Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen’s HUGE success an understatement

June 24 marked the opening of the much awaited and highly anticipated sequel of the Transformers movie franchise. Earmarked as Revenge of the Fallen, the movie promises to have a huge cast of Autobots and Decepticons to flood the screen with their gigantic presence and awe us with the eye-opening fight scenes.

Story-wise, it’s not all that’s cracked up to be. At first I was disappointed that Transformers 2 got a 24% review from, but it turned out the critics were right. Not to actually base my review on their words, but Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen did lack storyline or the fact that most of the storyline ended up being underappreciated by the special effects. Either way, story was not that good.

As a Transformers fan since I was little, counting also the Transformers toys that I had back then, seeing my toys on the big screen was by far the one of the most fulfilling experiences ever. Seeing Sideswipe, Arcee, Devastator and the Constructicons, Jetfire, and Optimus come to life in the big screen made me ecstatic. Boo for you guys who don’t know jack about the Transformers since you clearly missed out a lot on your childhood.

The special effects were AMAZING. Michael Bay outdid himself, in a good and bad way. There was just too much special effects that it drowned out the entire storyline, as earlier stated. The explosions was earth-shattering; literally. Seeing robots go in a TITANIC close quarter combat would make any man cry for joy, and any Transformers die-hard fan shed a tear at the realism of the legendary robots.

This review may be biased, but as far as I am concerned, Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen was the best movie that’s come out this year and I cannot wait for part 3.
