    So true though, while awesome in alt-form, their proto-forms looked badass as they hardcore booked it.

    The best scene in the entire DOTM and also I love it better than the Forest Fight

    When I saw the Freeway chase, I was like.....now this is what Transformers is all about. This has always been what a live action transformers film is about.

    As soon as I saw the highway chase scene, I got the sense of deja vu with the Bumblebee/Barricade chase back in the 2007 movie. I got all fired up and excited!

    Absolutely agree, this was an amazing scene... and it put the TF1 version with Bonecrusher to shame. Those things sprinting down the freeway was creepy as hell, and SO well done. Especially the distant shots and rear view mirror shots. Possibly my favorite action sequence from all the movies.

    YES!!

    I just seen the fiLm, this scene was well planned.

    Did anyone pay close attention to the noise a dread made when he took down the free-way sign?

    It's Bonecrushers noise when he finally places his feet on the pavement in TF1!!! :drool:

    Doesn't make it any less of an awesome scene. Yeah, Bay reused some footage that HE shot in a previous movie - nothing new. He reused shots from Pearl Harbour in ROTF as well, he reused the entire arrival scene from TF1 in ROTF too, and he might as well reused several shots from The Rock, Bad Boys & Armageddon considering how many scenes he recreated from them frame-for-frame in the TF movies. But whatever, until he's ripping off someone other than himself, it's not some big conspiracy that bored YouTuber's have uncovered here.

    It was awesome, and probably had the funniest part of the film in it (when Sam's screaming)

    We had to wait a bit for a proper chase sequence, but what we got was most definitely worth the wait. Easily one of, if not thé best scenes in the entire movie, and the climax for it with Bumblebee transforming around Sam was simply mindblowingly good!

    Agreed! Though, after he was done screaming, just saying "Okay, back to NEST" just wasn't the line I was expecting. Maybe if it was "Never do that again. Back to NEST". OR, if he was about to throw up, like Miko in Prime. That would have been freaking sweet!

    Everyone in the theater was losing their shit during that scene. It was really well done. I love how Crankcase and Crowbar were actually chasing the Autobots on foot and kept up with them. It was so tense.

    Especially when Bumblebee flipped forward and transformed ... everyone in the audience was in a stunned silence. When Bumblebee transformed back into a car, everyone let out this huge sigh of relief. It was pretty cool.

    That scene was my favorite in DOTM. Mirage shooting hooks into Hatchet was pretty cool. As were the Dreads running after Sentinel.

    The way the Dreads moved in that scene was awe aspiring...

    That scene left my jaw on the floor, literally.

    I agree. That scene was so awesome. I loved the music too. The Dreads were my favortie decepticons.
