  1. The sequence serves no real purpose beyond dazzle for dazzle's sake, but when you're watching it, that's purpose enough.

    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.

    2 1/2 hours of tumescence disguised as a motion picture.
  5. 38
    The storyline is so infantile that it will appeal to young kids.
  6. 30
    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 ofThe 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

    Loved it. its exactly what i wanted in a movie. something to take me away.

I suppose if I was a movie critic and al lI did with my life was watch movies, or was some netflix snob wannabe-critic) like some of the sad people who trash this movie, ok maybe i'd think different. But to your normal person who has a job and just wants to be entertained... this was purely fantastic. Expand

    Absolutely stunning movie for my wife and myself! I myself was a fan of the original Transformers, though admittedly not as big as I could Absolutely stunning movie for my wife and myself! I myself was a fan of the original Transformers, though admittedly not as big as I could have been never fully watching or reading any of the series, and my wife was never into them or saw anything of them practically at all. We both agreed that the movie was good though. It was fast paced, which apparently must have lost most critics I guess, because everyone seems to think their was no plot. We had no trouble with it though, and it made for such an entertaining movie, neither of us wanted to get up to use the bathroom. I thought there was a lot more Transformers action in this one, which was fun. I didn't have trouble distinguishing the bots like most critics seemed to, though admittedly it would have been a 10 in my book if they had simply gave them a little more time to get to know a couple characters in full like we do with the twins. It seemed to me that a lot was given to characterize robots. People also seem to complain about the twins being racist, but I didn't see it as racist until I heard critics arguing about it. I see plenty of kids acting like that, and believe me, it's not limited to Black, Hispanic, OR Caucasian people. It's just a dialect becoming very ambiguous between gangbanger types of all races, so why does it have to be racist? They're robots. They aren't any color but red and green. The notion that they're a black stereotype is only in the minds of the viewer, which is where the racism really lies. I also thought the treatment of the human-sided plot was interesting and playful. It's a shame most critics think so poorly of the fanservicey moment of Megan Fox's character at the beginning, though they seem to take that moment and blow it out of proportion. If you only read the critics (which I did before seeing it so expecting it to be very sexist) you would get a completely different idea of the character then what she was. The movie had a comic-book styled idea on sex appeal, with the sexual tension on the surface instead of what most movies fall to nowadays, simply having a full on sex scene right out of a porno. Great movie!! Expand

    Transformers Revenge of the Fallen is the most dissapointing movie of the summer by far. I never agree with critics ( there overpaid assholes Transformers Revenge of the Fallen is the most dissapointing movie of the summer by far. I never agree with critics ( there overpaid assholes to me) but the movie is far from being good. The plot.? There is no Plot. Most of the Autobots and Decepticons are annoying and stupid, Especially those too black wanna be robots. And worst of all. THE MOVIE IS BORING!. You wait a good hour or so to actually start getting into it. Then when the actions on and your gaining interest it ends but so abrutly. I encourage everybody to go see for yourself as it is the most anticapted sequel this year, but dont be expecting high hopes. 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 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
