53:50)Amber McCracken Craig
Corrected entry: In the opening scene, humans with hunting tools find Transformers building the Sun Harvester amid mountains so high they are covered in snow. This is to be the site of the Great Pyramids, and within some thousands (thousands, not millions) of years, the mountains have completely eroded down to sand dunes.cornpone
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sam and Mikaela are running away from the Decepticons after being captured, you see Bumblebee with Sam already in the car with his arm hanging out the window. Next scene, you see him running to Bumblebee and opening the driver's side door. As Bumblebee drives off, you see Sam's arm hanging out again.chugga
Corrected entry: In the movie's finale, when Mikaela and Sam are being pursued in Egypt, Mikaela's trousers are perfectly white after crawling in dust and getting dirty. (02:00:00 - 02:10:00)
Corrected entry: When underneath the meat locker, Leo tries to touch Frenzy's head, which Simmons took form the Hoover Dam. Simmons stops him by saying that it is still radio active. In the first film, he takes a reading of Sam after two days after buying Bumblebee, and it shows fourteen rads. After two years, Sam would be long dead if he kept using Bumblebee as a car, or even keep it near him in the garage. Simmons' Geiger counter also gives out a reading when Optimus first meets Simmons, so it's not just Frenzy who is radioactive.Friso94
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie we see the U.S. military deploy several troops to Egypt; however, one scene has LCACs landing 2 M1A1 Abrams, so obviously they are Marines. But later we see that they become M1A2s which are only in service with the Army, not Marines. And it only shows 2 landing but later there are several M1s and M2s (along with a M270). Also when the tanks are landing we see 2 AH-1 Supercobras but they mysteriously disappear after that scene.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sam dies, and the military people rushes towards him at the ground - you can see that when they "hit" him while he is laying there dead, his eyelid is actually moving.
Corrected entry: Orion's Belt (a.k.a. "The 3 Kings") is supposed to point to the Tomb of the Primes, and Jetfire had been searching for ages for it. Because of Earth's rotation on an axis, the stars never appear in the exact same place, even over the course of one night. The only one that doesn't shift is Polaris and that's why it's called the "North Star". Also after thousands and thousands of years, the stars will completely change positions (even Polaris).
Corrected entry: In Egypt, after Sgt. Epps mentions that the jets will target the orange smoke, you see everyone running away from the smoke in slow motion. Sam is holding the sock with the disintegrated Matrix in his left hand. In different shots as he is running away, the sock switches to his to right hand and then back to his left hand.Donatello
Corrected entry: The pyramids and the temples at Petra are tourist destinations where many people are surrounding the area and keeping it crowded. There is no way you would ever find the pyramids as empty as they are in the movie.
Corrected entry: During the battle in Egypt there are F-16s attacking the Decepticons. This is made very clear by repeated shots of the F-16s, and characters saying things like "I hope those F-16s are accurate. Just after the 'F-16 strike' we jump to another shot of two characters, and behind them you can see two jets pulling up and banking away, apparently just having made the strike. One of them is an A-10 Warthog, not an F-16 Fighting Falcon.MegaZone
Corrected entry: In the first scene of the movie, men are shown hunting when they come upon the transformers building the machine that destroys suns. There is a tiger in this scene and we know the machine is under the pyramids in Egypt. Tigers have never evolved in or made it to the African continent. (00:01:25)
Corrected entry: Egypt: When Sam and Mikaela separate from Leo & Simmons (right after finding the Matrix), Sam gets in Bumblebee and Mikaela runs to the left away from Bumblebee and out of the shot. Bumblebee then drives away without her. Even Leo is turned around watching her run the wrong way as if to say, "Where you going, girl?" Also after this scene, why are Mikaela and Sam no longer in Bumblebee? I never understood how and why they get out of the car and travel on foot to the pillars instead of driving.

Corrected entry: Assuming the Decepticons are individuals (which they all have been), the constructicons are all in different places at once. One of the first guys you see is Scavenger: he forms the chest of Devestator but dies to Optimus in one of the fist scenes. It gets worse in the final battle where the individual robots that form Devastator can be seen fighting individually at the same time. You see Long Haul (the big green dump truck) sneaking around a building looking for Sam - he is the leg of Devastator who is stomping around at the time. Bumblebee has a 10 minute fight with Rampage - who is Devastator's right arm. I am pretty sure that was Hightower helping Megatron find Sam as well - though currently he is Devastator's leg. Oh and then during and after Devastator is being destroying you can see Mixmaster (Devastator's head) getting his butt kicked by Jetfire. Also the huge Shovel vehicle afterward is supposed to be Scrapper (the other arm for Devastator). It's as though they had something else in mind for the plot but things changed in editing etc. These were always supposed to be individuals, not clones. They even have the same paint-jobs as their Devastator components. I love this movie but this is an amazing thing to overlook from a continuity standpoint.NerveCenter
Corrected entry: In the scene after the F-16s air strike and 2000 pound bomb attack, Ironhide is seen running away from the explosions, you can see his weapons break and fall off. Yet just before the Fallen attacks the resurrected Optimus, you can see that Ironhide now has his weapons back on his arms.
