I was surprised to find this to be so easy to like. Sure, it's not a "high-concept" action movie, but it provides a good time. The characters are likable enough to spend 2 hours with, and Shia LeBeouf works well in his CGI surroundings. This is a better-than-average Michael Bay movie. (I give it 2 paws, since I can't give it 2 1/2, and three seems borderline.)
Most of action and a bit less of the charm of the original are on display here. You get more or less what was advertised: a loud, CGI-heavy, hit-or-miss humor-filled action movie. It's fun, but less so than the first.
Not good by any standard, but watchable.

The entire movie revolves around giant CGI robots fighting each other--nothing else. And for providing these fun, entertaining robot fights, I give it some credit. The movie doesn't deserve anything more, however, for the mediocrity that surrounds the lame acting and idiotic script (which, for the most part, lacks characterization and intelligent dialogue).
So if you're looking for a dumb, loud popcorn movie, look no further than Transformers. If you're in the mood for something a little classier, skip it. That's all there is to it.
I didnt feel like I was watching the sequal to the movie I loved. I was a little dissapointed. I kind of felt like I was watching a different movie all together than what I expected. Besides the throw back I thought the action was breathtaking and Shia was amazing but I was dissapointed in all the perverted material. I was set agast at all the bad humor.
there is only one word for this movie, fantastic. way better than the first and just as humorous. great action good cast and awesome special effects. if you havent seen it yet, your missing one of the summers and the years biggest and best movies.
Brilliant!! I have seen this movie atleast 20 times and each time there is something new that i am awed about. The concept and the transformations are just out of this world. Amazing level of detail taken care of.
