All I care about is giant robots beating the holy heck out of each other. I'm not going to waste time judging any other content if Bay delivers on that, like he's already done three times. (some of you really need to remove the damn stick...)
Reducing our expectations/mental capacity to that level, in terms of the running time, we get less Opti-smash per hour with each sequel, which is honestly 90% of what drives the hate.
If we had racist, homophobic robots for an entire
film, I guarantee you that the hate would be far less.
