    Thank you for doing this!

    Sounds like there really are some marked improvements compared to DOTM. Love the Animated aspect to Megatron. I'm not super confident about the film, but I think at the very least I'll find it entertaining throughout.

    Disappointed at the score/soundtrack not being as memorable - but a 'good' film is all I am hoping for and it does have some potential from your description of the plot. Though Optimus's character might take some getting used to.

    A majority of the review is a detailed analysis of the plot as such if you want his final thoughts they can be found here - in order to avoid spoilers;

    "In Conclusion as sequels go, this is one of the better ones.If the newer feature films follow this path, they’re going the right direction. The film does seem a bit long, at almost three hours. As a result we get the missing characterization from the Autobots that we've been lacking, as well as some plot development. Some of the acting in the film could be better, Nicola Peltz is a prime example, but it doesn't distract from the charm that comes from the Yeager family. All in all as toy commercials go, I would give this a 7.5-8 depending on the viewer. Whenever I can I want to see it again to listen to the soundtrack, which wasn't as prominent this time around"

    Soooo... What happens to Galvatron? Do the dinobots actually do anything? Do any of the dinos or Autobots die?

    Thanks Ace! This movie sounds awesome! This plot is very linear, but manages to introduce topics that could be used in sequels.

    How exactly does Drift hate Bumblebee? I see a lot of people mentioning this, but very few expounding on it.

    Forgive me if this was already asked, but do we actually get to see some good fight scenes with the dinos in robot mode?

    One after the initial credits similar placement to the 'Starscream heading into space' scene
    One at the end (Human related - easily skip-able)

    But Optimus's compassion for humanity is restored right?
