Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen
June 24, 2009 - Matt Phillips
Here is a short description of the movie, if you don't want to know before you see it then skip the following paragraph.
The movie picks up where the first left off, opening with the Autobots in league with a secret arm of the military searching out and destroying hidden Decepticons whose purpose on earth is still not fully known. The action starts right away and the Autobots learn of the ominous threat of The Fallen. The story then shifts to Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) as he prepares to go off to college. After finding a shard of the Allspark in his clothes, he once again becomes a target of the Decepticons. At college he discovers his new roommate is obsessed with conspiracy theories about the transformers, but that is the least of his problems when the Decepticons attack. The President decides that the Autobots do more harm than good and dissolves their alliance, making the job of finding out what the Fallen is much harder. The Fallen, a godlike transformer, older and more powerful than Megatron, threatens to destroy the sun and it's up to the Autobots and Sam to stop him.
There is tons of action, explosions and no holds barred robot carnage in this movie. The storyline is good, if not a little predictable. Transformers 2 has more slapstick comedy than its predecessor. Many new transformers are added to the roster including Arcee and Soundwave, and most of the original cast returned.
I enjoyed this movie immensely; however, it is not quite as good as the first Transformers movie. I spent much of the time thinking Sam is a selfish jerk, but he does eventually show his better self. The movie is worth the admission. I saw it in Columbiana where it is only $7, good deal!
