    Where do i start?

    Dutch.... Bloody hell, Tudyk was HILARIOUS... really was NOT expecting THAT when i saw he was cast... and the bit with the Russians? :lmao

    Ironhide *WEEPS* Personally i think he went out a bit too easily.....and the character reactions to Hide's death was missing IMHO..... but it was a good :wtf moment

    Loved the way Sam took out Screamer...

    also, i really liked the sequence when the Bots were taking off in the ship.... awesome shot.

    The Wreckers.... LOVED THEM.... Interesting that they were thought to be arseholes, so hidden from the public LOL....

    The Autobot ship.... Great design (Liked that Bay had the new guys appear with the ship and not under their own power)

    Brains & Wheelie..... A FAR better double act than those that cannot be named... though i wasn't so sure about the fact we never saw them after they did their stuff.....

    Sentinal.... Interesting that the colour was changed from the announcement trailer Gold to the truck Red.... Nimoy was great as the badguy.... and the battle at the end with Prime (and Megs) was just an all out Brawl...

    Megs... Liked the fact he had his own little hide out with Screamer & Soundwave.... though i thought the way he was just sat in an alley during the big battle.... kinda moping... was slightly off character. Great to see him Kick arse before Prime ripped his head off

    Speaking of which.... how many freaking heads did Prime take? He was BADASS

    The trailer-cum-weapons stand was interesting... nice design, though to have Prime suddenly change from internal weapons to carrying them on his back was a bit strange.

    LOL at the Fox digs

    Dino.... effectively a back up character.... but he was cool. Same went for Que.... rather annoyed he was executed like that.... the character would have been interesting in any more TF movies (Post Bay)


    All in all, this is a GREAT movie.... and i applaud everyone who reads this that had anything to do with the movie... and i say Thank you as well.

    Sentinel was like the biggest WTF moment ever! Oh my god, had me in tears when he kills Ironhide :'( Definitely wasn't enough focus on that though!

    Yeah. Totally got us by surprise there. And to think that everybody thought that the red Ferrari was going to be the traitor in this one. Awesome twist to the story.

    Sentinel evoked a sense of "dirty old man" feel.

    just wanted 2 add to my 1st post. the thing that really messes the movie up was the damn tv spots.. there were no secret bots left, everyone was revealed! i mean, ppl like hatchet, barricade, soundwave, megs all could have been left a secret, something to make us go "whoa" but we've seen it all in the spots. i was expecting that huge ship to be omega supreme but it wasnt, no huge surprises. i also feel like there were some awesome new characters that we just didnt get enough of. both cons and autobots. alot of cool new ones, didnt get enough of them, the superfund truck could have been someone really cool, why didnt they use him, they just showed him driving for a few second... all prime and bee all the way..

    yeah man... cons went out 2 easy. the mighty decepticons only kill the old scientist & no major humans, and prime killed everyone & destroyed cybertron! prime was a bigger decepticon than megatron this time! loved the movie as a transformers fan, but as a decepticon fan- hated it.

    Despite all the crappy/mysogynistic/scatological/whatever humor found in the first part part of the movie (the first apparition of Rosie with the shot on her butt, i was like ---> :wtf :head ),a pretty fun and action packed movie with gorgeous visual effects.Just wished Michael Bay could stop turning great actors (Tudyk, Turturro, Malkovich) into goofy ones.

    Nice job overall!

    Best movie of the 3, by far. Amazing in every respect.

    I was just gonna post a million exclamation marks but figured that wouldn't make sense. However, it is that awesome.

    We even got an earthquake during an action scene (thanks Christchurch!) which made it 4D.

    Sora, if you read this, know that I have worn my Allspark Splinter Pendant that you made me 2 years ago every day, and of course for this movie. Thank you again for it!

    Can't wait for you all to experience the awesomeness that is this movie. Love to all my TF people!
    Thanks for still remembering the pendant. (We got earthquakes, too. Hope it gets better soon in your country.)

    best part was at the end when some kid in my theater got up screaming that it was "unicron, and he is going to kill us all" when you see Cybertron emplode and he then ran out of the theater... great WTF moment! Brains And Dutch OMFG@!@ i was a bit disapointed that it wasnt more like the novel in the end how cybertron wasnt destroyed but back where it was and Megs leaves with a truce to rebuild and stop the fighting....

    man just got back from the 9PM show. the movies was simply amazing. the 3D is very well done. I really like all the jokes, the audiences laughed all the way through. The action was simply stunning and the effects is superb. Rosie acting, in my book, is better than Megan, and her performance was good. It is the best TF movie in the series.

    I would also like to point out, there were some scenes that has been reused from prev. movie, and even from The Island (highway chase scene).

    A much darker film....... RIP Ironhide at least he had a sick Battle on his way out

    Absolutely loved it and really respected what was accomplished this time around!

    All the campy stuff was toned down and the betrayal was on point...I also love Barricade showing up.

    The wreckers where cool and thought they did add a different angle to the A-BOtS

    My only gripe was not enough ratchet and sideswipe and Iron-hide was minimal as well.

    Either way loved it and think Bay really listened to feedback this time around. Dino turned out to be bad ass.
    Out of 20 strong we all liked it and it was a mixed group. Two individuals surprised me cause they hated the other two but loved this one. This one is way more relate able and emotional.

    Thank You
    Mr Bay

    Michael Bay just made the best movie ever...

