Hahaha, I noticed most of those fails. I forgave them simple enough cuz it's a movie about toys. I really think they should add disbelief to them. Bring Cybertron closer to earth due to Meg's evil plan so the 'bots have to surf their way to him -disbelief. That was awesome in G1, why not a live-action film? That's sorta my views on it. I really hate it when a film tries to be serious, and there's major flaws in it. For example, a movie I watched recently depicted a Canadian cityscape when the film was supposed to take place in Seattle.

with transformers 2 I can accept a few flaws and that but the movie has to do a good job to draw you in so you don't notice it and can beilive it.
But with the crap humor and crap story i was so removed from the film i noticed every thing.
They would of been better of calling the air and space museum
the Obama space museum then you could think OK maybe there is a yard at that one. but when you give a factual name then you are bound to it.
Oh yeah and the transformers are a secret yet the whole city saw their big battle at the end of the first movie.
Yup. Thats absoulutely ridiculous, along with things like Bumblebee's voice now NOT be fixed, the Twins, the inclusion of T-X in the movie, Sam's whole college trip........urrrgggh.
Its fine to argue that being slavish to realism can kill an idea,
you could try telling Bay that regarding his "mass shifting means no accurate Megs/Soundwave" rule...
(Which he has the Allspark break)
Regarding the over focus on the inner workings of the military and Sams progression through College etc and monotonus Secret service stuff too.
All respectable points of view, I understand most of those irks. They got to me as well. However, I still really enjoyed TF 1 & 2, as well as GI Joe. I remember when my cousins and friends would play with our toys when we were kids, we'de make believe that our bots were in the desert, then two inches would go by and we'de be in the jungle. Five inches up, and we were in space. When I saw the loss of direction from the museum and airplane graveyard, we all looked at eachother like: "Hey, they're doing what we did, haha"
