Movie Review "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," with Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox

I don't know why the critics hate this movie so much. This movie is really good. The action sequences are incredibly good-looking, but that's about it. If you're in it for action, your reaction will vary, because they do go on for too long and most of them are pointless. The story is SO stupid and abstract that there's no point trying to get it. BUT, this movie DOES have two things going for it which makes it great: comedy and Megan Fox.

That's right, comedy. This movie is hilarious, with moments, lines, and scenes that will have you in hysterics. What makes it so funny is that it's completely obvious that almost all of the comedy is either by accident of unintentional. There are only 2 times as far is I know where it was put in there on purpose. Michael Bay (the director) obviously sucks when it comes to plot or emotion. But that makes it even funnier. The villains are also laughable, because they range from mildly badass to plain ridiculous,including one of the funniest characters in the movie, a Decepticon (one of the bad guy Transformers) that can take the form of a remote control plastic truck, who is SO stupid that he launches one-liners left and right, especially at the ever-HAWT Megan Fox (the best one is "You may be hot, but you're not that bright.") But he's really funny, with a "stunt" so sudden that it will creep you out ad make you laugh. There's also two bigger good Transformers (called "Autobots") that have metallic buck teeth and sound like modern day gangster stereotypes, which also have their funny moments. Another funny character is Shia LeBeouf's character's mom, who was the funniest character from the original movie (her line "Are you masturbating again?" was the best moment of the first film), actually wearing baby shoes as a necklace and accidentally eating a marijuana brownie (yes, she does that, and gets high), are some of the funniest moments.

The other big factor of why this movie is so great is Megan Fox. She is hot. That's basically it, and the reason why I went to see this in the first place. She doesn't dissapoint, with so-sexy-it-can't-be-coincdence moments with her thrown in the film. The first time you see her, she's wearing a really small tank top and extremely short jeans, straddling a motorcycle. Yes. Another one is her head lying on another characters groin after they teleport (yes, TELEPORT) to Egypt. Don't ask. She's amazing.

The plot and characters are hard to understand. The plot is basically Shia LeBeouf finds a piece of alien rock thingy that makes him go nuts and starts writing weird words everywhere and goes to college and is attacked by a bad Transformer and drags Megan Fox with him to meet some guy who was a secret agent and goes to Egypt to find some thingy to kill another bad Transformer called The Fallen who is trying to activate a machine inside a pyramid that will destroy the sun. Oh, and Optimus Prime, too.

My thing about the bad guys being ridiculous earlier mentioned before, i just have to say that there's a bad Transformer that is created from several truck thingy and has wrecking balls for BALLS. Literally. Like this one actually had nuts and was called Devastator. Not kidding. Go see this movie now. Because Megan Fox is in it.

Score: 9/10
