    Look at these 2 pics below:

    [​IMG]

    Do you notice anything wrong? I do.

    In the first pic, all the Autobot survivors are coming from one side of the city, but on the second pic, Bumblebee and Ratchet seem to have come from the other side of the city, and that puts them on the other side of the bridge. So how can Bumblebee and Ratchet be on 2 different places at the same time? Unless they crossed the bridge, but I don't remember that happening. So Bumblebee and Ratchet are on the side of the bridge where Megatron is dead on the ground, but they came from the side of the bridge where Sentinel is dead on the ground along with the rest of the Autobots. You can also notice the buildings in the background of each pic are different, so that makes it clear that Bumblebee and Ratchet are on 2 different places. Or maybe Optimus never turns around, and the editors put Sentinel where Megatron was and changed the buildings in the background, which I highly doubt. I'm taking all this from 2 screen shots, but it's been long since I last watched the movie, so I could be wrong about all this. But still, if Bumblebee and Ratchet never cross the bridge, how can they be in 2 different places at the same time?

    Maybe it was just a lapse in time, none of the other autobots got flipped around. Also none of the other autobots were really invested in the human characters anyway.

    They could have simply crossed the Bridge from one place to another [if you notice, other soldiers are doing the same thing].

    Not throwing you personally under the bus, but I call BS on this idea - this was just a mistake of framing. They wanted to "populate" or "frame" the shot (likely for better stills or for want of epic shots), so they added BB & Ratchet to the shot and said to hell with continuity...

    That's probably what's really happened, but they COULD have simply crossed. I don't think it doesn't count a mistake [specially since only those three crossed the Bridge, The Wreckers are still on the other side].

    Maybe this shot was made when Mirage was still intended to be killed? That doesn't explain the Wreckers though.

    Anyway, everything really has been reversed there, it's an entirely different shot set up. Huh. Well, in the actual film the shot doesn't last too long so it's not something I would really notice without freeze framing.

    Yes, but he's conspicuously absent from the shot of the other three, the only non-Wrecker Autobot not there.
