    My experience is that, these kinda threads are always great to browse for people that haven't seen the film yet. DOTM is more of a scene movie than anything else.

    The Highway scene takes the cake for me, it had a real energy to it. Plus Bee's little save had me whelmed. What followed had me over.

    Followed closely by:
    The Wing Suit scene, especially in 3D. Flying has never looked so immersive.
    The Cybertron scene! Amazing design and motion.
    Rocket Scene!

    Think my favorite stuff was with Dino on the freeway leading to Sideswipe and Ironhide VS the Dreads later. Those are the scenes of autobots vs decepticons I really wanted to see.

    That whole building sequence is amazing though.

    yea I think outside of optimus, if you want to see autobot action and team work it's gotta be that earlier scene.

    I love seeing these creatures run, always have.

    I'd say the wingsuit scene, followed by the whole final fight with Sentinel Prime basically taking on all the autobots at once. The highway scene was amazing, my jaw dropped when Bumblebee untransformed hit the rocks out of the way, caught Sam and then transformed again. Also Bumblebee taking down Soundwave was a pretty awesome action scene.

    Freeway/Dreads. That was fantastic. The teamwork was great. The movie needed more of that. More Ironhide and Sideswipe too.

    I'd have loved the wing suit scene to be just a minute longer.

    The freeway was probably the one that got a lot of applause and laughter, mostly due to Sam's reactions.

    I'd like to see a freeway chase where the Autobots are the ones doing the chasing!

    The opening on Cybertron, specifically that pan into the Ark with the gunner lobbing those giant rounds, sticks out in my mind. Also, any one of the interior shots of the Decepticon warships. This movie shone when the giant alien robots were allowed to do cool giant alien robot things.

    The whole sequence leading up to the Mexican standoff scene with IronHide, Sideswipe and the two Decepticons was my favorite.

    ^ That was cool. Sideswipe was awesome and should've been used more. He had some great lines in that and he's a badass fighter. Some of the characterizarions are off but they nailed Sideswipe, even in the short amount of time he was given.

    I just found out that James Remar did his voice. That makes him even cooler. :woot:

    The freeway scene was definitely the highlight for me, even though it used footage from The Island :lmao:. It would have been a perfect scene to kickstart the final act, but it just went back to boring human **** for another half an hour, so it was basically pointless.

    Got to be the building sequence for me. That's an early contender for 2011's best action scene if you ask me, exciting and tense as Hell to watch. But I pretty much enjoyed the entire last third of the movie.
