Transformers 2 Review

I saw Transformers 2 Revenge of the FallenChevrolet had a special previewing on Tuesday June 23, 2009 at 7:30PM.  It was a lot of fun to be in the theater with family, friends and the employees from Art Gamblin Motors.

The question everyone asked right when the lights came on after the movie, “did you like it?”  After a great movie no one even asks if you like it, you just say, “that movie was great” or “that movie was sweet.”  So you heard a lot of did you like it.  My little sister Hillary said, “worse movie I have ever seen” and my good friend Mike saying “that movie was awesome and better than the first.”

Did I like Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen?

Yes, but I did not love it like I did the first Transformers.  I saw the original 5 times in the theater (yes I am a huge loser at times) but I plan on seeing Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen maybe a second time.

Instead of writing a long epistle of what I liked and disliked I will make it simple and make a top 10 list of what I liked and what I did not like.

Top 10 Things I liked:

10.  The Corvette Transformer – The new Transformer corvette was a concept Corvette that made the big screen and it sure looked good

9.  The Transformer Military team was a nice touch to incorporate them from the first movie

8.  The fight scene with Optimus Prime in the woods was the best fight scene of the movie

7.  The mom when on drugs randomly tackling the guy with the Frisbee, probably the funniest part of the movie.

6.  The Corvette chasing down the Audi and sawing it in half in the opening

5.  When Sam screams when the girl Transformer turns from human to Transformer.  Then having him explain it.

4.  Optimus Prime actually finally shows that he can fight compared to the first one where he gets his butt kicked most of the time.

3. Bumble Bee – I love the 2010 Camaro – It just looks good!

2.  The Action Scenes I felt were much better than the first movie.

1. Megan Fox – I was not much of a Megan Fox fan even after the Transformers 1 movie, I am now a changed man.

Top 10 Things I did not like:

10.  No real car chase – I felt like with all the cool vehicles in the movie they could have had a really cool car chase.  Like the Corvette vs.  Audi instead of 30 seconds and done.

9.   The twin Transformers were the Jar Jar Binks of Transformers 2

8.  Sam Witwicky’s attitude – In the first movie Sam was the dork and you sort of felt bad for him.  In the 2nd one he acted all tough and he had the hot girlfriend, he lost that appeal of relating to him.

7.  There were a lot of Transformers without knowing anything about them.  You did not know what they were good at or anything like that.

6.  The movie was a little drawn on out and very long

5.  A lot of fart/sex jokes – Do not get me wrong I am a huge fan of this type of humor but I felt it was a little over done and not really good fits for this type of movie.  Since when do robots find humans attractive and want to hump Megan Fox on the leg?

4.  Megan Fox acting like she is the damsel in distress – In the first movie she was tough and independent.  In the first one you would put money down that she could be Sam Witwicky in a fight!  Not in the second one and do not get me started on the sappy cheesy love lines!

3.  Sam Witwicky’s parents – They were more annoying in Transformers 2 than Transformers 1.  Since when does weed make you act like that!?

2.  Human weapons now hurt Transformers?  In the first movie it was pretty clear that Human weapons could not hurt Transformers but in the final hour long battle scene in the dessert

1. The Story Line – OK the story line was not terrible but the way it was delivered I felt could have been much better which totally affected the whole movie.  They could have stolen the idea from Lord of the Rings where in the first 10 minutes it went over the history of things.  The whole time there was something new added to the story without much clarification.

Overall I would recommend seeing the movie while in the theaters.  If I see it again I will probably see it at the Imax.
