    Right, but understand this is TRANSFORMERS. It's a movie based off of a comic book/cartoon for children. Of course it's going to have some lame humor because that's who a big target audience is. Children.
    I agree some of the jokes and comedy were a bit lame, but I think the action sequences and overall kick-ass look of the TRANSFORMERS was more than enough to make up for the silly jokes.

    True, but I definitely don't remember the cartoon having so much POS comedy in it. Either way, the comedy hurts the film

    haven't seen it yet, but I hear a lot of this comedy is sex and drug related. Not really stuff geared for the action figure loving kiddies.

    Not surprised it brought in so much money, it's summer and stuff like this is critic proof.

    Yep.

    This is one aspect that is noticeably different but I think it worked better for the movie than it did the first time around but without the wool being pulled over. Its definitely toilet humor at best.

    Right there is more adult oriented humor this time. But the times are changing. What was funny to kids 20 years ago isn't funny today. Sex and drugs, now that's funny to kids.

    That will always be funny to teenagers, but it's not really appropriate for the heavily marketed young kids ordering the happy meals with transformer 2 toys.

    Yeah I would concur with that.

    Even though I thought it was well placed. It did seem out of place when compared to what was going on in the first.

    I had my problems with the movie. Ravage was cool, but the fact he puked out that paper thin one was retarded. Skids and Mudflap while annoying did have some funny parts. But it annoyed me that they took these known transformers, threw them in the background with bit parts so these 2 could have a major part in the film, hell these guys were made up. Devestator was cool, I liked him. Soundwave was awesome as well.

    The decepticon that turned into a human was retarded I thought. And people go on about the humor hurting the movie. I remember in the old cartoon Spike teaching optimus prime to play basketball, the lame humor was there back then too. you just dont notice it when your 7. And I did feel like the CGI was worse this time around, sometimes when the transformers are moving to fast u can't tell whats going on and with Sstarscream and Megatron? I was happy to see starscream having a bigger role, but sometimes when it was just the 2 of them talking if it wasnt for the voices being different you couldn't tell who was who. . Besides people go on about Skidz and Mudflap being racist, the original Jazz in the cartoon wasn't any less racist lemme tell you. So yes there were many annoying things about the movie but in the end I was still entertained. Bumblebee got to kick a lot more ass which was great to me cuz he was always my fave. I just hope they bring in some grimlock next time.

    I never bothered to touch this film. I loved the 80s cartoon film too much, and Michael Bay pissed all over my childhood. Yeah, I know that's what any fan of Transformers would say, but I rather watch a film based on these characters if there was a WAY better Cameron-IQ branded on it. When I saw the first film, I was devastated and couldn't believe I threw away $9 for a crappy lame-ass humor, shitball characters, and an asswipe story that had nothing to do with the Transformers themselves.

    I'll wait and see it on HBO when it comes out and see how bad it's gotten. The bad reviews for it, if you actually read it you could understand and learn a little from what they had to say about the film, don't you think they were a little right?

    Not sure what that means, but I guess your saying you wish it was directed by someone like James Cameron, who makes big popcorn movies, yet are still very character driven and have intelligence...

    Something based on dolls doesn't really deserve that kind of treatment.

    They brought Soundwave into the series without fucking it up. They didn't dumb him down, change his role, or anything. Still the badass recon and communcations officer with sidekicks. If I knew nothing else about this movie, that alone would carry it in my eyes.

    One thing that did bug me though is they seem to drop the ball on the names. Yeah, you can look at the toys or read certain websites and find all the names, but in the movie they didn't say the names for most of the new transformers. First movie, everyone was named... even if it was just a "Barricade acknowledged" subtitle bit during communications. This one, nope.

    Our immortality is found in the words and actions of our children.

    You see relatives at holidays, weddings, and funerals, but family is always with you.

    Do not steal, rape, or murder. Everything else is fair game.

    Just got back from it. Plot was muddled and stupid, but it was still entertaining escapist fun. What'd you'd expect for something based on toys.
