    A well-oiled, loudly revving summer action vehicle that does all that's required, and then some, within the confines of PG-13: It cracks genitalia jokes, messes around with toys and blows stuff up.
  2. 63
    At least the special effects in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen are remarkable: You never tire of the endless variations of robots Bay and his computer-generated effects crew come up with.
  3. With its intelligence at the level of the simple-minded, however, the film is not likely to attract moviegoers who seek something more than a screen filled with kaleidoscopes of colored metal. Fan boys will no doubt love it, but for the uninitiated it's loud, tedious and, at 147 minutes, way too long.
  4. 38
    The storyline is so infantile that it will appeal to young kids.
  5. Fox's cleavage is the only camera object that catches Bay's attention for more than a millisecond.

    Much of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is simply despicable.
  7. 0
    Transformers 2 has a shot at the title Worst Movie of the Decade.

    The story was weak and the humor was just plain silly. But having said that, it is one of my favorite movies. Here's why. The presentation of this movie is flawless. The action is perfect and dazzling. Explosions and metal pieces galore. Many scenes, especially the forest fight scene, play out like a symphony orchestra. So what this movie lacks and screws up, makes up for it 100 fold. Expand

    No where near as bad as everyone makes it out to be, its just a good old action filled movie for your entertainment not to make you think about whats happening and its not trying to be a masterpeice! Expand

    Transformers Revenge of the Fallen was probably the best movie I paid to see this summer. I have read so many reviews about plot holes and robots who act like the stereotypical black man. Plot holes: it's funny cause I do not see one example of the plot holes in these reviews. Every time I watch the movie I dont notice any plot holes. As for the stereotypes, If dave chappelle or ice cube would have made this movie would it be an issue. No. Both have used stereotypes in thier films you know why? Because they are funny. Megan Fox's character was so different in this movie because Sam brought out her true self or did you not get that from the first movie. It is one of the reasons she likes him.She does not have to pretend to be anything she is not around him. The only reason I did not give this movie a perfect score is for two reasons. Number one is that during the battle in Shanghai it is very hard to tell who is who and whats going on most of the time. Second reason: Although she is beautiful Megan Fox's acting is not on par with the rest of the cast and it stands out. If you put a bruised apple in the middle of a bunch perfect ones you will notice. Some times its hard to believe she loves Shia's character. All together though Transformers 2 will blow you away with explosive robotic battles and keep the laughs rolling with the funny cast. A must see for anyone who loves comedy, action, and a little lame romance all bundled into a great movie. Expand

    It's not as good as the first, but if it weren't about 45 minutes way too long, this would be a solid 8. It starts and ends well, but it drags to an excruciating degree in the middle. At well over two hours, I started to get exhausted by shaky cameras and clanking metal at one point. The degree of swearing and strange abundance of testicle jokes (seriously, go in and start counting) makes it a strong PG-13, but most of the humor is pretty funny. It's worth seeing once if you're into Michael Bay movies, but if you ever pick up the DVD, I guarantee that you'll be fast-forwarding quite a bit during the slow middle and probably notice the quantity of testicle jokes.

    This is an embarrassing script for all Transformer fans. The film looks good with its big budget, but by the end of this film you just don't care about anything. Expand

    Incoherent and amateurish. More like a 2 1/2 hour demolition derby than a movie. A plot stolen from your stereotypical "You cannot defeat me haha! Only a Prime can haha!" Japanese Anime beat-em-up. Oh yeah the twins clearly are racist. Dead give-a-way are the big Obama ears (from political cartoons) and when Shia says the line "Don't pop a cap in me alright?" Expand

    Boring, too long, too loud, too much BAY! Someone please tell Speilberg to drop this guy, I was under the impression Speilberg was a story teller, but Michael Bay has no clue how to tell a story. Worst film of the year and racist with it. Expand
