    I didn't see anything for Sideswipe. Obviously this guy deserves some love.

    Despite not being voiced by André Sogliuzzo, James Remar did a good job. I hardly noticed any difference. He brought out a character that had the aura of a badass and a killer he was designed to be.

    Who thought that close up shot of him was uber fantastic?

    Come on! Show how much you love him!

    Multiple lines beyond ROTF and not just lines but one liners and lines with character like we have been expecting of Sideswipe? Bay listened and delivered. Sideswipe's character was never going to outshine Prime or Bee, however they gave him enough substance and character to stand out from the crowd just as fans had been asking for since ROTF.

    What lines did he have? I like James Remar from Dexter, so he has the perfect voice for Sideswipe

    Having only seen the movie once...I cannot quote exactly, however if Im not mistaken he has has more "words" than Bumblebee. I do remember some his lines, especially during the highway section of the film, having some character.

    I completely agree....It was about time Sideswipe got some lovin!!! He was a complete and total BAD@$$ as usual!!!!! He is just such an awesome design too "skating" around on his feet... especially when he just spins around and starts skating backwards while still facing off with the dreads!!!

    Sideswipe is one of my favourite Autobots. Not a massive amount of characterisation, but whever he is on screen, he is just awesome.

    Sideswipe is by far my fav Autobot of the movieverse. Prime is close behind him.

    Sideswipe was as always awesome. I hoped he would do a little
    more, but I'm satisfied.

    He had some cool one liners and was awesome whenever he was doing something in robot mode. Still not keen on him being a convertible but.

    It is indeed about time the guy got some attention, I was ecstatic when I ass he didn't get caught like a chump (at least I didn't see him there) and got some good combat sequence time. Now if only his figure had some paint.....

    he was nice, and the close up was amazing, I really like DOTM Sideswipe... he was WAY better portrayed than in ROTF :)

    What happened to him in the final battle? I don't remember him in the Chicago fight, maybe i'm forgetting some scenes since there was so much going on.

    They made him an actual character, which was great. Plus he's just badass.
