20 robots in TF2?

06.02.2008

If you're a TRANSFORMERS fan and/or a massive geek, Christmas might just have come early this year in the form of a comment made by screenwriter Roberto Orci on Don Murphy's message board. He writes that: "I'd love and think we could almost barely manage ten on each side, with some front and center and others as more supporting."

So that's potentially twenty robots fighting at the same time? I guess it's that or this is one of the heralded Michael Bay rickrolls. Either way, the main problem I had with the first movie was that in that badass final fight sequence, most of the time I couldn't tell who the hell was who. Who knows what will happen when we have more than twice as many generic looking robots taking part in the mle this time around? Also, who knows whether those accents I put on the 'e's in "mle" are correct. They sure make it look sexy though.

It isn't that many more

If you look back at the last movie, its not that many more than what were on display there. You had Prime, Jazz, Ironhide, Ratchet and Bumblebee for the Autobots. There's 5. For the Decepticons you had Megatron, Starscream, Devastator, Barricade, Blackout and I want to say one more, not to mention the scorpion that came off of Blackout and the little guy that came out of Barricade. So you've got 10 right there, if you don't count the offshoots of the larger ones, so its just double the

Granted, Jazz is dead and Megatron is at the bottom of the sea, but likely to return.

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT?

Seriously, does anyone really care about character development for a TF flick? I hear people saying this all the time. Character development this and that. C'mon, guys...it's Transformers. All you need are those awesomely cool giant robots. And Megan Fox. Man oh man is she smokin' hot. I wanted to say something else in this post but I'm just gonna stop and fantasize about Fox instead. Mmmm...

Cool

Just because they're adding more 'bots doesn't mean they won't develop the characters more.
And I guess I'm the only one, but I didn't have a problem telling who was who in the final battle.
BTW--Bay rocks.

If one does not succeed with human character development, maybe a robot character is the only kind BAY can do... and Will Do... God BAY sucks!!! Could've he just save the over the top shit for part 3??

No character development?

Character development is part of the mechanics of the story arc. without them the movie would lose it's steam. Spiderman 3 & X3 were very poorly written & directed movies that didn't have any character development.

plot + characters

i agree, transformers has always been about robots with some human interaction. If they don't intent to develop (some of) the characters and also make them recognizable then they might as well call it "attack of the large robots...".

The decepticons in the first one all looked the same for example, as if it wasnt enough that megatron looked like an octopus...

the movie was very entertaining but only optimus prime stood out. oh, and for some weird reason he had to have "lips".....

haha

haha ohhh star tak, ur name says it all. I don't wanna see robots have character development. I wanna see them blow each other up to high hell. Save that for the humans.. or the MAIN CHARACTER ROBOTS. Not all of them need to have 20 minute background stories

I hate it when they think more characters mean more fun. They should have learn that from X3 and Spiderman3. There will be no character development.
