I think we can all agree that having the Decepticons so easily taken out by humans was a bad decision. Sure, humanity’s not going to go down easily, but the fight against the Decepticons needed to be portrayed as much harder, in fact as being near-impossible without the assistance of the Autobots. The human fights in this film are comparable to the IDW comics where Spike Witwicky is able to take down Scrapper with construction materials – it looks cool that a human can kill an an evil robot, but it negates the need of a good robot to defend the human. FIRST FILM Awesome. The humans couldn’t stand a chance at first, most of their heavy artillery didn’t do too much good (even Scorponok survived heavy fire). It was only with the help of the Autobots that they could prevail (it was Bumblebee who took down Brawl, not Lennox), and admittedly some quick thinking and guts. Blackout (low shot by Lennox) – Lennox takes revenge for the friends he lost in the SOCCENT attack. Badass scene. Megatron (Allspark in the Cube from Sam) – Though I wish Megatron had lived, it’s karmic justice that he gets fried by the one thing he lusted for, and by a lowly human that he tried to kill rather than by Optimus Prime. ROTF Acceptable. Things have changed, NEST uses part-Cybertronian upgraded tech against Cybertronian invaders, it’s fairly reasonable the fight would be a little more balanced and even-sided now. But the Autobots are still needed, thankfully, as Lennox and Epps are able to sneak them out of custody and take them to Egypt. Constructicons (airstrike) – although further individual combat for the Constructicons would have been nice to see (more fights like Rampage vs Bumblebee and Mixmaster vs Jetfire), a nice strong airstrike (stronger than the one on Scorponok) does a nice job of making them all scrapmetal. EDIT: Should have mentioned Devastator getting shot down by that rail gun that came out of nowhere. Sorry about that. DOTM Awful. Look at how many non-Autobot kills occurred in this film. They might as well have sent in a bunch of nuclear missiles into Chicago just to cut the runtime. Starscream (boomstick in the eye from Sam) – I found it amusing, I still do. But this is also a very humiliating way for someone as iconic and formidable as Starscream to go out. This gets my vote. Barricade and Deceptico. (shot down by NEST). What good are innumerable troops when they can be taken down easily?
