** Sam is running from Barricade. He gets bogged down by keeping Mikaela from getting herself killed. Barricade is almost on top of them. That's when Bumblebee [[Big Damn Heroes slides into]] [[CarFu his legs]] and encourages the kids to climb in. No, that isn't the awesome part. The awesome part is when they are fleeing the scene and Barricade rolls over like an animal, lunges forward, and transforms into car mode in midair! Immediately followed by the car chase with [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome rockin' background music.]] The scene was so amazing, it elicited ''applause'' in theatres.

* Optimus killing Bonecrusher by stabbing him in the face with a sword, then decapitating him.
** During his fight with Bonecrusher, Bonecrusher punched Optimus, who simply shrugged it off. Then, he returned with one of his own, so hard that you see in slow-motion ''Bonecrusher's eye popping out''.
** And killing Barricade immediately afterwards (made it into [[ComicBookAdaptation the comic and novel adaptations]], but ended up getting cut somehow in the actual movie)
** "[[CatchPhrase Freedom is the right of all sentient beings]]."
* This exchange between Agent Simmons and Captain Lennox:

to:

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n* Glen managing to not only crack Sector Seven's encryption but also ''[[HollywoodHacking decipher alien code]]'', in just a few minutes, is very impressive.
** Forget that, he ate an entire plate of donuts! Where did he put it all?
* Shia [=LaBeouf=] as Sam improvised most of his rant about how the Autobots were messing up the backyard, and Peter Cullen, recording his lines in some studio miles away, goes 'Calm down, calm down' in perfect comedic timing.
* Simmons and his Sector Seven goons have kidnapped Sam and Mikaela; they're being interrogated about the aliens during the car ride to a more... ''secure'' location. Simmons is getting fed up with the BlatantLies the kids are spouting. ''"It's time to talk!"'', he says. And then a giant foot smashes into the front of the [=SUV=], and equally massive hands pick it up by the roof. The roof breaks off, and a 30-foot robot tosses it casually into a river.
--> '''Sam:''' Oh, you a-holes are in trouble now. (''Everyone aims their guns.'') Gentlemen, I'd like you to meet my friend. '''''Optimus Prime.'''''\\
'''Optimus:''' Taking the children... was a '''''bad''''' move. Autobots, relieve them of their weapons.\\
('Ironhide and the others leap from the nearby bridge, armaments out.'')\\
'''Jazz:''' Gimme those! (''Uses his magnet hand to rip the guns away.'')
'''Simmons:''' (''shakily'') Hi there.
* Sam charging the Sector Seven agents apprehending Bumblebee is both this and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Heartwarming.]]
* Optimus killing Bonecrusher by stabbing him in gets to say his famous CatchPhrase when inspiring the face with a sword, then decapitating him.
** During his fight with Bonecrusher, Bonecrusher punched Optimus, who simply shrugged it off. Then, he returned with one of his own, so hard that you see in slow-motion ''Bonecrusher's eye popping out''.

** "[[CatchPhrase Freedom
Autobots: '''"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings]]."
beings"'''. So good to hear.
* This exchange between Agent Simmons The Decepticons are attacking Hoover Dam, trying to free Megatron and Captain Lennox:steal the Allspark. Sam wants them to let Bumblebee help get the cube away from the dam. The Sector Seven agents and Lennox's soldiers draw down on one another, and we get this exchange:



'''Lennox''': *shoves gun against Agent's chest* "I'm gonna to count to ''three''."
* Captain Lennox is pretty cool throughout the movie, but his [=CMoA=] is definitely during the final battle, where he charges Blackout on a motorcycle at high speed, jumps off the motorcycle and ''slides under'' Blackout to deliver a point-blank shot with a grenade launcher.
* The fact that Shia [=LaBeouf=] as Sam improvised most of his rant about how the Autobots were messing up the backyard, and Peter Cullen, recording his lines in some studio miles away, goes 'Calm down, calm down' in perfect comedic timing.



