I liked the movie (fun, lots of action) but I didn't like it any more or less then the first (my girlfriend had the same opinioin) and in that point I was a little disapointed. I thought this movie was really going to blow me away. The starscream/megatron stuff was really cool but I didn't like how easy it seemed like the fallen got smoked. Also how megatron was the fallens underling like that, megs didn't even willingly listen to unicron (g1) and he is so easily controlled by a bot who can't even give prime a challenge when it's 3 on 1 against him I thought the movie chugged a long a good pace even with the longer run time (lots of action no a lot of slow parts, big battles) I hope with two under their belts now though that by the time pt.3 comes around we will really get something special. By the way, what happened to the matrix after prime blew up the energon machine. I didn't see him grab it back or hear about it after that. Did I miss something?
