I was not hyped up to see this. At all. I was hyped up about the first one. Watched it advanced screening and all, but this one was just meh.
Michael bay was a little too explosion-happy with this one. And by little, I mean a lot. Seriously, two hours of explosions and 30 minutes of plot. This film would have been a lot better if Michael Bay wasn’t showing off how many explosions he could fit into one movie. The transformer twins and Sam’s new roommate were annoying. Megan Fox was just eye candy and played no real role in the film. On the other hand, Shia LeBouf was less annoying than in the first film, so I guess they get props for that.
I was initially excited to see Arcee, but she was on screen for about 5 minutes and was the collective name for 3 different bikes, which was weird.
Also, “The Fallen”? Seriously? Couldn’t they at least have come up with a name for him? Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen featuring new bad guy: “The Fallen”. WTF.
Oh, and Optimus dies. Like we haven’t seen that happen before.
The only good thing in this movie was grampa Jetfire who made me ROFLMAO so hard I nearly peed.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go dig up my copy of the 1986 animated film to get rid of the bad taste this sequel left in my mouth.
You got the touch! You got the powaaaaaaaah!
