That's what I did Jaye what makes it worse is the black eyed peas song at the end I can't stand them and I am sure that song mentions cybertron so it was the wrong song to pick for that film.

I enjoyed the film as it had lots of super action in it.I do believe that if the film hadn't been rushed it would've been better.The accelerator suit was a bad idea & was annoyed we didn't see Destro's Iron Grenadiers but the Neo Vipers were awesome :-D

am i the only person who didn't think the Delta 6 accelerator suits were that bad?

i didn't LOVE them, but i didn't think they were an unholy abomination unleashed from the fiery pits of Hades like some people do...

it was ok - want to watch it again to give it another chance really. think it would have benefitted from a mega shark. or a giant octopus.

A plot by Larry Hama would have improved it.

I can't help but think that, with a little bit of forethought, the Accelerator suit would have made a fantastic Cobra Commander Battle Armour.

What I really wanted to see were faithful vehicles. Baroness, Snakes and Stormy all looked the part, but where was the lifesize HISS or VAMP?

But I will give it another go.

The Accelerator suits are purely so they could do the Paris chase, no other reason to have them in the film really, especially as no other Joes wear them. They haven't even made toys of them have they? So yeah, pointless but allowed 2 men on foot to chase a car and smash through a train. Would've been more exciting seeing a Bourne style chase through Paris, maybe on foot.
Overall though I enjoyed it, some of the characters were really well done. Ripcord and Duke were lame though.

yeah, the director had this great idea for a 'car chase' where the baddies are driving and the goodies running and just had it shoe-horned in, but given a) it's set in a near-future world with real-time 3D holographic conferencing, nano-machines that eat metal and control minds and sonic-pulse weapons and b) the REAL LIFE military are trying to develop exo-skeletal battle suits i really don't have a problem with them.

apparently they were tough for the actors/stuntmen to wear and cumbersome so they'll probably get ditched or minimised further in 2.
