Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen – Falls Flat

I am a huge fan of Transformers. I loved the first movie and I really, really, REALLY wanted Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to be as awesome as the original. Unfortunately, it just didn’t deliver. The first movie was a little heavy on the adolescent, potty-humor but this one just took it to such an extreme that it became ridiculous and got old very fast. There also seemed to be a great deal more swearing in this one and not much of a plot.

Now, I don’t want to make it sound as though I didn’t like anything about it. The special effects were incredible and the first about 20 minutes of the movie was awesomely action packed. I liked how they expanded the mythos behind the Transformers and explained more about the interactions they had had with Earth before and the way that sheds some light on the whole Beast Wars Transformer line. Also, I thought it was nice how they showed that Transformers have the free will to choose which side they are on. Unfortunately, all this wasn’t enough to save the movie. I hope that they do better with the next one.


  1. I thought the first one was better too. Especially because I think all the fighting and intense action gets really old really fast :)


  2. Falls Flat, Ryan I don't think it fell flat. Yes Brianne the action was probably too much for you but lets remember this is about Transformers not Humans. I loved the movie and the more I think about it I will see it again. Great flick, different than the first but had great aspects.
