I know I bitch and moan a lot about the movie, but the battle with Scorponok and the Autobots arrival on Earth were two of the best scenes in the movie and I love them both. However I do have two questions (one for each topic) which occurred to me last night. Question 1. Why didn't Scorponok utterly destroy Captain Lennon and his team? You'd think a sophisticated alien robot would easily wipe out the five humans armed with the equivalent of peashooters. I mean until the airforce arrived the humans were doing little to damage Scorpy. And on that note Scorponok seemed like he was just firing randomly and not actually aiming at the humans. I'm sure if he actually targeted them, he'd win easily. Question 2. Why did the Autobots crash onto the Earth instead of just landing? I mean I realize that in most Transformers continuities TFs usually crash on Earth but that's because their ship is out of control. In the movie they deliberately crashed. I mean landing would be far less painful, and would create less damage. Think about it; the Autobots crashing all around the city were endangering lives and destroying property. I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on these on these topics. Talk amongst yourselves.
