My review of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is now up on Attack This! The short and skinny: I didn't hate it as I thought I would of. You can view the full review (here).
It's time for another edition of Review Haikus; a feature I like to write when I'm too lazy to write out full reviews~!!! The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Tony Scott schlockfest~! All his movies seem the same. A needless remake. Denzel's a bad-ass. Given up on Travolta. 1 of 2 ain't bad. Public Enemies Well? Disappointed. I expected more from Mann. The pacing felt off. Acting was good though. Man-crush on Depp and Bale. 5 more syllables! Saw VI Yes, another Saw. Harder to tell them apart. Blood, guts, bad story. Why more Saw movies? Each movie makes less and less. End this series now. ====== Later geeks!
Maybe it's because I never watched the first one, so I didn't really have a crappy point of reference.
I haven't seen the movie yet. I thought the trailer looked kick ass, and Fox is hot, but the reviews put me off. Given yours, I'll probably put it on my list for the Budget show.
When the trailers for the sequel came out, I thought they alone looked better than the first movie. I'd say at least give it a rent. But if you like seeing big explosions on the screen, then have at it in the cinemas.
