I'm not talking about finally making whatever defines a state of the art, "good" movie. NO. I'm talking about a Transformers movie, where the main focus is on the transformers? Look at the trailers, the TV spots, etc. There's no way in hell this movie holds the same old same old from the last trilogy. While it IS possible the film could be a disappointment (for anyone holding their breath in order to not be disappointed), it just feels like, off the advertisement ALONE, that THIS is the TF movie we've wanted ever since 2007. Here's what took away from the TFs in the last trilogy: FAR too many main human characters. throughout the last films we've had: Sam Mikayla/carly leo maggy glenn sam's parents simmons dutch all of sector 7 lennox epps all of nest the fucking military 2 typical government assholes(male & female) It was too much humans, not enough TFs. In AOE we have: Cade tessa shane joshua TJ miller's character li bingbing's character grammar ksi The big thing about the AOE cast that I like is there's NO N.E.S.T, no military involvement it seems. They're not around to steal the TF spotlight! And also, MOST of the human characters here are at least relevant in some way, where the first 3 had too many irrelevant humans. The main 3 humans alone have a better story arc than honestly most humans did in the last 3. More relatable, more touching. But aside from that, Bay stated that he realized the majority of this movie needed to be like the final hour of DOTM. It sure as hell seems that way at this point. And with the addition of the Dinobots, he's saying "screw realism, time to go cartoony"(nothing says cartoony like a fire breathing robotic t-rex with horns) and you know what, people LIKE that. If realism meant more military over transformers then I'm glad Bay turned around and said "fuck it, if this IS my last tf movie, im gonna do it RIGHT". I know people must think im pushing my luck, but the hype is just in full effect. I'm more hyped for this than i was for DOTM, and thats saying something!
