I was watching ROTF again and then at the end of the movie, I just realized it ended just as abrupt as DOTM. I haven't seen ROTF in a while but when you really compare the two: In DOTM, after Sentinel Prime is wasted, Shia kisses Carly, BB drops some rings and then Optimus does his monologue and then Linkin Park. For ROTF, Prime defeats The Fallen, he appears next to the sphinx, Sam kisses Mikaela. Sam and Optimus appear on an aircraft carrier, Optimus does his dialogue and then Linkin Park. They're identical. Never once either of those 2 movies do they talk about the aftermath of the battle unlike the first one which gives you some sort of closure because you got Autobots calling reinforcements, the secretary of defense addressing the nation, megatron and dead decepticons being dropped into the ocean and starscream flying off and then Optimus's monologue. So I'm not all that dissappointed about the way DOTM ended. We all know how we would've loved to see some sorta cliffhanger like glowing eyes or unicron in the space or whatever but the fact is that there wasn't more to discuss. The battle is over so roll credits. Same goes for ROTF, I don't remember people complaining so much about the way that ROTF ended.
