Why did all the people die?"etc,etc. I have always used the cartoons as a moral guide for my son,they were something we could enjoy & relate to together.I feel betrayed.
I'm sorry you feel betrayed, and I'm not a fan of the Bay TF films, but I'm not sure why you were shocked by the violent & sexualized nature of this last film.
I mean really?After the first 2 films of the series, with all the sex jokes and violence you were really surprised by the same from the 3rd film?
Sorry if this sounds rude but.........Seems to me that if you son want ready for that type of images its something you should have researched before going to the movies.