* Ironhide using his cannons to propel himself in the air and somersaulting in mid-air. And that was before dodging missiles from Brawl, while transforming.
* Another one goes to Ratchet who uses a buzzsaw. to cut off one of Brawl's arms.
* How about when the Sector Seven agents are taking the kids away, and suddenly their car is lifted several feet into the air by a 30 foot pissed off robot? While the agents can just stare up at Optimus, Prime delivers a line that would make a sane man shit himself: "Taking the children was a ''bad move''.... Autobots, relieve them of their weapons." Prime scorning these humans who had moments before been total dicks, followed by Jazz using a massive magnet to hijack all of the Agent's weapons and reducing them to being nothing more than fleshy slag, is quite endearing.
-->'''Sam Witwicky''': I'd like to introduce my friend, Optimus Prime.
* The F-22 attack on Megatron stands as one for the US military. He had been in an even fight with Optimus Prime, but a single salvo of human missiles brought him to his knees.
* Starscream taking on several F-22s, seamlessly shifting between his jet and robot form, and destroying about half of them [[spoiler: before hiding among them and seemingly taking part in the attack on Megatron]].
** A few minutes earlier, Starscream plays SteppingStonesInTheSky with F-22s.
* Any scene with Megatron in the first movie. ''Any''. Let's just start with when the big guy is unfrozen. '''"[[OhCrap I. AM. MEGATRON!]]"''', he says before he begins a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* Mikaela driving Bumblebee in the big finale.

to:

'''Lennox''': *shoves (''shoves gun against Agent's chest* chest'') "I'm gonna to count to ''three''."
* The scene of Bumblebee shrinking the Allspark is the ''second'' most magical scene of the movie; watching this thing, millions of years old and bigger than a house, turning into something the size of a football... it's amazing.
* Simmons, Keller, and Maggie get into a shootout with Frenzy. The Decepticon loses.
* Bonecrusher attacks the Autobots on the highway, even smashing a bus to splinters of metal. Then Optimus does a running transformation, and the battle is joined.
** At one point, Bonecrusher punches Optimus; he isn't fazed. The Autobot leader returns the blow, so hard that you can see the Decepticon's ''[[EyeScream eye pop out]]'' while in slow motion.
** He then stabs him in the face and decapitates him.
** In the ComicBookAdaptation and {{Novelization}}, Optimus ended up killing Barricade immediately after.
* Brawl appears as a tank rolling down Mission City's Main Street, which is awesome in and of itself. But then Jazz jumps on him in the most faithful re-creation of a shot from the G1 movie in this entire film. Once Brawl transforms, it takes three Autobots and the human soldiers to even slow him down; Ratchet uses a buzzsaw to hack off one of his arms!
** Ironhide using his cannons to propel himself in the air and somersaulting in mid-air. And that was before dodging missiles from Brawl, while transforming.
* When Megatron is finally freed, he screams to the humans nearby, '''[[PuncuatedForEmphasis "I. Am. MEGATRON!"]]''' Then he begins a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
** Once Megatron gets to the city, he grabs an [[DefiantToTheEnd ever defiant Jazz,]] flies him to a roof, and ''[[HalfTheManHeUSedToBe tears him in half.]]''
** Then Optimus arrives, to a blaring theme-tune, and transforms in the third most beautiful shot this film has. He challenges Megatron, and the battle that follows is glorious.
*** To wit: Megatron flies down, at a speed hard to follow, and Optimus jumps onto his jet form; they crash ''through'' a building, and wrestle in the street, trading one-liners.
--> '''Megatron:''' Humans don't deserve to live.\\
'''Optimus:''' They deserve to choose for themselves!\\
'''Megatron:''' Then you will die ''with them!'' Join them in extinction!
* Sam refusing to give Megatron the Allspark, and being hurled off a building for it. He then uses his family's motto to explain to Optimus why he just gave Megatron a giant middle finger.
--> '''Sam:''' No sacrifice, no victory.
* Mikaela hijacks a tow truck and uses it to drive an injured Bumblebee into battle; together, they do what three other Autobots and half the human soldiers could not do: kill Brawl.
* Captain Lennox is pretty cool throughout the movie, but gets his [=CMoA=] is definitely greatest [=CMOA=] during the final battle, where he charges Blackout on a motorcycle at high speed, jumps off the motorcycle and ''slides under'' Blackout to deliver a point-blank shot [[GroinAttack crotch-shot]] with a grenade launcher.
* The fact that Shia [=LaBeouf=] as Sam improvised most of his rant about how the Autobots were messing up the backyard, and Peter Cullen, recording his lines in some studio miles away, goes 'Calm down, calm down' in perfect comedic timing.

