Review: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2/5)

DIRECTOR: Michael Bay (Armageddon, Pearl Harbor)

TAGLINE: Revenge is coming.

STARRING: Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel

THE GIST: The Decepticons return to Earth, resurrect Megatron, and plan to take over the Earth. But when there’s trouble, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! Oops, wrong movie.

MSNBC SAYS: A cinematic avalanche in which Michael Bay eschews anything that resembles plot or characters and instead screams at the audience's eyes for two and a half hours.

I SAY: We all should know by now that the name Michael Bay is synonymous to massive explosions and larger-than-life encounters. With the second installment to the Transformers saga, Bay does not only blow everything up, he also gives us a mouthful of military BS. Despite the high-octane action, “Transformers 2” should have just stayed in the junkyard instead or wreaking havoc in our cinemas. I’m still trying to figure out why I sung praises for the first movie. What got into me?
