Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Revealing mistake: At the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, there is a triangular enclosure around Jetfire that amusingly just fades away and vanishes as Jetfire transforms.

Revealing mistake: When Grindor drops the Saturn with Mikaela, Sam and Leo inside, in the side shot as the airbags deploy, the stiff, shiny mannequin dressed as Sam is much too obvious through the open window.

Revealing mistake: When the group are outside talking to Jetfire in the aircraft 'boneyard', on the ground in the bottom right of the screen you can see the tyre tracks where the 3 cars are supposed to pull up to join the shot - then the car on the far right stops and pulls forward again till it's at the end of the tyre track.

Revealing mistake: Near the end, there's a slow motion shot of Sam and Mikaela running with explosions behind them. If you look at Mikaela closely, some fire goes right through her (this was added in post-production and they didn't rotoscope her properly).

Revealing mistake: At the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar, upon finding Jetfire, Wheelie turns and says, "This guy's a legend," and then later Wheelie turns and says, "I tell you, this guy did not age well." These specific CGI frames of Wheelie are the very same frames, and only the background plates (with and without Jetfire) differ.

Super Grover

Revealing mistake: When Sam, Mikaela, Simmons and Leo are being pursued by the police in Egypt, one of the police cars slams into a parked red car. This shot has been flipped. Note that the driver is on the right side, whereas in other shots the drivers are on the left.

Super Grover

Revealing mistake: When Mikaela is driving the Saturn she's wearing a long sleeved leather jacket, yet when Grindor shows up in front of them and the car spins, the driver is wearing a short sleeved t-shirt.

Revealing mistake: As the two main characters are running down the sand dune, you can see the darker sand of the previous takes where the director has raked down the sand so as not to show the foot marks in it.

Revealing mistake: During one of the shots in which the Pyramid of Giza gets destroyed, one of the falling rocks does not spin. During the fall, the rock bounces without spinning when touching the surface of the pyramid. It seems just to "hover" down.

Revealing mistake: In one of the first scenes with Devastator 'inhaling' everything in sight, there is an SFX shot of some random bystander hanging on for dear life, then losing his grip and being sucked in. During this shot you can see the matte halo around the person as they flail and 'fall'. It is especially noticeable given the general high quality of the effects in the film: by contrast this looks like a cheap effects shot from an old movie.

MegaZone

Revealing mistake: When the battle between Optimus and Megatron first begins, Optimus pulls a dead tree out of the ground, without branches and needles but still standing upright in its basic conical shape, and uses it to beat Megatron. The latter one deflects the attack by pushing it into another tree, the one where Sam in covering behind. When it hits that particular tree, you can see that the end of the tree is perfectly straight, as if it was cut by a saw rather than pulled out of the ground.

Revealing mistake: When Sam is standing on the stairs with his hands up, just before Megatron grabs him and throws him onto the table for the 'Doctor', the rail and balusters in front of Sam have been set up to easily break for the stunt - note the short diagonal bits of wood propped up between them, precisely where they break for the grab.

Super Grover

Revealing mistake: During the battle in Egypt, while Sam is down, there is a slow-motion shot from above with a UH-1 Iroquois (Huey) helicopter flying under the camera. The helicopter is bright white with high-visibility red and yellow stripes, and you can see "White Sands Missile Range" painted on both sides of the body of the chopper in the view from above. It appears to be a UH-1H SAR (Search And Rescue) chopper from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico: the colors and markings match.

Revealing mistake: The shot which shows Optimus Prime getting back up after he is being revived by Sam is used twice, only the second time it has been flipped.

Revealing mistake: When Major Lennox is being sustained by Galloway and Master Sergeant Epps says that he's an "Asssshole!", you can see bunch of soldiers and Autobots in the shot. Sunlight is almost in the middle of the shot; the problem is just the body of the soldiers blocks it. If you watch it closely you can see first a soldier with hat blocks sunlight, after that an Autobot should block it but it doesn't. Again a soldier comes from left to right and blocks it and after that an Autobot should have blocked it, but still you can see the sunlight.

Ikreos

Revealing mistake: After Galloway says: ''You just signed the death warrant on your career major'', we get an exterior shot of the C17 banking sharp to the right, at an angle of nearly 60 degrees. But in the following shot on the inside of the plane, everyone is still standing, and Lennox and Galloway haven't even moved.

Friso94

Revealing mistake: The same shot which shows the sun is used several times in this movie - please note the cloud next to it. Two of these shots have Jetfire in it, and three are after that.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Grindor lifts the car with Sam, Mikaela, and Leo in it, at the part where Sam is hanging from the door of the car and then lifts himself back up, you can see the stunt man's face.

Mistakes

While Mikaela and Sam are on the phone with each other (after the failed webchat date the night before), when Wheelie starts reaching up for the safe's combination lock in the first shot, there are no mouse traps on the floor near the short stool to his left, nor are there any cigar boxes. However, in the next shot two mouse traps (a snap trap with cheese bait and a glue trap) and two cigar boxes have all suddenly appeared. Wheelie proceeds to step on the two traps and then stands on the two boxes to reach the combination lock.

Trivia

When the planes bombard the desert ruins, the explosion, which holds the Guinness record, took 8 months to be made, more than principal filming took! Also, the planes used while filming in fact bombarded the set, as explosives detonated for the massive explosion. Seems Michael Bay enjoyed the high budget of this film.
