-The fight scenes were fantastic. They were not hard to follow and the robots were not hard to keep track of.
Maybe for a hardcore fan, but for a guy who knows next to nothing about them going into the film, it is. I had too much trouble trying to identify who was Autobot or Decepticon, let alone their names. The reason I point this out is because there is probably a decent size amount of theatergoers who are like me in the former aspect. And I'd appreciate if my opinion isn't trivialized as whining or hating, thank you very much.
Maybe it's not whining or hating, but it is off-base. The way you get to be a die-hard fan is to pay attention to what's happening. You don't need to know the old stuff to enjoy the new stuff if you're not looking at it as, "Gee, I don't know all the robots so I'm hopelessly lost". The important ones were easily identifiable.
