    .


    For me, outside one or two impressive transformations, a lower key one really. But it was, without question, the moment I realised I needed to stop worrying about Bay - in the prologue towards the end of Prime's narration.

    We see the flaming Allspark, ablaze like some translucent spinning meteorite headed directly for our atmosphere as Cullen says the words in deep bass vocal:

    "... earth ..... but it was already too late."

    over the shifting metallic title.

    I think for me, weird as it might sound, that was the greatest few seconds I had watching this flick, and the realisation that the power and the mythos of TF would not be lost.

    The tone was awesome, the operatic, choral score was giving me chills; it was everything I'd wanted from an opening sequence and more.

    So your most awe inspiring moments please? No matter how long or brief.

    I'm undecided over 3 scenes...

    1. Bumblebee standing so heroic as Sam walks up to him; and

    2. The Autobots crashing landing on earth.

    3. Optimus and the Autobots were examining Sam's great grandfather's glasses and then saying "freedom is the right of all sentient beings".

    4. Optimus struggling to get up...when he says, "its just you and me, Megatron" and the "one shall stand and one shall fall speech".

    Optimus stole the show for me! XD

    Definitely, definitely Starscream vs. the other F22s. That scene in particular had me in goosebumps, literally, from frame one. THAT is how transforming should be used in battle. It made me think that maybe, possibly, a live-action Macross could work, at least from a choreography angle.

    Also, the Bumblebee vs. Barricade rumble/chase, especially Barricade's running transformation. I just wish they would've shown more of the fight.

    For me:

    Jazz's transformation before jumping onto Brawl.
    Starscream's attack on the F22's.
    Ironhide's flipping transformation.
    All of Blackout's transformation scenes...he was just badass!
    The highway chase/transformation/battle sequence.

    Those are just a few...there are sooo many more!

    Parts that i thought were REALLY cool, where when BB slams into barricade, gets the kids out of there, Barricade starts to run after him, jumps into car form and takes off.

    Also another is when Blackout lands, shoots, gets a few things shot at him, jumps backflips and turns into the heli- and takes off.

    Starscream fighting the F-22s was AWSOME

    AND the best to me was simply when they are fighting in the city, and Optimus FINALLY shows up threw the ally.
    Where was he anyways?

    Barricade interrogating Sam - that was awesome seeing he face right up in Sam's face yelling at him - I wish that scene had gone on longer.

    The Optimus Prime introduction was pretty damn cool too.

    Is that the part where he jump/transforms over Sam's head? If you look carefully I think Ironhide either uses a car as a shield or throws it at Blackout who shoots it.

    That whole part from BB walking back from trashing Barricade, to his "Any more questions" all through the Autobots arrival, reformatting, and introduction, was one of the most awesome sequences ever!


    That scene with them hanging out on the dam had some great lines- my second favorite because it was just Autobot banter and they all looked SO FREAKING REAL. Especially Ratchet- its like the Hulk, for some reason CG just looks better in broad daylight.


    On that note, the scene under the bridge where Jazz is talking about saving BB was great too.

    Agreed. I especially liked the music that was playing during the fall to Earth.

    I agree with the original poster that when the title came up after Prime's line I thought "oh shit it's on" and was further assured when Blackout transformed.

    I NEED to see it again. Because right now I can't pinpoint a small part of the film, for me I just feel like after BB starts following Sam on his mom's bike there is like a straight hour of pure AWSOMENESS the highlight of which is the arrival of the Autobots. Like others have said, the landing, the score, the introductions, just perfect IMO.

    The best parts for me are when we hear Cullen narrate the beginning. I was thinking that HE STILL GOT IT!! Another was the whole introduction of the rest of the Autobots. The music right up to the point where Optimus transforms right in front of Sam and Mikeala was just pure goosebumped awesome. Then it was Bonecrusher's transformation. That has to be one of the most innovative and purely mind blowing ways of showing off a transformation sequence. The only thing that was missing were the speed lines and the big giant Decepticon symbol in the back as he does an anime pose :p  The last part had to be Prime's big entrance into the final battle. Him just showing up fashionably late, transforming and doing the 'BRING IT' pose.
