So we went to the Transformers (2) movie last Saturday. I did mention that it received rotten reviews (one I saw received a 1 & 1/2 stars.... ). I have to say I disagree with the ratings.
First off -- I KNOW when I'm going to a summer smash-em-up blockbuster type movie that I'm not expecting edification.
The plot had holes in it. Yeah. So what!
The graphics were AWESOME, the adventure / suspense / cool factor was high and it was quick moving. If it had been truly bad, I would have stopped feeling my suspension of disbelief and I didn't. There were a few kinks here and there, and I did spend a bit more time than I could have looking for where Shia LeBeouf had the cast / wrapping on his had because he rolled his car in real life and smashed it to smithereens.
Ok, I did find Megan Fox to be more of the sexpot than anything else, but frankly, it was OK by me and I know that that's what the director wanted.
It wasn't Shakespeare -- BUT -- I wasn't expecting Shakespeare.
So I was fine with the whole thing.
Son number one wants to see it again.
Maybe we will.
