    Other than the O'Reilly interview of Simmons no anti-Autobot sentiment.

    In fact if we go by Simmons being filthy rich the people might as well be pro-Autobot.

    The US congress was more like blackmailed into exiling the Autobots.

    I think its just a scrapped idea :(  or just some misinformaton campaign as Shockwave being the main villiain and the Wreckers being really important ._.

    I guess it's one more casualty of the pacing of the film.

    i remember some scenes filmed that was supposed to have the twins in it, and if i remember correctly the Autobots go home signs were all over the place...maybe that side of the movie was portrayed with the twins...but they cut them out.

    well, I think they MAYBE HAD a cool story, but the cuts were made wrong, edited out the twins parts and stuff stayed like there is, some parts are strange and stuff... I dunno, xD but I enjoyed the movie anyways :)

    I was wondering about that as tey weren't seen at all in the movie

    an early theory of the movie was that decepticons disguised as Autobots slaughter humans making them want the Autobots to go home

    I would liked to have seen some protestors or something. I was expecting a public outcry.

    I really think this film was meant to be 3-3 1/2 hours long. Would explain all the missing elements.

    Autobots saved the Sun in RotF. Telling them to go home then would be like shipping the troops to Antarctica after winning a war. Doesn't make much sense.

    But Congress passing legislation to exile the Autobots after their former leader lets half of Cybertron through the back door in DC to have their way with the planet? That makes perfect sense.

    Some things don't need protests for Washington to get moving. War is one them.
