    I was re-watching the scene where the Dreads were ripping apart the highway in DOTM, and I realized something;

    1.) when Crowbar jumps up to the sign and knocks it down, it falls the wrong way... So if Crankcase and Hatchet were to drive up to it without it being fixed so they could, they would have crashed. So basically that was an error in its own way.

    2.) When Crowbar jumps up to the sign, he makes the same sound Bonecrusher made in the first TF (I'm probably not the first to notice). I find that VERY cheap of whoever made the sounds in DOTM.

    I mean I should have noticed these things before, I own a Crowbar page on Facebook for crying out loud. But when I did notice it I was displeased.
    Anyone else care to share some thoughts on any errors in the highway scene? Preferably ones with Crowbar? (So I can point it out on my page :lol )

    You think that's bad? There's an entire shot in the scene that was recycled from The Island.

    the second one isnt cheap, its called recycling. there isnt anything wrong, i love how you find the sound cheap because it was reused when the whole highway scene is reused and the the robots were added in....

    My dad pointed that out when we first saw the movie, but then told me it was probably because someone got hurt or somthing when they were shooting the actual scene.

    They really drove two Suburbans off the sign ramp, so they had to build it up into an actual safe for stunt-people to drive on ramp.

    1) Yeah, that is an error, but it was required for the following scene to work.

    2) That's not an error per say, just a reuse of sounds. It happens quite often through out the film actually.

    Maybe it's a Decepticon battle cry?

    Oh that entire scene is full of errors. So is the Mexican Standoff as well.

    1. Ironhide's Topkick form seems to take significant damage during the crash, but he's totally undamaged in robot mode, and is also undamaged in Topkick mode pulling into the base a minute later.

    2. The infamous guns reappearing on his back after dropping them when getting speared.

    3. Likewise the guns are gone, but so is the spear for the entire time he's dispatching of Crowbar, only for it a reappear just in time for him to toss it at Crankcase.

    Maybe they were just having a bad day.

    However the Island reuse wasn't a mistake as mentioned. They needed to replace the shot where that extra was hurt, obviously couldn't use the footage she was hurt in, and Bay didn't feel like shooting the stunt a second time with new people would be right.

    Was that ever confirmed, or is it just assumed?

    One shot the ground breaks because the dreads have stomped on it but when it shows the missle fly past the screen the ground appears intact.

    The recycled clip from The Island is so small and so inconsequential, especially when you consider the circumstances under which it was implemented in DOTM.

    It actually flows together pretty well. And they did a nice job of adding the new CGI.

    Yes, because Crowbar wanted to hump the sign's brains out, but tripped on his way . . . :redface2:
