    So, in your opinion, what is the money shot of the film.....the one that just makes you go wow and takes the film up a notch.

    For me it has to be the screaming woman on the street during the city fight sequence....where I believe Ironhide jumps over her and then fires his cannons. I've seen the flick twice and that one slo-mo shot has me saying...."WOW". Absolutely amazing!!!

    Stascream attacking the other jets was the money shot for me. I just thought that was really well done, and it captured perfectly what a transformer can do.

    "I've got you boy" then he hop scothes down the building with the nimblness of an Eva only to be ripped aside by Megatron as both tumble to the ground. Then on top of that Megatron flicks a human with the remark "disgusting!' That was my wow moment.

    As before, I'm sticking with the Barricade/Bumblebee chase when the rock music "pretty handsome awkward" first hits...lasts about 10 or so seconds.

    As soon as I started reading this thread that was the scene I was thinking, and you already said it. In fact, I took my Ironhide toy and Brawl toy and showed people a demonstration of the scene at work. If I was going to say anything else it would be Primes merciless Bonecrusher killing.

    For me it was Barricade vs Bumblebee. Right after Makaela and Sam jump inside BB, Barricade transforms to cop car and speeds towards the camera.

    An abolutely awesome shot that you don't expect and reminds of scenes from the G1 cartoon.

    The movie could have used more instances where the bots transformed back and forth. Seems like once they transformed they were stuck in that mode for a while :(  My only big complaint.

    Y'know, you really shouldn't use the words "money shot" and "screaming woman" in the same post unless you're describing something completely different....

    I'm so glad I wasn't the only one thinking that... and even more glad that I wasn't the first one to post it. :thumb 

    For me, one of the funniest shots was "Autobots in the Back Yard" and hearing Prime say "my bad." It was almost like an updated version of Slag's "excuse me!" shot from the original movie.

    In terms of "money shots" however, for me it'd be a tie between Prime pulling up to Sam/Mikeala and transforming and the scene at the observatory where Prime charges toward the screen shouting "Autobots, roll out!" :cool:

    or you could get your mind out the gutter for a few moments :) 


    I'd say the scene for me was the introduction of the autobots as well, when prime came out of the fog = win

    The money shot for me was when the Camaro concept car came out. That is one beautiful car and you know it's Bumblebee to boot.

    But they know me down here... :D 

    The part where Bumblebee scans the '07 Camaro and rolls up all full of attitude is a good one too.
