    Would it have been better if Carly's brother was the British NEST Graham?

    Think about it much of her anxiety about Sam back in the game again would be rooted to a loss of a brother in the conflict between Autobots and Decepticons as a NEST trooper.

    This way she would've not been a nobody who just happens to be Sam's girlfriend.

    So what? People meet new people and start relationships with new people.

    And it's not like that guy is a memorable/recurring character.

    I like that idea. It would add even more onto Rosie's character.

    Yes! I saw a glimpse of him in ROTF, and it's another one of those, oh, why oh why do you get these great actors that have an opportunity to play an outstanding character, only to drop them off the edge of the Earth?????????

    It would have made excellent reason for the whole Lennox's line "she comes from a military family and knows all about the Autobots!" And, this guy can act, and I would rather have him in the movie than either Wang or Dutch! It's just another missed opportunity.

    Eh, not really.

    I just thought that Carly's brother was killed in either the war in Iraq or in Afghanistan, that her brother was not involved with NEST, and so when Sam was about to join the Autobots in their fight with the Decepticons, that she was going to lose him more or less in the same manner as her brother.

    Besides that, I thought Carly only knew of the Autobots because Sam had told her all about them after he had gotten the medal from Obama for his part in saving the world from the Decepticons, and that she met Bumblebee, Wheelie and Brains sometime before the two moved in with each other.

    Very nice. That would've added some welcome depth to Carly and her relationship with Sam.

    I actually thought he was her brother...

    It made sense, since he was SAS and possibly killed in final battle in ROTF.

    Yes, but what people are saying is they would liked if her brother was Graham from ROTF, instead of just some other soldier

    The actor who played Graham did a fantastic job as "School Boy" in Rambo (HIGHLY recommended, btw!), so I like to think Graham went mercenary at some point between TF films and made some money on the side rescuing missionaries with good ol' Johnny-boy, lol.

    Would've been nice if he'd been given a bit more to do in TF:RotF or at least had his character expanded upon in some way during TF:D otM, considering they seemed to go out of their way to distinguish him from the rest of the gang for apparently no real reason other than to establish NEST as a multinational military force.

    Having said that, I'm not sure killing him off-camera would've been any more satisfying a character arc resolution for him...but it certainly would've made things a bit more neat and tidy, at least.

    Aw I liked Graham, even if he was a few cameos character. I wouldn't have minded that.

    It would be if it wasn't for the fact I don't remeber Graham at all. Seriousily he was like suppose to be the 3rd guy with Lennox and Epps and instead he gets the shaft like Fig did in the first movie.

    He could have a charecter if they actually tried.
