    ...that when Bumblebee is chasing Sam on his Mom's bike and he gets cornered by Barricade that the sun was shining brightly... then about 3 minutes later during Bumblebee and Barricade's "battle" it is suddenly pitch black outside?

    So much for realism, man...

    Maybe the chase lasted a long time, or it was just beginning sunset?

    It is strange. He says good morning to Mojo, notices Bumblebee is in his yard, goes outside and gets chased, then Barricade shows up and it's night time.

    people usually like to point out obvious things like this

    believe me, everybody else noticed it but most didn't care.

    There is something called Time lapse. It just means that you don't have to know what happens every single minute to drive the story forward.

    Maybe I wasn't supposed to notice that none of the humans in the film ate food. I guess they're all solar powered or something :p

    Only two creatures urinated, too, so it leads me to believe that everybody in the film (except for Mojo and Bumblebee) must be in Starfleet.

    Ah shit, that's right! Glen ate Donuts! And the Flight Attendant on Airforce One bit a ding dong, lol :D  But you only saw Glen take a bite or two, so maybe I wasn't supposed to noticed that the entire plate was then empty. Where did the rest of the donuts go? :sly:  :p

    Such a minor thing to complain about.

    edit: the day to night thing, not the donuts

    That's about as good of an explanation as Optimus Prime's trailer in G1 being made of disappearium (listen to the commentary on the 20th Anniversary Movie DVD if you don't get it). I don't care how many time cuts there were in that scene, there is NO way it lasted a day. Someone of Sam's stature would almost certainly pass out if he was running/riding a bike constantly for that long.

    it not so much that time lapses are unacceptable, but as far as the time lapses in the movie go, they were very poorly edited. it made it seem more like a mistake then a time lapse. and it happened with blackout too. in the end it was probably just Michael bay being, this looks better at night! yeah! and boom. its night.
