Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

Two years ago, Hasbro and Paramount pictures treated us to a live action version of Transformers. Being that it was directed by Micheal Bay (and was given his usual movie treatment), and had Shia as a leading actor within the film, the reaction of the movie was more split down the middle than any other film in existence. Half hated it with a passion, the other half liked/loved the film and felt it did the franchise the best amount of justice it would get. After all, we are talking about a Japanese cartoon series, based in the 80s, whose plot was actually episodic with the occasional two/three part-er, that was about no more than robots fighting each other.

Since the first film gained massive amounts of money, the only thing to do was create a sequel, and we have Revenge of the Fallen.

What Revenge of the Fallen fixes:

1) More shots of the robots. Even those who loved the first movie will agree it was a human fest, with hardly any robot shots (their vehicle forms do not count). Of course with the movie being about them first arriving, that can actually be forgiven. RotF gives the fans more of what they want; more screen time of key robots in their robot forms.

2) More robot dialogue. Optimus Prime, Megatron, even Starscream have twice the amount of lines they had in the first movie. The only problem is, with the exception of Jetfire, Fallen, and Wheelie (voiced by 80s Megatrons voice actor), they are the only Transformers you hear lines from. The others are new to the movie so of course they'll get lines over the others from the last film.

3) Starscream and Megatron arguing. But Starscream reacts more like a dominated dog instead of standing tall to him like he did in the old cartoon.

4) Easier to watch fight scenes. There are more robot on robot fight scenes in this film and they are a beauty to watch compared to the last film. It is easier to tell who's who and who's winning. Nothing more epic than seeing Optimus being a one man army against 3 Decipticons as well.

Alas, even with so many fixes, RotF is still a little plague with glitches. The major being that Bumble Bee still can't seem to find his voice. The radio talking gets a little annoying. There are questionable footage edited in weird places, and some dry humor. Then there's the Decipticons themselves. The only ones you will see and hear from are Fallen, Megatron, Starscream, and Wheelie. The others are unnamed cannon fodder brought in towards the end of the film (except the Constructicons/Devastator, unless you did not know about them being in the film).

If you are someone who enjoyed the first movie, you will undoubtedly love RotF. If you saw but did not like the first movie, you should give this one a try at least. Be warned, it is capped at 2 and a half hours, but it was defiantly a blast to see. This film is worth the money for a ticket.
