Transformers 2 : Revenge of the Fallen

A little bit of spoiler ahead, if you have not watched it and don't want me to ruin it for you, I suggest you close this tab / window now and come back after you watched the movie.

I watched Transformers 2 : Revenge of the Fallen, last Thursday.


Before watching it, there were a lot of reviews and comments given by a lot of friends, movie-goers and blogger friends. Some would say lousy, some would say so-so, some would be insanely loving it and went for 6 times (yes I do have a friend that did hahaha) so that would mean definitely great!

So I went with all this in my mind… Not letting my hopes up nor down with it. Of course the cinema was crowded… was a full house that night I went. That was a lady at the seat right in front of me was having flu. OMG! H1N1? I was definitely in fear. But heck Transformers 2 was much interesting that her at the point of time. The movie starts 5mins past 9:00pm, caramel popcorn in hand, water in the cup holder… let the entertainment begin!

The movie lasted for 2hours and 30mins. There some scenes where of course wasn’t at all funny but the guy beside me laughed like it was hilarious! Like erm… what was so funny with Bumblebee coming out of nowhere and fighting the bot? Or when Bumblebee step on the Decepticon? I don’t see it being funny. Guess this is one the thing that annoys you in the cinema like foongpc mentioned haha.

Oh and to answer Pikey of where he lost the touching scenes, I believe it is at where Optimus Prime died and where Sam died.

So here is my point of view on the movie.
It is awesome! I definitely would watch it again. The storyline is good, the fighting scenes are awesome.
Of course somehow the Fallen One died too fast and the Devastator too. Just too easy…
They tried to introduce a number of the new Autobots and Decepticons. But somehow a lot of them were very random screens that wooosh by very fast and you end up not being able to see much of them. I definitely lost track of what Decepticons there were haha.

Arcee.The female motorcycle bot in Autobots. They didn’t do enough details on this one. Very mere wooshing around and about.

Ravage.Oh I love this from the Decepticons! Look at it! The structure they made, so smooth and you can feel the fierce-ness just by looking at it! My favorite for now.

This time round the robots were shown further in view i.e. bird’s eye view, zoomed out instead of zoomed in like the first movie which made the detailed of the robots very clear and amazing. Maybe this is one of the reasons why a lot of people didn’t enjoy this as much. No more near screen of the bots? Or maybe just less of Megan Fox? Hehe.

The Whettie is funny. Leg humper and Sam got jealous. They included a number of comedic scenes in this movie too. Like some scenes of Leo and Simmons haha. The one in the restroom is funny.

Well, like I said the storyline is good, the special effects are still awesome; love the fighting scenes but just lacking the detail of the bots. I love the scenery in Egypt and Jetfire was really funny; a Decepticon turned sides to Autobots. So Transformers get old too and he had a beard even haha.

Oh, have anyone ever wonder what happened to the female Decepticon that was after Sam? In Transformers 1, the soldiers used guns and bombs and the Scorpion bot’s tail was still alive, and in this they just used cars to ram her and all, and she is gone?

What do you think of Transformers 2 : Revenge of the Fallen?

Mei Teng said...

Wow..that last one's a pretty mean machine.

It's ok...I am not planning on watching. Not my cup of tea.

ladyviral said...

Brian Kinney : Yep I have to agree it is. The first one was definitely way better! Wonder if it was the whole zoomed in graphic they did and the part where it was "OMG NEW!" haha

ladyviral said...

Willie: Yea so sad! Omg! Have you watched it? :P

ladyviral said...

Pikey : Erm.. I don't mind watching it again, but of course wasn't so crazy until that I will purposely go watch it again. You know like accompany friend to watch ok.. not make friend go watch with me thing? haha.

ladyviral said...

Mei Teng : Oh yes it is. All Decepticons look mean.. and all the Autobots look kind. Must be to show the evil side :P and the kind side.

Oh why not, Mei Teng? Not a Transformers fan? Well, wait for the DVD, watching the special effect is good :).

xin said...

watched it last tues too! totally charmed by megan fox. but but, there were some small kids there screaming in the cinema, which totally irritated me -_-

foongpc said...

I have yet to watch it! That day want to go watch but my friend preferred to watch "Drag Me To Hell" so watched that instead. It was a great movie too so no regrets! Will watch Transformers2 later.

Oh, yes now you know what I experienced - some people just laugh aloud in the cinema when there's nothing funny to laugh about : )

foongpc said...

