    IMO, Mikaela was a lot better and actually kicked some ass.

    Carly just got captured and got Megatron off his ass.

    Mikaela is brave enough to tow Bumblebee into the Brawl battle.

    Carly only went Ultra Magnus "I can't deal with this now" on Sam when faced his hero life amongst fighting robots. She was like OMGZ I want a normal life Sam !..oh yeah..and playing Ms Smarmy for Megatron.

    Won't deny that Mikaela brought useful skills to the table, but she loses points for her standoffishness.

    Mikaela was a lot better. She was actually useful. Carly was just a damsel in distress and the only thing she did was get Megatron off his ass to fight Sentinel. So yeah, Mikaela is better IMO.

    mikaela is prettier in my opinion :)  and she fit better with sam.
    i dont know, mikaela and sam were more believable than carly and sam.
    carly doesn't seem like sam's type or something...i dont know. i liked mikaela.
    cause she was really pretty, but there was also a side u didnt know about her : the motorcycles, and fixing cars.

    He wants the issue to be settled by having Mikaela and Carly wrestle (possibly naked) in chocolate pudding and see who comes out the winner.

    :lolol 

    Honestly I don't know. Mikela was a mechanic and quite useful but Carly told Megatron off.......hmmmmmmmmm.

    It's a draw. They both loose to Mearing.

    Mikaela.

    She was a stronger character.

    Even when she didn't know what was up with Sam, she still followed him (when he was being "chased" by Bumblebee). She didn't cut and run when they were being attacked by Frenzy and was the one who fought him off. When Sam was freaking out, she quickly figured out a way to get Bumblebee to safety. And she was willing to compromise her own safety to drive him back into the fight.

    And that's just the first movie. In the second, she's willing fly across the country to help Sam when he's in trouble and she stays by his side all through out Egypt.

    She never tried to keep him from the Autobots. She seemed like she would hang out with them. And she was willing to face danger right next to Sam. That's why I can't buy the lame excuse of "she left" in DOTM. Freakin' please.

    In isn't that Carly's bad, but IMO, she doesn't fit into the movieverse the way Mikaela does. And Carly didn't seem like she wanted Sam spending time with the Autobots. She didn't seem accepting that Sam had a connection to them. She spent the movie as the damsel in distress. The one proactive thing she did was go to Megatron and get him back on his feet - funny how that line sounded so much more like something Mikaela would say though. :lol

    ALL OF THIS EXACTLY!

    Carly was all about being the damsel in distress, didn't look like she could dress down and get her hands and feet dirty. Plus her lips were way too big. Sorry, but they bugged me!

    Mikaela by all accounts seems the better character, but Carley by far was the more tolerable of the two. Maybe I'm biased because she's British but everytime Megan Fox speaks, I want to pimp slap her because her accent drives me the entirely wrong kind of crazy.

    I put Carley not being as 'useful' as Mikaela due to two things: Carley was a last minute edition to the movie, but also because she's a different kind of person. Part-time model and/or Civil Servant against tomboy mechanic. Also, its one thing to drive into a fight with the protection (such as it is) of a car and a giant robot on the back and another to walk through a raging battlefield and look Megatron in the eye and call him out on being a pussy.

    That took guts too folks, maybe more than Mikaela's trick with Bumblebee.

    but keep in mind that most of carly scenes and most of her dialogue were written for Mikaela at first before she was removed
