    Gotta love the haters - why even bother commenting? Never ceases to amaze me.

     

    That being said, I did just watch it tonight! Human plotline sucked as usual, but who goes to these movies for that....it was all about the fights, explosions, and destruction and as usual, Michael Bay delivered on all accounts in that regard!
