This movie delivered exactly what it advertised: that feeling of being a kid again with a Cherry Bomb in one hand and a roll of toilet paper in the other, while wondering how you can use the two to make the most destruction. Be it the mailbox, the toilet, or the neighbors cat? something is going to go BOOM! And this movie delivers on that single energy. People complaining about excessive explosions or high actions sequences have yet to grasp what a Michael Bay film promises. This is not ?The Piano?, and to ever try and equate it to it is far from a reasonable comparison. This movie was a success at furthering the reason for humans in this intergalactic conflict, bringing back into focus the importance and difference that the smallest of individuals can bring to the table. The length was perfect and hardly noticeable. The re-introduction of John Turturro?s character was just a boast of humor that the movie needed while the introduction of new characters such as the Twins was great for added laughter. Bonus Note: Finally this movie puts into perspective how good (ie. Optimus Prime) can throw down just as well, if not better, than their evil counterparts.
Fantastic movie? I can?t wait for the next installment to see how it develops further.
