BUT! I think part of the problem was that Furmans idea was beyond him. You needed some strong human characters and he just couldnt produce any. The pace was wrong as well. There's something to be said for slow-builds but infiltration covers very little actual plot.

Also, I cant be the only person who loved the serious side of the decepticon invasion, only to stare slack-jawed at their super-secret base hidden in plain view on the side of a mountain with a giant decepticon logo on it. That was just pure stupid.

I'm pretty sure that's the reason why Megatron swooped in to slap the sense back into his mooks. Only loose sense himself later

BTW, could you specify what was wrong with Furman's characters(besides being stock cliches, anyways), I thought they fit the story pretty well.
