Well the Optimus Prime I knew wasnt a JarJar like goof stumbling in gardens hiding from parents and excusing himself with braindead statements like "My bad". That is why the mvie sucked. The lack of respect for the characters overall. Instead you get a movie about Hot chicks, Anthony Anderson, Shia Lebouf's awkward teen problems..and the military....occasionally you get some characters turn up who shared the name of much beloved characters, who now totally against the character's nature, tortures humans for information by pissing hot oil on them.... That loses me alllllll sympathy for that version of Bumblebee when he is tortured.
Its a bad movie for so many more reasons that its non-g1ness.
May the second be MUCH better....
But given Devastator has f***ing monocycle wheels on the firm, its not the best start.

Haha, that's quite a mouthful. I'm sure this next one might be abit better. I'm hoping like the Empire Strikes Back of the TF's trilogy, I hope this film ends on a bad note, and a downright downer for all the good guys.
my thoughts about the first film were very much a rollercoaster. everytime the effects kicked in i thought it was the best film ever made. every time the transformers talked or there was a humanity overload, it was horrible to watch.
the transformers werent in it nearly enough for my liking, the original way it was done was all about the transformers and them adapting to earth. this, seems how its humanitys adapating to them. which is completely wrong. i'm not too enamoured with bays story either, its not as alien to g1 as some may think, as not all the g1 story was ever detailed in the cartoon. however it why change it if you cant improve it?
i have seen a qoute from nay and he has said that the robots will get more character, which is something, and the effects look absolutely amazing.
i dont actually mind the look of devastater. lets be honest, they're not going t make the robots look like how the should so mite as well get used to it and hope they're different looking enough to not have to acknowledge them as the proper ones.
i'm still hoping theres some billionaire out there who wants to make a proper transformers film, sod coming to earth start off where it all began.

I've liked everything about the transformer parts of the movie(s) so far. For a story about giant transforming robots doing battle it makes an acceptable amount of sense. As much as I loved the old G1 style, I couldn't see it in a film. I mean, look at the Devastator picture. Sure, it's cool and tickles my nostalgia but I wouldn't want to see those big 80's grandma sunglasses, terran design, and lime green paint job in a movie.
Speaking of Devastator, I'm not so sure that's him in the trailer. His arms are identical to each other, and in each shot, which leads me to believe it's one machine that split down the middle.
