If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination.Wow. There are lots of unimpressed critics out there. I'm morbidly curious to see if it's as bad as everyone says (I'm usually pretty forgiving of Big Dumb Action Movies). But then again, I'm not going to pay for a ticket, since I thought the first Transformers was absolutely terrible. Unless someone else springs for my admission, I'll likely end up catching this on cable, where the small screen will no doubt make it even more of a jumbled mess.
The movie has been signed by Michael Bay. This is the same man who directed The Rock in 1996. Now he has made Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Faust made a better deal.
I find it amusing that creatures that can unfold out of a Camaro and stand four stories high do most of their fighting with...fists. Like I say, dumber than a box of staples.
