    Nope. Well, I guess it depends on how movie 3 goes, and whether the movie-going public wants more.

    Maybe last for a while. Take a break, revisit with something & someone new after a few more years.

    If Michael Bay directs, then yes it should be the last one.
    I'm sure under his direction the movie will be worst than ROTF where in he will doom the Transformers move franchise.

    I think that if they tie it together with TF1 and ROTF into a kind of trilogy, then it would work. If a TF4 is discussed, I think it ought to be a different storyline idea.

    Maybe a break is what it needs *shrug*

    In all honesty, I'm just happy with more Transformers movies ^_^

    TF3 should be the last in the trilogy. Then in a couple of years, a new directer should take the stage to make a new version

    If Bay directs, it should end then and there.

    If some one like James Cameron did/ will do, then continue on.

    No way. Why couldn't Transformers have a long legacy of films? Star Trek did it and is still going. Potter will end in a few films just because they're all based from the books. Transformers are so unsteady on TV. We get short runs on series like 3 Seasons of Beast Wars, 2 Seasons of Beast Machines, 3 Seasons of Animated, and 4 other series (RiD, Armada, Energon, Cybertron) in huge lumps. G1 was about the most balanced with nearly 100 after 4 seasons but considering one season had more than 40 episodes and the last had 3, so go figure. If people can't it right with them and even it out, then let the films take it from here. A billion and half dollars over 2 productions can't be that misleading.

    I'm going to say a definitive YES.

    Sure, I have my misgivings and dislikes about this particular continuity, but there's also a lot for me to like (certain characters, the face of Optimus) & even love (Cullen's aged Prime, the fact I can enjoy this continuity fully with my wife & son).

    No, my 'YES' comes from the fact I feel a trilogy gives a very solid feeling to a movie venture. I HATE it when movie try to continue past the third film mark. I'm struggling to find an exception before I type this, because I know the moment I say it someone will provide an example otherwise, but I cannot think of one decent film that came after a third venture in movie-making for any particular series.

    Well, since you're practically asking us to, I'll give it a shot. Surely at least one of the following should meet your criteria for an exception...

    About half of the Star Trek movies since 3.
    Live Free and Die Hard
    TMNT
    Revenge of The Sith

    I'm sure it's possible to make a bigger/better list, but I'm having trouble thinking of that many series that continue past 3 films in the first place. :)

    Deep down, my conscience wants me to say yes, stop after three.

    But I've got a lot of hope and a lot of faith that these movies can live up their potential of being a real exception. They've broken plenty of records and exceeded amazing expectations already and their numbers are fantastic.

    And they've got a fanbase thats had three decades to 'gestate'.

    Which was the trouble I was having too. :) 

    I couldn't stand Live Free or Die Hard. If anything its a very recent, modern, current example of why such things shouldn't happen.

    The Star Wars ones, do they really fit the example? You've got the original trilogy, then a prequel trilogy, and hopefully later a sequel trilogy. The trifecta of trilogies, so to speak.

    TMNT had more than three movies? I never even saw the third one, though.

    Star Trek? Yeah, I guess those six with the original Enterprise crew could be considered a pertinent example by many, given those films popularity. Even though I only cared for three of them, I'll have to accept that example. But then, does that one set of films as an example warrant the bypass-the-trilogy route?

    But this is all me with my preferences for trilogies. I totally get those of us fans that love this Transformer universe with a passion in comparison to others of our fandom wanting this saga to continue indefinitely.

    I just hope for the sake of the Bayformers it doesn't go the route of Spiderman with a bastardizing piece of hoopla on the third film (thought final, like it should be), then getting a fourth installment announced (ugh).

    Or a three season Shattered Glass television series, or an ongoing Shattered Glass comic book series, or a retail Shattered Glass series line of toys, or an anything that continues it Shattered Glass series of whatever. :D

    No. TF3 should be followed by a long line of films in the franchise.
    At least then they will have gone through so many directors and creative people that everyone may finally find their perfect TF film somewhere along the way.

    I would definitely hope for more, thought not necessarily in linear order.

    The 4th could be a prequel, telling how the wars started on Cybertron, or how Prime and Megs came to be, etc. Or even fast forward to an even more distant future and tell the story of a future generation of Transformers .. and so on.

    I would wish for it to continue as long as feasibly possible, but I only hope it will branch out into different time periods and settings, not just on Earth and about Sam growing up.
    Can't speak for others, but I wouldn't want future movies to be about Sam in his 30's, then 40's or then 50's.

    A new trilogy of prequels about their origins (a la Star Wars), a totally new generation in a different era (a la Star Trek), or simply dedicated backstories for a particular character (a la X Men Origins : Wolverine).
