    Anyone still posting here?


    Well, it is a step up over the 2nd movie, but there were some stuff I had issues with.


    Pros:


    -It seemed to be more like the "Countdown to Doom" arc and that was really neat.


    -Megatron blasted poor ol' Abe at the Lincoln Memorial and sat in the seat - ala "Atlantis, Arise!"


    -Sentinel Prime being the main villain and of course the warped 'Spock logic' [since Leonard Nimoy did the voicing] when describing earth and Cybertron to Optimus.


    -As usual, visuals kicks butt!


    -The 'twins' from the 2nd movie aren't in it and Sam's parents are in a few scenes and aren't major players in the end.


    Cons:


    -Another Autobot dies, it's Ironhide


    -Soundwave [didn't speak much english, just more decepticon garble], Shockwave [no voice synthesizer and turns into a car?], Starscream [isn't out for just himself and dies from a human], Megatron [transforms into a truck?, that could've been the combaticon Onslaught] were all underused and wasted.

    While it was a slight improvement from the previous movie, it was still similar to the garbled, jumbled, incoherent mess of a plot that was Transformers 2. Much of the characters were also far too over the top to the point that some of their exclamations got downright silly.

    I agree. The decepticons were wasted and could've been done better [and speak in english!]. The endless army of unknowns is just dumb and confusing. I get they wanted to focus on a handful of characters, but how about a little idea on who the other characters were?

    I didn't like the design of Q/aka Wheeljack, and was disappointed he was executed in cold 'blood' like that.
