    This my first thread posted here. I'm not sure whether or not anyone else has posted something like this, but if they have, I'll know 'cause this'll probably be missing.

    Post here, what your favorite action sequence concerning the battles between the Autobots/Humans Decepticons was. I wouldn't be surprised if it was all of them. It is for me, mostly.



    1. Bumblebee vs. Barricade [Round I - Transformer Mode]
    2. Bumblebee vs. Barricade [Vehicle Mode]
    3. Bumblebee vs. Barricade [Round II - Transformer Mode]: I loved the over the shoulder flip he used and threw Barricade into the electrical conduits (poor Decepticon couldn't get up afterward. Haha!).
    4. Bumblebee/Mikaela vs. Brawl (or Devestator). [Ironhide: "Sam, get to the Building!"]

    5. Ratchet/Ironhide vs. Brawl/Starscream
    6. Optimus vs. Megatron
    7. U.S. Army vs. Blackout
    8. Bonecrusher vs. Optimus Prime
    9. Starscream vs. Human Piloted F-22 Jets

    As much as I liked the film (its finally been on a cinema in the UK BTW!!)

    I didn't really like any. Camera movement is too quick, timing is completely out (Takes a few seconds to get A10s in the air and help the military fight Scorpornok) timing between TFs fighting due to human storyline progression (BB and Barricade - takes ages for Barricade to get close to BB while they decide to get in yet he was right behind them a second ago) and finally everytime TFs start to fight, the camera seemed to immediately switch to a human.

    Out of the lot - Prime / Bonecrusher even if it is a bit too quick an end to BC.

    And don't get me wrong, I will be watching the film MANY times again (7.5 out of 10) :)

    Yeah I found a lot of the battle sequences to be incomprehensible alas. Many shots were far too quick and close to the action. I did love some bits of it though;

    - When Screamer blows up the Furby truck and the aftermath when Bumbles legs are blown off.

    - Brawl getting taken out by Bumblebee

    - Bonecrusher vs. Prime. I think this part really showed off the sheer scale and weight of the Transformers. Bonecrushers rugby tackle and the low camera angles really worked wonders here. The actual fighting just seemed so dirty and brutal as well. Just awesome.

    Love the Bonecrusher vs Prime, though it was way too short.

    Alot of the bits of Prime versus Megatron are simply amazing to watch, I love the part where their arms turn into guns and they start firing at each other... and when Prime grabs onto Megs and they fly through that building... awesome.

    I have to agree with you there, that is probably one of my favs for sure. Prime & BC was also insane. I dont think i have a fav..........they were all really good scenes.

    I have to concur that the camera moved too fast in many of the battle scenes.

    I have seen the film twice now - once in the US, sitting quite close to a very big screen. And I went to see the preview screening in the UK last night on one of the smaller screens of a multiplex - sitting about half way back.

    I'd definately say that its easier to see what is going on in these scenes sitting further back on a smaller screen.


    I loved the chase scene between Barricade and Bumblebee - especially when Barricade does the running transformation.

    I didnt like any of the frenzy scenes at all - although I can kinda understand his role in the movie.

    The fast camera battle scene's were my favorite! Though my all time favorite: Sam vs Megs, that was clever (and stupid) of Sam to do, but it only made sense. Though I think that cramming the allspark in Megs was a bad idea, since that could be how he returns? Prime's utter slaughter of BC was crazy good! And BB/Ratchet/Ironhide/Military finally takeing down Brawl.

    Though not fight scenes, I also enjoyed the vehicle mode scenes; particularly the Autobot/Sector seven convoy and BB's new Alt mode scene. (the only real commercial-y part) Though I absolutely loved BB's speaking (with a slight British accent no less!): "I wish to stay with the boy.":D

    The Scorponok attack was great, seeing how the military orchestrated their defeat of him. Optimus Prime fighting Bonecrusher and then tackling Megatron was awesome. I also think it was excellent how Bumblebee killed Brawl.

    I vote for the sequence where Starscream was fighting the F-22's in mid air.

    The last fight between Megatron, Optimus, Sam and the army was pretty cool. I felt a little sorry for Megs, getting blasted to hell by the army guys then being tripped by prime only to have the allspark shoved in him!

    Definitely 5 - Ratchet/Ironhide against brawl.

    Don't forget jazz was in that one too. The shot of Ironhide transforming in slow motion is one of the best shots in cinema history. And then they go and top it with Jazz's homage to kup. ooh it's good.

    Oh My God! I thought someone removed my post. Nice to know it's still here and that people replied to it. I totally wrote this down on the fly and forgot about most of other Action sequences! Loved to read the your opinions!

    I actually am one of the few that actually though SKorponok and Military was a favorite battle scene

    I think the mix of Steve Jablonsky's thumping score and all that military hardware and seeing how the military work together as a team was a very cool thing. Also the slow-mo scene of the 3 soldiers running away from Skorponok as he jumps in and out of the scene never fails to give me goosebumps no matter how many times I see it in the theater or trailers

    it wasnt my favourite but i do agree that it seems to be underated it was an awsome sequence and i think scorpy was the only 'con who we see kill on screen everything else was assumed altho actually Frenzy was a kill machine ignore me.

    The one that surprised me the most was Brawlvastator's fight, and that kinda pushed it up in terms of which is my favourite. :D 

    It could have very easily been truncated to the point of the Bonecrusher fight, but the way it was handled impressed me. He was -frighteningly unstoppable-, and I really enjoyed the fact that it took 4 Autobots supported a small human army to finally bring him down.

    To be honest, he actually lived up to his apparently-typo'd name, as far as I'm concerned. :)
