Transformers, where to start? I really tried to like this film... I really did... but it was Michael Bay's usual stuff, what was I thinking? Mediocrity, is that even a word? Well that's what this film is. I was enjoying this movie, the first half, that is. This movie is way too long for what it delivers. No decent storyline with tons of awesome CGI? The special-effects were awesomely fantastic, those Robots looked amazing... yet it was used a bit TOO much. I got lost in the movie the last 40-50 minutes. What was going on? I have no idea. I just then realised at the end that Megatron had been killed by the cube, and all the happy gathering of the Autobots with Shia Labeouf (he did a good job in this film, made me not get bored) and the hot chick (she was just damn hot, can't say anything more about her), and I was telling my friends, "That's it?? What kind of crap is this... oh yeah, Michael Bay... typicall." My friends were giving me angry looks, they LOVED this film. I can't see why. The Robots fighting was way too long. It didn't grab my interest at all. I don't know why... I couldn't tell what was happening. It could have been way better, IMO, if the final 40 minutes had not happened. Too many shaking cameras... too much exaggerated CGI. Michael Bay, thank you for this film. You improved, yet still don't have the "touch" you seek.
Almost everyone has been praising this movie as the best Summer blockbuster... am I the only one that didn't enjoy it? I guess I am. Well, it's just my opinion. I don't know what to give this film, either 3 stars or 3.5... what the hell, I'll just give it 3.5 for the awesome special-effects.
UPDATE: I just rewatched this film, (due to many, many complaints among the people around me), and it was way better than when I first saw it. I understood it alot more. What was so difficult about it? Haha. Pure cheesy fun! It isn't a "deep" film. Just a good cheesy entertaining one. Sorry Michael Bay for my harsh review before. I was just too biased.
