Which Transformers had the best Fight
The forest battle and Optimus vs. Sentinel are my favorites.
Forest fight obviously. Other great fights were Optimus vs Sentinel featuring Megatron, Hound's Hong Kong Hustle, and Autobots vs Brawl.
Starscream's insane jet run was pretty rad too. The town battle in TLK, while short, was fun.
It's sad because nothing they have put out since the forest fight has ever come close. When they totally could make a fight just as epic. Coreographically the only fights to have come close are sentinels and lockdowns. And both are not focused on enough.
I was so irritated when TLK didn't have good fight scenes especially when they had a new cinematographer who shot the fight scenes in a different style (which would have led for a better angle of the transformers fighting). But instead it was just the same old "shoot at a faceless enemies in the distance" fights for Bay to save the studio goddamn money instead of making somehing worth seeing...
The best fight is Jazz, Rachet and Ironhide VS Brawl
There was some absolutely beautiful fight choreography in Dark of the Moon, but a lot of it was quick. At one point Bumblebee steps back to dodge an attack from Sentinel Prime, transforms and reverses, transforms mid-air, lands and shoots at Sentinel. At the same time, Sideswipe jumps onto Sentinel, who blocks him and throws him to the ground, while Ratchet is dodging and attacking from the other side.
The camera angle is perfect and never changes, but the entire sequence lasts no more than 5 seconds. You barely have any time to really process the awesomeness.
This seems to be the rule.
I think OPrime Vs SPrime was the best one on one, lots going on and lots of banter. Prime Vs Lockdown just loses out because there was slightly less investment, and Mark Ryan's great and all, but come on, Nimoy, baby! TF1 Prime Vs Megs is a close 3rd too.
For group battles, the Forest fight is definitely a high point of the series (rotf has so many high points.. why is it so shit?! Is it shit? I'm sure it was shit..?) but Everyone Vs Brawl is really really the kind of thing I like to see. Decepticons so tough it takes concentrated teamwork, not a quick spin-strike combo, to take them down. It had better geographical awareness than the forest fight too! The mexican standoff is pretty fun, but mainly because it used the 3 best looking Autobots. The fight itself was pretty one sided.
Okay, since everyone has seen the Forest Battle I decided to show you a slightly different version of it!
