    About halfway through Jetfire's 10-minute Exposition-o-rama speech, and

    Again during the final battle... it was EPIC, but c'mon, it went ON and ON and ON.

    not during the final battle but pretty much I pretty much zone out for everything between the space bridge and Starscream showing up. That whole segment of the movie sucked ass. I wasnt checking my watch though I was playing with my prime key chain

    I know, this battle just kept going on. I was exhausted by the time it finally ended

    I'm glad the movie slowed a little. The beginning and end was and endless succession of split second scenes flickering across the screen in a blur before one could focus or get oriented.
    If you are an ADHD on double Espresso Coffee then sure the pace was fine.

    Looked at my watch 3 times.

    I was so into the movie until Jetfire used the Space Bridge... that's about when I started checking time. Egypt sucked.

    My senses were so busy being assaulted by RAR SMASH BANG that I had no time or composure to check my watch.

    What is this "watch" you speak of?

    Seriously though I didn't think about checking the time I was caught up in the moment. The only parts that seemed slow to me were moms brownie scenes on campus.

    The only slow part for me was during the last leg of Sam's sprint to Optimus. It was the goal for the last hour and the closer he got, the more time it took to get another couple feet. Did he really need to lie down and take a nap 10 yards from the destination?

    My bad, he had to have a prophet dream. One cannot do that awake.

    I did while waiting for the movie to start. I was one of maybe ten real TF fans. Just a bunch of teens texting. PISSES ME OFF!!!
    One kid was watching batman on his ipod. Another kid didn't stop texting from 9 to 11:55 (12:00 first showing)

    Saw the movie for a second time tonight and it just flew by, as compared to last night's midnight showing, where I could really feel the length of the movie. I chalk that up to it being a midnight showing and not getting out until almost 3am.

    WAS IT ME OR WAS THE FINAL BATTLE ANTI-CLIMACTIC?

    I was on the edge of my seat until the end of the forest fight scene. From there, the movie failed to hold my interest much. It was like a pretty girl with bad breath, nice to look at, but ultimately a bummer.
