| Amazing!! But not quite perfect.
I was more excited to see this film than any other. I finally got to see it at the cinema I manage last night. Overall I can say it was fantastic, I came out with that buzz that I felt after watching the 1st film. The film quickly got started and from there it never really let up, the action was constant with plenty of humour along the way. The style was very much the same as the 1st film just with more of it.

The introduction of new characters brought new elements to the action however there was a lot more potential in this area I feel. The development of the relationship between the leads in this film reminded me very much of Armageddon, it made me actually believe that they were falling in love; no mean feat when Megan Fox's character is paper thin.

Theis film wasn't perfect by any means, the story could have been developed much more and there are things which go unanswered. Normally this would drive me mad but this time didn't really bother me. Lets face it, the 1st film didn't exactly have a flawless storyline, thats not what its about. The point of the film was Michael Bay blowing sh*t up, which as expected was done well and often.

Overall I loved this film, normally it wouldn't come close to a 9 but it has that incredible feel good effect present in the 1st. I came out smiling and wanting more, and that it what Michael Bay and Transformers are designed for.

Trivia

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman originally passed on this film, due to scheduling conflicts with other films, but the studios returned to them after looking through the other writers' scripts and finding them unsatisfactory. However, they had only three weeks to write the script, due to the 2007 Writer's Guild of America strike. Michael Bay and Shia LaBeouf expressed disappointment with the film, due to the script's rushed treatment.


Quotes

Optimus Prime: Earth, birthplace of the human race. A species much like our own, capable of great compassion and great violence. For in our quest to protect the humans, a deeper revelation dawns: our worlds have met before...


Goofs

NEST is actually part of the US Department of Energy rather than Defense, as the acronym stands for "Nuclear Emergency Support Team." However it's entirely possible for two groups in two different agencies to share an acronym, especially if one of them is secret. Given that the Transformers are radioactive, making the public confuse their unit with the Nuclear Emergency Support Team would work to their advantage in keeping them secret.


Crazy Credits

The DreamWorks and Paramount logos are accompanied by a series of robotic sounds.


Alternate Versions

The IMAX version of the film, released on DVD and Blu-ray as a "Big Screen Edition" exclusively at Wal-Mart, features at least an additional minute of footage. During the film, the screen resolution and aspect ratio occasionally changes to the larger (70mm) IMAX format for select shots (jumping back and forth between this and the standard aspect ratio in the middle of a scene). The scenes include a slightly extended version of the fight in the forest, with more shots of Decepticons exchanging fisticuffs with Optimus Prime, Sam reacting, etc. Two more sequences consist of footage of Devastator during his transformation in the desert and various assaults on the pyramid. Much of the IMAX footage consists of alternate takes as well.
