It is official. I have a new favorite movie. Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen was THE BEST movie that I have EVER seen. I’m not kidding. I’ve seen close to 3,000 movies in my lifetime, and this is hands down the best movie. Period.
Oh, there are people who will say otherwise. There were people who hated the first Transformers movie also. But they are wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. This movie absolutely freaking rocks!
From the moment it starts to the moment it finishes, you are immersed in almost nonstop action. The first movie had maybe a dozen different Transformers. This one has like 50. All the favorites are back, from Optimus Prime and Bumblebee to Starscream and Megatron. Pretty much every character from the first movie makes a comeback, but joined with a whole host of compatriots.
My one beef with the first Transformers movie was the Sector 7 dork, and although he made a reappearance, he wasn’t as bad this time around. There was plenty of humor, perhaps more than in the first movie. The action sequences were phenomenal, some of the very best in history. The CGI was flawless. The story was even interesting.
I literally sat on the edge of my seat the whole time, eagerly anticipating the next bit of Michael Bay wizardry. I mean, seriously, watching this was almost enough to make me want to join the military. Almost…
To anyone looking to see an incredible movie, I recommend Transformers 2 without hesitation. I’m so going back tomorrow to see it again 🙂 Watch the trailer below:
