Yeah, the Transformers movie sucked

I was at Fry's and they had Transformers (the live action movie) showing on DVD on a theater setup. I started watching from the point where Sam & co. enters Hoover Dam. While watching it, the numerous ridiculous things about the film came flying back in my face especially after they entered the city for the last battle. The army guys taking the AllSpark into the city and NOT GETTING THE CIVILIANS EVACUATED until way after the fighting has started. The guys playing sitting duck for Starscream to blast their asses instead of running for cover. Sam for some reason keeps making damaged Bumblebee crawl around after him instead of standing still so he can give him the Allspark. Sam running to the tower on foot instead of GETTING A CAR AND DRIVING THERE. The numerous "nice shot taken just because it looks nice" moments. I couldn't stand it anymore and moved on with my shopping without watching it to the end.

PS: One more thing that annoyed me about the movie: I'm not a pro-life or anything but they had a scene where they gave life to a Nokia Transformer and then killed it. I mean sure it was kinda dangerous to let it live but they could have at least tried to communicate with it or tried some kind of peaceful resolution instead of just zapping it dead. What bothered me even more was that nobody batted an eye when it got killed.

Anyways, for all the reasons above, if Revenge of the Fallen is anything like the dreck that was the first movie, it definitely won't be anywhere near as good as Star Trek. Nevertheless, I'll still catch it in the theaters so I can see the giant robots and cool effects on the big screen.

PPS: Yeah the title is in reference to Bay's first TF movie. So sue me. :p
