Come on, for the big, awesome, war machine that is Optimus, saving someone is all in a days work. I guess he realises that for a tiny, punny human like Sam, saving him is lot more hard work.

Yeah! I was hoping for another great speach and i got... that... Really, they seem to have told an hour worth of story in the last 15, 20 minutes of film. People have been complaining about the movie being too long but if they had cut a few (not that many) useless scenes and expanded what needed expanding for the story to make more sense and for the finale to feel less rushed, the movie could hit the 3 hour mark and people wouldn't complain. Why not? Titanic and The Lord of the Rings movies were 3 hours long, why not a Transformers movie if thats what is needed for a proper story to be told?

Bay shows us Sam a lot but few times autobots. After Fallen's dead, where 're others autobots??? Optimus and Sam only. Bay doesnt care about autobots
As i said above, a longer, less rushed battle would fix this. I mean we get to the end of the film and what do we know about the robots, besides Optimus?
Bumblebee is last seen greeving Sam's death but is not seen again after he comes back to life;
Ironhide was injured in that big blast (we see him jump clear but that's it);
2 bikes are badly injured (only the blue one seems to keep fighting);
Sideswipe is seen firing a few shots but after spotting Sam he's not seen again (or is he?);
Ratchet and Jolt do the Optimus/Jetfire parts mix, both seem rather undamaged;
The Twins aren't seen again after Mudflap shoots Skids in the face;
Wheelie... he's last seen taking shelter with the humans near the pyramids, the night before Sam figures out what the 3 kings are.

That is just a bit too much to leave to interpretation. If nothing else Bay should have done like in the first movie, a shot of the flight deck with Autobots in alt mode (Wheelie humping Mikaelas leg). It would have been better than the rush fest we got.
