Transformers began with cartoons and action figures. Many years later, it finally hit the big screen as a live action film. Critics raved about the first, but brutally killed this one. I completely disagree with them on every level. This is not supposed to be thought about as much as they did. It is an action film, not about story or character development.

The story was quite simple as is almost every action movie. Although it is simple, that does not mean that it cannot still work. Transformers 2 picks up from soon after Transformers 1 ended. The stories for the two films are different, but it helps to have seen the first before seeing this.

If anybody else has noticed, Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf are very talented actors. They provided very realistic interactions with not just each other, but the CGI graphics that were not there on set with them. They both give just what this movie truly needed, which is something that gave the look and the attitude of the film. They are perfect for the parts and gave a much stronger performance than they did in the previous film.

Visuals are the most important thing about this movie and the makers put a lot into it. The CGI effects were stunningly detailed and later in the movie, I forgot CGI was even being used. The autobots (the good) and the decepticons (the bad) had a great look to them. The designs that were used were spectacular. The explosions and war scenes were extremely well done. There were interactions with real life and the CGI throughout and explosions were real on set and looked great.

Overall, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen is this summer's action movie. It has everything from comedy to hardcore action. It is similar to the first Transformers movie, but everything was kicked up a notch. Any fan of Transformers or any action fan will be extremely pleased to buy a ticket to see this summer's greatest action film.

My Rating = Four and One Half  Stars
