    In Starscreams initial assault on the city. I mean he surprised the Autobots, Bumblebee lost his legs...someone...a supporting military member, civilian...someone should have died. It (to me) would have made Starscream a little meaner...just my opinion..anyone agree?

    Who's to say that no one died?

    Sure we don't see many onscreen deaths (particularly humans, though we do get a few from Frenzy, Scorps, and Blackout)...but to assume that with all that destruction in the city that no one was killed...that's a stretch.

    Well, what I'm saying is for the movie effect. I'm not saying that thousands of people didn't die in the background...but we didn't see it...What I'm saying is it reminded me of the GI Joe cartoon when all the lasers and missiles are flying around...and no one get shot. Just for dramatic effect...

    Bay wanted human deaths known, but he didn't want a gory flick.

    Megs killed a guy, there were lotsa limp bodies in the background and a lot of people were thrown around.

    Donelly was the name of the guy who got impaled. He said "English, dude... English" to Fig just before Scorponok attacked.

    Prime and Megs flew through a building, Bonecrusher rollerskated through a bus and sent a couple of cars flying off the highway, Prime got blasted into the side of an occupied office building and fell on a crowded sidewalk....it just keeps going.

    this movie has a huge death toll, they just don't focus on the people dying.

    A lot of people died, just not in a gory way I mean the unlucky guy who got shiscabobed by Scorpinock didn't even show blood I think and it was quick. But yeah OP and Megs killed many people when they went through the buildings even if not on purpose. I'm pretty sure that car killed the driver of it when it came to life. Also I think that guy died after being flicked into the car by Megatron, the flick itself probably crushed a good part of his internal organs and shattered his spine, the impact with the car finished crushing the insides and heart probably. If he did live without a severed spine and massive brain damage, he deserves a metal or 10.

    Ok. My whole point to this thread was the first attack in the city by Starscream...the one where they were calling for the rapters for air support when they were trying to find a way to get the allspark out of the city.Starscream hit them hard and fast. I wasn't talking about the whole movie, of course, the guy scorpnok killed, the guys on Air Force One, etc...I'm talking about 1 specific scene when there looks like there was a lot of damage. I didn't want carnage, just like one semi-important supporting member to set the tone... There's nothing like the good guys coming back from a loss of a teammate. Plus it would have made the bad guys worse and make you care just a little more. Bay did it well in Armaggedon where just about everyone bit it.

    True. And the writers can easily bring that up if they wanted to make the Autobots look bad in the eyes of human society.

    Cus, y'know, without it, we'd be kind of dead.

    Also, in the city battle, you saw soldiers visibly carrying wounded or dead S7 agents to safety.
