    I have always wondered how it gets so dark so fast in some of the scenes with the Transformers or when lots of action is happening (aside from the Freeway and Ending battles). Here are some examples:

    (1) Blackout...it is day time when they first communicate with 4500X and it seems like in 5 minutes it is night time already when he lands

    (2) When Sam is getting chased by barricade it is daytime and when all the action finally goes down it is night time

    (3) When Maggie visits Glen at his house...it is daytime when they look at the SD card and nighttime when Glen's cousin gets a shakedown in the pool from the PO-lice

    Has anyone else wondered this?

    This particular topic has been discussed to death.

    In fact, every single flaw in the movie that can be perceived by the human eye has been.

    It's fairly common in movies generally - years ago I saw a pursuit film, I think Charlie Sheen was in it, where the sun sets and the sky goes dark completely within the space of one scene, in a time frame covering 30 seconds or so. Even the tried & trusted Hollywood time compression can't explain that one.

    True I suppose. Maybe because the film is littered with them. I gave what I thought to be a reasonable concise shot at an explanation for this phenomena here:
