Yesterday I saw Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. I don’t know what the critics have been complaining about or hoping for…
Over on Rotten Tomatoes, Revenge has a 21% fresh rating. Again, I can’t help but wonder why.
Nothing was diminished. The quality of the cinematography, acting, effects, etc., were identical to that of the first film. The only difference between the two movies was in the plot and its execution. It was familiar enough to be a sequel, yet original enough to be its own vehicle. And it was every bit as good as its predecessor.
To those who don’t like this version of Transformers…Some of whom seem to be critics who found absolutely nothing wrong with the first film…Let me school you…

*puts chalk down*
Transformers is an action film. Not a character-driven drama.
And in Revenge, Mr. Bay delivered exactly what I expected–a kick-ass, blow-em-up, CGI-infested visual feast. It ain’t Shakespeare.
And I wouldn’t want it any other way.
My only beef was with the supporting characters. The Twins got on my nerves. But only a little…As for Arcee…She and her sisters(?) were on-screen for merely seconds before they were eliminated.
Overall, it was a fantastic film.
Definitely worth watching… 🙂
