Default The official Transformers:Revenge Of The Fallen movie critics review thread

They are slowly coming out of the wood works now people.

http://www.totalfilm.com/reviews/cin...-of-the-fallen

4 stars Verdict:"Non-obsessives may find the relentless sensory assault a little draining, but the bangs, ’bots and bombast ensure Fallen has everything Transformers nuts will want and expect."




http://www.theshiznit.co.uk/review/t...the-fallen.php

4/5 stars "Yes, you could level the same accusations at Transformers as I and many others lobbed at Terminator Salvation. It's over-long; it has plot holes you could steer an aircraft carrier through; it's loud and stupid and relies too much on pyrotechnics. But the difference is, the Terminator franchise was never designed to be consumed and enjoyed as blockbuster entertainment. Transformers, on the other hand, was built from the ground up to be a popcorn-devouring, eye-popping, nostalgia-sparking crowd-pleaser – and Revenge Of The Fallen sees Michael Bay tick all those boxes and more.

The contest is over – not only does Bay have the bigger d***, he's made the better film as well."




http://movies.ign.com/articles/994/994427p1.html

3/5 stars "The biggest movie of the summer is finally here, but that's the problem with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - it's just too bloody big. Epic, spectacular but unfortunately far, far too long; the film proves that when it comes to Michael Bay blockbuster movies, you can have too much of a good thing."

Yea I just read the Ign Uk review. Basicly he complains that the movie is too long huh?? I mean he praises the first film but says the second one is too long but the first movie was 2 hours as well. I mean it dosent bother me that the movie is 2 hours. I find that to be kinda of a stupid complaint but I will hole off until I see the movie for myself before I make my final decsion. But since I loved the first movie I am sure I will like revenge of the fallen. P.S I already read the novel and by judging from that It seems awesome!!!

So the complaints, in a nutshell, are that the movie is too awesome.

I...can't...wait.

This line of the review made me happy :

So, it's stupid, but fun. Brainless entertainment. I was hoping for a slightly better script, but alas.

I feel that the first Transformers made "brainless" fun work. The entertainment value was through the roof, so all you kept hearing from everyone including self when we were leaving the theater was "Transformers is AWESOME!" So I'm fine with Transformers 2 being the same way.

The Daily Mirror in the UK gave this 3/5 stars and a favourable review as well.

For comparison, it gave Terminator Salvation and Wolverine 4/5 stars. So I can see TF2 getting generally better reviews than those two as the Mirror often gets it backwards.

Also, 4/5 stars from Total Film has me convinced .

Here's a very negative review

http://www.scifinow.co.uk/reviews/th...of-the-fallen/

2/5 stars

"This movie will do very well indeed. Sequel to 2007’s smash hit, Transformers, Michael Bay’s Revenge Of The Fallen is as big and burly as fans of loud, frenetic blockbusters will want it to be. It shouts, it screams, it explodes, it screams some more and then it explodes again; it is more than simple cinematic fodder for the preteen Saturday mobs, it is the next stage in the evolution of cinematic fodder, stripped down and streamlined to feature only marketable, trailer-friendly, toy shelf-conscious moments. Junk, then.

Unlike the summer’s other big robot movie, Revenge Of The Fallen does have a personality, but it’s a frightfully detestable one. It celebrates all the wrong things with ferocious gusto, marking a new type of low for blockbusters."

I'd prefer an overlong movie to an overshot one anyday (looking at you Fox!).

I'd expect a few more reviews like this to be honest, nice to know we already have a few positive ones in the bag though. Not sure if this will get worse or better reviews overall than the first one.

These reviews aren't negative from my perspective, because all of the things these dudes are complaining about are the very reasons why I'm so excited about this movie. I don't want Transformers to change my perception of the Geneva Conventions. I just want this movie to be a gigantic cinematic ride.

And that's exactly what these reviews are claiming it to be.

^Totally agreed, but for some stupid reason, some critics look upon it negatively, when all we are doing is expecting a thrill-ride, and it seems thats what we'll get.

I knew it

I knew at some point in their attempts to outline all that is wrong with the new one they would look back on the previous one with praise
(praise that was no where to be found in their original assessments no doubt)
