"Autobots, transform... And roll out!" - Optimus Prime

Yesterday was a good day. I joined up with my friends early in the afternoon, had dinner at a good new place in town with great root beer, and went to a viewing of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

I think Michael Bay does a good job with it overall, but it has it fair share of problems. We get our fill of monster robots kicking the trash out of each other and lots of explosions. It’s a Bay film, so what else do you want? My favorite new character is Jetfire and the cantankerous old “man” that he portrays. Too bad he was underutilized. But really, the whole thing has pacing issues, Megan Fox only purpose was just to stand there and look hot, to many “what the Hell?” moments, and the gross over use of bumbling side characters with the only drive is to act as plot devices.

Overall, it’s not a bad movie and I still think worth seeing, but it could’ve been better. 3/5 stars

Always a pleasure, sir. And I agree, Jetfire was my favorite character in that movie, even counting Megan Fox's prancing.

Megan Fox really isn't that hot. There I said it.
