2-Second Movie PREview: TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

transformers2We’ve all been waiting for this week to arrive, and it’s finally here. The grand opening of Michael Bay’s new opus Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Even though it’s been out for a couple of days, and even though I missed opening night due to an ear infection, and even though it’s so-far received horrible reviews across the board, I posit — not having seen this movie — that it will be my favorite of the year. Why? For the exact same reason that so many people love to hate on Michael Bay: his movies kick ass. They are full of explosions, amazing action sequences, and people who are hot. There are few lines, and simple plots. People talk about the fact that Transformers 2 has no plot, and, like Marty McFly’s high school band, that it’s “just too darn loud.” The plot is simple: huge robots from Cyberton come to Earth to transform into Pontiac Solstices.  And then they fight each other.  Those who complain that the acting should be better or that the movie shouldn’t be so broad need to remind themselves that they’re watching a loud, kick ass American made movie that stars huge robots from Cybertron who come to Earth to transform into Pontiac Solstices and fight each other.  I can’t wait to see it and I guarantee I will break my no-more-DVD’s-rule and buy it on DVD.
