Vanquish's transforming robots have more dignity than whatever Bay comes up with. They are literal soulless, killing machines, whom have more personality than the Autobots or Decepticons combined with all the Bayformers movies. This scene literally happens in the game!Michael Bay seems to make Transformers movies for a very specific audience: Michael Bay. OMG THE US MILITARY IS AWESOME also throw in an awkward romance for the girls and I guess there's robots somewhere in there too.
"Optimus who? Oh, whatever. RAAAGH MACHINE GUNS!"
I tried to defend the first live action movie somewhat at the time. I knew it wasn't perfect, but I saw it as just a regular 7 out of 10. Nowadays you ask me, it would just be a 5-6 out of 10. Then Revenge of the Fallen happened and soured that whole experience. I saw a Dark Of The Moon, but it was only barely better than the second movie. I saw the fourth movie twice, and I skipped out on the 5th movie. Bumblebee I was elated to see. So far it is the only good live action Transformers movie. I am so glad Bay does not want to do these anymore, nor holds any interests.