Watching MJ memorial service now. Mariah just gave a great performance with Trey Lorenz! : )

Ayie said...

watche dit last sunday and effects wise it's really good but i find the 1st part deeper than this one. I'm not saying it's bad, it's good but...there's a but...hehe

kenwooi.com said...

i think its overrated.. just okay to me.. and yeah, arcee didnt appear much.. just zoom in and out.. lol..

Life Ramblings said...

i haven't seen the movie but i've read about the positive reviews from the newspapers.

Life Ramblings said...

i'm not a transformer fan but the blend of the cool robot characters have captured the hearts of ppl all over the world. :)

ladyviral said...

xin : Yea screaming kids! I hate those... parents should control their kids and teach them not to behave like they are at home in a cinema. pfft!

ladyviral said...

foongpc : "Drag Me To Hell" - was it scary as I thought it was? :P I wanted to watch it too, but no body wants to watch with me haha. Dangit!

Ah yes do let us know what you think of Transformers 2 after you seen it :).

Ha yea... he was weird.. laughing at weird scenes and he stank! >.<

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Oooh yea the effect was good! Well, storyline base if compared to Transformers 1 of course 1 beats 2! Somehow most movies are always like that.

Ah yes.. there is a "but"... I know I can't seem to mention what is missing haha.. eventually I just figured it might be the whole not much detail of the bots thing... that not enough Megan Fox in sexy poses! hahaha

ladyviral said...

kenwooi : Well, it isn't all great. Effects as usual is awesome... storyline is good... But I still think it is the lack of bots detail! hahaha :P.

ladyviral said...

Life Ramblings : I was not a fan of Transformers when I was young.. I find the cartoon weird :P. But got hook as I grew up I guess.

Newspaper seems to be comparing Ice Age 3 with Transformers 2 lately. I don't think there is any comparison between this two. Totally different genre.

Yea I believe a lot of people who watches it are for the cool robots. I had a friend who never knew what was Transformers, went to watch Trasnformers 2 and was like "OMG! I am in love with cars!" hahaha.

Bengbeng said...

I think i must b the last person not to watch it. everybody else seems to have done so

ladyviral said...

BengBeng : naw... Life Ramblings haven't. Mei Teng isn't a fan of it... foongpc have not either! hehee.. so you're not the last yet :P.

Ayie said...

so many flaws with the realism of their stunts too...I know they have to keep megan and shiah well kept and groomed but imagine they were thrown and rolled into the dessert and they were stil flawlessly clean with megan's white jeans? haha am i so much of a critic? and take note...no sweats! good thing they got all dirty duing the battle and struggle to go to optimus. just minor details and some other =)

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Wow you took note of Megan's white jeans! Hahaha I was so busy watching the bang bang boom, I didn't notice! Hahaha good one Ayie!

Ayie said...

coz they were always groomed as the action was rolling...too imposible for a dessert. Imagine rolling around getting undirty? hahahaha

ladyviral said...

Ayie : haha. That is much very true! Guess they miss out that part and got caught by you :P. Should send in a critic to them for it haha.

Besides, they have to keep making her look good. She is like "the" object of the movie apart from the bots.

Ayie said...

She'll just always be the accessory part there but eventually people will look for better acting and all. Usually people tend to be more critic about the sequel comparing it with the prequel.

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Couldn't agree more hahah. She is going to be Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider though. So the media says.

Ayie said...

i don't think it's already confirmed but there's a high possibility coz the next lara croft is a little like the wolverine the origins...it's a flashback on the young lara croft. since jolie and fox has always been compared, she might land the role...who knows?! but for me, jolie can pull the part more than her, it's the attitude!

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Oh? I thought It was confirmed. But X-Men : Wolverine Origins still used Hugh Jackman and still looked good though you can still the fine lines. haha.

Yes, but I remember reading somewhere they claim they wanted someone with the more original bigger boobs. Odd way to find the right person haha. Jolie can pul lit off well, but I guess it is the age. They need someone younger to potray the young Lara Croft.

Ayie said...

It's more of monopolizing on fox's fame right now but if she doesn't deliver good enough then that's the end of the lara croft series. make up can do wonders, just like benjamin button. did they have to get another young or old brad pitt look alike? I think coz Jolie expressed she won't be making much movies anymore that's why.

This bombastic follow-up delivers everything you'd expect from a Michael Bay sequel: big action, bad jokes and lots of circling-camera shots.
