Well here we go again. I’m fully prepared for a debate on this – but it looks like once again we’re going to be treated to what could be a really cool uber-action flick punctuated by moments of annoying stupidity. I was willing to give Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen a chance… I really was. But I see that some of the more moronic aspects of the first film have not been left behind, but have instead latched a ride on Transformers 2 as well.

Before I go on, check out the brand spanking new Transformers 2 trailer yourself:


“What you are about to see is Top Secret. Don’t tell my mother.”

“I feel smarter already. Can you smell it?

Just shoot me.

So we have John Turturro back as the moronic FBI agent, along with the vacuous parents of Shia LeBeouf’s character. Ugh.

I don’t have a problem with Megan Fox in the movie, and I certainly won’t complain about that cheesecake shot in the trailer – although if you’re one of those people making excuses for the retarded humor because “it’s for kids,” juxtapose that against what looks like a shot from a Maxim photo shoot. If you still defend that, it strikes me as disingenuous.

If I could somehow manage to block the dumb crap from my brain, the trailer actually looks pretty intense and awesome. I loved the locations and seeing those Transformers coming up from the depths of the ocean looked pretty intimidating and cool.

The word is that this one will be darker and more intense – that will make the “LOLs” stand out even in more stark contrast than the first. All I can hope is that maybe they decide to get all that out of the way early on and don’t interrupt tense battle and action scenes with a first grader’s one liners.

On the bright side it looks like Michael Bay may have fixed another annoyance from the first film: Unintelligible action scenes. From what is shown above it looks like the camera may actually have been pulled back a bit for a wider angle on the robot battles – it would be nice to actually be able to make out what’s going on during these fight sequences.

You can find HD versions of the trailer over at Yahoo! Movies.

OK. I’m ready. Bring it.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens on June 24th.

  1. this movie is going to be bad ass

  2. I’ll tut at the dumbass jokes, sigh at the stupid storyline, but I’ll still really enjoy huge mofo robots beating the rust out of each another and blowing stuff up!

    Looks superior to the first TRANSFORMERS, so far…

  3. I watched in horror as the cartoon i grew up with took a perverted and twisted turn for the worst in this movie.. parents beware. Unlike the first movie where the rating of PG-13 mainly came from the animated violence and the occasional sweat glistening from Megan Fox, who plays as Sams girlfriend Mikaela, stomach. In this wonderful twist of tales the action is much more extreme, as well as the language in which sh**, a**hole, bit**, and a few other new words excluded from the first are tossed in, but you will have the privilege of not only watching Sams dog mojo try to hump a dog in 2 different scenes.. but you will get to watch a remote control truck that is a decepticon dry hump Mikaelas leg. You will see a comment made about a decepticon having a set of balls (which are VERY visible in the scene). Whether they will admit it or not, this movie is geared towards kids, this is why you can buy transformer toys (ages 6 and up), lunch boxes (cause you know the schools are FULL of 13 year olds walkin around with an Optimus Prime lunchbox). The first one I was ok with letting my kids watch, and if they release a censored form of this new movie I would let my kids watch that as well.. the humping, balls comment and language was unnecessary to have in the movie as it served absolutely no purpose except to get an adolescent child to mimic what they have seen or heard and share with their friends about how the scenes were as funny as farting. I was EXTREMELY disappointed watching a movie that had the characters from my childhood twisted into this garbage.

    I urge you to at least watch the movie first by yourself before you bring your child(ren) expecting the same sort of “pg-13″ material that was rated for the first movie.

  4. I remain a fan of the Transformers franchise even if the second installment of the trilogy fared way below our expectations. Transformers 1 was so good I expected a better one in Revenge of the Fallen. But what I saw was proof that the first one is indeed hard to top.

    The one thing I like about remakes of cartoons we saw as kids is the detailed rendition of the characters. It makes every scene so realistic. To quote a classmate, “kinilig pati mga lalake” when Prime transformed from truck-mode to robo-mode. I won’t say na kinilig ako, pero I also liked that part in the first movie. Sobrang astig.

    The realistic CGI played well especially during fight scenes. Well, I thought the fight scenes in Transformers 1 was quite long. But in Revenge of the Fallen, it was not just long, it was I-am-bored-already long. Yes, the special effects during the fight scenes were amazing, and I really liked them. But the story goes away once you show too much fight scenes.

    And Prime dying midway to be resurrected before it all ends? Nothing can be more predictable than that.
