    I just came back from seeing it a second time. I went back to actually pay attention to the story since my first viewing was all hyped full. My only rant is that there were kids there, a lot and the most annoying sat in my row. A little old lady with all boys ranging from 4-10.

    I got what I came to the movie for, to hear any dialogue I missed last night, pay attention to the story, but those kids got ANNOYING fast.

    I went mid afternoon because I thought most adults worked, even in the summer and kids wouldn't be there as much, I was wrong.

    I will see it again before July is over lol...

    They aren't racist, they are there for comic relief.

    They are twins and they have goofy "ears" and buck teeth, one even has a gold tooth.

    They talk in hip hop slang and are depicted as stupid.

    Decided to check it out tonight.

    While I thought it was better overall than the original which I thought was fun in itself. I felt the pacing wasn't nearly as top notch and nonstop as the original was.

    He's in the movie but his role is pretty minimal.

    EDIT: Although I must say I enjoyed the menacing voice.


    Spoiler...
    He's more or less a coordinator for the various Decepticon attacks in the movie.

    Just got back from seeing it.... and I wasn't impressed at all. It wasn't a total loss but it wasn't as good as the first.

    I really disliked the over-playing of the humor aspect and the humor that was over-played just wasn't that humorous. The comic relief of the twins was an epic fail in my opinion and completely detracted from the movie overall.

    I usually stay to watch for easter eggs at the end of the credits, but by the time the movie was over, I was more than ready to leave.

    I give this movie no more than a 5/10.

    Mrs. WarBeast absolutely hated it....

    Move was pretty vile too, considering how heavily it is marketed to kids.

    Yeah the humor in this was a bit more vulgar IMO compared to the first but I strangely thought it was executed and meshed better with the other aspects of the movie compared to the first which is why I would tend to still somewhat lean with this being better than the first.

    Many out there point to the Twins as some sort of equivalent of Jar Jar Binks but I think its more of an excuse than anything because IMO their not nearly as prevalent to the story compared to what Binks was in those movies and their humor while painfully stereotyped, I thought was not a big detractor.

    I don't know, I thought it was just a better overall execution of action, drama and comedy compared to the first but I can see why it's being torn apart a bit.

    Transformers scores big coin.

    http://www.imdb.com/news/ns0000003/#ni0854591

    Paramount's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen came within inches -- well, $2.6 million -- of overtaking last year’s The Dark Night as the film with the best 5-day opening of all time. According to studio estimates, it grossed $201.2 million versus $203.8 for Warner Bros.’ Knight. The figure included estimated results for Sunday, therefore final actual ticket sales, to be released on Monday, could push the total past Knight’s record mark. Then again, the Los Angeles Times reported that some competing studios estimated that the total will come in closer to $197-199 million. The newspaper said that Paramount spent about $200 million to produce the film and $150-175 million on worldwide marketing and distribution. IMAX, which has been expanding its giant-screen venues (some critics contend that the size of the newer screens is being misrepresented), contributed $14.4 million to the gross. Although IMAX theaters accounted for less than 4 percent of those screening the movie, they nevertheless produced 7.2 percent of the estimated gross.

    The Transformers sequel performed nearly as impressively overseas, raking in $162 million in 58 countries, including $21.9 million in China, setting a record for an English-language film in that country.

    Few analysts thought the movie would make such an explosive debut, although virtually all expressed certainty that it would dominate the box office. Several predicted that after its sensational opening on Wednesday that it would be brought down by negative word-of-mouth that would echo the caustic reviews of the major critics. That failed to materialize, and instead the film produced solid results each day.

    Warner Bros./New Line attempted to counter-program Knight with the female-oriented My Sister’s Keeper, but showed little success in doing so. The film opened with an estimated $12 million to place third. It had been expected to earn $15-20 million.


    _______________________________________________________ ________________________________

    I thought it would definitely not make that kind of coin but it did.

    The movie has flaws a many but it did deliver the usual popcorn movie experience IMO which is really all I wanted from the flick same as the first. I could care less about the nitpicking stuff that goes into it about Bay and his typical train wreck style or whose favorite child hood Transformer got raped and therefore set off a group of fan boys.

    The best way with this type of stuff is an open mind set. If you completely dislike a guys style of film making beforehand yet force yourself to see it. I can only come to two conclusions. The old train wreck idealism, its a bad thing to watch but you can't help but watch it or you're expecting something different from the norm.

    By the same token these two movies are the only movies I think Bay's bang boom style worked well with to date. If they are to make a 3rd and final one or beyond. I would actually not want a change at the seat because you'll lose some of it.

    I thought the balance in this film was better compared to the first and hopefully if there is to be a 3rd, they continue that balance and even further develop quality fight scenes.

    I really try not to pay too much attention to the reviews and see the movie for myself with an open mind. I loved the first one, and this one is right up there with it. I wouldn't say it surpassed the first, but I wouldn't say it was worst either. As far as sequels go, this movie was a blast. Fun to watch and I look forward to anything else they do with the franchise.

    I didn't really like the first one mostly because of the stupid jokes and comedy bits, and I hear this sequel is worse in that department, so I definitely won't be seeing it in theaters
