Movie Review: Transformer 2-Revenge of the Fallen


Synopsis from Wikipedia:

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a 2009 American science fiction action film which was released on June 19, 2009 in the United Kingdom and June 24, 2009 in North America. It is the sequel to 2007’s Transformers and the second film in the live action Transformers series. Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg return respectively as director and executive producer, while Shia LaBeouf reprises the role of Sam Witwicky, the human caught in the war between Autobots and Decepticons. The film introduces many more robots and the scope has been expanded to numerous countries, most notably France, Jordan and Egypt. The plot revolves around Sam, who has been having visions of Cybertronian symbols, getting hunted by the evil Decepticons under the orders of their long-trapped leader, The Fallen. The Fallen seeks to get revenge on Earth by finding and activating a machine that would provide the Decepticons with an energon source, destroying all life on the planet in the process.

My Take:
I really waited for a month or so before commenting on these violent, sex-angst laden film. It is more than 2 hours long-and filled with mythological (as in Von Danikennish myths) references to Egyptian gods and symbols. The difference is that they did not pursue the line that we were experiments of an alien race. However, it also put a doubt on our uniqueness as a creation of our God. In fact it posits a theory that the Primes are even much much older. There is also a ‘dream-vision’ portion field with the Primes-but no heaven.

The first movie was much fun-cartoon tv series turn into a movie. But it is no longer. You might even mistake it for  a continuation of “Black-Hawk Down” for the ferociousness of its battle scenes. And yes-we know Megan Fox is “hot”-but why emphasized it a lot. And the parents-they were fumbling in the first movie-but now-they are sex-crazed. Some people do not know when to stop. They had it going great the last time. They could have been on it instead of making a monster out of the transformers
