I don't think people would hate them so much if they weren't gangster wannabees and didn't take up too much of the film's attention. I really liked the idea of two younger Autobots that were maybe a little immature joining the ranks on Earth. They could fool around in the background and narrowly escape the worst of situations in one piece but have a shining moment towards the end and become full fledged Autobot warriors. I thought this is what the production crew owuld go for and I was looking forward to it. Do you think they would be a little more accepted if they didn't talk the way they did, didn't curse, and weren't in the forefront so much?
