    My goodness that scene was perfect.

    The dreads running and causing chaos, the stealth force autobots, Dino's ninjaness, the ass on the edge of my seat music playin in the background. That was one really well done scene.

    Yes, it was one of the best scenes in the movie...........although, I have to question what exactly were the dreads planning to do to/with SP....certainly not kill him....

    Maybe they were just trying to kill the Autobots protecting him so the Dreads and Sentinel could leave.

    It's also possible the Dreads were there to cause a distraction to give Sentinel his chance to backstab and run away when no one was paying attention [which he did].

    Other possibility is that they were there to serve as his bodyguards, taking down anyone that tried to stop Sentinel.

    Yeah I'm convinced the Dreads were just meant to be a distraction/diversion

    OR...

    if they actually made it to Sentinel, give the illusion that they captured him so that the Autobots wouldn't get wise to his betrayal.

    I think another reason is that, just prior to that, Sam and Simmons had just found out about the Decepticons stealing the pillars. So the Dreads were probably sent to stop them from spilling all that they had learned.

    Not for me...I think it suffered from the usual Bay problems. Weird cuts and focus. I actually forgot they were chasing Sentinel. :( 

    But man o man o man o man o man that Bumblebee transformation was sweet! <3

    That's what I thought until I watched the movie a second time. Even though they pluck Simmons out of the car and toss him, it never really appeared that they were -after- the Autobots. If anything, it seemed to be that they were trying to outrace the Autobots to Sentinel since they kept running forward even after jumping over the Autobots and were only tossing cars at them to, what it seemed like, block them. Just my take on it anyway.

    I loved the part where Sideswipe and Bumblebee flip over in the air still in stealth force mode, looked so cool.

    Shame we never got to see Dino's stealth force mode, gotta wonder if that was down to Ferrari.

    That was probably, by far my favorite scene of all in the entire movie series.

    The scene itself was great, and the music is amazing. Really, everyone thought Michael Bay was going to deliver a scene like that in the first film, then in the second, and now finally he has.

    This scene was awesome... until I thought about it/saw it a second time.
    The Dreads were evidently after Sentinel, who not only disappeared for the scene (which just ended up making the Dreads look like they were just blindly running for no reason) but contradicted that notion by revealing he was working for the Cons the whole time.

    I think they were headed to the same location Sentinel was headed to. Instead of Bumblebee/Dino/Sideswipe being Sentinel's backup, it was actually the Dreads that were backing him up.

    Same. At first I thought they were mangled cars but then when I rewatched I noticed they were just half transformed.

    was that Dino that jumped into the air and throwed his chains and hooks into the back of one of the dreads?

    I was like oh my he's a bad mofo !
