TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Review
TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN (Watch Trailer here) just rolled out this weekend and here is a low down on what to expect and not to expect.
First let’s talk about what you should expect. This Transformers iteration has taken the special effects to a whole new level. I have to admit that I usually like Michael Bay movies because he is a master at making things look bigger than they really are. He really came through here again. The robot fights are just pure joy for anyone who enjoys to watch a good beat down on screen.
A lot of people out there complained that the special effects overwhelmed the movie. I have one thing to say to those people:
So the Frak What?
It’s called TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN and the key word here is “TRANSFORMERS“. I don’t expect to have some oscar winning script or acting but I do expect high grade, CGI driven robot fight and boy, did Mr Bay deliver.
Second, let’s talk about what not to expect. Do not expect an original story or even decent acting. Although I like Shia Labeouf, I couldn’t really focus on his OK acting as I was distracted by the horrible acting from Megan Fox. Now, I am not trying to hate on Fox. She’s doing her thing and getting a lot of exposure for it. That does not mean that I am supposed to give her a pass for mediocre acting. I actually liked her better in the first one. Maybe because she had fewer lines.
Overall, I had a blast watching Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It was wicked fun and really did a good job of making this as big as I expected it to be. A must watch.
