    I can't remember if it was when Bumblebee signal is detected or if it was when S7 detected Shatter and Dropkick landing on Earth.

    Can someone describe the scene with “the touch”? Did it involve Prime?

    It was an awesome movie. Idk if anyone else caught it, but Agents Simmons was in the movie for like 5 secs. He was the guy that gave John Cena\'s character the papers that alerted him that the Decepticons had arrived in Texas. Anyways, awesome movie. I still oove the Bay films, but this was a well made movie. The only thing that bothered me is that it never answered whether it\'s a prequel or reboot. There are many callbacks to the other movies, like the soundtrack of TF1 being used at times, Agent Simmons being in there, and Bumblebee turning into the camaro at the end, but at the same time there are moments that make it look like a reboot. Either way, I truly recommend it.

    So I would say that this isn’t a reboot, more of a soft reboot... I mean even agent Simmons was there, it doesn’t contradict any more than the others did...

    I loved it, every last minute although cliffjumper’s scene was pretty sad.

    Best transfomers film for me, it felt great the whole way through. It’s a feel good movie, and for the first time in 5 movies the robots are characters!!! It only took 5 tries! Less is more and this is proof!
    I give it 9/10

    According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.

    In short, grow up dude. It's just a freaking movie that's handled by the same guy behind Kubo & the Two Strings.

    Just got home from the advance showing. A very enjoyable movie, and a good reboot for the Transformers film series. Travis Knight did a wonderful job, and this gives me faith in the oncoming Hasbro cinematic universe.

    That said, I would have really enjoyed an additional 90 minutes of the first five minutes of content.

    Got back from seeing this too. I rarely post these days, and even when I did I stayed away from the movie sub like the plague. THIS movie however was excellent. Well acted, well scripted, story that understood itself. I am literally can't stop gushing.

    ALL of the Transformers characters had a sense personalities, and distinction on how they look. The G1 (fully speaking) cameos were great, (RIP Cliffjumper). The decidedly short but sweet, one sided battle on Cybertron at the beginning forces you to keep your eyes peeled. We however also get to return for a short bit as continuation of the scene at the beginning to watch Optimus take on the Aerospace Extermination Squadron.

    The Earth scenes however we also really done, especially with Charlie and Bumblebee. You feel for these characters and the situations they are in, and how organically their bonds to each other form. Hailee Steinfeld is excellent. Shatter and Dropkick were great antagonists.

    This movie definitely feels like a soft re-boot to the franchise. As there were call backs to the Bayverse, there were a lot of new elements that quite blatantly contradict the 2007 movie. With that said I don't mind because this movie feels like it should've been the one we had gotten back then.

    My ever so tiny nitpick was wishing that seen at the end on the Golden Gate Bridge with Prime in his G1 altmode, was to see Bee still as a bug roll up beside him before scanning the 77 Camaro.

    Can't wait for the preorder!

    He was not. It was actually great at the end. See, at one point Bumblebee watches Breakfast Club and picks up the "fist in the air" move that Judd Nelson does. He does it a few times. Then at the end after Bumblebee has saved John Cena's life, Cena salutes him when he lets them go and Bumblebee gives him the Bender salute in response.

    It wasn't the same actor. It was a different person playing a younger version of him. I'm forgetting exactly which scene it was - I think it was when the U.S. Military was meeting to discuss whether or not they should help the Decepticons. I could be wrong though. It might have been a different scene. Agent Burns (Cena) definitely says "Simmons" though.
