    As far as I know there are only 2 choices

    Bonecrusher and Optimus

    and

    Dread Chase

    I would go with the Dread Chase

    Both, but I prefer the Dreads one a little bit more. Longer and better.

    The Dreads ones much better because it is lengthier, if optimus vs bonecrusher was any longer it could have been better imo.

    The Dreads scene is better for a number of reasons:

    • Overall length
    • Complemented by a great score
    • More characters are featured
    • More "money shots" (transformations, Mech-Tech, etc.)
    • A great lead-up to the Mexican stand-off/Sentinel Prime betrayal scenes

    The unfortunate thing about Prime v. Bonecrusher is that it's over before you know it.

    The shot of Sentinel in the foreground (driving towards the audience), followed by the 3 Autobots, and then the Dreads running in the background....

    Priceless.

    The only thing I didn't like was when they went back to Simmons and Dutch. I felt it kind of hurt the flow of the scene.

    Is this a joke...the Dreads Highway Sequence was a billion times better than the one in the first film!

    I'm going to do with the Dreads scene, simply because it was longer and more involved. If the Optimus vs Bonecrusher fight was that long, it would have won.

    I still prefer the first film's highway scene. Sure there wasn't a whole lot there, but it still is impressive to me.

    The one thing that I felt could have been done better in the 3rd film was we just suddenly see Sideswipe in his weaponized vehicle mode. As well, when they fly through the air, it looked like Bee did a flip with the main drivers area turning around. Made me wonder if Sam hit the ceiling there.

    I prefer the Autobots v.s. Bonecrusher as a highway chase, but holy fuck, THE MEXICAN SHOWDOWN.

    The chase with Bonecrusher was amazing and everything, but the chase with the Dreads was legitimately creepy as hell. The three of those things transforming and RUNNING down the Autobots while flipping cars put of their way really conveyed a full-on fear element imo. The slow motion & horror-esque music definitely helped add to the jaw dropping sense of that scene as well. Then there was the bonus cool factor of seeing the Autobots clicking in & out of battle mode and flipping around to avoid shit on the freeway. It's actually one of my top fav scenes out of all 3 movies.

    The best part of the chase is when Ironhide collides with the dreads and then shoots one in the face
