    I was watching earlier interviews with Shia Labeouf and he gets excited when he mentions how many action set pieces there are. Originally during the big Rated R fiasco, he was interviewed saying that there is so much action in it, there are 12 set pieces with 4 of them being the biggest. And then in the most recent interviews, he says there are 20 set pieces.

    So how many are there??

    Honestly speaking, in my eyes, I don't really break up the action sequences into little sections but if I had to name the action sequences off top of my head, it would be the big ones:

    1) Blackout vs Military
    2) Skorponok vs Military
    3) Bumblebee vs Barricade
    4) Prime vs Bonecrusher
    5) And the big city battle in the end



    But since Shia mentioned 12 of them with 4 being the big ones, it would be the most obvious in chronological order:

    1) Blackout vs Military (big one #1)
    2) Frenzy vs Air Force One Security
    3) Skoroponok vs Military (big one #2)
    4) Barricade vs Bumblebee/Frenzy vs Sam
    5) Bumblebee and Sector 7
    6) Bonecrusher vs Prime (big one #3)
    7) Frenzy vs 4 humans in Hoover Dam
    8) Ratchet, Ironhide, Jazz vs. Devastator (big one #4)
    9) Starscream vs Ratchet and Ironhide
    10) Bumblebee vs Devastator
    11) Prime vs Megatron
    12) Starscream vs F22 Raptors

    And then later he updated his response being 20 action set pieces. So now I'm thinking that this includes EVERY SINGLE scene that had some sort of action in it, small or big:

    1) Blackout vs Military
    2) Frenzy vs Air Force One Security
    3) Skorponok vs Military
    4) Barricade interogating Sam
    5) Car chase between Barricade and Bumblee ending with robot rumble
    6) Frenzy vs Sam and Mikaela
    7) Sector 7 and Autobots
    8) Sector 7 capturing Bumblebee
    9) Megatron being freed starting with Starscream shooting missiles, ending with Megatron breaking from captivity
    10) Optimus Prime vs Bonecrusher
    11) Frenzy vs Humans in Hoover Dam
    12) Starscream Shoots a Missille at Furby Truck
    13) Ironhide, Ratchet and Jazz vs Devastator
    14) Starscream landing and shooting at Ironhide and Ratchet and then flying away
    15) Optimus Prime vs Megatron
    16) Bumblebee vs Devastator
    17) Megatron chasing Sam
    18) Military vs Blackout
    19) Starscream vs F22 Raptors
    20) F22 Raptors taking out Megatron

    I think that should sum it up. So if you were to think of Sam's original comment about 12 set pieces with 4 of them being the biggest, I guess he was referring to the 2nd list. And then later he updated his comment, stating it was 20 set pieces, I guess that would be the 3rd list.

    Did I miss anything?
