Transformers 2 Was A Let Down

Warning: Spoiler alert.

I’m sure many will disagree, so be it. I’m free to write anything as I please.

The highly anticipated movie is finally here, Transformers 2, The Return of the Fallen. Like other young adults, I’ve waited this moment for 2 years. 2 months before the launch date, I’d watch the trailer once every other day. And when the time comes, Optimus Prime failed me.

Transformers 2

This time around, all eyes are on Megan Fox. Strangely enough, I don’t find her alluring like most boys and her acting doesn’t put me at the edge of my seat. She’s there to attract audience using her hotness. And I don’t appreciate that. It’s about robots, not a girl.

Too much fight scene. Not all scenes are bad, but somehow the fight goes on and on, metal scraping, scratching, pulling but you can’t really see a thing unless you put it on slow-mo.

American Superiority. Everything, I mean everything is to show how great American military are. One minute the bots were fighting, the next, Epps brought on the rain (bombarding the ground). Again, I’m here to see bots!

Too many characters, you start asking, “Eh? What happened to that guy?”.

Lack of Emotion. There’s a romantic scene but coupled with Simmons (the S7 guy), everything falls to the ground. So what’s the point again? Plus Shia laBeouf and Megan Fox can’t really express emotions that well. I’d prefer Justin Long and Missy Peregrym.

Compared to the first one, Transformers 2 was a major let down. Especially on the story line. Too jumbled up and excessive of everything, including the scripts. It’s a simple movie with complicated scenes.

Still, to me, Michael Bay is awesome but can’t beat his Armageddon

ps: Can’t wait for Inglourious Basterds

  1. I somewhat have to agree with ya eddie.the story line wasn’t very clear and the only time we got to see Optimus prime was at the beginning and towards the end of the movie.That was a bummer.

    And I don’t know why, but Megan Fox was a No-Biggie at all! I think she acted way better in the 1st movie.

    Even so, I think it was still worth the money to watch it at the cinema ( and aku angkut anak aku skali gi tgk ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† midnight show lak tu ๐Ÿ˜› )

  2. Eh cik kiah! Nice of you to drop by. Geng gayut dulu2 ni. Hehehe.

    Megan Fox.. sexy… which part pon.. I have no idea. I still prefer Elisha Cuthbert.

  3. aku nyer fav 2 tu je la. starscream ngan satu lagi bot kecik yg dalam tx 1 dia dowdload army’s data. siap ada expression muka tension bila dload failed. haha

  4. oh, am definitely not a fan of transformers.
    zaman kanak-kanak dulu i’d rather watch Captain Planet.
    [hahah..sama era ke tu pun?!!] :p

    anyway, i know this is off topic, but i hear u r getting married?
    dah tempah cupcakes utk wedding?
    heheheheheheh. ๐Ÿ˜€
    pis!

  5. hohoho…really?! that’s great news. plis kawen bulan 9/10 tahun ni, time aku balik(bole tak demand gituh ๐Ÿ˜› )..i’m desperately craving to make wedding cupcakes for someone ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    bilekah?

  6. haha..itula, she SLEPT throughout the whole movie! boleh tak?? bunyik bising gile haram tak bgn. Next time leh gi tgk late night show lagi la ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  7. Oh, I still love Armageddon.. nothing beats that easily ๐Ÿ˜› Maybe

    Really eh dude? I haven’t watch this movie, but Cibol told me is good ehehe. Different expectation, I guess. Let me watch it and see if I have anything to say later. Yes, I want to see more robot fights!!

    ps: I can’t wait for Inglorious Bastards as well. Love anything German-related especially movies on WWII, Third Reich etc.!

    pss: Optimus Prime should NEVER have lips.

  8. Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say
    that I have really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway
    I’ll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you post again soon!

  9. i yet watch it..so nothing much to say. but most people said it was an awesome movie and a worth to watch movie for 2hours 30 minutes. well, maybe they just evaluate only on some parts, not as overall as you did.

