Transformers 2 Review
I finally got to see Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen this past week-end and I was impressed by all the action sequences, the robot fighting, and the interesting way an Autobot's death can make a human movie-goer cry. Yes, I shed a tear when I watched it...but no spoilers here so I won't tell you what part that was! (Even though I would guess that as much as the movie has already grossed at the box office, you probably already saw the movie anyway!).
And for those who haven't seen the movie yet, I will tell you one thing that's sure. This movie was not about Sam Witwicky (Shia Lebeouf) nor was it about Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox). Although you can tell from the obvious scenes that Megan Fox was needed in the movie to satisfy the virile instincts (like ahem! see the movie still below):
Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen was really more about the battle that ensues when the Decepticons return to Earth on a mission to capture Sam Witwicky. Why Sam? You have to see the movie to find out. Or if you saw the first movie, you would already know why he's such a vital character to the robots.
I gave the movie both thumbs up because I think this movie was worth any ticket amount to go see. And if you're lucky enough to be able to watch it in an IMAX theater, go for it. The action will take you out of your seats!
