    ...For me that is.

    There were two that after all that was said and done, bothered me the most.

    One was that after all the work that they had done, and how (somehow) 6 of the primes couldn't defeat the fallen, the primes decided that after stealing the matrix from the fallen, to hide it only miles away from the very machine that it activates. Why would they do that exactly?

    And two would be that when optimus met Sam in private why didn't Sam tell optimus about his all-spark fragment? Optimus had just told him that decepticons had gone through a great deal to retrieve the only 'known' piece and had done so successfully. Why wouldn't he just be like "hey guess what optimus?.." I mean it seems relatively important.

    Anyways, what do you guys think of this/these? And what are your biggest beefs with the movie?

    1. The Primes were lazy to walk any further than that distance.

    2. Sam forgot.

    My biggest beef with the film was all those Decepticons getting taken down by the military.

    1. Because they wanted to
    2. Sam probably told Bumblebee, who contacted Optimus

    Good points. Just more examples of bad story-telling. I just didn't like the way Sam talked to Optimus in that scene in the graveyard, "you won't give me one day!?" - who the feck are you, thinking you can talk to OP like that!

    Anyways, I agree with earlier post that the biggest plothole / flaw / thingy was the military taking down D-Cons, when Blackout took out an army base in one go in TF1.

    I wouldn't call those plot holes. Poor decisions maybe, but there's no real "hole" there.
