Does Megan Fox's Disappointing Toga Foreshadow Something Bad?

If you go purely on reviews, then you’ll probably never watch “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” but that’s the thing about modern-day action flicks: They aren’t supposed to be great movies.

Regardless, just for cheap giggles, let’s hit a few excerpts from movie reviews floating around:

THE GOOD
Fox’s cleavage is the only camera object that catches Bay’s attention for more than a millisecond. (Chicago Tribune)

Exhilarating or excruciating, depending on your point of view. (LA Times)

It is unapologetic about delivering what it promises. Bigger battles. Massive explosions. Megan Fox looking hot. (Premiere)

The sequence serves no real purpose beyond dazzle for dazzle’s sake, but when you’re watching it, that’s purpose enough. (Entertainment Weekly)

THE BAD/UGLY
This Transformers is a pile of glittering junk. (WSJ)

Dazzles the eye, numbs the mind and may cause deafness in some cases. Did I mention to bring along some Excedrin? (NY Post)

Exhilarating or excruciating, depending on your point of view. (LA Times)

2 1/2 hours of tumescence disguised as a motion picture. (Boston Globe)

CONCLUSION
So yeah, if you love Megan Fox & enjoy larger-than-life action movies w/ no definite plot, this movie is made for you!

I'm glad everyone agrees with me. This movie was garbage. If i had to chance to get Bay's movie budget i swear i could have made this epic.

Anyways, did anyone else get a claps towards the end of the movie and everyone cheering best movie ever?

newsflash: IT'S TRANSFORMERS! nerds/dorks/losers like myself only want to see the DNA based robots of your boyhoods blow the everything shit out of everything on the screen. its not shia. its not megan. its not oscar worthy storyline. TRANSFORMERS.....EXPLOSIONS.....LOUD NOISES! i don't care which "actress" is in the movie. i would have much rather them take megan's check and use the millions to CGI a badass the likes of ASTROTRAIN, shockwave, grimlock, etc into the RISE OF THE FALLEN. one.

Megan Fox is collosally fucking dumb. I can't stand to watch her red carpet interviews.....it's so uncomfortable how much she runs off at the mouth saying the most fucked up stupid shit. Most of it is just her TRYING TOO HARD to be edgy and different. FAIL my dear.

But many sex symbols of present and past aren't all that bright.

The Daily Mail wrote an opinion piece calling her "the dumbest celebrity ever."

In light of the comments she's made to the press, I don't disagree.

My boyfriend was trying to drag me along to this monstrosity last night. Tbh, id rather spend 2 and a half hours watching paint dry than seeing Shia doing his same old tired even stevens impression, megan running around with her mouth open looking 'hot', and mindless explosions every two seconds coupled with a paper thin plot, so i made my excuses and kindly backed out. I'll be waiting for the dvd...

horrible...seriously, this movie is a joke....a heaping maelstrom of malignant metal. but if you enjoy extranneous and gratuitous stimulation and contrived entertainment used in order to obviously distract from the lack of plot...then you'll probably love it! i like transformers conceptually and think it had potential to be a good movie but michael bay totally fucked it...and yes megan looked delicious in it.

No where near as good as the first one; an hour too long for a film with no discernible plot and annyoing as fuck twin robots with pseudo-ghetto voices being the main irritants.

On the other hand gratuitous slow motion megan fox in a flimsy top is always welcome and there are some awesome effects, but after two hours of it your eyeballs feel like they've been raped.

Just got back from the film (it's out in Australia) even though I knew it wasn't going to be very good it was the first event film of the summer so to speak and I was hypnotized by the hype. I do enjoyed a packed out cinema though.

The film isn't that great. 2 1/2 hours of overload, and because there's not much story I didn't really feel much empathy for what was happening. It does have it's moments though where it's pretty cool for a Michael Bay film

The good - Megan Fox is hot in it. And believe it or not actually has some screen presence beyond her looks (IMO). Shia Lebouf also shows a bit of potential (although I know many will disagree with me).

The Bad: One robot has wrecking balls for testicals which was lame. And there are these two obviously ghetto black robots, which is pretty racist. It's robot blackface and I NEVER normally cry racism but this was so lame I couldn't help but feel turned off by it. The worst part is I read an interview with Michael Bay where he is proud of those characters and he created them. It explains alot.

I'm out.
