Terrible, terrible movie. Michael Bay tends to follow a set formula for his films and, typically, they work. However, this time it failed horribly. From the very first few minutes of the film that, of course, is full of action and explosions, to more than half way through the film, I couldn't stop looking at the time and wondering how the hell I could sit through the rest of the film. That first scene failed to grab my attention at all. I can't put my finger on what it was, but it just sucked. There was too much focus and introduction of various Autobots and Decepticons that simply died thirty seconds later. Yes, it's a movie about Transformers, but at the same time, you put in too many insignificant characters and you start loosing people's interest. To be honest, the only scenes I actually enjoyed were the ones with the Marines (or whatever their Spec-Op's team is called). Those type of action scenes are ones where Bay actually excels at and in Transformers he didn't fail to please. The Twins... ugg, I wanted to kill myself every time they made an appearance on screen.

The CGI was so-so. Some scenes were absolutely fantastic for it, others were horrible. Many of the shots with the robots looked like they were quickly added in and never fully rendered and blended in with the rest of the scene. This was very obvious in the first half of the film, especially in the close up one-on-one fights between Autobots and Decepticons.

Lots of very obvious flaws in the movie, but hey... it's a Bay action film about childhood toys. It was never going to win an Oscar for it's elaborate script or deep plot, nor for shot continuity or believability.

That said...

It needed more slow motion shots of Fox!!!


On top of that, does anyone here think that Optimus sounded a lot more violent? Either I mixed it up with the Optimus from Beast Wars, or the movie Optimus was a lot more arrogant.

I completely agree. The Optimus from G1 was a lot more noble and virtuous. This Revenge Of The Fallen Optimus seemed to be out for Decepticon blood.

After hearing all the reviews I went in with low expectations and came out very satisfied.
I don't really get why people complain about a movie like Transformers having a lame plot. It wasn't that bad to be honest, and who expects an action movie like this one to have Oscar-worthy writing?

I haven't seen it yet, but this is my thinking:

1. It's Michael "Blow-Shit-Up" Bay
2. It's based on a kid's cartoon
3. Which was based on a toy
4. Which makes it a two-hour freakin' COMMERCIAL

It's hard to get expectations up too high when you take all that into consideration.

That said, I'm really looking forward to seeing it on the big screen!

Batman wasn't done by Michael Bay... nor was it based on a toy or a *KIDS'* cartoon.

It was a comic for kids. Transformers was also made into a comic. As is Spider-man, X-Men, and any other superhero you can think of. They all fall under the same category.
