Transformers: Revenge of the Bad Story – 2 (of 4)

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
 left something to be desired. Like a story…

In a world where there are no unattractive women, where action seems more exciting when it’s slowed down, and where the United States gets to make judgment calls for the entire planet… we need large transforming robots to save the day!

Nutshell plot (I think): A shard of All-Spark puts mysterious images in Sam’s (Shia LeBeouf) head. He and his hot girlfriend are chased by Decepticons that want to use his knowledge to… blow up the sun! Ok?

And get this… Apparently Decepticons can look like this:

But usually look more like this:
tr2d

The jokes are cruder and dumber (mom gets high eating brownies in an utterly pointless scene). The storyline is random and jumbled. Transformers 2 feels like it’s being made up as it goes along. It goes from one unconnected event to another. Periodically we’re introduced to new information. Like Transformers have been on the planet for thousands of years, they can switch sides when they feel like it, a pointy knife thing can save lives and destroy suns. Random!

Even Geek Spawn observed: “This movie doesn’t seem to be about the robots at all.” And he’s kinda right. It seems that the Autobots follow the humans around like puppies throughout the movie. Literally in the case of Wheelie and Mikaela. But, who wouldn’t want to follow her around?

So, did I like it? Not particularly. It follows the trend of most part 2s (No offense Aliens). Tries too hard to be like it’s predecessor and pales in comparison.

Read yesterday’s blog about Transformers 1.
Tune in tomorrow for the review of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Am I alone here? Did anyone out there in Geekdom like this one? Comment me!
