    Did anyone feel like DOTM was Michael Bay trying to recreate TDK. I was thinking about it and came up with this:

    A: Save the girl
    TDK - Batman runs out to save Rachel and goes to save her and not Dent
    DOTM - Sam goes to Chicago to save Carly

    B: Location
    TDK - Primarily filmed in Chicago
    DOTM - Half the movie took place in a war zone in Chicago

    C: The Music
    TDK - The Dark Knight Soundtrack - I'm Not A Hero - YouTube
    DOTM - Transformers 3 D.O.T.M Soundtrack - 14. "It's Our Fight" - Steve Jablonsky - YouTube

    Call me crazy, but something seems oddly familiar.

    D: The Ending
    TDK: Batman becomes an outlaw and has to face his new "life" on the run
    DOTM: The Autobots are stranded on Earth and have to face their new life with there home destroyed

    Anyone want to discuss?

    I'd say it is a bit of a reach.
    Though there is a villain that pushes Prime to his limits.

    "Save the girl" is a pretty standard movie contrivance, the Chicago thing could be chalked up to coincidence, I guess. And I don't have time to compare the songs ATM, so no comment there.

    The place that the Autobots hanger was is the same bank used in the Dark Knight...I think.

    Regardless. You can never compare DOTM to TDK, Becauset hey aren't the same genre. TDK is a pyschological movie about one man's vigilantism to clean up his city.

    DOTM is a war movie with little charecterization, and loud big explosions.
