An Easter Egg during the final fight between Bumblebee and the Decepticon Dropkick is shown when during their fight Dropkick throws robot mode Bumblebee only to have Bumblebee transform into his vehicle mode and land safely on the ground and u-turn towards Dropkick and transform back into robot mode and punch Dropkick in his face. This is directly lifted from the original 1984 G1 Season 1 cartoon opening credits where the exact same move is performed by Decepticon Skywarp on Autobot Jazz who in turn performs the same move Bumblebee does.

Also, found it strange that the service vehicle was equipped with an harpoon, considering this is not standard and that they have never encountered transformer before. See more »
Part of the closing credits are a stylish sequence of images in yellow and black. See more »
The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M rating from the classification board the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however this modified version was still seen as being to strong originally and received the original M rating given to the film, however following an appeal from Paramount the film was lowered to PG on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release. See more »
An entertaining film for fans and youngsters. When it comes to the editing and the story telling I feel it is lacking. There are many scenes where the viewer is left confused wondering or hanging. Some scenes are simply repetitive and I feel not cut smoothly to be cohesive. Bumblebee dies/gets killed and gets resurrected approx 10 times which gets old after a while. John Cena should just stop playing any serious roles. He is funny until he tries to be serious or bring emotions on the screen. Just does not suit him. Hailee delivers a solid performance and definitley is the perfect fit for the role. The Soundtrack is just awesome with the best of the 80ies. Not a "gotta watch it again" movie. The emotional component of the "missing father figure" and the "moving on" aspect is done nicely and gives the film some depth.
