    I loved the entire sequence but one thing kept bugging me.

    Bonecrusher transforms. Prime transforms and turns around to take the brunt of Bonecrushers tackle.

    It looks like they're both on a normal freeway ground level road.

    WHY does the next shot cut to them tumbling off an overpass?

    Is it just me or did that shot seem a bit off?

    They where speeding?

    Thats one thing that is very noticeable but people forget that they are driving on the wrong side of the road too ^_^

    Sense of scope.
    We really didn't see the full momemtum of Bonecrusher's hit.
    Plus they tumbled off camera a bit.
    There are more Hollywood explanations, but its not hard to imagine the highway turning, looping and there being a curved bridge for them to fall over for dramatic effect.

    The vehicles behind them don't match up either... (there was a truck behind BC when he tackled Prime, but when they cut to the two bots falling, you see a few cars behind them, the truck is gone)

    In any case... OMG THE RUINED THE SCENE OMFG!11!LOL1!1!

    I actually noticed that when I saw the clip, but living in the UK I assumed that American freeways could just drop off like that into valleys and troughs. I now gather they don't?

    I thought the same thing. They were cruising on a flat desert highway then all of a sudden they were up high on a city overpass. As soon as I saw Prime transform I knew it was the beginning of the clip I saw. I said to myself "how the **** did they get there?"

    its the same thing in the first jurassic park movie, when the t-rex rips up the car, and all the sudden there is a huge cliff. its one of the things where you have to say "oh well, it looks cool!"

    I think there was a huge chunk edited out of that scene.

    If I remember right I thought it was originally a full blown chase, and Prime takes out Barricade at one point before taking on Bonecrusher.

    I bet they filmed the chase sequence but then cut it down to what we saw on-screen.

    Wasnt Barricade supposed to have all those flip out missiles and stuff in vehicle mode? There were a few scenes that seemed kind of jumpy, as if they just cut stuff out of the middle.

    I'm sure the DVD will have some sort of "deleted scenes", I just hope they're 'complete' and not raw footage with basic animatic robots.

    I hope that scene goes longer. Bonecrusher had no chance. :(

    That scene was DEFINATELY cut, same as with the Barricade/Bumblebee fight. My guess is that ILM hadn't finished the renders on time, forcing them to cut those scenes.

    Bonecrusher was my fave, I was so pumped to see that battle onscreen.

    That was really the only major let down of the movie for me.

    How about EXTENDED VERSION DVD with DELETED scenes?

    I'd buy THAT for a dollar. Please make it happen Mr. Bay.

    Hell I'd pay $20 or $30 for THAT one (or whatever a normal DVD costs in your area)
