Couldn't be. you could only get smarter by watching TF2 and by learning that the air and space museum in washington does NOT back onto the bone yard in arizona. and that from the pyramids in egypt to the daggers tip in jordan is NOT a 15min drive
plus you can find out that you have to go through Israel to get there. and you also don't need any papers or passports to get from egypt to jordan, you just need to say you are from new york.
A few mistakes in that movie from IMDB:
Revealing mistakes: A group of F-16 fighters flying in formation bank off to engage the Decepticons. Inexplicably, they each launch flares, a decoy for heat-seeking missiles, as they break formation. (This is likely because it's stock footage of F-16s on maneuvers.)
Crew or equipment visible: When Bumblebee drives along at sunset, with the other Autobots, low-angle camera rigging casts a shadow on the far right of the frame.
Continuity: When Sam Witwicky drops his papers on the college steps, 3 people on the right are walking behind him. When the shot changes, the same 3 people are further back, just getting to the steps.
Errors in geography: When Jetfire is reactivated at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, he blasts open a hangar door and steps outside. The exterior shot shows him and the other protagonists in the "bone yard" at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona.
Errors in geography: The scene involving Egypt, Jordan, and the Bay of Aqaba is a geographic mess. Petra is almost 1,000 km. from the pyramids, which are just outside Cairo, which is hundreds of kilometers inland from the Mediterranean.
Continuity: When Sam gets a green drink at the frat party, the drink is full in one shot, nearly empty in the next, and full again in the next.
Continuity: After Devastator has ripped off the top of the pyramid, Agent Simmons gives coordinates to a US Navy aircraft carrier. Simmons is supposed to be on the same pyramid, but you can clearly see the same pyramid in the background without any damage.
Errors in geography: In a few scenes in the movie, the USAF characters are at a military base in New Jersey, with a desert-like environment and mountains in the distance. New Jersey does not have a desert or big mountains.
Factual errors: When the Decepticons attack Paris, red and blue lights are seen through the streets. Parisian police lights are just blue.
Revealing mistakes: Very loud Decepticon meteorites crash down and explode by the pyramids in the distance, but the man in the foreground with the camels shows no reaction.
Factual errors: After Starscream deploys the EMP and the soldiers lose communication, MQ-1 Predators are ordered to be launched. The airframe that takes off is an MQ-9 Reaper, not a Predator.
Factual errors: An overhead scene of the Pentagon identifies it as "The Pentagon - Washington D.C." The Pentagon is in Arlington, VA.
Continuity: When The Fallen climbs the pyramid, the tip of is destroyed. In another scene, it appears to be intact.
Revealing mistakes: The short Egyptian soldier at the checkpoint is an army head, a very high rank that only 5 men hold.
Revealing mistakes: Only one Pyramid in Giza, the Pyramid of Khafre, has a smooth top. The machine to harvest Energon is hidden in that pyramid, and the whole fight takes place there. You can see the smooth top when Devastator is climbing the Pyramid. However, every shot is taken on the Pyramid of Khufu. For example, when agent Simmons is climbing the Khufu Pyramid, Khafre, which he should be climbing, is visible in the back.
Revealing mistakes: When the F-16s are flying to fight the Decepticons, none of them are armed with live weapons.
Factual errors: Tyrese Gibson's character is listed as Master Sergeant Epps, a grade of E-7. The rank stripes on his uniform are a Chief Master Sergeant, a grade of E-9.
Revealing mistakes: When the medical helicopter flies in during the end battle, you can see "White Sands Missile Range" written on the side of the door. The battle is supposed to be in Egypt; a WSMR helicopter would not be there. The aircraft was painted red, white, and Blue. The medic was wearing US Army ACU body armor, implying that he was on a "tactical" aircraft, so the plane should have been olive green. it also should have been a BlackHawk, not the Huey depicted.
Factual errors: The flag patch on Major Lennox's right shoulder have stars on the left side. Army regs state that the stars should be forward.
Continuity: When Galloway declares that NEST is being disbanded, he literally strips Major Lennox of his rank insignia. In the next scene, Lennox is wearing the oak leaf cluster again.
Revealing mistakes: When the team is jumping out of their aircraft into what should be the desolate Egyptian desert, a full modern two runway airstrip can be seen as they exit the rear of the aircraft.
Continuity: In the forest battle, Shia LaBeouf has a brace on his left hand (due to his car crash). Sam's hand was burned later on.
Crew or equipment visible: As the car dropped into the warehouse tips forward and lands on its roof, the camera mounted to the right side of the car (to capture the shot of the airbags inflating) is briefly visible.
Errors in geography: An establishing shot shows Manhattan. The very next shot shows two Transformers on top of a building in Downtown Los Angeles; the Aon Center and US Bank Tower are clearly visible.
Factual errors: In the areal shot of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, a number of F-14D Tomcats are on deck. The United States Navy retired its last Tomcats on Sept 22, 2006. When the carrier is sinking, no Tomcats appear. This is likely due to old file footage being used for the initial shot, and CGI for the sinking.
Continuity: When they leave America, it is the middle of the day. They arrive in Egypt at the same time as they left, yet it is the middle of the day there too. Egypt is 8 hours ahead of New York, so it should be evening when they arrive.
Crew or equipment visible: After the big battle, when Sam rubs Mikaela's back, you can clearly see her mic pack under her shirt.
Factual errors: When the USS Topeka (SSN-754) is operating on the surface, the footage shown is an early flight I Los Angeles Class submarine. The Topeka is a 688I class; its diving planes should be on its bow, not its sail.