Megatron in leaps off the first movie. ''Any''. Let's just start roof and tackles Optimus into the street. Optimus sends Sam to hide with the Allspark, then challenges his former brother-in-arms using the most iconic phrase of the franchise:
---> '''Optimus:''' At the end of this day, one shall stand; one shall fall.
** And
when Optimus cannot defeat Megatron, he asks Sam to [[HeroicSacrifice unite the big guy is unfrozen. '''"[[OhCrap I. AM. MEGATRON!]]"''', he says before he begins Cube with his spark.]] Megatron demands Sam give it to him. The boy [[TakeAThirdOption chooses a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.

* Optimus closes the film much like he opened it, with a grand speech; this time, accepting his race's eventual fate and saying those who remain should enjoy the time on their new home, Earth.

* Frenzy hacking and sneaking off Air Force One by doing the following:
-->'''1:''' Casually walking into an elevator, shifting to boombox mode and fooling an unsuspecting hostess.
-->'''2:''' Avoiding being detected when he's ''right next'' to said hostess. In robot mode.
-->'''3:''' Planting a virus into [=AF1=] and the Pentagon, then single-handedly killing the guards that come to investigate.
-->'''4:''' Strutting right past a multitude of cops, then getting into Barricade's car mode and [[FlippingTheBird flipping them]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny all off.]]

to:

* Say what you want about [[TheScrappy Sam Witwicky,]] he saved two grand and managed to convince his teacher to give him three A's in high school just so he could get a car. Not easy.
* Sam's story about his great-times-a-thousand grandfather Archibald may have ended badly, but it's quite epic and inspiring; he took an entire ship so far north they all nearly froze to death, and convinced them with nothing more than his own unshakable faith to continue.
--> '''Archibald Witwicky:''' [[ArcWords No sacrifice,]] [[CatchPhrase no victory!]] We'll get to the Artic Circle lads.
* The entirety of the battle against Scorponok.
** It begins with the initial desert attack, where Scorponok's tail [[EnemyRisingBehind rises eerily out of the desert]] behind Lennox, and his soldiers have a mass OhCrap before shooting up the sand.
** In town, Lennox needs a phone to call the Pentagon, and he has to go through some telemarketer in India. Somehow, he manages to keep relatively calm and get the generals on the phone, even providing some funny moments.
---> '''Lennox:''' Epps, I need a credit card!
** Three words: ''Bring the rain''. The A-10's and AC-130 lay down a hellstorm on Scorponok that the Decepticons will never forget.
** The [[BadassBystander villagers]] get one too. They could have been hostile to the U.S Special Forces team, and they wouldn't have been unjustified in feeling that they brought Scorponok to them. Instead, they start grabbing bolt action rifles and revolvers and fight alongside Lennox and his team despite their own comparatively pitiful firepower. And they show no anger or regret over their massive casualties.
* Frenzy hacking and sneaking off hacks into Air Force One by doing the following:
-->'''1:''' Casually walking
One's secure military connection:
## He transforms to robot mode, sneaks
into an the elevator, shifting and then reverts to boombox mode ''as the hostess walks in''.
## He then transforms again
and fooling an unsuspecting hostess.
-->'''2:''' Avoiding being detected when he's ''right next''
hides under a table. And the hostess never sees him. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplementary material]] says he has a [[RuleOfCool hologram projector.]]
## He managed
to said hostess. In robot mode.
-->'''3:''' Planting
plant a virus into while extracting the [[TheBadGuyWins information the Decepticons want.]] When guards come to investigate, he kills them all in seconds and hides in boombox mode; no one knows he was there.
## Once
[=AF1=] and is on the Pentagon, then single-handedly killing the guards that come to investigate.
-->'''4:''' Strutting right
ground, Frenzy struts past a multitude of cops, then getting the many, many cops to get into Barricade's car mode and mode. He then [[FlippingTheBird flipping flips them]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny all off.]]]]
* Bumblebee versus Barricade
** Before the fight even begins, we get an inkling of how epic it will be by the phrase etched onto Barricade's rear-quarter panel: ''To Punish and Enslave''.
** Sam is running from Barricade. He gets bogged down by keeping Mikaela from getting herself killed. Barricade is almost on top of them. That's when Bumblebee [[Big Damn Heroes slides into]] [[CarFu his legs]] and encourages the kids to climb in. No, that isn't the awesome part. The awesome part is when they are fleeing the scene and Barricade rolls over like an animal, lunges forward, and transforms into car mode in midair! Immediately followed by the car chase with [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome rockin' background music.]] The scene was so amazing, it elicited ''applause'' in theatres.
** Bumblebee transforms into robot form, standing defensively over Sam and Mikaela. Then Barricade leaps forward and kicks Bumblebee in the face, sending him flying into the distance. Bumblebee looks up, shakes it off and rolls back to his feet and returns the favor in one swift motion.
** Mikaela chopping Frenzy's head off is another amazing moment for the human race; and Sam kicking his still living face is quite satisfying, even if it does screw them over later.
** Once the fight is over, Bee drives them away unharmed. Meanwhile, Barricade is lying in a ditch as a pile of scrap. When it comes to Sam's safety, [[MamaBear Bee ain't playing around.]]
* The Autobot's arrival is awesome in a way that surpasses words. It is... magical. The track [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome "Arrival to Earth"]] is so iconic of the film, it is the only piece to be used in all the films thus far; Steve Jablonksy did amazing work.
** The majesty of that scene can be accredited to the music; but its awesomeness goes deeper. The way each of the Autobots scans their alternate modes, while avoiding the general public, ''becoming'' the iconic heroes we know. The crash scene in the countryside where Optimus came down; Ironhide rising from the pool as a scared little girl clutches her [[ShoutOut My Little Pony doll.]]
** It's hard to tell if it is [[TakeThatMe self deprecation]] or just [[Creator/MichaelBay Michael Bay's]] AwesomeEgo showing through, but one of the bystanders at Ratchet's crash site says that it's, "A thousand times cooler than {{Film/Armageddon}}!"
** It ends with all of the Autobots transforming on-screen in a beautiful rotating panorama. The shot of Optimus leaning down towards Sam is just... incredible. [[SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound And then Peter Cullen speaks]].










