Had a chance to watch this last night at a IMAX theatre. You can’t watch Transformers at a regular theatre, IMAX will give you the full effect of a bigger and clearer screen, as well as seat rumbling sound. Waited in line for 2 hours at the last showing, making sure I get a good seat. In we go and I just couldn’t wait to watch this movie, and to see Megan Fox. I’m a big fan of hers. She’s smoking HOT!
As you know, the same characters are back. Sam Witwicky (Shia LeBeouf) has finished high school and is ready to head off to college where he’s going to dorm. Mom is crying and very saden that her son is leaving. For some reason his mom seems to be more ditsy in this film. Sam is also leaving his ridiculously hot girlfriend back home Mikaela (Megan Fox). Sam also left behind his guardian angel Bumblebee, he wanted to live his life without having robots in his life. He just wanted to be a normal kid and let the Autobots do their things with the feds. Soon did Sam know that Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) will need his help as Sam will need Optimus Prime’s help. So it goes out with Sam doing his college thing and he meets this very aggressive and also hot girl Alice (Isabel Lucas). I swear Sam gets all the hot girls. But then finds she’s more then just a girl. Danger is after Sam so Mikaela flies over to help him. The adventure goes on as Sam learns his role to save Earth. Megatron returns to help bring his leader back, The Fallen. Theres an all out war with the Decepticon and Autobots that takes place in Egypt. U.S. forces joins to help the Autobots as well. I’m not going into any more details for those who haven’t watched it.
This movie had a lot more action compared to the first. Some people said they like the first Transformers more then this. I actually like this one more because there is a lot more action. Twice as much compared to the first one. Also they showed a lot more of Megan Fox, little too much with close ups, her sexy scene when she first comes on the movie, and her running. But I’m not complaining. Some people want to see more story and less robots fighting each other, but I’m not one of them. The fight and action scenes are great and the sound effects are amazing. When a robot fell to the ground, you can feel it. Some dissapointments I had are the robots from the Decepticons. Sometimes I don’t know who is who, not sure who is Megatron when he’s standing around fighting with his buddies. And some robots looks more like monsters. Also many of the cars used are concept cars from chevy (like the Corvette Concept). I don’t want to see concept cars, I want to see real cars of today. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to see how cool these cars are, but we only see it in the movies. I mean we might see these cars in the future like the 2010 Camaro (Bumblebee). But we already knew that car was going to come for sure and it did. There’s also a lot more funny scenes as well, Skids (Tom Kenny) and Mudflap (Reno Wilson) are twin robots from a Chevy concept cars. They are pretty hilarous, but a little over board with their jokes. So all in all, a movie worth watching and worth the extra dollars to enjoy it more at an IMAX theatre. Michael Bay gave us what we wanted in a Transformer movie, more action and more of Megan Fox.
