Revenge Of The Fallen
Now, I will rarely say this about any movie only after seeing it once, but I think this movie has proven to me what it is: The absolute worst movie ever made. I'm serious. There is absolutely nothing good about this movie. All the characters are flat and non-existent, the plot makes no sense, and the actors suck at their jobs. Too many humans, NOT ENOUGH TRANSFORMERS. These facts are nearly universally agreed upon. Now, many people will argue to me "its not about that, its about the action and the CGI". Well, in my opinion, the CGI is the worst part. The first Transformers movie's CGI was good, but these effects are just horrible. First of all, I couldn't even tell which robot was which, considering everyone but Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee all had the exact same color, the whole dull, gun metal grey color. This, along with the fact that all the robots look horribly ugly (they are just a big huge mash of like wires, gears, guns, etc.) made all the action scenes impossible to decipher. Plainly put: This movie looks like shit. The movie is also horribly long, being 2 and a half hours. There is about 20 minutes of horrible undecipherable fighting, and about 2 hours of horribly unfunny (and racist) comic relief characters. There is exactly ten minutes devoted to the actual plot, which makes no sense what so ever (seriously, why do we even need those damn Transformers? The US military is so kickass in this movie they look like they can handle everything by themselves). Bottom line: This movie is absolutely horrible. I have no idea how this made hundreds of millions of dollars, or why so many people liked it. I am deeply fearing that humans are becoming stupider and stupider, due to the fact that they actually saw this movie. The plot of Idiocracy seems to be coming true at this point.

I actually found Revenge of the Fallen marginally more enjoyable than the first one. Not saying I liked it, just saying I really really disliked the first. Between watching random people wander around without a hint of autobots or decepticons for the majority of the film and then when the robots were on-screen the jittery camera and shiny CGI the fight scenes are a mess. I've seen the first film three times and I still have no idea what's happening in, say, the freeway fights because the bots jumble together into a shiny, blurry metallic mess on the screen.
