*warning-please don't proceed your reading if you don't want to be spoiled when watching this megablockbuster movie*
Technically, of course, the movie represents state-of-the-art CGI overkill, with metallic behemoths that roar and unpack themselves and leap tall buildings and are forever smashing the masonry. They’re visually astonishing and ultimately exhausting. All Bay knows is the action that never stops, the detonations that reach orgasmically ever higher, the chase scenes that build and crash and build some more.
So what if he can’t put a coherent series of shots together? Bay’s going for pure sensation, and everyone knows dramatic continuity is for women and the weak. The plot is incomprehensible. The dialog of the Autobots, Deceptibots and Otherbots is meaningless word flap. Racist, their ["Africans" one] appearance looks like junkyard throw-up. They are dumb as a rock. They share the film with human characters who are much more interesting, and that is very faint praise indeed.
The only thing in this film that even approaches cleverness and care in writing is the subtle jab at Barack Obama [writing him as a crap who almost kicks the Autobots off the planet - thus making him a far more credible threat than either Megatron or The Fallen..lol]
We get to see what a Michael Bay Species movie would be like thanks to an inexplicable Decepticon in Human Disguise. Now tell me, if they could be human beings, wouldn't it make more sense to hide AS THEM? Not cars or boom boxes and portable toilets?hihi
Why do the Decepticons bring Sam's family to EGYPT and said it was a trap?? I don’t see Sam been caught after his parents been released! Mm, if they ask for “ransom” from Sam during “live telecast”, I think its better!
How that Megan Fox's character manages to stay perfectly oily and with perfect makeup through hundreds explosions where thousands of pounds of debris blast in and around her? aisyioo~
Why is China suddenly cool enough with the US that they allow it to operate freely, heavily armed, and in large numbers within its borders? And they're suddenly cool enough with the US that they allow them into their airspace to airdrop semi trucks?
Where is Egyptians when the Jordanians fight the evil robot?Why US Navy not continuously use their magical laser blaster since it working? hadoyhlaaa~
Is there NO “Pyramid Freaks” on that day? Is it Egypt is hypnotized sleep all over day?? No press, no army until US should send their own predator to view the situation!
Huh, the Allspark? What was that about? The Quintessons created the transformers the autobots as builders and engineers and the decepticons and guards and soldiers. They rebelled against their creators and took over cybertron but soon the opposing natures of the two machine races lead to war as the decepticons wanted to wage a war of conquest across the universe the autobots want to spread knowledge and enlightenment across the universe.
The resulting war uses all the available energy in cybertron's solar system and so the decepticons set out to find more energy the autobots follow them and the resulting space battle leads to the leaders and entourage of both races crashing on earth millions of years ago. Then both races are awakened in our time and the fight begins again.
Sounds like a much better backstory then that Allspark stuff doesn't it? Well that's cause it’s the original story. So, I think they better substitute Bay’s line with Transformers Freaks director crews after this!
Hopefully after this they give more action, robot destruction and as little attempts at depth as possible and very little human drama. I want to see complicated autobots with supergiga weapon, bombing and DEATH!!! Basically, this movie’s ending is better than the first one but for plot it is much more better than this time!
SRi:Exhilarating or excruciating, depending on your point of view..
