Pure. Popcorn. Entertainment. That's an exact classification of director Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Think of Transformers 1 on crack. In other words, this sequel took all of the extreme elements that made fans love the first movie and increased them exponentially. The action is nonstop, with battles and explosions from start to finish. The camera (without any subtlety) exploits Megan Fox's hotness to the max. As if she weren't enough, a new sex kitten (Isabel Lucas) is thrown into the equation. Shia LaBeouf is as charismatic as ever, and fills the starring role with ease. And then there's the humor. Sam's parents (Kevin Dunn and Julie White)provided some semi-raunchy laugh-out-loud moments in the first movie, but now they take it to the next level. Sometimes it seems like they are trying a little too hard, but it is still hilarious.
As far as the “plot” goes, the writers didn't waste much time--it's really just a context for the giant-robot death matches and dramatic slow-mo sequences. The movie kicks off two years later where the Autobots have formed an alliance with the U.S. government, creating an elite team led by Major Lennox (Josh Duhamel), in an effort to snuff out any remaining Decepticons that show up. The bad guys keep coming, and it turns out that a much more menacing force than Megatron is out there--and it is looking for something on Earth that is tied to the very origin of the Transformers race. Fans of the franchise will be delighted by the addition of many new robot characters (there are well over 40 in the sequel, versus only 13 in the first). The second Transformers has shaped up to be one of the worst reviewed and most successful movies of all time. This strange pairing is really just an indication that this movie has one purpose: to entertain. The creators didn't want to waste time bogging down the action and drama with substance--which was arguably a good decision. --Jordan Thompson

So just sit back and enjoy the what's on screen great movie, I also shed a few tears for what happened to Optimus in this one lol
This is a movie to make you say "wow". Not because it's great, or the special effects are any good (they're not) -- just because Transformers 2 messes things up even more than the first one did.
For example, the dialogue is geared towards kiddies, just like the old cartoon was. Then, mixed in the middle of all that kiddie dialogue, is Megan Fox wearing a tank top, then Megan Fox wearing leather chaps, then Megan Fox stripping off those chaps...just who is this movie for? It's either geared for kids with no consideration at all for throwing all this sexual imagery at you, or it's geared for adults (males) and really dumbed down.
All that would be forgivable if this movie had a plot, or characters, or even decent CG effects. The effects were so bad, clearly the crew only had so much time and budget to finish. So when you see a robot called "The Doctor" manipulate Sam's (Shia Labouf) face, it looks like something out of Roger Rabbit, or Star Wars Episode I. When robots are getting blown apart, you see little pieces of junk flying off them, but they don't look real at all -- it looks like little cartoon pieces of junk. Everything just looks fake, completely fake. Except the explosions. Those look real (because they were real) and there's a lot of them.
So many opportunities squandered.Read more ›
Fallen box, shrink wrapped and everything, and when I opened the case, inside was the original (first) Transformers movie. My son was excited about seeing the second movie and he was terribly disappointed. Dissatisfied is an understatement to say the least!
I guess to sum up, I want to know why people watch stuff like this AND consider it "good" or "great" or whatever the comments here say. Do people not know how to think critically anymore? Are we that brainwashed by TV that we actually want to just "turn our brains off" and watch images on a screen? Think about that for a second! Just give that thought one second of your time, please!
Shia Lebeouf returns as Sam,as his friend Optimus Prime continues his fight to eliminate the Decpeticon threat throughout the world(and in space).Sam discovers a piece of the Allspark in his house which melts through the floor to bring to life all the appliances in his house,wreaking alot of unwanted havoc.Optimus approaches Sam saying that the Decepticons are amassing again and the time has come that he needs his help.Sam,incredulously considering all that has past in the first movie,refuses to help!!He's off to college and can't be bothered??? Sam,in keeping with all that has gone on,should have been right there,no questions.This illogical plot thread creates a rift from which the movie never recovers.
Sam goes to college but the inevitable conflict follows him,much to his chagrin(what did he really expect?).In fact he does everything to avoid getting involved.His roommates we discover even run an internet alien conspiracy theory site;how convenient!The fight eventually engulfs Sam and his girlfriend who have no choice but to join Optimus and company in their fight against the Decepticons.Their journey goes worldwide and Megatron is(of course) released and in turn releases the Fallen,the evil head of the Decepticons.Read more ›
