    Well, please you guys watch all of the three TF movies, and tell me if there are any real human beings in the movies, there are no real human beings in the movies, they don't bleed! Even transformers do bleed, why humans don't bleed?

    Of course there were no real humans in the films. They were all cardboard cutouts, blowup dolls and caricatures.

    In all seriousness, you sound like you're really scraping the bottom of the barrel, looking for things to complain about.

    Because it's a PG-13 movie. Blood in large enough volumes=R rating

    What??? Sam gets all banged up in mission city, in rotf he has nasty bloody burn marks all over, not to mention Reedman jumps through a Nest soldiers body and fluids go everywhere, in dotm we see people get vaporized, a wingsuit pilot fall through the air in flames, how much more violent do you want in a kids movie???

    Then what was up with all those bloody scrapes and scars all over Sam's face in ROTF and DOTM?

    It's a tricky thing with the American film ratings since there aren't hard fast rules. You can have some blood in a PG-13 movie, but a little bit more blood than the ratings panel is comfortable with and you get slapped with the R rating.

    The more you look into the ratings system the bigger pile of crap you find it to be. If you get at chance watch the movie This Film Is Not Yet Rated to see how bad the system really is and how hard it fails to do what it was meant to do.

    You figured it out. They are all Pretenders in such deep cover that they're all tricking each other. Now everyone can stop bitching about the robots not getting enough screen time.

    This.

    -Soldiers get vaporized by Blackout.
    -A soldier gets impaled by Scorponok.
    -Sam and various other people get cut up and scraped and bruised (a lot in RotF).
    -Soldiers get shot during Reedman/Ravage's attack.
    -Dead bodies float in the ocean.
    -The Fallen decapitates a soldier.
    -Simmons gets tossed from a car and breaks his leg.
    -Humans are vaporized in Chicago.
    -Skeletons and charred clothes line the streets of Chicago.

    AND MORE.

    There's violence present in the movies, because, well, the content calls for it. But blood is noticeably absent for rating purposes. Take the X-Men movies. How often do you see blood gushing from the wounds of the most recent Wolverine stabbing victim, hmm? Not very, if at all. An R-rated Wolverine movie would have blood all of the place!

    Agreed, but you know what I find even more hilarious about the rating systems? They allow the most terrifying, nightmare-inducing kind of violence as long it's not with humans, the Transformers Bay movies have pretty graphic beheadings, dismemberents, and one character is gutted on screen [Jetfire], but since they are robots, IT'S AALLL OKAAAY.

    Similar logic goes to the LOTR movies with its Orcs.

    Star Wars, too. Looking even barely non-human means it's okay to have your arm lopped off and bleeding all over the floor.

    Small Soldiers. Characters get stabbed, ripped apart, horrible experiments on merging figures, thrown into garbage disposals and dismembered, etc..

    The general rule of thumb does seem to be that "as long as they are real humans, it's A-OK!"

    There sure was some blood when they popped/vaporized humans into fine red mist in DOTM during the invasion sequence.

    Damn, I thought it was violent before. And who cares if there's blood or not.

    If you want blood, see a gory horror movie.

    Then go watch the Saw movies. :p  But seriously, if you want an R-rated blood-bath for Transformers, don't get your hopes up on ever seeing a live-action film based on that. Maybe a graphic (literally) novel in the near future, but probably no television series or movie would dare do that.

    Dude, it's a MICHAEL BAY movie. Not all the facts are going to be exact. That's why it's called "movie magic.

    :bay
