Great review, Proto, but you forgot to mention Devastator's giant robo-testicles. Seriously, did you miss them? They were dangling down when he/it was climbing the pyramid. Michael Bay is apparently quite proud of himself for that joke...I honestly thought of killing myself.

I don't know why but my cousins love the Michael Bay transformers. Everytime I go down to their place they try to get me to watch the second one, and this is just another source I can cite to tell them to stop.

It's things like this that made me glad that i stopped going to the movies after 28 days later came out. Hollywood has messed up so many movies and I am not throwing away any more of my money on the sad piles that they try to pass of as entertaining. (note: I did enjoy 28 days later, i just thought it was the last movie that I felt was worth paying for.)

I was also very offended by the racist caricatures in this film. I mean in the last movie, it was just a break dancing robot who spoke in slang and got killed first, in this one, shit goes way to far.

Fuck Michael Bay.

Taco Head, there have been some good movies at the theaters since 28 days later. Star Trek, District 9, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Zombieland. Plus I am sure many more. Of course Transformers 2 isn't on that list.

Shia Labeouf's tears are magic and life saving. Like that sock he had the Matrix in.

Also my web browser is telling me Labeouf isn't a word. I love Mozilla.

This entire movie offended me in ways I thought not possible. Every copy should be smashed, pissed on, loaded onto a rocket and shot into the sun.

Good to know I don't quite go to the movies anymore and rather wait until the DVD of a good movie comes out.

only one thing wrong with this review Proto (and I don't know how people get these accents mixed up), Jetfire was a cantankerous, bearded, elderly Australian. Not British.

I never thought I would see a movie not by Uwe Boll that would give Alone in the Dark a run for its money.

...This does. Horrifyingly so.

All the warning I needed came from my roommate's glowing review: "It's just like the first one, only MORE!"

So more giant robots fighting, that could be cool. Unfortunately, it's still sandwiched between the alternately dull and annoying human-centered plots and some of... no, make it the most painfully unfunny attempts at humor ever shat out by Hollywood, ranking only slightly above Seltzer and Friedberg in terms of sheer agony. This movie's "comedy" basically works out to the filmmakers grasping you by the nape and screaming, "Hey look, these robots are acting like those crazy darkies we've heard about, and Shia LaBeouf's mom is trippin' balls on hash brownies! Now laugh at it, bitch!!"

I agree about the part where they let Optimus' corpse just flop to the ground. Had me laughing throughout most of the movie. Total agreement in general with this review, but I think it was a bit too nice. This is easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen, made all the more insulting in just how much money was wasted on it (both to make it and to watch it). It's a film that gave audiences the privilege of paying to be spat on in four different colors (that is, silver and three shades of shit brown).

All the more reason not to waste time on it. Im actually kind of surprised Proto took the time to grace it with a review at all.

After this movie came out, I was interviewed by a local radio station for my thoughts on it. I felt as though I had to apologize for all its... stuff.

Now I never said i havent seen a new movie since 28 days later, there have been some great movies that have come out. (I'm not really a star trek fan, it was good but more of my husbands kind of thing). I will not pay to see it in a theater, but i will wait to rent, buy on DVD, or have a friend lone it to me. Tickets cost too much at my salary right now.

the movie was bad, i'm glad i saw it for free... although it'd be the same if Godzilla was thrown into the mix... I'd love to see that, since Godzilla ALWAYS fights big alien beings from space.

Well, Proto got it spot on. Michael Bay needs to die for this and for Armageddon. One other thing that always bugged me about this movie and the first one: why in the fuck is the hero (I mean the whiny little bitch) named Sam? His name is supposed to be Spike! Spike, damn it, SPIKE!

Oh, and caffman: Canadians are French convicts, not British.

Pfft. YOU THINK YOU WASTED MONEY!!!!

I SAW THIS IN IMAX

I blame the writers strike for this being bad as it was. I wasn't expecting it to be supreme but definitely not this bad. I hated how they introduced Jetfire and the Fallen, they would do something for 5 mins and then wouldn't be in the movie for an hour. Then later on they're all like "Oh yeah, I haven't been on camera but I'm still here.....doing stuff."

Also, most Transformers look like they were from Lego: Bionicle.

What I can't believe is that my parents REALLY LIKED this movie. Both this one, and the first. They were like this with Van Helsing too, and that movie was incredibly boring. I can't see what they find so delightful about them.
