Revenge of the Fallen was a very good action-packed scifi adventure. This sequel almost beat out the first. It had the more action involving battle scenes & explosions & lots of robots. There's only one reason why it didn't feel it was great as the first & that was the over the top humor it had in it. I just don't understand why Director Michael Bay would put all that in a summer action movie when thats all its really suppose to have is action. I just thought that was just so utterly disappointing to me. I mean what was Michael Bay thinking about transformers? He made them act so stupid thoughout where they do sexual things & curse just like the humans do. Michael also thought it would be good to give robot balls. I thought that was going over the line right there. Everything else was good. Only if they left out all that humor, this one would be better than the first but it didn't come out like that. The reason why I'm not watering down this movie no more than 4 stars is b/c I really enjoyed this film. It's one thats just watch & have fun experiencing. I think what saved this movie for me was the battle sequences. They were off the chain especially the last battle that was the greatest I've ever seen in any action movie. That scene will defeniely go down as the best memorable action scenes ever filmed. There's nothing to say about the acting b/c this film wasn't made for that. It was only made to watch the alien robots battle it out & thats exactly what it gave me. Overall, Revenge of the Fallen is nowhere near perfect or great but it's really good time if you make it like that. Revenge of the Fallen is a high explosive scifi thrill ride thats filled with nonstop action that's driven with humor & astonishing entertainment.
3 1/2 stars
