During the car chase scene before the bridge Bumblebee goes off the edge but catches on the railing and returns back up to the road before the tunnel. This scene is almost shot for shot the same as the opening chase in Castle Of Cagliostro (1979) and in it Lupin drives a yellow Fiat that looks very similar to a VW Bug See more »

The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M rating from the classification board the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however this modified version was still seen as being to strong originally and received the original M rating given to the film, however following an appeal from Paramount the film was lowered to PG on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release. See more »
This by far is the best Transformers movie yet. It has great characters, a decent storyline, and the fight scenes between the Autobots and the Decelticons are fantastic. Even John Cena isn't bad in this movie. I highly recommend this to any who is a fan of the Transformers and also to someone who enjoyed those amazing 80s films that Steven Spielberg directed
