I don’t care what the naysayers say. I liked Transformers. Megan Fox certainly helped. I love Shia Lebouf (sp). Josh Duhamel was also pretty good. Some trimming would have been nice. The movie certainly could have done the same work in 2 hours versus 2.5 hours.
I think we may have watched two different movies. The one I saw involved a dorky kid and his impossibly hot girlfriend ducking, dodging and occasionally kicking ass, while all around them, a bunch of giant alien robots blew each other up, and a bunch of military and government dudes flew around in airplanes and stuff. Beyond those basic, very enjoyable elements, the “plot” was formulaic, derivative and ran the gamut from nonsensical to retarded. Was I supposed to care? Cuz I thought it was pretty awesome.
Complaining about “unreconciled plot lines” in Transformers is like debating the nutritional value of Cheetos.
What did the military even have to do with naything? Why were Josh Duhamel and Tyrese fighting scorpion Decepticons in the desert? Why was Jon Voigt working with a porn star…err data analyst…to detect “vocal patterns”
I thought Shia was OK…but there were TOO MANY one liners…ie “YOU’RE A SOLDIER NOW!!!!”
Incredibly lame ass movie.
And didn’t Optimus Prime die in the original movie?
