I feel like 50% of the reason these films get reviewed so bad are because of the length. All of the transformers films have pushed the two hour and twenty minute mark. But this one just decides it has to be two hours and forty five minutes long. I think I have to agree with something I read on the internet: Bay wants to keep all the scenes he likes, he doesn't believe in director's cuts. Sometimes when im bored, I like to watch movies with the commentary on. Most commentaries mention that there were many scenes they had to cut out to keep the movie pacing on track. I feel like Bay doesn't do that. I mean two hours and forty-five minutes? come on. I thought 127 minutes was too short, but 165 is too long. 140 is just about perfect.
