    A dude quoted this on another board. It made the Twins death incredibly badass. Was it really like this?

    "There had never been a moment when the motor-mouthed Autobot named Mudflap had been at a loss for words. Under ordinary circumstances, Sam would expected him to say something like "Oh, no you did-unt! Oh NO you DID-UNT! Uh uh! You in it now!" He said nothing like that. Perhaps it was because of the psychic link that he shared with his twin so that he had actually felt Skids die. Perhaps it was because of the betrayal of a warrior they revealed above all others, like finding out the Archangel Michael was on Satan's payroll. Whatever the reason, Mudflap didn't react the way Sam would have expected. Instead he howled. It was a primal agony, torn from the individual bit of Spark that powered all the Autobots. It was the most horrible thing Sam Witwicky had ever heard, and he recognized it for what it was: the sound of a soul dying. And then it escalated into a war cry of undiluted fury."

    Yeah it's in there and the fact that he didn't put it in the movie was quite lame.

    Because in case you aren't aware by now, the novel is easily 10x better than the actual film.

    I was glad the Dreads in the movie were a little harder to kill. I was disappointed that in the book, one dies being ran over by Simmon's car.

    I thought it was awesome. You didn't put the quote from Skids' death either! Possibly this scene would be in a deleted scenes section in the DVD, if there is going to be one?

    Really,Sideswipe and Mirage kill the other two,then 5 new dreads come out of nowhere and get killed by running into Ironhide. Honestly I would have liked for SS and Mirage to distract Crankcase and Crowbar until IH comes

    Meh,I prefer the execution. It gives Barricade something to do. BTW,one thing bad about the novel is that it doesn't have Barricade :p

    Bay cut the Twins death scene cause I telekinectically influenced him to not kill them off.
