Some thoughts about Transformers 2...

So I watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earlier today and while I said "holy balls" on Twitter, it is entertaining and slightly better than the first movie, but not much. I don't want to go on an epic rant on what I liked and hated, but I'll leave in short form. (Potential SPOILERS, so read at your own risk if u haven't seen it yet).

  • More of the robots in disguise > human interaction
  • More fights between the Autobots and the Decepticons
  • Very Michael Bay-ish with lots of explosions
  • Something for everyone (Kids and nerds for the robots, the guys for crazy action and Megan Fox, and the ladies for Shia and Josh).
  • Longer than it should be (Its 2 and a half hours long!!)... Could be a better movie with some scenes taken out.
  • Humor feels forced and unnecessary
  • Predictable as expected... Would have been cool if a twist happened
  • The Fallen wasn't all that, but he looks cool though
  • Over-usage of the Linkin Park theme song (even though I like Linkin Park) just like the 1st movie.
I may seem nit picky but Transformers 2 is still an enjoyable summer blockbuster. It is obviously not the best movie out this season personally, but you're probably going to watch it anyway.

Thanks for your review. I'm going to watch it but just not run (I'll take a leisurely stroll) to the theater.
