After the lights came up, two of my friends said they enjoyed it, but they wish they had introduced the characters and I agree. The robots generally just appeared and did a scene and then did little cameos later. Only the "big players" such as The Fallen, Jetfire and Optimus really got good screen time. I think giving the robots a bit more identity would have helped the story immensely.
Yeah, after Prime the Autobots have no strong personalities at all. They're completely leaderless. They really needed Hot Rod to show up or something.
Jetfire was great and the Megatron/Starscream interaction was perfect. Nice to see some 24 alum. Glenn Morshower and Tony Todd's voice.
