Continuity mistake: Carly's shoes appear to mysteriously alternate several times between black stiletto heels and black ballet flats in-between shots during the climactic action sequence. This is most noticeable during the collapsing building sequence as well as the scene in which Carly speaks to Megatron.
Continuity mistake: When Sam is first shown at his new flat and the two small robots appear, Sam has a small argument with them, and takes one of the robots in his hand to put him on the floor, but in between these two shots Carly walks in front of the camera thus focusing our attention on her, but if you look at Sam putting the robot down, there is nothing in his hand. And when it's only him in the shot again the robot comes back. They must have missed adding the CGI maybe because he was in the background of the shot at the time.
Continuity mistake: In the scene with Richard Nixon speaking to the Apollo astronauts, the TV showing the phone call shows a lamp behind his head, and the seat being right behind him. But if you look at the actor sat there, there is no lamp, and the angle of the camera shows the chair would not be in shot.
Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dylan are fighting, the clock behind them changes to different times every shot. It starts at 00:40, then 02:25, 00:15 and 11:00 in the following shots.
Continuity mistake: *Spoiler* After Cybertron is pulled into Earth's orbit, they show that it can be seen from the earth's surface, pretty much the entire sky is taken up with Cybertron. However, in several scenes afterwards the sky is shown in the background as being crystal clear again.TheTomness
Continuity mistake: Just before Optimus Prime arrives in the street where he kills ten Decepticons in twenty seconds, there is a shot of Sentinel saying "It's our world now!", and he is looking out over that same street. When Sam comes out of cover to take a look at Cybertron, Sentinel is still on the building. But when Sam shouts "Optimus!" Sentinel is gone.Friso94
Continuity mistake: In the scene when the characters are sliding down the glass building, just before they shoot the windows, there is a shot where a chair is sliding down along them on the left side. The camera dips down for a moment, and when it goes back up, the chair is gone, even though there is no hole in the building for it to go.
Continuity mistake: During the freeway chase, there is a shot with Hatchet landing on a car on the opposite side of the freeway. This shot has all sorts of poles on the center guardrail, and structures in the background. Then the poles in the center disappear, and the white-ish buildings in the background change into a bridge.Friso94
Continuity mistake: In the highway chase scene, one of the Decepticons knocks down the freeway sign which causes the signs, originally facing the on coming cars, to flip away from them. The other two Decpticons then use the signs to as a ramp to get further down the road. This should be impossible because the signs didn't land that way. When the Decepticons land, the signs are pointing the first way again.
Continuity mistake: When Optimus takes the roll to avoid getting shot by Shockwave, you can see the very distinct clock of the Hotchkiss building can be seen in the background, yet they aren't fighting in front of that. In the next shots, the building in front of which Optimus rips out Shockwave's eye is much more modern.Friso94
Continuity mistake: When Optimus takes a dive after his rampage in front of Shockwave, you can see that it is actually in front of the building with the control pillar in it (note the very distinct clock in the background) yet when Optimus shoots the dome and the pillar down, he's a good distance away from it.Friso94
Continuity mistake: During the final fight between Optimus and Sentinel, a long curved copper pipe going from Sentinel Prime's chest to his right arm disappears and reappears between shots. And it isn't torn of in the fight between only the Prime's, I cannot say if Megatron doesn't remove it later on.starscreamf15
Continuity mistake: When Sam leaves for his job interviews he sees his parents and drops his jacket, he then walks back into the apartment and comes back out with his jacket in his hands.
Continuity mistake: When Sam first meets Dylan Gould at his showroom/office, there is a close up of Dylan using an iPad which he hands to his assistant. His assistant then folds her arms, covering the Apple logo. In the next shot it has been repositioned to show the logo.
Continuity mistake: Just before the soldiers jump out of the Osprey, there is a shot of them running for the exit. You can see a very big gun on the soldier's chest. But in every shot of them wingsuiting through Chicago, none of the soldiers can be seen carrying any kind of weapons, let alone big LMG's and assault rifles which they use after landing.Friso94
Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Sam receives the medal , his hairstyle (parting) alters .
Continuity mistake: When Sam and Jerry Wang are in the elevator, just after the other co-workers leave, Jerry takes a drink from his milk carton, placing the straw in his mouth, from the top of the straw, down to the hinge section. The shot cuts and there is suddenly less of the straw in his mouth. (00:40:00)Casual Person
Continuity mistake: During the Mexican Standoff, Ironhide finally forces the spike into the face of one of the Dreads and lifts him up by it. Pay attention to the red car underneath: when Ironhide smashes the Decepticon's face, the windshield is fine, but when he puts him down, the windshield is suddenly damaged - before the Decepticon lands.Friso94
