Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen 
Revenge of The Explosions
2/4 stars

"Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" was a sequel i was waiting for since the really enjoyable and visual stunning original. Michael Bay seemed to be going in right direction and finding a fitting project suited to his talents. Sadly, that is not this case as his sequel is dumb, pretentious, and way overblown. It so overblown that it becomes irratating and mind boggling. Bay is a master of explosions but it seems he forgot about a story and creativity. "Transformers 2" is one big set of explosions and thats it.Things explode that make no logical sense of how they would actually do so."Transformers 2" even manages to be racist with two twin robots who could be one of the most annoying characters in movies this decade. Anytime this movie does something worth praising it ruins it in the blink of an eye. There are plot holes galore and things that dont make sense.

It doesnt help that every ounce or charm from the first one is gone here. Instead we get something thats melodramatic, contrived, and uninspired. The story plays likes something on level of the stories of the those cheesy, souless shows on the CW. This is really all they could conjure up for a story? The screenplay is worse this time around with dialouge that sucks. Shia Leblouf is a talented guy and he even cant escape all the flaws of this movies. Megan Fox is one of the most attractive girls...a real 10, but she cant act her way out of a paper bag. She parades around do nothing but looking good and overreacting in emotional scenes. the rest of the cast is forgetable (except Sam's parents) and their characters are forgetable. I love the character and the voice of optimus prime but he gets a royal screw job here.

Luckly, this isnt a complete disaster. "Transformers 2" still remains visual stunning even though all the robots look alike and some of the fight scenes are poorly edited. Thankfully, there is some great sound and a cool sountrack featuring Green Day and Linkin Park. This movie also has some entertaining action scenes but they are few and far between ,thanks to a movie that is 45 minutes too long. "Transformers 2" is pretty entertaining action film and is pretty to look at but its so loud, dumb and overblown. You can do so much with this bare bones premise so this why im not giving a slightly lower rating.First movie to ever give me a actual headache.Finally, a reminder to Mr Bay...sometimes less is better.
