    Unexpected Heroes in Transformers: Dark of the Moon

    The third Transformers movie really deserves a clap with a standing ovation. I have nothing negative to say about the movie. Everything for me is perfect including the God Damn hot leading lady.


     She’s a perfect girl for me as a replacement to Megan Fox, she’s very beautiful, but I’m not going to talk about her. I’m here to talk about the “underdog” characters in the movie which turn out to be the heroes on their own rights.

    Needless to say, Optimus Prime, Bumble Bee and Sam really outshine everybody in the movie as they are the leading characters. I watched the movie with great expectation on Optimus Prime because he is the main character. But I think supporting characters also played a very important role in the movie. While the whole world focused on Optimus Prime and Sam, I want to speak out for those characters which play background roles but deserve an acknowledgement for their heroic acts.



    They are the following:

    1. Jerry Wang




    The NASA top secret regarding the mystery of the dark side of the moon has been kept and passed on from generation to generation with only selected people. And one of those who know the top secret is Jerry Wang who happens to work in an office where Sam is working as a messenger. This man saw the potential of Sam to help them with the “dark side of the moon” thingy because he knows Sam has connection with Autobots and aliens, so he got the courage to approach Sam eventhough he knows his life is at stake. This man died later on in the movie because a Decepticon attacked him in his office  but he has been successful in passing the important information to Sam. So I considered him a hero for that act. Without him, Sam could not warn the US National Intelligence about the threat brought about by the Decepticons.

    2. Carly Spencer


    She’s Sam’s girlfriend. I thought she was just an ordinary leading lady who always hides under the hood of the leading man and a subject of a helpless love interest seeking for his man to save her from danger. But hell no, she herself risked her life when she approached Megatron to make him realize that merging Cybertrone in the earth would not make him the ruler. Megatron could have killed Carly by telling that hurtful truth, but he was able to realize that Carly has a point. Because of that, Megatron attacked Sentinel Prime, the head of the invasion operation and the threat for his leadership. That was such a smart move by Carly and she deserves a kiss, I mean, a clap.

    3. Megatron





    You may have hated him in the past two Transformers movies but Megatron did a heroic act on the newest Transformers movie. If not because of him, Optimus Prime may have been killed by Sentinel Prime.  Thanks to Carly for convincing Megatron that Sentinel Prime will rule the earth if there plans will become successful. This triggered him to attack Sentinel Prime which about to kill Optimus Prime.


    4. Wheelie and Brains


    I haven’t expected these two pets will play a very important role in the movie. All the while I thought they are just there for comic relief. They’re funny and cute and charming, but of all the heroic acts, what these two little creatures did in the movie received a clap recognition in the cinema. Bumble bee could have been killed by the Decepticons, but thanks to them for destroying the machine of their opponents.

    5. Dutch



    He is the man behind the computers of CIA. He helped the CIA agents to cross over the bridge to attack the opponents. If not for his big brain and for his big heart to save the whole world, it could have been difficult for the soldiers to defend the world.


    The reason why I highlighted these characters in the movie is because I want us all realize that all of us can be a hero. Whatever role you are playing, whether supporting or leading or just a cameo role, you can be a hero, everybody can be a hero.

    15. I liked it better when Megan Fox was the lead actress. She was hotter and well, the person that transformers revolved on.

      But Micheal Bay is still a genius making this series happen.

    18. In a few distinct ways, underdogs are just as important as these lead characters. Most probably why the Oscars have this "best supporting actresses/actors thing."
