Lower your expectations and enjoy the roller-coaster!!!!
My first review ever, because of the negative reviews for ROTF!
To start-off I grew up with the Transformers G1 animation series! And I loved it! I nitpick on every little detail I notice in a movie/story So (in 2007) for the first Transformers I had huge expectations!
I thought it would have a story at par with the G1 series.(not a great plot but a simple story). I thought I'd be able to recognize all of the transformers and have a blast with the movie. But the lack of any kind of story (allspark? are you kidding' me) and confusing transformers (except Optimus/Bumblebee), I was disappointed by the first part.
So for Revenge of the Fallen I lowered my expectations and focused on the primary transformers (e.g. Optimus/Bumblebee/Megatron). I went in the theater and this time I DID have a blast! :)
Action was great (they actually Slow-mode parts, I think, to show which Transformer we were looking at) ;-P Story was better than the first part.(Like I said my expectations weren't that high this time around)
Sure I still had some issues: like how come the Fallen was never mentioned in the first part(He should've been around on mars too, right? if not were did he come from?). How can Starscream be in charge of everything if the fallen is Megatron's master? and the somewhat annoying twin bots. But because of the low expectations, I wasn't bothered much by it.
Action was good...Megan was hot...Shia was OK....Optimus Rocked! I think real fans will appreciate/enjoy this part more!
But if you are a nitpicking movie buff like me...I advise you to lower your expectations by a thousand, throw any kind of logic or science(for that matter)out the window and enjoy Revenge of the Fallen for what it is. a popcorn-summer-blockbuster!
