I watched Transformers: Age Of Extinction a while ago and I came across this scene in the movie. I kept on rewinding the scene to try and make sense of it. Was this a mistake?

Was the guy dressed in grey a civilian in the movie? What was his purpose?

two men hiding from gunfire behind a brick wall

  • Can you offer a timestamp? – Valorum May 26 '16 at 13:24
  • No. But this scene occurs when Optimus is fighting at the end. I think this just before Bumblebee comes in. – rert588 May 26 '16 at 13:25

    I'm watching it now. Holy continuity errors, Batman. [2:31:07] First he's stood in front of a solid wall, then he runs to a wall with holes in it, then the guy in grey magically appears, then the wall is solid again, then has holes in it just in time for him to start shooting through the gaps. It's like the Continuity Editor took that day off. – Valorum May 26 '16 at 14:12

    “I watched Transformers: Age Of Extinction” — I think I’ve spotted the source of your problem. – Paul D. Waite Feb 7 '17 at 11:19

    There are no official sources or explanations for this, unfortunetly. One theory is that this is an SFX team member who set charges on the wall, and they exploded before he moved – Petersaber Feb 7 '17 at 11:32

From the picture, I can see your "gray guy" is: A) holding some sot of gun, and B) has clothing that looks like some sort of uniform. He appears to be a soldier. I do not know his purpose; as he is probably just some insignificant man/soldier.

    Although you're not wrong, pointing out the obvious isn't really helpful in this situation. – Valorum Feb 7 '17 at 11:20
  • i don't see any gun! looks like his hands are covering his head to me! – AidanO Feb 7 '17 at 15:23
  • Look at his waist. I thought that was a belt, but it has a barrel and a scope. – Iguanodon_Bubbles7777777 Feb 8 '17 at 2:49
  • This is a very poor answer, if one at that. It might be useful to expand on this. Maybe show how you've gotten to this answer, what was your research? etc. – Möoz Feb 14 '17 at 1:04

I've seen somewhere (can't find the source) in a compilation of movie mistakes that it was a FX/fireworks technician that has been forgotten to be removed in final cut.

    Without a source this seems more like a comment than an answer. Compilations of movie goofs are often very subjective and poorly referenced – Valorum Apr 23 '19 at 8:29
  • ah, good point :) – lukaszkups Apr 23 '19 at 8:34
