So, I was always in the "Can't wait, robots is good camp." I didn't care about the director, writers, actors, etc. I knew they were going to suck. Akward dialogue, poor acting, poor edits/music/etc. I fully expected it. I would tolerate it between Optimus's lines and the fight scenes. I had no idea how bad this movie was going to be. I am simply astonished at the poor character work, extraneous scenes/lines/characters, plot holes, illogical actions, forced romance, forced drama, and awful editing. Cut out the forced love , ALL of the S7 elements, and let the movie breathe a little. I know we can't have the robot character fest I'd love, but at least let a core group of human characters say believable things. Every line megan fox or a governemnt employee said was a awful. Edit out a lot of the weak attempts at inspiring guitar music, and let us SEE the robots for a change. I can't picture Brawl below the waist. That said, I loved it. It was worth the wait to see my robot friends duke it out again, but wow, the people behind this movie put every effort into filling it with shit.
