There has been a lot of different opinions about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. I think most of the strong opinions is a mixture the high profile of the movie and people just wanting to stir up emotions. I don’t have a problem with it either. As I mentioned in a previous post about Transformers reviews I really don’t care about the plethora of reviews.
When I first saw the Transformers movie I was not all that excited to see it. I was not a Transformer fan and never read the comics, watched the TV shows, or even collected the die cast cars. I just wasn’t into it. So, when the first movie came out I was not that excited to see it. I didn’t get caught up in the hype. After I saw it, however, I was completely blown away. Not by the Transformers themselves (although Bumble Bee is freakin awesome!), but by the movie itself.
Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen – The Most Anticipated Movie Ever
At least for me anyway. I can’t remember waiting so excitedly, and anxiously, about a movie. I don’t remember anticipating any of the Star Wars sequels, Friday the 13th movies, or even Terminator movies as much as I did this new Transformers movie.
Because of the way that people would write about it, seek information about it, watch the trailers for it, and contemplate on it, I knew that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was incredibly anticipated. Which is one of the reasons so many different opinions about the movie came out.
What I Liked About It
Getting into my review I will this; no matter what anyone else says, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is BY FAR my favorite movie ever made. Saying that, I will say that there were some things that could have been left out and it wouldn’t have taken away from the overall movie.
But, this is about the things I did like.
The overall movie, when taken as a whole, was simply amazing. I could go on an on with superlatives and adjectives galore. But, the bottom line is that it was amazing. I do think that no matter what people say, you can not get away from the sheer magnitude of the scope of the movie. I remember sitting in the movie theater the first time I saw it and the time flew by. I literally couldn’t believe this movie was over 2 hours in length. It flew by!
I loved the reality of the movie. What I mean by that is nothing looked fake. The robots were lifelike, and the action scenes were so well done you thought it was actual footage. When my wife says that she liked an action movie with robots that transform from cars, that is saying something. The biggest reasons was because it was so real.
The humor was funny. A lot of action movies have a lot of corny lines that try too hard to be funny too. As great as Terminator was, it had some awkward scenes that tried to be funny. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has a lot of genuinely funny scenes. And contrary to opinions, it doesn’t take away from the movie. For example, there is a part in the movie where the kitchen appliances are transformed and attack Sam and his family.

Throughout the movie there are these little clips, little anecdotes, smart alec replies, and situations that are just hilarious. Again, even my wife had fits of laughter.
I loved the action! The only reason to watch a movie like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is for the action. The robots, fight scenes, explosions, car chases, and all the other chaotic situations make the Transformers movie what they are. Amazing experiences of action sequences. The action in this one far surpasses the first. It was non stop. You don’t have a chance to breathe or even get up to use the bathroom.
And, for the last bit that I loved about the movie is that I thought the acting was rather great for an action movie. Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, and newcomer Ramon Rodriguez were simply great in their roles. Each had a different type of part to play in the film, and I feel they acted the roles out perfectly.
What I Did Not Like
While this movie is my all time favorite, there was some things that I wish made the cutting room floor. When I went to watch the movie for the first time at the movie theater I took my nine year old son with me. Halfway through I had wished I hadn’t.
The sexuality in this movie was much higher than the first. It felt like they were trying to make Megan Fox the reason to see it. The increased use of foul language was not something that I was happy for. Not that there were any F-Bombs, but there was just some things I don’t want my nine year old to hear.
Other than that, I am very happy with the movie.
To me, a lot of the complaints of the movie were just a little stupid. One complaint that I heard from a lot of people was that they wanted to see more Autobots. Well, in a movie that is labeled as the Revenge of the Fallen, it would seem there would be a lot more Decepticons than Autobots. But, at least that is what I thought.
Another weird complaint was that the fight scenes were too chaotic and over the top. What?!!! It’s a Michael Bay film. It’s going to be over the top. That’s the reason so many people rejoiced that he signed on for it. Dude, I would have been severely disappointed if there wasn’t as much action associated with this movie.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Is On DVD
If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to get this DVD. It’s funny that my teen daughter and I actually argued about who was going to buy it first; me or her. I won.
For me, this movie is an epic experience. It is the standard that I now judge other movies by. I can’t help it. Now, when I see a movie that I have been waiting for, I compare it to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
I highly recommend this movie for anyone. Although you might want to use some parental guidance when you have young children.
