My Rating: 3Stars

This evening I saw the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at Grand Cinema, Elements, West Kowloon, Hong Kong. Another one of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

Before I went to see this movie I avoided all the trailers on TV and at the cinemas, because there were more than the usual number of trailers I did not want to see all the actions from the movie. Luck I did as I was told from others who had watched the trailers, they were the key scenes from each of the action sequences.

Even without watching any of the trailers for the movie, I was not impress by this movie. The dialogue of the Autobots twins were hard to understand. Not sure why the directors chose to use an US ghetto accent.

If it was not for Megan Fox and Isabel LucasShia LaBeouf would have bombed. LaBeouf keeps playing a character where he's just too lucky to have what he has. He did in Transformers, then in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as young Jones, again in Eagle Eye as the chosen one.

At times the transformers are transforming so fast the audience start to loose track of who are the good guys (Autobots) and who are the bad guys (Decepticon).

The special effects were good and some what believable, but just with good special effect is not enough, as a sequel it did not disappoint, since it was not better than the original. The screen writers even left room for another sequel, but I hope they don't.
