    I don't know if this has ever been Talked about if it has , then I must have missed it, but hear me out.....

    In the Scene at the Beginning of Revenge of the Fallen where Major Lennox says "Arcee Twins target coming your way !"

    What if it was meant to be "Arcee , Twins" ? meaniing that he was alerting Arcee and Skid & Mudflap ? You know what I mean ? Cause Sideways was headed in both of their direction and both the Bikes and "The Twins" had almost cornered him. You guys know what I mean ? So in a way perhaps Arcee wasn't being called Twins .....with the other times they are contacted or talked to, the bikes are just called Arcee ..... since a lot of people seem to think that Arcee and the Bikes are being refereed to as twins, but in actuality they aren't

    What are your guys thoughts ?



    Thanks :)

    Yep it has been covered but it was a while back.

    I think the most reasonable explanation was that sometimes things that are clear as written words are not always clear as spoken words. Thus written out it was likely "Arcee, Twins target coming your way!" when the line was spoken it sounded more like "Arcee twins target coming your way!". It would be easy to see the difference when it's written but not so clear when it's spoken.

    It still amazes and flumoxes me as to why anyone would even think that a set of THREE near identical characters would be referred to as TWINS, especially as we were all well aware that there would be a pair of Autobots called The Twins...

    There's no thinking or speculation to do on this one.

    "Arcee! Twins!" Followed by the trio of Arcee and the duo of The TWINS being seen.

    I always thought he was saying "Arcee! Twins target headed your way!" and Arcee was supposed to take out the Twins.

    This is taken from the ROTF 2 disc special edition Blu-ray with english subtitles on. It pretty clearly says Arcee Twins!

    Not Arcee, Twins! or Arcee! Twins! or anything else that grammatically seperates the two.

    Whether or not it's correct, this is what is said. Just like Brawl is named wrong in the first film.

    the guys who wrote teh subitles aslo got it wrong, since soemtimes peopel sasy that sometimes the subtitles are sometimes wrong

    BUT THE SPANISH DUB HOLDS THE AWNSER TO RESOVLE THIS CONTROVERSY!!

    in the spanish dub, Lennox say Arcee!, Gemelos! and gemelos is male meaning of twins in spanish, and sicnes none of the bikers is male then its clear that he was calling for Skdis and mudflap

    Wait, people actually misinterpreted that dialogue? I didn't think it was anything less than completely obvious.

    I think the better question is "why do we even care?"

    And I see that the movie forum is still comprised of people who either want to talk about how the movie sucks with other people who feel the same way, or distract and derail every topic that might actually be discussing the movie.

    I'll check back in another month, but I'm sure you will all still be here.
