Who cares if Shia's character lucked out twice
The best way of describing this movie is like an X BOX game. Where you control the character and annying decide to waste time, where you should be going to the "drop off", or the next point in the game but instead you decide to waste several hours of your time "exploring" around town, where less exciting things are happening.
Be prepared to not see much of the transformers, and question whether you entered the right movie theatre in points.
Included in this movie is the struggle of Shia's character to find work, and EVERY character reacting to the fact that he lucked out with his new and improved girlfriend. cool for five minutes, NOT for 1 & 1/2 hours.
Don't get me wrong she was hot as hell right? But I would've preferred to have seen her character with more of a storyline. Get her in the action, get her running for her life without the need for Shia, get her forming relationships with the transformers, give her more than just eye candy as a reason for being in the movie!!!
Also, in the main battle scene when Optimus finally appears (SPOILER ALERT) he conveniently gets his wings caught in a wire and again we don't see him for another 45 minutes.
Bumble bee is nowhere to be seen for most of the movie, leaving Shia transformerless for the most of the plot.
The way Megatron dies, indicates to me that they forgot about him, and in a rush to wrap the movie up in the last 15 minutes they kill him off in a way that insults the rank and the very essence of his character.
Shia gets a job and everybody's happy.
If I was Megan Fox, I would be feeling so good right now, it seemed the movie was made with more focus on petty references to her character than it was about actual transformers.
Don't get me wrong, the action scenes were intense and well thought out. They were just few and far between.
I expect Megan to now be a lead in a new action movie within the next year - if she plays her cards right.
Though with the upcome-ance of intellectual hotties like Olivia Wilde, Megan better move fast before naive/borderline stupid hotties are redrafted completely.
