    Simmons and even Lennox was almost useless*sigh They was in the film, because writers promised to tie everything.
    Plot holes are everywhere. Before TLK I didn't know what is plot hole. Now I know. Thank you Akiva Goldsman.:cry

    As a 15 year old boy I disagree. A beautiful girl is a beautiful girl. And she's in the TF films ?? :drool:

    I think she is this film's Leo.

    ROTF and TLK feel like they share a number of similarities, but it feels like they said, 'we need to give the lead someone to interact with, so, here's this character!'

    Though ROTF at least had me applauding when Simmons tazed Leo. Never thought I'd actually be applauding someone as annoying as Simmons!

    I liked her, but she didn't really do anything.

    At least I found Leo funny. Izzy was just....there. And you're absolutely right about the comparison. I've held back on saying it but this film feels a whole lot like another ROTF except we're missing an awesome forest battle and end battle where it's mainly robot brawl being at the forefront of screentime.

    Whenever I think about Leo, I remember Mike Nelson from the ROTF Rifftrax: "They already got a Shia LeBeouf in this movie, why are they loading in another one!?"

    Not bad acting, nor was she annoying.

    Just utterly useless, ya know?

    God, I can never not laugh at his scenes...! :D

    Good character that deserved a better movie. You can pretty much erase her from the film and it wouldn't effect anything.

    She was fantastic but severely underused. I LOVED Vivian, but if we wanted to keep Izzy, Izzy should have taken Vivian's role as the one who could wield the staff.

    Great character and actress who was unfortunately wasted and made totally irrelevant by the movie abandoning the junkyard and everyone but Cade and Bumblebee for England.

    Eww.

    It does make them a creep when they admit they're twice her age. Can't be pinned on the actress either, bud. And that's all I'll say about that.

    She was a filler character that had no effect on the plot. It's a shame too cause the girl was giving it her all every time she was on screen. It's kind of insulting considering part of the marketing really focused on her and made it seem like she played a bigger role in the movie than what she ultimately did that amounted to nothing. If I was her agent I'd keep her farrrr away from any future installments of the franchise.

    I liked the idea behind her and her tiny deadly robot friend, but because she wasn't in it much she almost felt as useless as Captain Phasma to me.

    First time around I was extremely surprised by how little she was involved compared to what I was led to believe from her prominent place in the marketing. I thought she was going to be a central part to the story who saved the day in the end. So I definitely came out of my first viewing feeling she was absolutely pointless, basically disappearing for almost the entire thing.

    Second viewing though I just focused on her acting and thought it was very good. The relationship with Canopy was touching, and I loved her spunk. I also loved the couple of scenes where she was taking some smack from Cade and she just does this smiling to herself thing. You expect a typical Bay shouting match like you get with a lot of the other characters, but not with Izzy. It was a pleasure to watch.

    Second time around, I found myself silently cheering when she showed up again at the end, even if she didn't end up doing as much as I initially expected. She was overall just a very pleasant element for the film; she just exudes confidence and caring.

    You make it sound like lying about his age would have made it less creepy. I say just the opposite. He was honest. He didn't say anything off-putting, just that she was attractive, which is obviously true.
    I don't want to get into a big thing here either, but I had to point that out. It looks like the big pedo-scare is still going strong.

    Her role was too small to even form an opinion of the character, but I accepted what I saw. What I didn't like was Cade calling her bro x2: it's better than how the movie treats the female model actors, but calling a person of one gender by another isn't exactly empowering
