Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman considered having the planet-devouring Transformer Unicron as the main antagonist, with Autobots and Decepticons uniting to stop him (they had introduced his servant the Fallen in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)). But since they turned down working on this film, the concept was scrapped. See more »

OK, let's be fair to this movie. The special effects were great -- assuming you can suspend your belief in physics long enough to enjoy them. The rest of this movie was awful.
The product placements for Lenovo, Cisco, Waste Management and Chevy Impala were overwhelming. There was a product placed in almost every scene, and the sheer SIZE of the logo overshadowed most scenes. It was brutal, even for Michael Bay.
And the leading woman (I refuse to look her name up for this review) - the giant implants she had in her lips gave her that permanent "duck- lip" look. Gross.
It's sad to see so much of Hollywood's money go to tripe like this. There must be better things to fund.
2/10, and all of the "2" is special effects.
