It was only one review I've read, but boy, it was a really bad one. And it was from a site that really liked the first film.

150 mins is far too long in my opinion. The first one dragged in sections and that was about 2 hours 15.
We had no idea it was going to be that long. I mean, it wasn't torture by any means, but I kept looking at my watch with this shocked expression on my face as it kept going and going and going.

To be honest, I went in there only expecting to point and laugh at it for hokey dialogue and bad characterization, so I was pleasantly surprised.

Re: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Grading & Discussion

Dropping Megatron to the bottom of the ocean is a fine plan as long as the All Spark was destroyed, but it wasn't. The Autobot made a silly mistake of letting the humans keep a shard. They should have taken it and used it to revive Jazz and it would be gone. Letting a shard remain where someone could take it was a stupid risk given Earth seems to be infested with Transformers, particularly Decepticons. The shard really should have had a constant Autobot guard and not left for the humans to defend. Plus when they do steal it back we could see an Autobot get killed. That was one of my issues with the movie, Decepticons died left right and centre but only Jetfire dies and he ripped himself apart to save prime. That twin Devastator ate should have died...no wonder the Decepticons can't win if they have a death:kill ratio of 20:2.

Re: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Grading & Discussion

BTW was anybody else confused a bit by Glenn Morshower's character (The NEST commander)? He played a similar character at the beginning of Transformers who I thought was killed by Blackout. According to IMDB they are two seperate characters....


I suppose it's kind of like the Legend Of Zorro (Interestingly another Orci/Kurtzman) where they brought back practically every supporting actor from the first (with a few exceptions)...but in completely different roles.

She was two or three motorcycles and I only remember seeing one of them get hit when they found the kids.

I believe two went down, although I can't be sure. One definitely survived though - whatever that means for Arcee as a whole - modular Transformers are a new thing - at least in this form.

Re: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Grading & Discussion

Arcee is supposed to have a hive-mind between her, Chromia (blue bike) and Elita One/Moonracer (purple bike, no one seems sure which name is right). IIRC, it's the purple bike that takes the hit.

Colonel Sharp did die in Transformers. The NEST commander is General Morshower. (seriously, that's his name, they named him after the actor)

This is rife with spoilers and is absolutely brutal, but it did make me laugh:

For a loud, mindless movie about robots beating the crap out of each other, they sure dropped the ball on Devastator actually, you know, beating the crap out of other robots!

Spoony's review -that I linked to up thread- utter RAPES this movie. (Which I plan on seeing tomorrow afternoon.)

Well, according to imdb Michael Bay was born in 1965 so... the poster should be 44

Sigh. Sadly, probably about 26.
