I’ll start this review out by saying that I didn’t care for Transformers 1. Shia and Megan got on my nerves bad throughout the first movie. I also wasn’t into the Transformers as a kid. I remember them, but they weren’t ‘monster’ enough for me. *g* So with those things in mind, we went to see Transformers 2. Everything in it was bigger, badder, and more ‘explody’…AND I really enjoyed it. They brought back the funniest thing from the first movie (ie Shia’s parents) and gave them bigger parts. The one liners were flying along with robot body parts. Shia’s character had grown up quite a bit from the first film and it made a huge difference for me as a viewer. This movie still has everything you liked about the first film–massive robot fights, Megan Fox stripping her clothes off and baby talking, and Bumble Bee, but the cast has grown more comfortable with each other. And it truly shows. This film runs smoothly for a demolition movie. I guess what I’m saying is if you like BIG, DUMB, ACTION FILMS, then you’ll LOVE Transformers 2. 🙂 I plan to see it again.
