I Hate It – Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Review


Can you tell what’s happening here? I can’t, nor can I tell what happened during the 7 hours that is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Horrible. When I walk out of a theater thinking that John Turturro wasn’t so bad, that’s when you know it’s a total turd. I also don’t get its sense of humor. A little eight-year old girl summed up the laughs best:

SPOILER: Some guy gets teleported into a desert, surrounded by mountains and rock. He says something like, “Where am I? Vegas?” and a third of the audience laughs, and the little girl behind me says innocently, “Why does he think he’s in Vegas?”

Of course he doesn’t think that; it’s a stupid line of dialog sandwiched between other stupid dialog, continuity errors galore and a plot that just doesn’t make any damn sense. I take back every script note I’ve given to anyone; you don’t need to fix logic problems. Just throw $200M at the problem and you’ll be fine.

    …you seem surprised.

    I really wish you all didn’t deny yourselves the treat of seeing full imax shots – they were truly a sight to behold.

    …oh yeah – and what about the lovable Mudflap & Skids?!

    The kid thought they were in Vegas because it’s in the middle of the desert.  Out of all the things to point out as stupid in the movie, and there’s tons, that’s what you pick?

    I didn’t write that because it bothered me the most.  I picked that quote because it represented almost the entirety of the jokes told in the movie, and was making a point that it’s sense of humor is lacking in the “sense.”

    By their (and your) logic, if I found myself in the middle of a pool, to get a laugh, I would ask, “where am I? Japan?” because it’s surrounded by water.  I just don’t get it.

    But yes, there are hundreds of thousands of other things stupid, if not “stupider” than that.

    im not a fan in the 1st place but i saw the 1st one, used to watch the cartoon and no one else would go with my partner.  the theatre was full of kids.  these kids were subjected to soft core porn.  maybe its coz im not 13 and not a boy but Megan Fox was unnecesary.  i would NOT dress like that around my dad who just got out of jail.  ew.  also if she wasnt in the movie, the plot would have remained the same except for the “i love u” crap.

    i couldnt see the actual transformations, it was too dark in places and the only good bits were the big deceptikonz at the start in Shanghai and the british one (Michael York?).

    im so glad im not the only one who thought it was crap, even if its for different reasons.

    u know what viki, who cares what u think!!! Megan fox is hot as hell and maybe the reason ur having ur period is because ur boyfriend is jacking off to her and not to u!!!

  7. Cybergosh says:

    yes, BUT—what about mudflap and skids!?

  8. Kate says:

    if the first transfromers was so crap ( which it’s not ), why did you go and watch the second one. I think that the transfromers films, both 1 and 2, were excellent. Just becasue you don’t have a sense of humour whatsoever. If you hate it so much go watch some boring old film that matches your personality.

    TF 2 was assome.  But Soundwave did not fight in the end.  That sucks!
