Director: Michael Bay
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Ramon Rodriguez
Even for a Michael Bay movie, Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is obnoxiously loud and downright soulless.
And to think, the first Transformers blockbuster showed how much fun one of the special effects-obsessed director's flicks could be; with its Spielbergian story about a kid and his otherworldly friend and its truly impressive CGI creations, 2007's Transformers had a tad more going for it than just nostalgia for those old Hasbro toys.
With Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, though, Bay delivered an orgy of mindless action and ignorant characterization, the latter distinction most evident in two caricature robots that might as well have been named Step and Fetchit. And just like that, the Michael Bay we all know and love to hate was back in effect.
