I squealed with thrill when I first saw the trailer.
I couldn't wait to watch the movie.
I got excited just watching the Dreamworks intro, the one with the kid sitting at the edge of the moon, fishing.
Then the movie started.
And...I dozed off. A number of times. Waking up to sudden loud sounds and people laughing, leaving me fuzzy of what just happened, and became that annoying person in cinemas who's a bit slow with things and asks neverending questions.
The movie wasn't that bad, that it lulled me to sleep. And it's not that good either, in my honest opinion. I was just really, really sleepy. 'Coz if it was good, there'd be no chance of dozing off, right?
Sure there were more robots, bigger and awesomer, more action scenes, more metal crushing gore, and more shots of Fox's butt and everything's larger than life, but it still didn't actually fulfilled my expectation.
I did heed the review warnings and lowered my expectations (i.e. left my brain home) but still, I wasn't impressed.
There were a couple of anomalies in the movie, like, Megatron is NOT the ultimate ruler, and there's a Decepticon who can transform into a human hot minx. A friend whose other religion is Transformers confirmed this, including several other stuffs like, the Twin robots are actually Decepticons, but became the good guys in the movie. And the plot was a mess.
BUT. The thing that I dislike the most about the movie is its slapstick and unnecessary humor. It's like Michael Bay was trying too hard to keep up to his raised bar from the first movie. And failed miserably, though it did manage to entertain people who um, are just easily entertained. Come on, did you expect a light hearted action packed movie when you see this poster and read its tagline?
Lovers of Transformers 2 might hate me, and those who haven't watch the movie might scorn me for being a spoiler here; but hey, I dozed off every 10 minutes during the second half of the movie, what do I know about criticising it?
