This review just gives me more faith in the film. Heck, my anticipation has been growing since I first saw the trailer. Granted, I too, am not carzy about the design of some of the faces, but really, this sounds very great.
The part with Sam's dog made me laugh. I can just see it now.
Iron Hide: *Nearly avoids crushing Chihauhau.* Oops, sorry little feller..
Chihauhau: *Yaps at Iron Hide a little, and then pees on IH's foot.*
Iron Hide: Why you little varmit.. *Aims an arm cannon at the dog.* This'll fix'ya!
Sam: What the? No, don't shoot him! >< *Completely flips out at Iron Hide.*
I know, I know, but I really hate those little "rat-dogs" as my dad calls them. XD Anyways, back to the comments. Really, like ID4? I saw that movie, was pretty good to me. Never saw Armaggedon, but my dad did, and he liked it, so this is all good news to me.
And Decepticlone Soundwave, they will talk in the film. They were only mute probably because the VA work is still being finished, and these scenes were the most complete of the ones worked on. So don't worry, at least the Autobots won't be mute, not sure of the Decepticons though... If Bumble Bee speaks in the Prequel Comics, but not in the Film, well, I think you get the idea...
Anyways, I just have this one thing to say. Bring on 7/4/7.
