After the last movie, you'd hope they'd prioritize selling April as a talented, independent journalist. T&A can have its place, but stripping April down for the male gaze really doesn't sit right with me. Especially when she's the sole major woman character in the damn movie. I'm used to Bay movies objectifying women, but if that's what's happening in this case, it feels especially disappointing.

remember that scene from x-men first class, where Rose Byrne, stripped down, and told her partner something like, im gonna use skills the FBI didnt give me...I was like, really? and I kinda the same way here, hopefully its brief.
