"Revenge of the Fallen" Press Reviews
Reviews for "Revenge of the Fallen" have begun to appear online at major news venues and fan sites. Here are some quotes from various reviews:
San Francisco Chronicle
"Funny, percussive and 20 minutes too long, the film could do with less of its overserious Pyramids battle climax. "
"It’s eye-candy for your inner toddler, a big, stupid, live-action cartoon made by robots and probably best enjoyed by robots."
"Though there are more special effects and new ways for machines to turn into 'bots, the story seems as if it's about to end at least three times."
Philadelphia Daily News
"It's the movie to see if the most important person in your life is Optimus Prime. If, like me, you think Optimus Prime is a Roman steakhouse, move on."
"Fortunately, this metal mess is enlivened by John Turturro, who shows up and injects the surprisingly raunchy film with a raunchily funny line or two."
The Boston Globe
"The sequel to the 2007 summer hit “Transformers’’ - based on the Hasbro line of snap-together battle-bots and thus the ultimate toyification of American cinema - offers nothing for mature adult sensibilities. On the contrary, it laughs at the very idea and then blows more stuff up."
Believe it or not, I looked for positive quotes in these reviews, but there weren't many. It is important to note that most critics hated the first movie as well. While I have my personal gripes with the flick that you can read about in my review, I still think it is a fun film that you can enjoy, if you check your brain at the door.
