An ancient struggle between two Cybertronian races, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, comes to Earth, with a clue to the ultimate power held by a teenager.
(at around 40 mins) During the Scorponok desert attack, Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel) calls reinforcements through a telephone. This was inspired by a real-life anecdote a soldier told Michael Bay during filming: during the Grenada invasion, a unit lost its radio in an attack, but found a nearby telephone line, so one of the soldiers in the unit helped out by giving his credit card to get through to the Pentagon. A scene depicting this, featuring Mario Van Peebles, was in Heartbreak Ridge (1986).
Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time, we lived in harmony. But like all great power, some wanted it ...
(at around 46 mins) When we are first introduced to Glen, he is wearing a green shirt and a pair of Washington Redskins-themed pajama pants. Later, when he and Maggie are sitting in the FBI's interrogation room (at around 1h 7 mins), he's now wearing a Washington Redskins jersey and jeans which he wears for the rest of the film. However there doesn't seem to be any indication that the FBI would have let Glen change his clothes after he was taken into custody.
SPOILER: There are three scenes in the closing credits:
The full screen version shown on TV adds two additional cuts to the scene where Scorponok knocks over a water tower in the desert. After the tower is knocked down, Donnelly ('Zack Ward') asks what happened, it cuts to Fig (Amaury Nolasco) who responds in Spanish, then cuts back again to Donnelly. This was most likely done because both actors are visible in the shot in wide screen, but in full screen Fig is not visible.
