    Ok, so this movie has a series of faults, but what make us think that Hasbro or Bay are going to listen to our complains?

    Well we should start a covert group and have Bay assassinated.
    I think that will definitely help.

    None, as long as the film makes a buttload of money, then complaints mean jack to either of them. Frankly, the only hope is that parents are smart enough to not bring their kids to see the movie, but that would actually require parents to, you know, parent their chidlren...and that ain't happening.

    Complaints are very useful bec. they improve the health of the complainer. It is good to have some outlet.

    Its not like they listened to anything we did prior. The only thing hasbro will listen to is if the toys arent selling

    In most cases I would suggest a lack of braincells.

    I had something similar happen to me today when I went to the 12:30 showing. A couple of adults and a kid, probably about 6 or 7 years old.

    He got quiet once the movie started, but about an hour into it he was ready to go home and kept saying "I want to leave". After about the 4th time I turned around to the adults and said "please give him what he wants". :)

    I had some 6 year old behind me talking too. I was at the 12:01am showing. Why are people taking little kids to movies at 12:00? He wasn't talking all that much, but when he had to go to the bathroom everyone had to know
    (he had to go several times).

    Of course they'll take some complaints into account: Bay changed Megatron's head while in pre-production on the first film did he not? And for the second, did they not try to make Prime more heroic, remove Mark Ryan's Bumblebee voice, increase robot screentime, give Starscream more dialogue etc. You can argue the large amount of characters with wheels for feet was due to the positive reception to Bonecrusher.

    Prime kicked ass, and we got more robots. Weren't those the 2 biggest complaints from the first?

    ^^^ I agree with you.

    I don't mind people stating their opinions about the film (to a certain degree) but it bothers me when people just start ripping this thing to shreds. It's understandable though, but the way I see it all TF fans should be damn happy that we have a kick ass, live action movie franchise to enjoy. How often in the cartoon series do we see Optimus Prime ***SPOILERS***without mercy just pull the trigger on some helpless con? I feel these movies are a very special thing.

    but complaining about complainers makes you a complainer?

    Baby steps. Next movie they'll do stuff, but not have any lines. After that, if any of them are still alive, they'll talk, but not do stuff.

    it kinda sucked at times. the storyline destroyed the transformers continuity by making the Decepticons seem weak and discombobulated. A lot of explaining was needed.
