Ok so now the verdict is out. DOTM is out. General audience loved it, G1 fans are divided over it and the critics hate it. What factors in your opinion prevented it from... ah you read the title. My opinions: -The production team (script writers) did not think 3 movies ahead when they made the first one. -Editing problem. How did scene A get to scene B? -The tie ups with companies. For example, Ferrari for sure insisted on using the name Dino instead of Mirage. -Inconsistencies like portraying Megs to be way much stronger than Prime in the first movie then in ROTF Prime can take on Megs and 2 other decepticons. Then on DOTM he kills Megs in 5 seconds. -The dead then getting resurrected again storyline. I mean people really were asking "why can't they use the shard or the matrix to revive everyone who died?". -Way too much human involvement. In the first movie Blackout was really invincible against human weapons in Qatar but in DOTM Shockwave was getting hurt by M4 guns by Epps and his mercs not unless they upgraded the ammos for the said weapons. -Unexplained disappearances of some characters during crucial scenes. -The awesome but always short battle scenes with major decepticons like soundwave or shockwave getting pawned easily. -Autobots rarely getting killed in action except for Jazz and Prime (resurrected). -Prime becoming too powerful against decepticons during the course of the movie. -Re-using of scenes especially in ROTF. -Bot to bot interaction was really minimal therefore no characterization. Any other thoughts?