    Nuff said. (I'm still in shock and amazement from what i saw.)

    Best Parts:

    -Optimus Vs. Sentinal Vs. Megatron (EPIC when Prime sliced through Megatron's head)

    -The voice performances of Peter Cullen, Leonard Nimoy, and Hugo Weaving.

    -The Autobots almost getting executed. (Goosebumps, man.)

    -The Wreakers voices (British/Scotish instead of 'Redneck')

    -Some great lines from both the Autobots and Decepticons. (Ironhide: "He's pissed" and Que: "These are great for kicking ass." and many more from Wheelie, Brains, Starscream and Soundwave.)

    -Bumblebee doing the 'wedding song' at the end.


    Things I didn't like:

    -The 'bar fight' while Simmons confronted the Russians (it seemed to slow the film a little).

    -Shockwave only having one line. (But at least he looked awesome. :borat)


    This is certainly my favorite out of the three films, and a HUGE improvement from Revenge of the Fallen (coming from someone who absolutely LOVES that film). The 3D was great and added depth to a lot of the scenes. Overall, it was worth the 634 days of waiting...



    Thank you Mr. Bay.

    This was way better the Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen, the special effects were amazing and the 3D was awesome, but it was not better than the first Transformers movie but it is one of my favorites, I barely cried when Ironhide died, same thing thing when they killed Que, and Dino never dies in the movie he lived thank god, and movie theater I went was very packed and all the tickets were sold out. Thank you Michael Bay, now let's see how much it makes tomorrow.

    Ok so just say the movie in 3D it was amazing. I give it 4.5 out of 5 hands down it will likely get that extra half point when i see it again tomorrow night in 2D.

    Pros:

    Action scenes are epic

    Sentinel Twist

    Humans actually work together with autobots

    No dangling giant balls!

    Comedy was just right ammount

    Laser Beak

    Optimus "kill em all"

    Everything else about this movie

    Cons:

    Ken jeoung

    john malkovich

    The movie is the best out of the three, the action is non stop and the 3D is amazing.

    Dino did not dissapoint, Que however did. Sentinel Primes turn was un-expected, i was sad to see ironhide die!

    Laserbeak was great, shockwave was less than spectacular.

    Remember Op killed a weakend shock wave, megatron, and sentinel.

    Over all i believe this movie will stand the test of time, and will gross 900 million plus, we will see another transformers movie weather its bay or not has yet to be seen but, i bet we have an answer within a year.

    This movie kept me on the edge of my seat and the plot holes where few and far between and minimal at best. Mr Bay well done and if you choose to do another one i am behind you 100% Thank you for bringing my childhood to a place where it makes me feel special! This movie gave me my hero moment when humans and autobots stood together.

    Still havnīt seen it. Been busy...
    When I read what my fellow fans here write I donīt know what to think though.
    Uh well... I couldnīt stay out today, how could I? I spoiled myself, thatīs fine.
    But... I need to see this movie before I pass judgement. I just hope it is as great I am hoping it to be, however, if all the Decepticons are just murdered with ease thatīs pretty ridiculous... I donīt know. Okok.. tomorrow maybe Iīll know

    The 3D was very well done and had attention to detail and the chase scene was epic when Sam went flying out of Bumblebee and then picked up and thrown in the car. The rest of the movie was a mess.
    The movie pace doesn't give you time to care emotionally or to invest yourself into the characters. IronHide gets killed and there was no acknowledgment or emotions among the characters. Still too much comedy. Autobots get abused a lot and kicked by the decepticons and humans are the only ones killing the decepticons by shooting them in the eyes? Didn't like that part of Sam fighting Starscream and killing him.

    Just saw the movie. Story was better than TF2, though I still found it overlong, but good God the visual effects were amazing... Really, without a doubt the greatest visual effects I have ever seen. Ever. Just honestly jaw-dropping stuff. The Oscar will not be denied to this Transformers film. A must-see theatrical experience of visual effects.

    No scene at end of credits.......Just within 15-20 seconds of the beginning of end titles.
    Just saw the 9pm showing here in Chicago. Sad to say, my theater did not show this in Imax even though they have one, F cars 2. Other then that I loved this movie. I feel as though I didn't see it though because there was so much. The effects were history making, and the rest was awesome.
    I am pretty ticked off though because I had made sure with the people who run the theater to turn it up and make sure it was bright. This didn't happen and the audio was way down :head:head
    Anyways I have found a new favorite movie.

    Thanks so much Mr. Bay and Co.

    I didn't stay to the very end of the credits because we started 45 minutes late.

    Oh my god, I wanted to cry so hard when Ironhide bit the dust. Why didn't Optimus grieve for the loss of his friend and weapons expert? That was cold. That was really cold. Que? OMG, him begging for his life gutted me. Thank you for not hurting Ratchet. I would have lost it.

    What happened to Brains and Wheelie? Those two turned out to be awesome! I thought they would be annoying, but I fell for them.
    They call me Ratchet Girl for a reasonl.
    Yeah, I'm a girl...SO FREAKING WHAT????
    I will always love Ratchet. Don't even try to take my title.

    As I just read Roger Ebert review, I find myself agreeing with him 100%. I know we are supposed to be fans here and talk about the good and dismiss the bad but this movie has no heart and couldn't wait for it to end. I am a big fan of these movies and loved the first one an the second one. I own the first and second on blu-ray but will not be buying this one at all or even renting it.
