Movie review: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Movie review: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

It is common knowledge that Michael Bay lets his kids come up with the scripts for his movies and I am totally okay with that. You’ve got people like Polanski and Trier for the artsy fartsy stuff, George Lucas for Star Wars, Wes Anderson for black comedies, etc. And Bay only lives to give us motion pictures about giant toys bashing each others circuits to a pulp. What more does my inner child need?

You can say a lot about Bay but the man does know how to create a spectacle. Were the first part was hindered by budget restrictions, Revenge of the Fallen pulls out all registers. It’s one big slugfest, no holds barred. The first time I saw Optimus again gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. I was like whispering, ‘Yeah… Go Optimus, go fuck that shit up!.’ And as if heard he went forth to deal out major destruction. The script might raise some questions but to be frank, who the fuck cares? Hello, this movie is called Transfomers, not ‘The Importance of Being Earnest.’ Oh, and the eye candy looks excellent!

Things like this creates classic film!

The eye candy which is Megan Fox obviously. She’s hotter as hell, a fact Bay thankfully exploits in her first scene. The Transformers are kinda there too but they just don’t have that je ne sais quoi. You know, boobs! Yeah, without Fox this film wouldn’t be worth watching now I think about it. Hmm…

Anyhow, in all the scenes that are not so important, as in they don’t feature boobs… uh, Megan Fox, other stuff presumably happens too. The Autobots are now working for the government to help protect humanity against the evil Decepticons. Witwicky (LaBeouf) tries to get through college and Mikaela makes a living fucki… fixing motorcycles. And naturally everything goes to shit when some old powerhouse Decepticon, named the Fallen, starts to meddle with the on goings. Commence the all balls out brawl of the century (literally). There are also some hilariously funny, blunt and vulgar jokes present just to remember us that no matter how grown up we are, pee and dick jokes still work. Yes, we are a sad bunch…

This time the amount of Transformers is quadrupled according to the ironclad rule of the cinema, more asskicking robots equals a more awesome movie! To bad they didn’t put more boobs in it, though. Oh, and pretty much everything monumental or old gets fucked up. Awesome movie!
