  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

    I think this time Michael Bay overdo with the explosions and slow motions "Yea man we all know that you love explosions and slow motions alsoI think this time Michael Bay overdo with the explosions and slow motions "Yea man we all know that you love explosions and slow motions also the volume up but that's just to much" and in the background of the crappy plot it was just exhausting to watch .And the actors contributed alot to this failure Megan Fox play was so boring and unprofessional that she pass this mood in too the film .It's not only she i think everyone were so lazy this time they even use scenes that were in the first part scenes that were in the beginning of the movie they just didn't put any effort. And the biggest fail was the plot the hole movie was just no sense there are a war between humanity and aliens and they focus out attention to teenage problems and when we have to get in to the movie they messed up the hole story .And in the end you stay and watch 2 hours movie with explosions , fights and no plot and story .Total FAIL.

    I was laughing all through the movie, but not at what Bay was hoping I would laugh at. This movie was a poorly planned, poorly designed,I was laughing all through the movie, but not at what Bay was hoping I would laugh at. 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

    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 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.
