Everyone is waiting for the release of this sequel. When I watched it, the lines are long and the cinema is full. Who said people are scared of the H1N1 virus. There are two kinds of reactions people have with the movie. Some are delighted with it while there are some (me included) that are disappointed with what Michael Bay has done with the franchise. Here are some of the reasons why Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen failed.
First of all, I think most of Sam’s (Shia LeBeouf) college scenes were irrelevant and could have been compressed to cut the viewing time. Although it was funny how Sam’s mom made a fool of herself, it didn’t contribute to the plot.
Another thing that got to my nerves is that Transformers 2 featured generic Decepticons. Aside from Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Fallen, Devastator, and the Insecticons, the other Decepticons looked alike and you can’t tell one apart from the other. There was even a girl robot that reminded me of Kristanna Loken’s T-X of Terminator 3.
The epic battle in the end didn’t feel like it is a Transformers movie. I thought someone switched the channel to G.I. Joe. I was just waiting for Major Lennox (Josh Duhanel) or Sergeant Epps (Tyrese Gibson) to shout “Yo Joe!”
Sam Witwicky (Shia LeBeouf): You gotta be kidding me…
But not everything about Revenge of the Fallen is bad. The CGI is good and believable. It is a very good action movie. Another plus for the movie is Megan Fox. Michael Bay must have been mesmerized with her “beauty”. There were slo-mo sequences to showcase her assets. She can forget about being an actress and stick to modeling.
I still haven’t forgiven the producers for making Bumblebee into a Camaro and this sequel didn’t do anything to satiate the hatred. Like what I said above, Revenge of the Fallen is an entertaining action movie but it is a weak Transformers flick. I guess nothing can beat the classic animated movie.
