It seems that these plot holes were pointed out by people who have no knowledge of Transformers and the mythos it developed. Hell, most of these theories just take a little imagination. Someone posted a list of all these plot holes and I have solved them. All these were taken from the top ten burning questions list on Yahoo. Burning Questions: The 10 Most Confusing Things in 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' 1. In "Transformers," there was this giant battle in the middle of downtown Los Angeles -- excuse me, Mission City -- that was witnessed by thousands of people at the very least. But somehow the government was able to cover up the whole thing, and now the existence of alien robots is just an internet rumor? How did they do it? Pay off everyone who was there and quickly fix millions of dollars in damage? Also, didn't Keller (Jon Voight) go on TV and tell everyone we were being attacked by "a technological civilization far superior to our own"? How did they spin that? It is possible that the government covered this all up. No Keller was not on TV either. They dismissed the whole Mission City battle in the novel as an entire military strategy gone awry or something along that line. It's like Area 51. They covered that all up but people still know about it. 2. There are two pieces of the Allspark cube left: the military has one under lock and key, and Sam discovers another. The Decepticons steal one and bring Megatron back to life. But when Sam (Shia LaBeouf) wants to bring back Optimus, he has to find the Matrix of Leadership on the other side of the globe. Why not use the other piece? Mikaela (Megan Fox) has it in her backpack the whole time. It brought his kitchen appliances to life, why can't it do the same for Optimus? When a Prime dies, they stay dead. Only something as powerful as the Matrix could bring him back to life, plus they needed someone with information to locate the harvester. 3. Speaking of Megatron's rebirth, when the Decepticons venture deep into the ocean to revive him, the Navy crew tracking them reads five contacts. When they get down there, they tear apart one of the robots for parts to rebuild Megatron. Then as they rise to the surface, the same Navy guys say they spot six contacts. The little "Doctor" robot popped out down there, but he's about a third of the size of a person. Would he have shown up on sonar? I don't even see how this would interfere with the plot. The Doctor was concealed inside Ravage the entire time. It's possible they picked up him on sonar. 4. That reminds me: even if I were to forgive the Doctor's German accent -- and director Michael Bay is asking me to forgive a lot of ridiculous accents -- why would a robot need glasses? He has little lenses that flip in front of his mechanical eyes. Couldn't he just get his eyes adjusted? You'd think with all the laser guns, someone could perform a Lasik procedure. Who loses sleep over something like this? Maybe The Doctor installed them himself but he ever damaged his optics he would have a backup pair of "glasses" to help him see better. Having those installed in his eyes means that if his eyes go then so do the glasses. 5. Apparently, Transformers can look like people now. How? And how is it that even though the robo-girl (Isabel Lucas) is made of metal, she can still straddle Sam without crushing him. And if Bumblebee knows something's wrong with her, why does he spit antifreeze at her instead of telling Sam? Yes, his voicebox is broken, but wasn't it fixed at the end of the last movie? If you read the prequel comic series called "Alliance" Bumblebee damaged his voice box again. Alice is a pretender, she is made up of lightweight material (Which is why she was crushed so easily by the car) to match the form she scanned. Bumblebee couldn't pick up her signature because she was concealing it. She never knew Sam's Camaro was Bumblebee either from what I could tell. 6. The Fallen is the last of the Primes, since they all sacrificed themselves to stop him from destroying the sun. But then he says that Optimus is a descendant of the Primes. First, Transformers have kids? And second, how could he descend from them if they were all dead? And if the Fallen could only be destroyed by a Prime, why didn't the originals just gang up on him back in the day? And what makes Optimus so special, anyway? Megatron beat him earlier, but all it takes is a few spare parts from creaky old Jetfire for him to take out the Fallen? Transformers build protoforms then use some of their spark to give life to a new Transformer. Prime is a descendant so he isn't completely as powerful as a true Prime. Megatron is Prime's brother infact and he killed Prime WITH A COWARDLY STAB FROM BEHIND. The Fallen was the strongest Prime of all and they did gang up on him and still couldn't beat him. Jetfire is an ancient transformer who is incredibly powerful which helped Prime defeat The Fallen. The whole thing with Megatron and the Fallen is like someone with a body guard. The Fallen didn't want to take the risk of getting killed (maybe Prime is just that strong) so he sent Megatron to do the dirty work. 7. Sam, Mikaela, and Simmons (John Turturro) go to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. to find Jetfire. Then they walk out the back onto a wide open field with old planes and mountains in the distance. When did the National Mall start to look so much like to Tucson, AZ (where they really filmed that scene)? Not really a plot hole but yes it's a geographical error. 8. The geography is just as bad when they go to Egypt. The stone city of Petra in Jordan is over 250 miles away, over mountainous terrain, with few paved roads and the Israeli border between them, so how can they drive from one to the other in a couple of hours. And the Pyramids are said to be shooting distance from the Mediterranean, but they are actually well over 80 miles inland. Even if the Navy ship had a secret rail gun, and even if the captain would take an order to fire from a former agent of a government branch that no longer exists (over a walkie-talkie that inexplicably starts working again), how could it hit a moving target from that distance? Another geographical error. 9. Sam briefly dies and goes to Robot Heaven. Robot Heaven?!?! Ok, Sam absorbed the power of the Allspark, what did you expect? For him just to die right there? The Primes needed to contact Sam and the Allspark was the link between them, which Sam absorbed. The Primes are ancient beings with many powers, why are you surprised in the first place? Ever here of "Technology beyong our understanding"? Is it also hard to understand this movie is SCIENCE FICTION? 10. Where does Sam's bandage come from? What about his extra sock? Why does Sam's roommate not contribute anything at all? What was the Fallen doing for those thousands of years Megatron was frozen in ice? How does one satellite receive transmissions from everywhere on the planet? Why does Wheelie hump Mikaela's leg? Why do we have to see John Turturro's thong? Why are robots who join together to become Devastator also seen fighting the Army at the same time? Why does the government want only our military fighting Decepticons when our weapons seem unable to make so much as a dent on any of them? Why did the ancient Egyptians build a pyramid around the sun-destroying machines instead of just breaking it? Why is the Matrix of Leadership bigger in the Fallen's hand than in Sam's? How do Mikaela's pants stay so clean? - Who knows? Maybe Mikeala had an extra one in her purse? - He probably took off his shoe but they cut the scene for time constraints. Alot scenes were cut. - He did contribute a little bit to the film. He knew exactly where to find information about the Decepticons (Agent Simmons) - Waiting for the right moment to strike? - Soundwave manipulated the Satellite to his advantage. He's an alien robot specialized in this field after all. - Humor? People have different tastes in comedy, just because you don't find it funny doesn't mean everyone else doesn't. People were laughing in my theater. - Read the above statement. - There are more than one variation of constructicon. They're backup limbs. If Devastator loses an arm or a leg there is someone nearby who can fill that place him. The Constructicons are army builders. - This is our government after all. Some of our weaponry does do quite a bit of damage to Cybertronian metal. - They didn't have the neccessary materials to destroy it. They thought it was something from their gods. It's cybertronian and back then it's impossible to destroy. - The same reason why the glasses looked bigger in Optimus' hand in the first movie, the audience can see it better. - It's not like she rolled around in dirt. She wasn't completely clean either if you didn't notice. All it takes is a little imagination to make your theories accurate. It's a science fiction movie after all, anything can happen.