    Whatever it is, I’m going to watch it..hehe

    p/s: Megan Fox? Even if she’s not in the movie, this movie still can success..hoho ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  10. Sequel selalu camtu, bro….

    If Bay decided to go for Armageddon 2, I’m pretty sure banyak orang komplen…sebab usually the first movie always push viewer’s expectation higher on the sequel…

    Same goes to Angels & Demons. Membazir plak aku rasa. Ade plak the fifth and ultimate Illuminati brand bentuk camtu…tak genius langsung!

  11. That was already considered. It’s like reading a novel. If too many repetitive words, it becomes annoying. Even Bond introduce himself once in every sequel. Pulp fiction wasn’t written by Tarantino.. was it?

    QT = blood bath.

  12. Eh, Armageddon mmg tak leh kuat sequel. It’s a one time movie.

    Lucky not all sequel are bad. Bond getting better. Batman pon best. Spiderman did well.

    Angels & Demons agak bodoh. Illuminati brand buruk nak mampus. Plus storyline die too compressed. And macam bole predict sape perpetrator die. Bosanยฒ. Iskยฒ.

  13. High pace of technology in real life nowadays affected Bond’s success from time to time, that’s the main reason I can point out when you say Bond gets better and better. Spiderman was ok to me, not really a fan.

    Batman? At first, Bale was excellent. But in Dark Knight, Ledger was the man. That was the second time I felt like being the villain is much better than being the hero. The first was Orochimaru in Naruto hehehe….

  14. Dark Knight, mmg main attraction die Joker. People want to see how whacky and wicked joker is, not the heroic Batman.

    First villain for me, Shishio Makoto in Samurai X. Orochimaru was wicked too, but easily killed by Sasuke.

  15. it wasn’t THAT bad!
    i personally think the twins & decepticons chihuahua are cute and tho im a girl i still find megan fox hot!
    the fighting scene yang sedikit mengecewakan sebab macam kelam kabut and they zoomed in a lot so audience cant really see what’s going on..

  16. baru pas tengok citer ni tadi kt wayang ..

    yang x boleh blah sekali .. time robot kecik cam lalat tuh kena kutip dari lubang .. makcik belakang aku jerit

    “ala …. abis laa !!! ”
    ๐Ÿ™„

  17. To make things worse, Megan Fox snubbed a jaded boy and his rose (and the media has since affectionately named him Rose Boy – google that, haha) on the red carpet. Just joking.

    The good thing is that I’m not one of those people desperately calling every single cinema in mind because most of them are fully booked by the weekend. I’ll just wait for the reviews to come in, and then decide later should I watch it proper or just settle for a bootleg copy, ๐Ÿ˜› the Malaysian way…

  18. owh my..i’ve been anticipating this movie for sooo long…and now out came the reviews on how its too fast-paced..how it shows the american superiority..the scenes and stuff..

    *sigh…i hope i wont get too disappointed and also..

  19. Seriously, download it!

    But it’s worth the watch. You know the THX thingy, but unlike StarTrek (a very good movie), you get only the exact value of your ticket.

  20. Honestly, I hated the idea of a Transformers sequel.

    I believe that all great movies don’t need to have a sequel, because it kinda ruins the perception of the fans to the original. That is why, from the moment this sequel was announced, I was already unsure that it would level with the “awesomeness” (if there’s such a word, lol) of the first one.

    Thanks for the heads-up, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. ohooooo..tenkyuu beb ๐Ÿ™‚ btw, berapa haribulan tu?

    *ps* maaf for making the wrong assumption.takpe, men kan life begins at 40 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. for me, everything in the movie is nice and groundbreaking, tapi ader certain part yang aku raser x patut buat, x patut ada, story line dier kena ketat sikit..

    tapi overall aku bagi 7/10..
    Heheheh ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  23. yes..
    finally i found sumbody who is totally agree with me..
    i havent seen the movie yet bt i found it is very insulting bcoz guys want to watch transformer because of her. there is even an article comparing her with angelina jolie.which i found its insulting too! bcause shes so fake n blah! however, 4 the movie, will comment it after watching it tonite..hehe.salam~
