|Revenge is coming||[All Movie Photos]|
But thanks to jamypye and her almost/practically boyfriend (gasp! hey, it's her words, not mine), I got a free movie right before we leave for the summer capital of the Philippines. And I didn't even have to line up. Hey, this sister with an almost/practically boyfriend business is suddenly benefiting me.
What wasn't bad either was the movie itself. Though the critics panned it as the 5th worst movie (so far), I wouldn't quite agree with them this time. The only flaw for me would be the pretty lengthy 147 minutes, but then again, maybe it was my contacts that were bothering me. I think so.
So the critics weren't so happy...

At least the special effects in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen are remarkable: You never tire of the endless variations of robots Bay and his computer-generated effects crew come up with.The special effects and CGI have totally outdone themselves. Though I was very bad at telling the baddies apart from each other the goodies were all so pretty and shiny and just all around pretty to watch. If a tenth of this CGI/special effects is what I'm guaranteed for New Moon then consider me happy, because the transformations were amazing and everything felt oh so real -- even if we're talking abour Robots here.
Carrie Rickey of the Philadelphia Inquirer said:
Roughly an hour in, Transformers 2 morphs from teen adventure into lumbering war movie. Bay and his screenwriters squander their human capital in order to show us scenes of 20-ton toys crushing 10-ton toys.After one hour of the movie, we finally get to Egypt and hear what the hell is going on between the Autobots and the Decepticons and by this time, my contacts have dried up and I'm blinking frantically away. I also blame fatigue, but I didn't fall asleep, but I was hoping the movie would go by faster. Still, I do wish there were more human-face-time as opposed to all the robot-action going on during the latter half of the film. I actually missed Sam's parents for a bit there.
Michael Philips of the Chicago Tribune said:
Fox's cleavage is the only camera object that catches Bay's attention for more than a millisecond.And yes, Megan Fox is extra hot in this movie. I mean every frame she's in, they make sure to cram
... but as always the non-critic was pretty pleased
