I have no idea what else was to be expected from a 3-d action movie. From the trailers alone you could tell this was intended for the God Of War video game crowd. You wanted engaging narrative and character development? Jeez. Just unplug your critical brains and enjoy the spectacle.

This is definitely not directed to the God of War crowd. With the nice twist of Greek mythology in those games, these movies are just trash.

Thank you! I laugh at the people expecting some dramatic epic with perfect, flowing dialogue, witty humor, etc etc. This is a mindless action movie, it was marketed as a mindless action movie, it is targeted to people who just want to go watch a fun, exciting, action-packed film. If you hate this kind of movie then why would you bother to go see it? That makes YOU the idiot lol

That's how I feel too! I go into these types of movies knowing very well that they will be empty on "engaging narrative" and "character development" and whatever other elements that make a "good" movie. I won't go to these movies if I'm expecting these things. I don't have much of a mind so these movies will do lol! ;-)

I read that article yesterday. That is the most tired argument anyone makes to defend movies that suck, and it's always stupid people who say it. ALWAYS.

James R, you do realize that Cracked.com is a satire site? Their articles aren't something that you really take seriously.

what?!?!?!?
of course they are suppose to be taken seriously!
just because is a saritical site does not mean is not telling relevant things.
that´s like saying that Red letter media is not supposed to be taken seriously for the star wars reviews.
look at one of Cracked articles,are you not going to take this seriously? :http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-things-both-atheists-believers-need-to-stop-saying/

no you can't just unplug your critical brains and enjoy the spectacle because the spectacles just keep getting worse and worse and less engaging and entertaining remember when movies used to be good

So by that logic... I should enjoy a movie about a guy painting a barn for 90 minutes because it is not suppose to be anything but a guy painting a barn? Did it ever occur to you that clever character interactions and good dialogue can enhance an action movie? I love action movies... I do not like dumb action movies or the dullards that tell folks that don't like dumb action movies, that they are idiots.

because a guy painting a barn is the same as an over the top action movie with 3d special effects?

Mi hermano, has hecho el comentario más estupido, falto de cultura, inteligencia y seriedad que haya podido leer en este sitio. Ya te imaginarás que tan ridículo es.

Put Shia Labeouf with some corny one liners with a sexy girlfriend, some stereotypical characters and split the plot in several non important events. Done, you now have Michael Bay's stamp of approval.

Michael Bay has been making special effect movies before Shia Labeuof came into his career, so you need a better insult than that.

I don't know, I thought that was a pretty good insult. Take it, fanboy.

Fuck you. Micheal Bays tried to be a good director okay he did good on Pearl Harbor, Transformers, Transformers: Dark of the Moon so it might better if Micheal directed to your mom and it will suck so don't talk trash of Micheal Bay.

Hey, "dumbass", he didn't say that Bay directed it. Now I know you're super eager to flame this guy (apparently), but at least read what the man said and get it straight before you start raging.
