Deliberate mistake: When Frenzy attacks Sam, the teenager wears straight leg jeans with a narrow leg opening (not boot cut) and thick-soled Nikes, seen in numerous shots, as he kicks at the Decepticon. After the cut to Mikaela (who finds the reciprocating saw), during which Frenzy has already pulled off the bottom of Sam's jeans, Sam continues to kick and scream just before he gets up and runs. Problem is Sam still wears both thick-soled Nikes, neither of which slipped off as Frenzy maniacally pulled the jeans, with narrow leg openings, from his kicking legs/feet. Impossible even in the best of circumstances.

Continuity mistake: After Sam dives between the Troll's legs and tries to crawl away, in the first shot the Troll lifts his leg and in the second shot he's about to step on Sam, who is in the middle of the floor. Yet in the very next shot Sam is already at the wall raising his left arm and wincing at the giant foot coming down on him. (00:29:50)

Visible crew/equipment: In the Room of Requirement, during the Patronus lesson Harry walks behind Ginny, who stands between two other girls, and she says, "Expecto Patronum!" As the Patronus exits her wand, just before the shot cuts away, in the reflection behind the girls we can catch a glimpse of the camera, cameraman and crew member wearing a short-sleeved tee, between and behind the reflections of Ginny and the blonde girl.

Audio problem: Before they leave for Mission City, Lennox tells Keller, "Sir, you gotta figure out some way to get word out..." Then in the next shot, as Lennox shouts, "Let's move!" his mouth stays open - not forming the "m" with his lips to produce the word "move", which we hear very clearly (it looks as if he really said, "Let's go!"). Changes in dialogue are done during ADR and often are not in sync with mouth movements seen onscreen. (01:45:45)

Continuity mistake: At 12 Grimmauld Place, when Harry and Sirius are in the room with the Black family tree, as Sirius says, "My parents with their pure-blood mania," the area of the wall with both Sirius's and Andromeda's names and burned off pictures is quite visible (as in other shots as well). Bellatrix's name is beside Andromeda's (her sister), but there is no picture over Bellatrix's name banner in this shot (only branches and leaves), nor in any other shot, except in the previous close-up, as Sirius says, "My deranged cousin," where there is a picture of Bellatrix over her name.

Continuity mistake: When Simmons leads the way into the room with the old Army radio console, he pushes open the massive doors with Keller and the rest behind him (we see the very distinctive wall opposite those doors). When Frenzy pays them a visit at those doors, just as Simmons shouts, "Burn, you little sucker!" in the overhead shot, that side of the doors (in the hallway) is once again visible, only they look completely different now. (01:47:25 - 01:49:15)

Visible crew/equipment: During the attack on Hoover Dam, after Simmons rejects Sam's request to be brought to Bumblebee, when Simmons tells Lennox to drop his weapon, in the next overhead wideshot the grey tape marker between Lennox's and Simmons's feet is visible, as well as the tape marker at Secretary Keller's feet.

Continuity mistake: When Bumblebee's legs are destroyed, as Sam leans over in front of him and asks if he's alright, Sam wears blue patterned boxers, but when Lennox runs up to Sam, who is standing on the tow truck helping Mikaela hoist Bumblebee, Sam's boxers are grey (as seen between his white tee and jeans). Then, when Sam is on the roof running, after the chopper is hit, his boxers are blue patterned. (01:53:45 - 01:57:10)

Visible crew/equipment: In the aerial shot, as Starscream flies past the glass building with the names "Deloitte and Touche" (before his first attack on those in Mission City), we see the reflection of the filming helicopter behind Starscream, just beneath the names. (01:53:20)

Continuity mistake: At Hoover Dam, when Sam tells Banacheck the terms of his cooperation (which include expunging Mikaela's juvenile record), Mikaela's high-gloss lip gloss disappears in her close-up, then reappears. (01:36:00)

Continuity mistake: When the SUVs arrive at the Hoover Dam, the lead car pulls up to the curb and the doors open directly in front of the first elevator tower (there are four, which are seen in overhead shots), on its right, with the two Nevada intake towers well ahead of the SUV, on its left. Next close-up, however, as Sam exits the SUV the vehicle is now parked farther up the road, directly in front of the Nevada intake towers to its left and closer to the second elevator tower. Note the yellow pedestrian walkway markings (leading to the Nevada intake towers) the SUV is parked on in the second shot. (01:34:25)

Revealing mistake: When Ironhide shouts, "Incoming!" as Starscream fires on them, Lennox and Epps are blown backwards and slam onto the ground. The shot of them hitting the ground and the next close-up of Lennox are flipped shots. Note the reversed 'Broadway Bar' sign and Lennox's watch. (01:53:45)

Visible crew/equipment: After Banacheck walks away with Sam and Mikaela, when Agent Simmons stands by himself on the Hoover Dam intake tower walkway and says, "The man's an extortionist," the reflector screen is reflected in his sunglasses. (01:36:20)

Continuity mistake: At Hoover Dam, when the soldiers salute Keller the clock reads 10:00, then as Keller, the soldiers, Maggie and Glen walk away in the background, when Simmons tells Sam that they got off to a bad start the clock reads 11:35, and next shot when Banacheck interrupts it reads 11:43. Also when Simmons talks to Mikaela and Sam the word "Nevada" is gone and it only reads "Time" under the clock. Then when Banacheck says, "Come with me, we'll talk about your car," the word "Nevada" is back under the clock. (01:35:25)

Transformers mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As we are hearing Prime explaining, "They're a young species, they have much to learn," we see S-Seven's SUVs pull up to the curb at Hoover Dam and the doors open, right beside the vertical guardrail posts with the horizontal beams. In the next close-up, all of the horizontal beams have vanished. (01:34:25)

Continuity mistake: When Sam grabs his mom's pink bike, there is nothing in the white basket at the handlebars as he flees from Bumblebee. However, at the start of the shot just before the tire hits the broken concrete, a square pink pillow suddenly appears in the basket, before flying out as Sam flips over. (00:48:10)

Continuity mistake: Aboard Air Force One, when Frenzy kills the first two Secret Service agents, the second agent falls back into the hallway, but his feet are still in the room over the bottom raised lip of the doorway. When the third agent fires on Frenzy, the legs of that second agent are lying flat on the room's floor, right beside the first agent that was hit. Note that the agent's legs are also beside the shelving unit, which is a good distance from the door. (00:31:45)

Continuity mistake: When Sam pursues Bumblebee on his bike, as he is on the phone with 911 there is a close-up of Sam's feet pedaling. After Bumblebee breaks through the gate, there is another close-up of Sam's feet pedaling, but now the gears/chain are different. (00:33:50)

Continuity mistake: After Frenzy uses the POTUS mainframe aboard Air Force One, when he kills the third agent the man falls backward towards the back wall, but in the next shot as the other agents arrive, the body faces the opposite way. (00:32:05)
