The Critical Skewering Of The “Transformers” Sequel
The reviews are coming for “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and it has collectively become a cinematic beatdown from the big time critics. The reviews are so bad that it has made me consider not seeing this movie, which isn’t good for Michael Bay since I am right in this movie’s wheelhouse. I’m a 32-year old male that grew up obsessing over Transformers toys, comics, and that stupid cartoon.
Right now, the movie is at a 24% Cream of the Crop rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you need a chuckle or two, read a few of these reviews. Here is my favorite description of the movie so far, from the great Roger Ebert:
If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination.
