Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Reviews
Good Points: Devastator. Seeing the Constructicons combine for the first time literally I just lost it and watched with amazement.
Bad Points:The humor in this movie is just awful. It mostly has effect on teenagers and kids, and I was not pleased with it. The storyline, although I know that's not important for a movie of this caliber, sucked. This franchise could be told greatly in story form, but has not succeeded so far. Many of the characters that I have loved in the old days are used here very pointlessly(Soundwave, Sideswipe and especially The Fallen). And the Twins Skids and Mudflap: All through the movie just annoying.
Terrible sequel. 1 out of 10
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Sadly though, copy and paste is really all this movie is, and in emulating all the flaws of its predecessor, it winds up even less inventive or exciting.
As a result, there's again absolutely nothing to engage you here - the characters are vastly under-written and have less life than the robots that dominate the screen (which really is saying something), the story is an over-serious and terribly complicated maze of un-interesting sub-plots that noone really cares about, and the product placement of actual products is almost as startling as the placement of women, who may as well be 'products' in the eyes of the film itself. As a result, you'll end up truly disengaged, uninterested and slightly wincing as the film proceeds for the entirety of its hugely overlong run-time here.
VERDICT: Another exceedingly dull and uninteresting film for me; 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' does nothing to shake things up after its predecessor. Come on Michael Bay, you can do better than this
