Yet another review also declares the line to be indicative of a "Bush-era universe", as if Bay wrote the line himself (and also assuming that Bay is a hard-core conservative. He works in Hollywood, people. He may support the military, but he almost can't be an uber-conservative due to his job).
What bothers me is that not only does this kind of thing seem like more personal attacks on Bay (which are out of place in any decent publication's reviews), but if the reviewers had done maybe 10 minutes of online research (say, on the Teletraan-1 wikia), they'd know that Prime has been spouting his line since before Bush's dad was president. Moreover, what is so bad about freedom being a basic right? Isn't that in the hugging Declaration of Independence? What is so quintessentially "Bush" about it?
Anyway, rant over. Weigh in if you care to.
