Film Review: Transformers 2

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, sees the return of Shia LeBeouf, Megan Fox and, of course, Optimus Prime, Megatron (yes, Megatron) and the autobots. I’m not going to run through the plot, because you can find out that information somewhere else, however, what I will tell you is that this is a must see.

The standard was set high for the first film, and the second one did not disappoint. Full of high-octane action and enough CGI to paint the town red, Transformers 2 ups the anti by including more robots, more fight scenes, more drama, and more bits of Megan Fox to drool over admire. The comedy also has stepped up a gear; at one point I was laughing out loud with tears in my eyes. Watch out for the twin autobots, as their comedic value is too much.

Here’s a tip: Don’t sit near the front. Most of the action just turns into a blur of colour. And go to the toilet beforehand, because the film is nearly three hours long.
