Wow, I was hoping he wouldn't sound like "Agent Smith". Not too bad!

I think I might be wetting myself too. Can't wait for Monday!

If Megatron's voice is like this, its going to be freakin awesome!

Wow, I was so dead set on hating Weaving as Megatron. Now I have no reason to, he sounded great.

Like i said with the right voice effect anyone can sound like megatron. It did sound like a deeper Welker. Not bad. But i still hate how Megatron looks. For an alien robot it looks good but for Megatron i dont like it. To organic looking. Cant wait untill monday night.

I have to agree.

I still prefer Welker's old grizzled ancient alien war general voice in the game more though.

But at least it does not suck like I thought it would.

I've got my tickets, have you got yours?

wow his voice is awesome....i never thought Weaving could pull it off but he did.....i understand why Bay chose Weaving over Frank now.....his voice is absolutely terrifying..fits Megs perfectly

I have come to love everything else about the movie, but that voice just doesn't "wow" me. Hopefully the voice will stand out in other scenes. It that one it was really boring. Anyone could've done that voice! It didn't even sound like Weaving! So freakin' lame.

Let's petition to have Frank Welker do the voice-over for the DVD!

Good Lord, Shia LeBouf just earned a "Razzie" nomination for that performance. This movie is gonna s-u-c-k. I just know I'm going to be disappointed.

Postby Dave_6 » Sat Jun 30, 2007 10:54 am

I am trying SOOO hard to not watch this clip! I wanna wait just a couple more days to see the whole movie :cry:

It is mighty tempting to watch it.... :grin:

I really liked Shia's line, it showed that Sam was determined to save the world, even in the face of extreme danger he wouldn't give up

I am glad that those spike-y teeth things :grin: on Megatron's mouth disappear ( :) at least partially) when he talks.

I am now convinced that Megatron is my very favorite of all transformers.

I am amazed at how many people actually like what has happened to poor old Megs how anyone can think this generic pantomime villain is preferable to the sterling work Welker did in developing the voice over the years is beyond me.

Nothing against weaving, b/c he does sound good, but we are to believe that Welker couldn't have done 'AS WELL'? Possibly better?

Meh, whatever. I'm against ALOT of elements of this film, but I'm going to see it. Likely twice.

I'll probably love it too.
