If you've read any of my other posts, you've heard me voice this complaint before, but it became crystal clear upon a second viewing: THESE MOVIES SHOULD NOT BE ABOUT THE MILITARY. 45 minutes of the climax is devoted to the military. Pointless scenes of parachuting, seals sneaking in, soldiers scaling the tower. Once again, it looks like the HUMANS are saving the Autobots. For an already overlong movie, so much of the final conflict does not even focus on the Autobots. Every time they show up, it's like, where were you? Prime losing his trailer was pointless. If he never lost the trailer, he can fly into the fray with jet pack and fire upon the rod, and get into the final battle. A good half hour of pointless military conflict can go. Prime losing his trailer simply opened up a huge stretch of non-Transformers action before he can come back, and then get caught up again in wires. Any Autobot could have snuck in and attacked the Decepticons and fired at the rod. And the Autobots getting captured offscreen in the final battle? What kind of a cop out is this? We waste 45 minutes with human characters and this can't even be shown? Do we see Sideswipe and Mirage take out more than one or two guys in all the final chaos, except for a few long shots? Barricade taken out by humans? The final battle should have been Autobots Vs Decepticons and nothing but. Again, this is NOT a G.I. Joe movie. This is NOT MODERN WARFARE: THE MOVIE. This is a Transformers movie. The humans should be utterly helpless against the Decepticons, cowering in bunkers praying that the Autobots can save them. I'm sick of the Team America stuff, we pay to see giant robots fight giant robots, not an Army recruitment film.
