Transformers 2 blew my mind! I don’t care what the critics say, or what the reviewers think of it, the movie was so bad ass that it was super totally freaking awesome! Say what you want about Michael Bay’s directing style but the man knows how to blow things up. I haven’t read any reviews but from what I hear, people are saying that it received bad review. To anyone who gave Transformers 2 a bad review, I say to them, “Kekekekuke!”
If you’re afraid of spoilers, I would suggest that you don’t read this because I can’t guarantee that I won’t slip up. If you haven’t seen the movie before reading this, I would suggest you run out and watch it. And when I say run, you run!
The movie opened Tuesday but there was no way that I would have made it to that show since I had an exam the next day. But at the same time, it was hard to studying knowing that the new movie was out and I was stuck at home studying for an exam. It’s hard to concentrate when your mind is elsewhere.
This movie was just insanely jammed pack with non-stop action. I can’t remember much of the dialog that went on but I remember the action sequence. When the DVD comes out, I can see myself watching this over and over and over again. I don’t think I can ever get sick and tired of giant robots walking around and transforming into vehicles.
If you’re not too familiar with the history of Transformers, the sequel doesn’t spend too much time explaining each individual characters. There were a lot of Autobot and Decepticons running around but very little time to introduce them. I knew a free from them from the series but since a lot of them have changed their vehicle mode form, it’s hard to tell who’s who. Heck, I’m so used to see Devastator in a certain form that I didn’t even recognized him in the trailers. When I saw the Contructicons in the movie combine to become Devastator, that’s when I realized that it was him. And Devastator has some huge balls in this movie. I couldn’t stop laughing at it.
Speaking of which, I think the robots had more human like traits this time around. When Sam was leaving for college, Bumblebee was crying windshield washer fluid. When each robot was being destroyed, they leaked fluid. They even went as far as given them breath. When Megatron was speaking, you can see his breath because it was so cold.
Before going to watch the movie, I read up on a few rumours that were running out. The one that caught my attention was the idea that Optimus will be combining with Jetfire. Optimus is my favourite character and I have a few of his figurines but the ones that I love are the ones where he combines with another Autobot. I was really interested in seeing how they were going to animated the combination sequence. But let me tell you, I was on the edge of my seat in awe when I saw it. Optimus Prime couldn’t look any more awesome than that. The movie could have ended like that and I would have gone home happy.
If you’re like me and love action movies because of the action, you won’t be disappointed. Maybe there were some plot holes in the movie but I didn’t remember much of it. I think Jenn had a lot of questions because the movie didn’t explain everything. The special effects were crazy awesome. I think they went all out on this one. The movie appears to be aimed more towards the older crowd this time. Heck, Optimus called one of the Decepticons a bitch after he destroyed him. Even the humour was more mature. It’s not something that every kid will laugh at. I’m sure that they’ll be in awe with the transformation sequence but they’ll stay quiet during the jokes.
