Not really. Just ranting. It was a good movie, I enjoyed it, but there is one thing that is honestly driving me nuts and it is the lack of care a respect that Bay has for the characters. He introduces new ones and destroys them all in one go as if he has an assembly line to go through and he has to meet a quota. The only two that remain are the money makes: Prime and Bee. And I am so over it. He doesn’t even bother introducing the characters and as such the connection one has with the bots is ultimately severed. The magic is quickly fading away. Every movie up until the fourth had a moment that took your breath away. The first when Optimus met Sam Witwicky and crouched down on his knees to speak with him eye to eye and introduce himself. The second when Sam brought Optimus back to life. The third when Prime and the team returned in the nick of time to save the world. But this latest installment left me wanting.
All in all it was good. I will go see it again. But it left me feeling a bit bitter as well.
