    She shoots everywhere in every direction. Runs into groups of enemies without cover or back up. Does stupid karate ninja spinning moves and can jump in the air and stay up there for like 20 seconds which I can't stand. Anyone else agree?

    At least it's not just standing and shooting like everyone else. Especially Bumblebee.

    On the contrary, I quite enjoy the acrobatic antics of Arcee. Her super-saiyan tackle on Megatron was especially hilarious in it's inplausable strength XD

    Dude, have you seen Bumblebee do his boxing stuff? It's awesome.

    Boy Leather Elbows, you sure love to complain.

    On topic:

    She can get away with rushing enemies like that because she's small and fast, and therefore hard to hit.

    She's an alien robot. She has muscular coordination and strength that humans can't come close to.

    Most of the action scenes in this show are terrible. After the movie's insane hand to hand battles, and TFA's varied weapons and super-powers, just having everyone line up and fire impotently at charging enemies is boring.

    another thread just for the sake of having one it seems. By stating everything Arcee does, you have proven her action scenes aren't terrible, as they actually, you know, have action. Last I checked, the other bots just kinda huddle in a circle and spray their lasers every which way =/.

    Bad thread=bad. As Vegeta says: SAD FOR YOU!

    Indeed.

    Arcee's action is probably some of the more stand out parts, but her samey style of just jumpign and shooting or jumping and wirling get's repetative.

    Better Arcee do those things than Bumblebee... I guess that's why the toy gets more attention (collectibility and modifications-wise) than the yellow, kid-friendly mascot...

    Bumblebee's boxer/street-brawler method of unarmed combat is more impressive than Arcee's y a mile.

    That scene where he was whacking around the MECH guys is one of my favorite action scenes so far of season 2.

    As someone who's, however briefly, dabbled in CGI animation, I appreciate human-like fluid motions like simple punches and such that involves the body moving in a realistic, subtle and relatable way like that. Arcee's jump attacks and spinning nonsense are, relatively, "easy" (I quote because 3D animation is anything BUT) because the motion is fast and involves a lot of made up physics and quick motions. This is also why I prefer hand-to-hand and melee combat to just standing and shooting. Especially with the awful sounding, "pew-pew" almost always recoil-less guns of TFPrime.