* Probably the moment when you realize just how insane the fights were going to be was the first robot confrontation between Bumblebee and Barracade. Bumblebee stands protecting Sam and Mikaela and Barricade leaps forward like a predatory animal and kicks Bumblebee in the face, sending him flying into the distance. Bumblebee looks up, shakes it off and rolls back to his feet and returns the favor in one swift motion.
** Made even better when Sam and Mikaela are driving away in the unhurt Bumblebee-- and Barricade is lying on his back as mostly twisted wreckage. Bumblebee is a FEROCIOUS animal when Sam is in danger.
** In the prelude to their fight, when Bumblebee first rescues Sam and Mikaela before driving off, the follow-up shot of Barricade storming out of the garage, and transforming into his car mode to pursue while charging at the camera ''elicited applause''.

* Blackout laying waste to the SOCCENT base in the beginning of the film
** The commander of the base gets a mild one for managing to cut the information feed off from him.

to:

* The year was 1986. An animated film is released, to little applause, based on a fairly successful Saturday morning cartoon. Years pass, and the series is relegated to a mere toy franchise with the occasional fanfiction. One decent [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars CGI cartoon-]] [[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines and its sequel.]] A few [[Anime/TransformersArmada anime near]] [[Anime/TransformersEnergon the turn]] [[Anime/TransformersCybertron of the millennium.]] Many short-lived comic series(es). But never again did the series enjoy its same popularity. And then this movie comes along, with a rather brilliant advertising campaign, and the hype is real.
* The film opens with the Hasbro and studio logos. It is quite ominous. But then...
--> [[AC:Optimus Prime:]] ''Before time began, there was... '''the Cube.'''''
** The true awesomeness of this, for those who have not watched the movie (why?) or lacking brain cells, is the return of Peter Cullen to the voice role of Optimus Prime after more than 20 years.
** On a side note, [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome the CGI]] used to render the Allspark's fall through space is simply beautiful.
* Blackout laying waste to the SOCCENT base in Qatar is a visual feast and clearly shows just how much of a threat the beginning Decepticons are; it's also the first time any of the film
robots transform on screen. ''And it looks so real''.
** The commander of Several CMOA go to the base gets a mild one for managing humans in that base. They never forget their duty, true soldiers. [[PunnyName Colonel Sharp]] picks up an ax to cut stop the information feed off alien attacker from him.getting the information. This after getting a first hand look at the monstrosity.
** Lennox, Epps, and the rest of their team manage to not only survive, but wound Blackout enough that he sends Scorponok after them.

