I swear Death Racers is better then this
This is meant for a review this section. But I'm just using this section to let evrybody know that I am inventing a machine that will reanimate Bram Stroker, but a demonic version. His soul purpose will be to hunt down everybody that had anything to do with making this movie and brutally exterminate them.
This movie is utter garbage, it makes me sick. It has disgraced the vampire genre all together and spawned all these crap TV shows to do with emo vampires! Once my reanimated Bram Stroker realises all this he will have his motivation to hunt them all down.
Well lets get started. A lot of you are saying that the story to Transformers is boring, well mostly are saying it's non existent. The special effects are mind blowing, but overwhelm everything. There is no character development, and roles seem rushed. The plot is filled with so many holes that if you stumpled in your soul would be lost forever.
Well a lot of it is true. But I still give this seven out of ten, why? I did start off with a four out of ten, but I changed it. I used my imagination to make up for all the stupid things that didn't make sense but could of. Then I decided that what I thought up and how it should of been made deserved a seven.
Lets start with the plot, it is pretty simple to follow. The Fallen wants to use a weapon thats been on Earth for god knows how long to destroy the Sun. But he needs the Matrix to start it. So it's up to the Autobots and Sam to stop him and the rest of the Decipticons. In the end they do. It is really simple, but next to impossible to understand in this movie.
For one Michael Bay, or the writers, have added in that it could be used to revive Optimus as well. But they never explained why they had to do all that, when Sam could of used the piece of the Spark he had to revive him. Just like Megatron was revived by the other piece. And on top of that why couldn't they use the piece that was used for Megatron to revive Jazz. Isn't that something Prime would want. Speaking of characters from the first film, where the hell is Barricade? He survived the first film didn't he?
Number two, the Fallen broadcast a message throughout the entire world ordering the human race to find Sam Whitwicky, but after that throughout the movie no one seem fussed. At all. And the way characters just disappear out of the movie, like that RC Truck guy. He just left out of the movie completely, and Jetfire was out for a large portion, no one knows why and he just shows in the end to save the day for Optimus. And the characters that got focus in the movie for one or two lines? Why? Schoolboy from Rambo(he's a good actor) but for one or two lines with attention focused on him. The story should stick who is meant to be the main characters and not cameos.
Speaking of main characters now, aren't the true characters of this film the Autobots and Decipticons? They are the ones who should be getting the focus. Seriously could you imagine if Gollum from Lord of the Rings got as much focus as Ironhide in the movie, it would destroy it. I mean Ironhide and Ratchet are two of the main Autobots but get no real part at all. More attention is focused on the U.S. military then them, and their weapons are next to useless against the Decepticons.
As for the humour, it's funny to a point. But it crossed that point by thirty million light years. Thats all I'm gonna say about that. There is plenty more to bitch about, like for istance the special effects overwhelm the story. Michael Bay you should really watch Lord of the Rings, the special effects strengthen the story by not being the centre of attention to much and more in the background for most parts. And there is nearly no emotion in any Transformer except Bumblebee, Optimus and Starscream. The rest are bleak as can be.
Enough bitching, lets move on to some positives. First the score for the film, is brilliant. I can listen to the score and feel shivers in my spine, which is a really really good thing. And on top of that it some how fits in to the mish mash of a script and makes scenes feel more epic. Steve Jablounsky, you have talent.
Bumblebee, you are awesome. You kept me interested the entire time, and you really did kick ass in this movie. Ripping that stupid tiger thing in half made my day when I seen the movie. Optimus, the forest battle. EPIC is the only word to describe it.
And the basic story for the movie was good and could of worked a lot better, I really hope directors, producers do read through everyones comments and think about them. Because Michael Bay has the green light for a third movie, and if he doesn't read all these comments he will make another Revenge of the Fallen. Michael Bay take my advice, follow James Cameron, Peter Jackson etc. and put the story before everything and let the special effects strengthen it. The fans will love, the non fans will come to love it and you will love it 100 times more for yourself.
Cheers Brendan out.
