Movie Reviews Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen

Subscribe to Roger Moore alerts

Reviews rarely come more caustic than the early ones for Transformers Revenge of the Fallen -- even from critics who had had nice things to say about the original. For example, Claudia Puig in USA Today comments "Bigger, louder, longer and more metallic is definitely not better. Where the first movie was a happy surprise, a comedy with engaging characters and spectacular action-filled escapades, the sequel lacks wit, charm, subtlety, restraint, humanity and clever dialogue. It has loads of spectacle but no soul." Saying that he wished he "could explain the plot," Lou Lumenick in the New York Post remarks that the movie is "squarely aimed at 8-year-old boys and men who never quite matured past that stage." Peter Howell in the Toronto Star says it's a movie filled with "booms and boobage" that is so noisy, it's "akin to lying on the tarmac at Pearson International while a revving Airbus A 380 rolls over you." Roger Moore in the Orlando Sentinel asks "Is it the worst movie of the summer? Possibly. Will everybody see it? Probably." But Rafer Guzmán in Newsday concludes "The battles between giant robots are astoundingly detailed, and cleverly set in organic places like forests and deserts that add to the realism. Like its predecessor, this Transformers is a terrific guilty pleasure."
