Yeah, I know -- it's pointless to even think that Michael Bay is going to change any aspect of his money-making formula for Transformers 3. But just for fun, let's pretend that Bay was actually open to suggestions on how to make TF3 a more coherent, better acted, better plotted, well-paced sci-fi action film in comparison to the first two TF movies. Getting the obvious out of the way first.... 1. Less romantic intrigue between Sam and Mikaela. Let's face facts - there's absolutely no chemistry between LeBeouf and Fox whatsoever. Now that Sam is the unlikely goofball who actually got the impossibly hot girl, there's not many interesting directions for their relationship to go. So please - no more agonizing subplots like the "say you love me" stupidity in TF:ROTF. 2. More focus on the main TF characters, less on the comedy relief characters. Yes - I'm talking about the Twins. Whether you hated them or thought they were knee-slappingly hilarious , they still took too much valuable screen time from much more worthy 'bots. Same with John Tuturro's Agent Simmons. Give the character something to do, but enough with the same lame recycled gags. 3. More wide-angle action shots, less choppy, machine-gun editing. Although Roland Emmerich's 2012 was every bit as mindless and over-the-top as TF:ROTF, I found the action scenes in 2012 to be much more watchable and they even succeeded in building some legitimate tension towards the end of the film. How about some epic Transformer battle scenes that show us a static landscape with several 'bots battling within? Or perhaps a non-slow-motion scene that still manages to make the action perfectly clear? Can Bay let go of some of his his favorite cliche's? Probably not.
