    Why should they talk? I mean, honestly, within the context of scene, story and character, why would they go around jabbering? "Keep your optics open"? Why would anyone say that? It is dialogue for the sake of dialogue. The scene is perfect the way it is.

    Let me ask you this. If there had been a lot more dialogue for the Cons in the last movie, would you care at all that they didn't talk much (if at all) in this particular scene? Do you think that, if there is pleanty of dialouge amongst the Cons in this movie, do you think you will care when this scene rolls around and they don't?

    I mean, if one person could think of meaningful, purposeful dialogue, then great...but come on, lets think of something a little better than "Keep your optics open."

    I am glad to see the defenders of this scene finally showed up. I can't believe people are actually whining about the lack of dialogue. The mood established here was perfect.

    i didnt think the scene needed defending because i thought it was only a minuet and a half of a 2 hour film and rising to the bait of the movieverse haters isnt something i care to do. IMO scene = win + Movie will = Epic win. But hey what do i know, cause im obviously not a true fan because im open to interpitation beyond what was done back in the 1980's and that I realise that this is for a new generation of kids who now get to have their own stories and play as their transformers in the playground just as i did when i was a child

    Don't know if this has already been said or not... But if you download something called Ultrasurf 9.4 it will mask your Ip and you can visit all site internationally... That's how I use pandora and watch southpark on the main southpark site.

    forgot to mention........ That was great, lots of bots, the shots were nice! I liked them. Wow.. weird... anyways, only complaint (yes there has to be one) was that the decepticons didn't SAY anything..... well i heard some grumbling... but nothing understandable... not again........ agh.. how much better would that scene have been if one of the decepticons had been coaxing them out verbally in a very sinister way too? Not in a grandstanding scene stealing way, but just subtley in the background, something to give them a small amount of charater to help them seem real as well.

    For me it would have made it perfect... anyways, looked nice!

    So yeah.. for me bay took it up a notch with some of his directing decisions in those scenes... i like. also... did anyone think it looked like megan fox almost twisted her ankle while standing there or something? lol or was she pretending to be a robot? i didnt see the awards. :p  anyways....... very strange.......

    Im sure it was tried with dioluge but just didnt feel right or flow as good. Bay left straight after to finish audio so who knows but in the grand scheme of things i feel there will be plently of Decepticreeps speaking as they now know the general audicence wont just get up and leave muttering under their breath "okay big alien robots i can handle but talking alien robots i want my money back and years of therapy"

    It was a cool clip. It seems to me if I was searching for someone, I wouldnt want to give away my position, so speaking cybertronian there makes perfect sense. I still cant figure out who is running toward the battle in the background at the end of the clip. Im guessing Bumblebee but I dont know. Could be Jolt. Havent seen much of him. Id also like to say that its a little weird when the term fangasm and stuff is used...it shouldnt excite you THAT much. Maybe just teenagers use that term.

    Because the autobots are probably used to earth by now and are so used to speaking english. Decepticons are still hiding out. Besides, being deceptive is their whole angle.

    How are they used to speaking English?!? They are residing in a crashed spaceship on Mars. They are only talking to humans when it is necessary in order to get something they want. There is NO reason that they speak English at all except to satisfy fanwank. Not that they shouldn't speak English every now and then, for the sake of the story.

    I was very happy with the amount of times they spoke English in the first film, although a few more interaction scenes between Cons wouldn't hurt, as it seems they are doing in this flick.

    If Screamer or Long Haul WERE mumbling "where are you little shits" or shouting "come out", I think I'd feel a bit embarassed for the filmmakers. Seriously, having any characters talk for the sake of talking is just bad screenwriting. It's part of why I hated Anthony Anderson and Isabel Lucas in part one.

    I agree. In the first movie when all the Decepticons said like "Brawl moving out!" In cybertronian it was just so cool! There was only like 2 lines in there and they only speak Cybertronian because they were probably saying "They're in there!" and if they said that out loud in English, Sam and Mikaela would probably get away. Although, Probably the main cause is the screaming of the insection might have alerted Starscream to their location...

    I'd assume that when the Insecticon was ripped apart, the other Cons were notified to it going offline. That, or it broadcast Sam/Mikaela's location before it died - as you said it did "scream" in a high-pitched kind of sonic burst...

    Isabel Lucas was not in part 1.
    You must be talking about Rachael Taylor.
