really. I had read that Bay was very impreesed with him and had given him a nice bit of extra material maybe he didn't put out.

I have to agree with El Guapo about Megan Fox. I don't get the big deal. she is not attractive in any way that I can see.
I find it ridiculous that any man would choose her over death at the hands of Isabel Lucas

kevin,

does TRANSFORMERS 2 offer any explanation as to why the ALL SPARK can create new TRANSFORMERS from everyday machines and reawaken MEGATRON, by merely being near them, and yet BUMBLEBEE (the only TRANSFORMER to actually touch the ALL SPARK in the first movie) only regains a very limited ability to speak accidently because he is damaged in the final battle??
I suspect not!!

in a movie, those abilities would have to be put to use. however, I've seen footage (not just the trailer) and read most of the screenplay and this is not remotely anything like SHERLOCK HOLMES.
After seeing the trailer, my impression was that Holmes was being made into 007 of the 1800s. I don't think that's a good fit.
