Movie Review - Transformers: Revenge of the fallen





In truth, I had high expectation for the movie. Maybe too high and the movie never reached my expectation. In fact, I would say it scored low...

Before I explain why, I would like to thank an unnamed benefactor for the free ticket to the first preview in Malaysia for Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen at Cineleisure tonight.

Next, onto the carnage that is called Transformers.

Look, let me explain before you fan-boys and fan-girls rip me to pieces and rain profanity on my blog. The movie is fan made. Simple as that, it is for the fan of Transformers and Micheal Bay or Bayformers if you would have it. The rest of you lot can either watch in silence as you wonder what the hell is going on, on-screen or watch in silence as all the carnage wreaks itself on screen, literally and metaphorically speaking.

At 2 hour and 30 minutes, this movie can best be summed up as long, loud and fun but the plot holes for and the Transformers reference to all this stuff that they never explain on the show just makes some of us feel left out. Then there is the storyline, what happened to that! Did someone went through the script with a chainsaw and mangled it? The glaring plot holes are just crazy! I am going to be spoiler free here but I'll be damned If I understand what goes on, on screen.

The fight scene is enormous and utterly gorgeous, with Optimus giving a world of hurt to the decepticon, the whole Bumblebee kungfu swashbuckling and every thing flying everywhere is just fun fun fun! But that's about it! I mean, the humor is there, the jokes are there, the quirky character was there and my gods, Megan Fox! Ouch!

All in all, let me put it this way. Transformers 2 is a fun movie to watch, but just leave your brain outside the cinema before you walk in because for the next 2 hour and 3o minutes, you won't need it. Oh and Micheal Bay? You are good with the explosive stuff but try to chuck in more storyline next time? If I would have to compare the 1st movie with the 2nd movie, I would say the 1st movie has better story and the 2nd movie has more things going boom.


Easter Egg: Try to spot the MAS logo on the opening scene.


The movie is not exactly a must watch, I would say, it tether on the brink of Have to Watch but only when all the fans have got their fill from the movie, for now. Stay back. Way back.
