    Ok, here are mine:
    1. too many noname decepticons in this movie without earth-mode or transformation.
    2. invasion scenes remind too much of Skyline and Battle Los Angeles.
    3. US forces can easily damage or even kill Transformers with assault rifles and MGs? If they are that vulnerable they could be easily wiped out. But instead, fighter jets and tanks seem to be less powerful than a bunch of spec ops
    4. Wheeljack and the the Magic Troll Autobot looked terrible in head design.
    5. Shockwave was weak
    6. again too many vulgar jokes that are not funny.
    7. again the final battle was too focused on how capable the US forces are while the Autobots get degraded to 2nd row actors.
    8. people who are that loyal to the Decepticons until the end were too unbelievable.

    Those were WheeljaQ's special guns made to KICK ASS, that's why they could hurt Transformers.

    My complaints are:

    1. Shockwave could have done more.
    2. The Wreckers could have more screen-time.
    3. A scene of mourn could have been done for Ironhide.
    4. More screen-time to Ratchet.
    5. The Dreads could have done more.

    -Sam's job hunt, it was just a pointless lead in so he could meet Deep Wang eventually, they could of done it differently within 5 minutes

    -The parents, I saw the movie 3 times, the audience groaned every time for both of their scenes. Especially after Sentinel turns on the autobots and kills iron hide... cut to parents in funny pajamas. two different times i heard "oh come on things just got good, and now this"

    -no acknowledgement of Iron hide being killed

    -Shockwave, a wasted opportunity. He should of been tearing up the city. He had a total of 3 minutes of screen time and fired his gun maybe once?

    -Too quick of an ending

    the fact that they destroyed all the decepticons instead of following the book ending.

    parent scenes should be deleted, they added zero to the movie.

    chicago was kind of weird, i never really got the black hawk down feeling. was rosie necessary for it? everyone had to go there anyway to save the world.

    tl;dr chicago should have seemed more dangerous.

    PS liked the book ending better.

    What I didnt like.

    1. While Optimus and Bee were greatly given more screen time and great character development, all the other Autobots took a back seat once again.

    2. None of the Cons seemed to be fleshed out and given great character development except Laserbeak.

    3. The Cons were just way to weak and again... underused.

    4. while I liked the plot of this one, the movie started off way to slow with the whole Sam getting his first job.

    5. Felt that a lot of the transformations were cheaply done.

    6.While we all know the Autobots will always come out on top, will we every truly get a movie that shows the Cons really take it to the Autobots? I mean come on... there is no way that a hand full of Autobots should be able to come out on top EVERY time no matter if the odds are even or dramatically against them. Sorry to say it but in DOTM there really should have been more Autobot casualties.

    7. I did not like that none of the main Cons got to kill an Autobot at all in this movie and none besides Megatron ever got to kill an Autobot. It was Barricade that killed Q/Wheeljack and Sentinel who killed Ironhide.

    8. No one really got to know Q/Wheeljack so his death was not a real shocker but with deaths like Ironhide, there was no real emotion from the other Autobots over it. Why? Bumblebee grieved over Q/Wheeljack's death but no one did anything as dramatic for Ironhide. I guess this could also be due to the fact that so much of the Ironhide death scene was cut due to the twins being cut but his death felt cheap and then it was lets move on and forget it.

    1. Shockwuss.....really? One of the most logical emotionless Decepticons downed by a parachute???????
    2. Neat idea with Prime's trailer, not shown enough
    3. Ironhide's death just kicked to the curb?

    On the plus side, I was actually happy to see Wheelie (and I am NOT a Wheelie Fan)

    1. Too quick of ending with no real wrap-up of this trilogy's storylines
    2. Megatron and Sentinel beaten too easily and no storyline to show how their partnership started (would have liked book ending almost as well)
    3. Ironhide's death having no real emotional effect on Lennox, Sam, or the Autobots
    4. Autobots, besides BB and OP, were not seen a whole lot during the Chicago fight even though heavy fighting occurred.
    5. Fights between Autobots and Decepticons end too fast and not as drawn out as ones in TF1 did

    Shockwave was underused and underpowered. Doesn't fight enough,didn't kick any ass,didn't talk enough(liked his voice,good mix of G1 and con growly voices) and defeated by a parachute....seriously?

    1) The driller/tower scene. I've said this a few times, but I reallt felt this an unnecessary scene. The $$, time, and SFX could have gone to better things, like:
    2) The Twins. I know they were hated after ROTF (and by many, still are). But I kinda liked them and their disappearance from the franchise feels cheap.
    3) An actual ending. It cut way too quick to "Directed by Michael Bay"
    4) More Shockwave. I know EVERYONE say this, but it's kind of a no brainer. He was bad ass and I'd like to have seen him do more than ride the Driller around
    5) Don't kill off the main Decepticons. I know Michael Bay was done with the franchise, but leave some doors still open. I feel like it was slammed shut by killing Megatron, Shockwave, Starscream, and Soundwave
    6) No talking Laserbeak. That just was...wrong
