The only problem with Michael Bay’s masterpiece, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, is that it is too full of awesome.
That’s a vague assessment, but it is a true one. I09 has a much more elaborate and Freudian take on the movie, but I don’t really feel like thinking that hard. The new Transformers is a good movie because it is completely and utterly an original monster. You have never seen a movie like this before. Ever. There are robots the size of houses fighting each other. And they aren’t just fighting each other. They are beating each other to a point where I want to say that the violence is too much. It is clear when you see the combat. Autobots and Decepticons hate each other more than any two foes have ever hated. They kick and claw and shoot with passion and lust in their eyes. It is unreal to see and I almost peed myself. I almost peed myself twice. But, I don’t want to go insane too fast, and the action isn’t the only thing that makes it a good flick. With this movie, Michael Bay has solidified himself as being the only director that could ever do justice to Transformers. There has to be a reward somewhere for that. Spoiler ahead. Lots and lots of spoilers ahead.
