    Do u guy think DOTM story is similar to Battle L.A ? I mean aliens invade earth, Destroy the whole city with their Spaceship, A group of Soldiers get in the city and try too defeat the aliens, And they figure that all they have to do is Destroy the headquater (in DOTM that's mean the Pillar) and the whole systems shut down, Earth save

    Yeah but Battle L.A. was a huge pice of sh*t with literally no story and non stop action that got real boring real fast and didn't have an ending.

    DOTM at least TRIED to have a plot, and had a pretty desent one...

    I could find only ONE real similarity between DOTM and B:LA and it was one scene with a Con ship before the Autobots' epic return. The sound and the movements were similar to a B:LA drone.

    These days most movies are the same

    Independance Day - Destroy mothership you destroy the aliens
    DOTM - Destroy Pillars, you destroy the decepticons
    Battle La - Destroy HQ, you kill the aliens

    When the Pillars in DOTM was destroyed and Sam and Lennox looking up, you see the decepticon ships getting sucked into Cybertron

    In Battle La when that HQ was destroyed you see all the Alien sips fall

    Lets say Unicron was in the next Transformers.
    You destroy Unicron and the Decepticons lose!

    Battle LA's biggest problem for me is that the aliens were unstoppable in the beginning and for NO REASON at all the tide turns in favor for the humans half way through.

    At least in DOTM there are skydivers sneaking in along with the autobots returning. Things were still a struggle after this. They weren't exactly one hit one killing there way through the army of decepticons.

    And also in ID4 the shields were brought down, you may not like the game changer but at least there was one.

    A movie released around a month or two before DOTM was released does not a rip off make. It means both movies were made around the same time, and any similarities between them is a coincidence. Jeez...

    This.

    I prefer to assume that Leo joined another movie's military then blew himself up fighting the Battle:LA Bionicl- aliens >_>

    Uhh there was a whole scene of two of the soldiers dissecting one of the captive aliens and finding their weak spot. The reason the aliens were kicking human ass in the first half of the film was because nobody knew where their vitals were. Then once the soldiers dig into it's body they find that organ that filters water which was basically their heart.

    If your talking about Leo, yeah. I spent a good part of the movie trying to figure out, where the hell did I see that guy?

    As soon as I got home, I had to look, and I was surprised. Totally different character in Battle LA compared to Transformers. His character I thought, was better in LA, hope I don't get slammed.

    Why was he in ROTF again?

    Try summing them up in a few sentences:

    DOTM: When Optimus Prime's mentor turns on him, the Autobots uncover a Decepticon conspiracy. There are a couple of heart wrenching scenes and a red guy who laughs a lot.

    Battle: LA: Surviving soldiers fight aliens for a couple of hours. There's this cool part where Ramon Rodriguez kills an alien and the survivors hide from an alien then it sort of drags on for a while.

    Nah.

    You almost got it right, just replace DOTM with Battle For LA and vice versa.

    We all went to see Big bad robots fight each other and got maybe 15 minutes of that total. There was more Shockwave in a Burger King commercial.
