Last Friday i went to go see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen with a group of friends.
After reading terrible reviews and hearing mostly tales of disgust for the film, I wasn't expecting much. I was actually hoping it was terrible so I could bash my friend (the Polish one) for once again saying he enjoyed a crappy movie.
Instead I was pleasently surprised when i started to laugh out loud and clap at some of the most ridiculous things my eyes have ever witnessed. The movie of course plays as a 2.5 hour, super expensive, commercial for GM vehicles which kind of annoys me but it is what it is.
Tyrese Gibson in one of his many classic lines says "We shed Blood, Sweat, and Precious Metals Together." I laughed uncontrollably and from this point forward i completely shut my brain off and prepared myself for the remainder of what would surely be a comic feast of the senses.
Honestly I'm not sure what critics expected from a Transformers movie but I personally got exactly what I went for. The special effects were second to none, the women were beautiful, and my candy tasted awesome. The only thing a movie HAS to do is entertain the people who spend a few bucks to go see it. Nothing more, nothing less. Would i put it in my top 10 movies of all time? Absolutely not. Not even close. Would i watch it every single time i flipped to it half way through on FX. You Betcha!
Turn off your Brain, turn on your eyes and ears, and enjoy it for what it is.
