Yesterday was Manila Day, so we didn’t have work. It was a welcome reprieve from the hectic workweek, and it was right in the middle of it too.
Drew and I watched “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” early in the morning (the drawbacks of night shift haha, or is it advantage? We had our pick of the theaters and there were no lines). Verdict? Well, it wasn’t bad for me, but it wasn’t good either. If last year I was raving about it, now… I’d say it was more of a so-so movie, with a storyline that makes sense — but it was the little things in between that make you go “Huh?”
I’m not even sure if everything was resolved, and I don’t even want to think about it. Granted there were plenty of funny scenes, and the action wasn’t something you could complain about much (Drew called the fight scenes “robot ballet”), but somehow the entire movie was missing something.
I had a hard time distinguishing the the Autobots and Decepticons in most of the fight scenes, despite the color in most of the former. I feel like the Autobots were underplayed in the movie, focusing mostly on Prime and Sam… and Mikaela haha.
Overall, I’d watch it again, but it’ll get old really fast. I wouldn’t even recommend you let your kid watch it. They’d be better off watching the original cartoons (which always springs to mind every time Optimus speaks).
