For me, the most disappointing of all things about the movie is that the Autobots had LESS presence than the first movie In the first movie, they interacted with each other, you saw them participate in the final battle in a meaningful way, and overall, felt they were characters. Sure they didnt show up until halfway into the film, but at least TF1 had the excuse of being the first movie, thus introducing the story and having a smaller budget. Here, all of the Autobots are just background characters! They feel like walking guns instead of Characters. Even Bumblebee had less character than he did in the first movie. Aside from Optimus and the Twins (and even they just disappeared by the end), this was a major major disappoitment This was such a gimme for something that would be even better in a sequel. It just boggles my mind that the 2nd movie, with an even LARGER budget would actually be worse than the first in this aspect. Its incredible.
