Transformers: Revenge of the fallen

The biggie this month. Part 2 of the immensely successful and popular Transformers (2007). Directed by Michael Bay, starring the talented Shia LaBeouf and the very attractive Megan Fox and the tough looking Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson, Transformer 2: Revenge of the Fallen rocked the Box office on release and continues to remain at the top.

The other biggest character in this sequel plays the most prominent, visible and noisy part. The character is none other than the US Armed Forces. The US Armed forces is all over this movie starting to end providing you one of the finest on screen displays of combat and weaponry in recent times.

The sequel continues from where part 1 ended. Optimus Prime and his buddies live among the humans with Bumblebee loyally staying in Samuel Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) while Prime and his buddies including some new ones like the Twins who work with Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel) of the US Army in combating all kinds of situations especially when the Decepticons (the bad robot guys for those who have not seen part 1) start making appearances. Some bureaucratic interference and fear of attack brings the story to a stage where Prime and his buddies are parting ways with Lennox. Meanwhile Sam has tried to put his adventures behind him and is moving to college. His attraction to Mikaela (Megan Fox) and his quirky roommate Leo (Ramon Rodriguez) seem to be the new factors in his life.

But all of that changes soon when the fallen (an old Decepticon who mentored Megatron) starts sending his minions to planet earth in search of something. With the AllSpark destroyed in part 1, what may they be after? Thereafter begins a race to find out what they are after and to find it before they do. The film is a bit slow with a lot of long dialogues giving background and history but in the 2nd half takes off into a pulse pounding ride of action. The action is multifold and in typical Michael Bay style, larger than life.

The US Army comes into play and you are treated to some spectacular explosions and some great CGI and robot fights. before I forget, John Turturro returns and is absolutely natural at making you laugh. He and Leo offer you some of the hilarious moments in the fill.

This film is such that you cannot write much about it. You just got to go watch it. You will either like it or not like it. Let me tell you what I liked about the movie-I like that it is based on Robot characters (I have a soft corner for comic tales). I like John Turturro's performance. I like Megan Fox (she's hot !) and I love all the action and explosions !

Is it worth watching ? Well, maybe. For any comic story genre fan, it is a must see.
