i agree with the basic premise that the film is rife with plotholes, inconsistencies and various other nonsense... but most of the ones on this list seem pretty minor and silly. i wouldn't really consider a robot having glasses to be a major plothole.

Every single movie ever made no matter how much effort is put into it can be spun for plot holes.
Look at Titanic, that movie has so many gaffs its crazy, that don't mean it wasn't a good movie, cause it was.
Some of this stuff needs to just be let go, and enjoy.

Loved the movie and agree it had some problems.
But #2 is wrong. Sam didn't think about bringing Prime back till he heard about the matrix's power, which at that point had used the shard to awaken Jetfire.
#7 was actually the only hole that bothered me.

I agree with some of the points the linked article makes, disagree with the others.
I pretty much checked my brain at the door when I went in to see the movie. I think it was a fun, enjoyable special effects spectacle and I couldn't help but be entertained as a fan of 1980s toys and cartoons (although the forced cinéma vérité-inspired camera work was a bit too much in certain fight scenes). Looking back on it critically though, and putting my interest in the subject material aside, I have to say that it's poorly paced and plotted, the dialogue was leaden and groan-worthy at spots, and none of the actors' performances were particularly inspired (even John Turturro, who was probably my favourite actor in the film, pretty much hammed it up all the way through the movie).
So yeah, I think it was a below-average film in terms of critical artistic merit (not in terms of technical craft, though). But that aside, I still found it to be grossly entertaining, and that's all I was really looking for when I stepped in to the theatre to see it.

Loved it for the fact that it was Transformers. If you love Transformers then get over the holes in the plot. Just be glad it's there and they are getting the recognition that we have wanted to them for years.
Sheesh-you can't make EVRERYONE happy you know.
