Transformers 2 sucks

I consider myself a person who likes to watch commercial blockbusters more than literary and artistic films. I can simply enjoy the stimulation of the audio-visual senses regardless of the connotations and techniques. That’s why I am willing to go all the way to the film museum, which specializes in IMAX giants. In the curtain hall, the scene of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) is held. Before watching it, I already knew that this year's top-grossing blockbuster has only received 37 points from the mainstream media in North America, setting the largest gap between media public opinion and box office revenue in the past two years. I'm not too impressed, I always feel that the eyes of professional film critics in the media are quite far from ordinary audiences like myself. But after reading it, I want to say that if I were to rate it, I would have given 37 points too much.

First of all, I would like to praise the three screenwriters of this film. They completely broke through the most common criticism of the plot of commercial action blockbusters, that is, the content is empty, the plot is similar, and the lack of depth. A new realm of mental retardation and boredom to heinous levels. Driven by the absurdity and errors of the plot in every chapter, more than 80% of the human characters in the whole film look like they have slipped out of a mental hospital (some robot characters are also perverted, only the few American soldiers and The motorcycle hottie's reaction seems relatively normal). And the love, flesh and blood, brotherhood, and patriotism performed by such a large group of freaks are not only not touching, but they look funny, pretentious, and hypocritical, which makes me nauseous. I don't know if the producers spent all their money on special effects, and they really didn't have the money to hire a decent professional screenwriter. Of course, I have to admit that there are still two or three episodes that amused me, such as the mentally retarded "computer prodigy" who stunned himself, and the military executive sent by Washington before he jumped out of the plane. Pull the parachute up.

Director Michael Bay has completely lived up to the critics' consistent bad comments on his directing ability, and resolutely implemented his directing style of only throwing fireworks, cannonballs and cars, and plotting without rules. Since he can only pat a group of robots fighting in groups with his ability, why not make it simple and pure? There are so many unnecessary and inexplicable plots in the non-fortress, which just made the whole film 157 minutes long. If it is shortened to 90 minutes, it will not only make the film look more compact, but also increase the number of screenings and earn more ticket money. Even if Michael doesn’t understand this, can’t the producer Paramount also understand it? And even the basic job of robot fighting, Michael didn't do it well. On the big screen, all kinds of machinery and metal materials are seen flying up and down, but the role of the robot is not clear. The most important point of the concept of "Transformers" - the deformation process of the robot is still so unclear Unclear, the important highlight of the integration of Optimus Prime and Tianhuo was also mentioned in one stroke.

As for Mr. Spielberg, who serves as the producer, the role of the best director of the two Oscars who has made countless excellent films is completely invisible. It seems to indirectly indicate that the failure of "Indiana Jones 4" that he personally directed last year was not accidental.

Another major factor that caused my strong distaste was the complete tampering of the robot image in this film. Almost all Decepticons look either reptiles or aliens, Skyfire looks like a Predator, and Fallen King and other King Kong veterans seem to have been adapted from aliens from other Hollywood blockbusters. This kind of random adaptation without respect or sincerity is really unacceptable to me, who has deep feelings for the original TV comics. As for that Spice Girl, oh my God, no matter the original or the movie, where did it explain where the robot got the ability to transform into flesh and blood? Mr. Michael Bay, do you think you are shooting Terminator or X-Man? !

  • Galloway: Now, what do we know so far? We know that the enemy leader - classified NBE-1, aka Megatron - is rusting in peace at the bottom of the Laurentian Abyss, surrounded by sophisticated detection nets AND full-time submarine surveillance. We also know that the only remaining piece of your alien All Spark is locked in an electromagnetic vault, here on one of the most secure naval bases in the world...

    Soundwave: Decepticons: we have located the shard.
