  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.

    The storyline is so infantile that it will appeal to young kids.

    Much of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is simply despicable.

    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

The first hour and a half of the movie I almost laughed at myself for doubting this movie, then the point all the raters made came out. This movie has AMAZING special effects, with perfectly created fights that left me with goosebumps, however, that just wasn't enough. It is a long movie ((close to three hours I believe)) and it hits a very stagnant point about half way through. The acting, other than LeBeouf, is stale and lazy. I would recommend this movie if you're a fan of stylized fighting sequences, such as some DBZ type stuff. If that doesn't interest you, don't waste the time or money Expand

Fairly bad compared to its predecessor, and the action looks like exploding junkyards playing grab-ass. The humor was hardly chuckle-worthy in its best moments, and offensive in its worst. The plot has more holes in it than swiss cheese, and Megan Fox actually delivered a WORSE performance in here than she did in the first. If you are above the age of 12, then you need not apply Expand

This movie was a poorly planned, poorly designed, poorly executed mess. One would expect more character development in the second movie, but they were all more stereotypical and cliche than the first movie (read: "blackface" robots). Further, Bay blatantly ripped off sci-fi classics rather than come up with his own ideas. Megatron and the Fallen are basically Vader and the emperor. Then there was the Terminator ripoff taken to a ridiculous tongue-weapon extreme. This is not even to mention the elementary school plot and the god-awful acting! I would have given the movie a zero rating, except the effects and action sequences were pretty cool. This was the only thing that made the movie even mildly entertaining. Expand
