Basically this. That is dead on the sense of this trailer. Bumblebee took a shot that shot to save Optimus, the last Prime, bearer of the Matrix which is the only thing that can save Cybertron when the time is right (play the first game to learn more). His sacrifice and feeling of loss is the theme of this trailer. They are fighting a losing war and the losses are taking their toll. The planet is being torn apart and nothing seems worth that much bloodshed but they must keep fighting to save the planet and their race.Mantonio said:This single trailer is more awesome, and has more emotion, than all three of Michael Bay's movies.
I get a big sense of hopelessness from this. Like, there are no battlefields anymore. There's just killing and killing, as both sides start to run out of men. Pure anarchy, as the world just tears itself apart.
Also, notice how they're mostly using hand to hand weapons. To me, this gives the impression that they're just running out of ammo, and having to resort to melee.
