Carly was a vapid waste of protoplasm. I HATED her. With the exception of her and Megatron, completely useless. And considering old Megs' shape, a dog barking at him would've engendered the same effect!
This is nothing but bias clouding your judgment.
Carly worked for an embassy.
She was an executive assistant for Hotchkiss/Gould.
She was intelligent enough to tell the cavalry where to go and what was at stake, and she was able to rub salt in Megatron's wound.
Mikaela painted bikes in her Dad's bike shop.
It was probably her first job.
She killed Alice. (Whoopity doo.)
Megan Fox is not an actress, and I give her credit for trying.
Rosie Huntington-Whitely is a model and not an actress, but for her first try, she succeeded. She has genuine talent.
I admit I have bias towards Megan Fox, however, my dislike of her is not enough to say she's ruined the experience for me. Even I can rise above it and give her some credit. You can't even do that for Rosie.
She's 10 times the actress and eye candy that Megan Fox is. Why? Because there's some intelligence behind the pretty face.
Mikaela chopped off Frenzy's head, got into the car with Sam, "I drive, you shoot!' ring a bell? She stopped Wheelie from getting the Allspark shard and killed Alice/stopped her from capturing Sam.
Also, Rosie with her pouty lips was crap compared to Megan. And eye candy? I... really don't give a damn about that. I really don't.
What did Carly do? Get captured, and give a talk to Megatron, who at that point a dog barking would've spurred him into the same actions.
So, maybe a bit of bias, but also a lot of fact there too. Mikaela was a better character than Carly and her leaving Sam after everything they went through made negative sense. Yes, that's right. Negative sense.
