I don't understand how anyone who grew up on the Original Cartoon couldn't love this movie?

Soundwave and Ravage? Present and awesome.

Megatron vs Starscream? Much more apparent than the ONE line they gave them in the original "You fail me again Starscream"

Optimus Prime kicking everyone's ass in the woods? I had that 80s "You've got the touch" song going in my head.

Matrix of Leadership put back into the story? Yup

Constructicons? Yes

The effects were awesome. The jokes so corny you have to laugh.

My ONLY complaint is how the decepticons "un"transformed tend to all look alike. At times at the huge battle at the end I wasn't sure at first glance if it was Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave or the Fallen.

But, I have the same problem with Asians anyways, so it might just be me.

No one else was bothered by the MASSIVE Deus Ex Machina? Cmon. The rail gun was so ****ing stupid, it really ruined the movie.

Really? A movie about alien robots from outerspace who transform, and it's a friggin' rail gun that does it for you?

First of all, you should read up on Deus Ex Machina, "God from the machine", and what it truly means. It's when something IMPOSSIBLE happens completely outside the plot line to provide a sudden twist.

Advanced military technology that's top secret is far from applicable. Especially considering it changed the plot line... zero.

So, yeah, sorry. In a movie that's about biological robots that transform into human technology to hide, and the part you find unbelievable is an advanced human laser beam.

Wow.

SPOILERS- DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET.












My few problems with the movie:

1. I agree with the one poster who complained about the language. They really didn't need to cuss as much as they did which brings me to #2.

2. A majority of that was contributed by the twins who were absolutely worthless in this film. I mean, I thought they had a role somewhere and was almost giddy when they lined up against Devastator thinking of the impending doom they faced. Unfortunately, nothing came about from it. Hell, one of them got eaten, only to punch his way out of the monsters throat. Stupid.

3. Speaking of Devastor, they absolutely WASTED him in this film. We all saw the trailers, heard he was in the movie and they didn't do anything with him. He is supposed to be an ass kicker. I mean, they threw Jazz to the wolves in the T1 by getting ripped in half by Megatron to put him over. Hell, Jazz was one of the only G1 Autobots to survive "the movie" in 86' and they found a way to kill him 2 minutes into the final battle in T1. Why couldn't they have Devastor at least destroy somebody? The twins and ARCEE would have sufficed for me. Seems a little silly for me.



I'm still loving the Forest Scene. Optimus KICKED ass. One of the best fight scenes by one of the best fictional heroes.

For your viewing pleasure....

All original G1 autobots died in the original "Transformers: the movie" except I think Jazz, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, Perceptor, Blaster and the Dinobots. All of the other one's perished.

I actually liked what they did w/ Devastator. he had a specific role. every other robot was a fighter, but he had a job to do. I have no issue w/ how he was used.

Watching it again Tuesday.

And for sure you forgot Hotrod at the very least. He's the one who takes the matrix of leadership and destroys Unicron.

Though you're right. He's not gen 1

I just came back from it (Transformers 2) and can say that I enjoyed the film (and I'm someone who can be easily critical seeing as how my career involves story writing/creating etc).

But I enjoyed it for what it is. A typical Michael Bay CGI spectacle with a plot that's as generic as it is predictable.

Not going to reveal too much, but the Rail Gun could have ended the movie right then and there had it been fired more than one damn time.

Lots of silly ****, the typical "I love you" come back to life ****.

All the critics who b**** about how stupid it is don't get what it's about. It's just a funny/wild CGI demo reel to enjoyably pass time with.

Anyway, It's a movie I'd definitely pay to go see in a theater once and then not see again for a long time... in fact I haven't seen the 1st Transformers since I saw it in the theater.

This isn't a movie I'd find that enjoyable sitting at home or w/e.

i loved the first punisher. I thought thomas jane did a great job and the movie had a good storyline and fight scenes. The 2nd one licked monkey nuts!

The movie was a mess. Very hard to follow. Believe Matt and Trey sang a song that referenced how Michael Bay misses the point. Transformers and Transformers II do nothing to change that sediment.

Watch it on mute.

Michael Bay always misses the point. The man is a ****ing idiot when it comes to plot and character development. But that's not the type of films he makes.

Look at Family Guy... Matt and Trey were spot on when they said that the show is ****ing stupid and a manatee could write their jokes. (most of the animated comedy community thinks Seth MacFarlane is a ****ing retard). But his stuff... as stupid and easy to create as it may be, still makes people laugh due to it's utter randomness (which is the point of the show)

Bay makes spectacles... and there is a reason he's made HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars with his films. People just like to see **** blow up and giant battles.

People get pissed off when they see hacks put together entertainment that they not only find devoid of actual talent to create, but something that they think anyone could do... but they really get pissed off when it's a HUGE SUCCESS.

That's why the critics lampoon Bay... but it's not going to stop him from having more success in the future.
