Excellent 'thrill ride" movie !
Yeah,....some things were 'lost in translation' from what Gen Xers remember from our youth. But that is often the case at least to a degree according to what the director's perspective is in terms of realism or visual asthetic. (hey,...IMO they made up for the 'look' of the decepticonz with Megan "you can't be real" Fox) LOL
But for the most part,...Bay "did it real big" with this movie.
