Saw the new Transformers movie, and my original opinion still holds true: the appearance of the Transformers is too muddled to be viewable. In a fight, it's terribly hard to know who just got hit--the only reason for the paint on them is to use that as a visual queue. The problem is this: most of the Decepticons have no paint on them. They're just steel-colored.
I know there will not be a 4th movie, but if they change their minds and do it anyway, it would be nice to be able to watch it and be able to follow the action better.
Maybe I just have bad eyesight.
