Cliffjumper couldn’t at least call for assistance??
That's implying if there are actually other Autobots in the area. Plus, calling for help would just give away the location of the other Bots which Cliffjumper was trying to avoid.
So he would rather die than telling Optimus’s whereabouts?
that is the entire point of the scene. it's literally stated in the dialogue.
G1 Cliffjumper and TF Prime would have fought back!
Ok but what does that have to do with anything
It's not uncommon in space movies for characters to easily find other characters on other planets. It often seems harder for an earth bound character to find another earth bound character than for a character to find another on an entirely different planet somewhere else in the universe even though the search area is substantially larger.
All I’m saying is, Cliffjumper could have at least fought back instead of just pleading
He didn’t plead though? Like he had a noble stand and didn’t give in. I dunno man.
After, I assumed, being on the receiving end of a rather painful take down
Man, I'm really hyped to pick up the bluray. It's saying something that i'm nabbing Bumblebee ASAP but have not, nor have any desire to, pick up the Bay directed movies*.
*Dunking on the movies, original, amIright?!
all he needed was chains remember their weakness is chains a good ol chainin would've kept him alive.
i gotta vent, bumblebee has it's moments, a lot of moments, but it feels like these move goes on for a bit to long
It’s very short compared to the other TF movies.
ik, my main issue is the middle of the movie, there is a lot of filler like most of charlies interaction that aren't with bumblebee, the story to me feels like it could be a bit over an hour but they wanted to have it closer to 2
That's my main complaint with the movie.
i've been thinking about it and i think the reason i don't like the camaro bot at the end of the movie is because his other forms have the front of the vehicle split into his pecks while his camaro form has some type of... monopeck
Considering that scene starts with his arm torn off, it's fair to assume he tried and failed.
Having watched it again recently, I do feel like it could have been shortened a bit. After Bumblebee goes into stasis, there's a big chunk of the movie without Transformers. I feel bad saying that because it's all good stuff, but I found myself getting a little antsy for robots to pop up. It's fine to have a little downtime, but it's also hard for the slow stuff to compete with the excellent fast-paced opening scene and the Blitzwing fight. There's sort of a tone shift, almost like you stepped into a different movie. It goes from being Bumblebee's movie, to Charlie's movie, to a team up movie between the two. Once Bumblebee re-enters the movie it's fine, but the Charlie-only stuff feels a bit long.
Interestingly enough, there was a lot of stuff with Charlie that got cut. There was more to the carnival scene, more of her brother, that sort of stuff. While enjoyable, I think it's good that it didn't make it into the final cut. It would have added to this effect even more.
Don't get me wrong, this is pretty much nitpicking in the grand scheme of things. It's still an excellent movie, and still the best-paced Transformers movie in-terms of robot/human screentime. This effect was sort of inevitable for the type of movie they were making. Still, it's a minor complaint I noticed on my third viewing.
That's been a problem in every TF movie IMO. I think it's just part of working with CGI characters within motion capture.
