    Yeah, 81% of critics liked it and 90% of the audience. You'd think it ended up with Bay's RT numbers the way you spin it.

    I saw Vol.2 twice actually and can't wait to grab it on Blu-ray.

    That's the most probable outcome. The movies usually opened around that number. Whether the movie will have strong legs would depend on the promotional campaign and the word of mouth, because that's what puts people butts in the seats (Star Wars VII, Suicide Squad). AOE suffered major loss in the following weeks, because it simply hadn't met people's expectations. The general audience gave it A- on Cinemascore (compared to DOTM A mark), which means that it did not deliver what they wanted. People are more willing to listen to a friend's advice than an internet reviewer. Blaming lack of the success on critics won't change that your product apparently didn't deliver on the basic level that resonates with the casual movie goer. You don't need to appease the critics, but you must appease the audience. Beauty and the Beast didn't receive starry reviews (76%, it wasn't even certified fresh on RT), but it was a smash hit with the audience.

    I sincerely doubt any TLK screenings have happened yet. When the screenings do happen, it's this franchise's destiny to endure a critical beatdown. The extent of the beatdown will depend on the runtime.

    I hope those reviews posted are for Baywatch and not Pirates 5.

    @Plove125 Please don't PM spoilers. You never know who's gonna leak what, and where it will spread. I would rather not run into spoilers wherever I'm not looking for them, thank ye very much.

    It's why I read reviews and check the chatter instead of just looking at the Meter number. Critics were right to rough up something like Your Highness but after reading the reviews I figured the flaws were the sort of flaws that would add to the entertainment for me. A bad movie for sure but the sort of bad movie enjoyment I sometimes look for.

    I read the CGI wasn't complete for robots, but how was was the Voice Acting was it complete or looked like some voice acting wasn't completed yet? Last time I heard Michael Bay was still deciding who to voice Hot Rod and I haven't heard anything about Drift.

    I think that only Megatron has a voice from the Decepticons.

    When I read reviews it's usually to get more information on what the movie is about or does it have something I may find interesting. Reducing a movie to a yes or no vote throws under the bus works that are imperfect, but creative. Probably the reason why we have so many sequels and remakes, people like safe bets.

    SO.... I don't think this is asking too much, considering what you've already said..Do the decpticons (not counting megatron) speak and have even minor characterization? or are they bland?

    If there was an early screening of the movie, wouldn't it have made front page news?
