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
Continuity mistake: When Sam is in his bedroom, after he finds the Cube sliver it falls and dramatically burns a hole through the floor into the kitchen. But Sam's bedroom is over the living room (there is nothing on the ground floor below Sam's elevated bathroom, and in the first movie Jazz hides in this open space), and the kitchen is actually located between the den and dining room, at the other end of the house. If they were to follow the actual floor plan of the house, the Cube sliver would have landed in the area of the piano in the living room, but where would the fun have been in that?

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.Link