Corrected entry: Near the end, when the big red Transformer is vacuuming everything in its sight, Leo and Agent Simmons are hiding behind a van. The van gets sucked right in and so do a lot of other heavy objects, yet they manage to run away. It is physically impossible to run away from something powerful enough to vacuum houses and cars.A l e x
Corrected entry: At the beginning, the shard of the Cube drops onto the kitchen table and transforms all electrical equipment in the kitchen into Transformers. Sam's dad asks, when hiding behind the fountain, what they are and Sam replies, "The whole kitchen". However, Sam was on the 2nd floor when the kitchen appliances transformed, so he shouldn't have known all the Transformers came from the kitchen.lionhead
Corrected entry: The F16s striking the Decepticons in the end battle actually are F/A18s. Also, F16s aren't used on aircraft carriers.
Corrected entry: When Sam lands on the other end of the "Space Bridge", he is seen holding his hand and screaming. The next scene his hand is wrapped with fresh gauze. Where did it come from?
Corrected entry: When Sam's roommate is showing him his video setup, he says, "The government covered up that thing in L.A. two years ago." (I know that's not the exact wording that he used). However, the showdown with Megatron and the Decepticons over the AllSpark happened in Mission City, not Los Angeles.
Corrected entry: When they're in Egypt, where Shia Luboff and Megan Fox are running away from the Decepticon, he has on a leather jacket and then under that a white t-shirt, then under that a purple hoodie. As they are running, he had to be able to take off his white t-shirt, then take off his purple hoodie, then put back his t-shirt again, all while running away.
Corrected entry: For some reason, one of the Decepticons can suck up cars and enormous slabs of concrete but cannot suck up the two characters running away from it.
Corrected entry: After Sam, Mikaela, and Leo escape from Megatron and the Micro 'Doc Bot' they go to a deserted 'junkyard' with Skids, Mudflap, and Bumblebee. When nightfall hits, after Sam tells Bumblebee that he has to turn himself in, Bumblebee encourages him to stay the course and then turns into car mode. At that point when Sam is leaning on the hood and Bumblebee scooches forward and flashes his lights, you are able to see the obvious outline of a crew man in the driver side seat of Bumblebee, making Bumblebee move. (In the previous and following shots there is no holographic projection of a driver in Bumblebee.)XMichiganState5x
Corrected entry: In the first movie actor Glenn Morshower plays Colonel Sharp, commander of the SOCCENT airbase that is destroyed by Blackout at the beginning, with no survivors(according to John Keller).In the second movie he plays General Morshower in command of of the NEST base.Apparently more than Transformers can come back to life.
Corrected entry: When Sam leaves for college they leave in a little black car, but arrive in a grayish SUV.
Corrected entry: After Sam and Mikaela find the Matrix and exit the tomb when they hear the planes coming that are hauling Optimus Prime, there is a shot of Agent Simmons standing on the steps of the tomb, and behind him there is no hole in the wall where they broke through to find the actual Tomb of the Primes.
Corrected entry: When Mikaela and Sam enter the room to hide, a tiny robot flies in - Sam holds it with one hand and uses the other hand to tear it apart. In this shot the bandages on his hand have disappeared.
Corrected entry: When the main soldier is in a airplane or helicopter you can see a large chunk of green screen behind his head.
Corrected entry: The Primes tell Sam to merge the Matrix with Optimus's spark. That would be impossible, seeing as how Megatron thrust his claw through Prime's spark core during the forest battle, causing a massive explosion and Prime's death.
Corrected entry: On several occasions in the movie, you can see the US Air Force roundel displayed on aircraft not used by the Air Force, such as F-18s.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the N.E.S.T Major is demoted, the liaison rips off the Major's velcro rank insignia, leaving an empty space. After the liaison leaves, you can see the gap has been replaced by something else.
Corrected entry: When Jetfire is in robot mode, white sidewinder missiles can be seen on his legs. Sr22's don't have any weapons.
