    that scene also showed us Cade figuring out the drones and it set up the scene at KSI. I think it's necessary

    Cade figured out the drone prior to the scene, the set up had already been done.

    The movie is being panned mostly by the critics for being overly long. The viewers, even as evidenced by this board, are much more of a mixed bag on whether they thing it was too long or not.

    Stating your personal view as if it's factual doesn't help you at all.

    no he was still working out the kinks and the set up hadn't been done. that's where Grammer learns that Cade has the tech and could possibly be a bigger problem for them then they originally thought

    I would probably keep the Drone scene as it helped show suspense and if I kept the drone scene with the ATM I could trim the scene where they acquire the ID for KSI.

    List V2;
    - Cut the opening scene, it went nowhere and didn't explain the legendary knights
    - Cut the first 20+ minutes easily and open with Cade buying the Optimus truck
    - Trim down most of the car chase scene including the ridiculous 'jump' scene
    - Cut the Ratchet torture scene projection (Audience have already seen it in detail)
    - Cut most the Tucci's romance subplot
    - Remove the Attinger jet 'reaction' scene
    - Remove the Attinger car scene's
    - Remove the 'KSI card scan scene'
    - Remove all product placement scenes (Milk, Beer, etc...)
    - Trim almost all the Chinese added scenes
    - Trim a huge portion of the café scene
    - A massive amount of running in Lockdown's ship scenes
    - A massive amount of the Hong Kong chase
    - The entire 'magnet machine' scene
    - The entire subplot of the humans trying to remove the sword from Optimus

    Yeah, easily could (And probably will) turn this movie into a trimmed down 1hr 20m film.

    I would cut out some of Lucas's bits at the beginning.
    I would cut a lot of Stanley Tucci's scenes near the end.
    I would trim the first half of the final battle. The shootout with Hound went on a bit long.

    That is about ten to fifteen minutes right there. I would also insert some more exposition to explain some of the stuff with the Dinobots.

    I lived in hong kong and the direction that the Autobot's ship was knocked by the blast leads directly to the Pacific Ocean...not some remote grass sanctuary. The editing done between the two scenes was a little weird as well.

    Originally, I thought they are gonna find the dinobots near the Great wall and ride them to Hong Kong.
