*SPOILER ALERT*So who else was a liitle dissapointed by DOTM

Postby DiabloNZ » Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:00 am

I mean don't get me wrong was still way better than ROTF but....

I would of liked to see some more character development ie why was Shockwave on earth, how did he get there etc
More main character interaction
And whats with wiping out pretty much all of the decepticons (come on 90 pound weekling Sam taking down Starscream with a piece of wire)
And Optimus destroying his own planet to save ours????WTF

Basically just a lot of niggly things or maybe I was just expecting better

And Optimus being stuck in a net? Megatron just sitting there moping in the corner? Too many plot holes.

Still enjoyed it though

The autobots were more decepticon like. Optimus, "Kill them all!!!". Wreckers pull apart a helpless decepticon. At least the decepticons had the decency to keep prisoners. Q wasn't executed till the human guy sort of corrupted barricade or was it soundwave to take no prisoners.

And yeah, At the rate/ratio Autobots are killing decepticons in these TF movies, I cant believe they lost the war on cybertron.

Decepticons have numbers on their side, a bit like the advantage Russia had over Germany in WW2.

(interesting point, during operation Zitadelle in 1943, the Germans were destroying / disabling 17 Russian tanks for each German tank lost, and it was the Russians, not the Germans, who were the ones who could afford those losses...)

My opinions can be found in the DOTM reviews thread. This thread seems a little superfluous.

i guess you could say disapointments can be covered in the reviews thread,this is more of a why did you not like it thread

review thread can cover both aspects where this thread is one sided

Sorry, my bad.

For what it's worth I wasn't dissapointed, because my expectations were so low after the second one. I actually enjoyed this one more than I expected to. There's a lot to dislike about it, but in terms of expectations, mine were slightly exceeded. I am dissapointed with the franchise overall however, visually spectacular though it is.