Corrected entry: Blackout is in the fight scene between Optimus, Starscream and Megatron in the woods, and has his face ripped apart by Optimus. But he was quite killed by aircraft fire and a rocket launcher in the final battle of the first film. This is definitely Blackout, and makes no sense.
Corrected entry: Whenever we see Bumblebee in his robot mode his yellow body armour is scratched, dented, battered and blackened as if he has been in a battle, however when he transforms into his Camero form the body work is pristine. This occurs even when Bumblebee has been in action throughout the film. Driving in the desert doesn't even cause him to pick up any dust (unlike Skids and Mudflap).
Corrected entry: When Mikaela is hot wiring the car to escape from the female Decepticon, Sam shouts, "Go, go go, Megan, go." That's the actress' real name, not the character's name of Mikaela. (00:54:10)
Corrected entry: They show Devastator with two balls hanging around. Devastators are construction vehicles, but none of them have a wrecking ball on them, much less two. Also remember, Prime killed Demolisher in the beginning: he was there again at the main body of Devastator.
Corrected entry: In the night scene after 'the death scene', Sam says he will give himself up to the authorities. Bumblebee tries to convince him otherwise and transforms. He then revs his engine as Sam sits on his bonnet. You can see the crew member's silhouette in the Camaro as the car is revv'ed.punkyjack
Corrected entry: It took a remarkably short amount of time to rebuild Megatron. Only a few minutes appeared to pass between the point that the Decepticons arrive at Megatron's corpse, the smaller Decepticon is killed and used for parts, and Megatron is completely repaired. The Allspark shard had not even been placed in Megatron yet, so it is amazing that he could have been fixed that fast without it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Optimus Prime is getting dropped off by the airplanes, right after you see Sam and his girlfriend walk off towards the drop zone, there is a scene in the nearby town. It's a split second scene, but you can see a graphical error in which a man is almost thrown to the ground from the top of a small building and then the shot cuts. (01:43:15)Elsek
Corrected entry: In the first movie, the Allspark Cube fell to Earth over a thousand years ago. In the second movie, it explains that the Transformers have been on Earth for about the same time (if not longer). If the Transformers have been on Earth for over a thousand years, why didn't they recover the Allspark Cube then?
Corrected entry: After of one of the Decepticons has cut off the top of the Khafre pyramid (the one with the remaining original outer stone layer at the top), you can see it complete later in a scene with the S7 agent.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Megatron has just been revived and is heading up to smash into the submarine, we hear the captain of the submarine say, "Evasive manouver left", yet in the very next shot, the submarine turns right.
Corrected entry: In one of the scenes in Egypt, Bumblebee is driving beside the group and is supposed to not have anyone inside of him, but the driver of the car can be seen.
Corrected entry: When Wheelie and Jetfire are talking, it's stated that the Decepticons' goal is to destroy the Universe, and that hate is their only motivator. That is incorrect, per the discussion between Megatron, the Fallen, and Starscream. It's just that the Decepticons don't care about other sentient species (particularly humans), when balanced against the survival of their own.JayK
Corrected entry: At numerous times during the Egypt scenes, the pyramids are seen in the foreground while downtown LA is seen in the background.
Corrected entry: In Egypt the Transformer that is sucking everything into itself, it's sucking all kinds of things and we see in one scene where the walls of a trailer are ripped off and sucked into the monster. Just in front or on the side of the trailer is a little table with a lamp and some other kind of decoration on it but it never moves. How can the walls of a trailer be torn off but a little table with stuff on it stay where it is?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sam's parents are outside a cafe in Paris you can see a Budweiser bottle on the table. This beer is not sold in France, largely due to copyright issues with a European beer of the same name [but which has a significantly different bottle].
Corrected entry: The Constructicons make up Devastator. When Agent Simmons, Leo, Mudflap & Skids are fighting Devastator. The Constructicons that are Devastator's head [The Cement Mixer Truck and Long Haul The Giant Green Dump Truck, which is the last vehicle to transform right behind Simmons & Leo] are both seen fighting in their robot modes against the N.E.S.T team members at the same time as being a part of Devastator.Unless they can be in two places at the same time, this isn't possible.
Corrected entry: At the end of the first film, the remains of Megatron and the other Decepticons were sunk to great depths because the pressure and freezing temperatures (to which Transformers are vulnerable) will prevent the remains from being recovered. Yet this was completely ignored in this movie, with the Decepticons diving in to retrieve and revive Megatron.
