Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

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.


Trivia: Shia LaBeouf's hand was seriously injured during a car accident. LaBeouf returned to filming, and the injury was written into the film as Sam damaging his hand falling out of the space bridge.

Trivia: When Sam and Mikaela are running through the pillars to meet up with Optimus Prime there is a Decepticon that almost gets his head blown off. If you slow it down frame by frame on his right arm is says T1000. A little play on the Terminator. (DVD commentary.) (02:07:25)

Trivia: When Optimus Prime is being rebuilt/upgraded using parts from Jetfire, you can see a brief glimpse of R2D2 coming off of Jetfire (only visible for about 1 second, thus slow-mode should be used to see it, and it is permitted to use slow motion for trivia). (02:17:45)


Trivia: When Sam starts drawing the symbols in his room, the first poster he draws on is for Bad Boys 2, another Michael Bay film. (00:48:50)

Trivia: When Devastator starts to suck everything up, there is a shot of a newspaper with a headline that reads, "Mysterious Robot Spotted." That robot is an old version of Shockwave.

Continuity mistake: After Mikaela throws the metal box at Alice and breaks the window, when Sam runs out of his dorm room screaming we see (and have seen multiple times prior to this) the wall and bathroom door opposite his door. Oddly enough, in the next shot from the hallway, Sam, Mikaela and Leo are actually leaving from a door that's farther down the hallway. Sam's actual door is the first one on the right, opposite the bathroom door - there is a bike wheel leaning against the wall beside the bathroom door. (00:52:00)

Question: What happened to Wheels (the little remote controlled car that Mikaela was turning into a pet) at the end? The last time I remembered seeing him in the movie was him entering that one building in Egypt, where Bumblebee, Mudflap, and Skids can't get into. He mutters something about "stupid Autobots". But, after that, he kind of disappears? Or was he around and I just didn't notice?

Answer: After the tomb, he doesn't appear onscreen again. There's no indication as to what happened to him.