** "[[CatchPhrase Freedom is the right of all sentient beings]]."
* This exchange between Agent Simmons and Captain Lennox:
-->'''Simmons''': "I'm gonna to count to five."\\
'''Lennox''': *shoves gun against Agent's chest* "I'm gonna to count to ''three''."
* Captain Lennox is pretty cool throughout the movie, but his [=CMoA=] is definitely during the final battle, where he charges Blackout on a motorcycle at high speed, jumps off the motorcycle and ''slides under'' Blackout to deliver a point-blank shot with a grenade launcher.
* The fact that Shia [=LaBeouf=] as Sam improvised most of his rant about how the Autobots were messing up the backyard, and Peter Cullen, recording his lines in some studio miles away, goes 'Calm down, calm down' in perfect comedic timing.
* Probably the moment when you realize just how insane the fights were going to be was the first robot confrontation between Bumblebee and Barracade. Bumblebee stands protecting Sam and Mikaela and Barricade leaps forward like a predatory animal and kicks Bumblebee in the face, sending him flying into the distance. Bumblebee looks up, shakes it off and rolls back to his feet and returns the favor in one swift motion.
** Made even better when Sam and Mikaela are driving away in the unhurt Bumblebee-- and Barricade is lying on his back as mostly twisted wreckage. Bumblebee is a FEROCIOUS animal when Sam is in danger.
** In the prelude to their fight, when Bumblebee first rescues Sam and Mikaela before driving off, the follow-up shot of Barricade storming out of the garage, and transforming into his car mode to pursue while charging at the camera ''elicited applause''.
* Ironhide using his cannons to propel himself in the air and somersaulting in mid-air. And that was before dodging missiles from Brawl, while transforming.
* Another one goes to Ratchet who uses a buzzsaw. to cut off one of Brawl's arms.
* How about when the Sector Seven agents are taking the kids away, and suddenly their car is lifted several feet into the air by a 30 foot pissed off robot? While the agents can just stare up at Optimus, Prime delivers a line that would make a sane man shit himself: "Taking the children was a ''bad move''.... Autobots, relieve them of their weapons." Prime scorning these humans who had moments before been total dicks, followed by Jazz using a massive magnet to hijack all of the Agent's weapons and reducing them to being nothing more than fleshy slag, is quite endearing.
-->'''Sam Witwicky''': I'd like to introduce my friend, Optimus Prime.
* The F-22 attack on Megatron stands as one for the US military. He had been in an even fight with Optimus Prime, but a single salvo of human missiles brought him to his knees.
* Starscream taking on several F-22s, seamlessly shifting between his jet and robot form, and destroying about half of them [[spoiler: before hiding among them and seemingly taking part in the attack on Megatron]].
** A few minutes earlier, Starscream plays SteppingStonesInTheSky with F-22s.
* Any scene with Megatron in the first movie. ''Any''. Let's just start with when the big guy is unfrozen. '''"[[OhCrap I. AM. MEGATRON!]]"''', he says before he begins a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* Mikaela driving Bumblebee in the big finale.
* The U.S. military gets one early in the movie with their coordinated ground forces, A-10, and AC-130, forcing Scorponok to actually retreat, leaving a piece of itself behind.
** The [[BadassBystander villagers]] get one too. They could have been hostile to the U.S Special Forces team, and they wouldn't have been unjustified in feeling that they brought Scorponok to them. Instead, they start grabbing bolt action rifles and revolvers and fight alongside Lennox and his team despite their own comparatively pitiful firepower.
* The first time we see Optimus transform from his truck mode to robot mode, [[SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound and Peter Cullen speaks]].
