    there's always continuity and editting goofs in virtuallly every movie that has ever been made but this one really caught my eye the most and affects an entire scene.


    When the first Dread jumps over the freeway sign, it knocks it over and makes both signs face forward, meaning that the signs face AWAY from the traffic going towards it. There is no way it can be used as a ramp.

    In the next scene, the signs are the other way so that they can be used as ramps so that the other 2 Dreads can jump over the sign.

    And then in the next shot, the signs are flipped back to the original position, which is away from the incoming traffic.


    When you go and watch the movie again, look out for it.

    Of course it doesn't affect my enjoyment of the scene but when I was watching it again, I was just thinking....wow, that ramp jump was awfully convenient....oh wait!!!! Its not even facing the right direction!!!

    Anyone else notice it?

    Great scene by the way, the best scene in the entire movie

    they also used footage from the Island in the freeway scene. They also used Optimus Prime from Michael Bay's previous movie in this one.

    Bay isn't known for obeying the laws of physics.

    Just search out the webpages devoted to proving all the physics-based inconsistencies in 'Armageddon.'

    Besides, try and explain the space-time blip that causes the Autobots to drive on the opposite side of the road for a split-second in the 2007 film.

    that scene was awesome. The buff Dreads flippin cars over like they were magazines, the intensity and the music. Shoot em Bee, SHOOT EM!!

    The Autobots swevrvin this way an that doin mid-transformations, yeeeee!!!!

    I dont care if it was reused. Besides I will just say it, this didnt beat Bad Boys chase scene. (from the first one, Will Smith runnin on foot chasin Trailbreaker lol, with that Mancia music an his shirt open, flyin in the wind to save Martin damn that was a classic!)

    No, I am honestly concerned that Springerbee was serious with that statement. And I'm not dumb... I know it wasn't directed to me, but I still wanna clarify.

    I was just making fun of the fact that Michael Bay reuses subtle stuff in his movies and everybody makes a big deal about it.
