I would never be able to return to otherwise – a time when I had no worries or concerns except playing with my toys in my backyard, making spitty explosion sounds with my lips. The film has its faults, a few of them no doubt. But it would be trite and ridiculous to let them shine above the massive amount of talent that is proudly on display in the production.
I could do without the Twins in favor of more screen time for newcomers Arcee, Sideswipe, and Jolt. Originally, the writers conceived of the Twins as the kid-friendly pull to the film. This idea, sadly, was butchered by the voice actors and Bay went with it. As much love as I have for Bay and his team, this was a mistake that will forever taint the film. What if he had just listened to the writers?
There are a couple minutes of the film I could do without and Michael Bay himself admits on the commentary
