Transformers 2: A teenager’s wet dream

July 4, 2009

Hot chick. Check.
Two hot chicks fighting over you. Check.
A sports car your friends would die for. Check.
Burn down half your house and your parents shrug it off. Check.
A parent that gets high on drugs in front of your classmates. Check.
A geeky roommate who’s really a hotshot computer wizard. Check.
Trump your professor in front of the class. Check.
Have your favorite toys come to life. Check.
Have the US Marines watch out for your ass. Check.
Save the world before bedtime. Check.
And have your parents, girlfriend and fave toys cry over you while you do it. Check.

I went to see the T2: Revenge of the Fallen yesterday and if it wasn’t for the awesome CG and their use of real helicopters, and I mean US Army issue Blackhawks not those washed out Vietnam-war era Hueys or Bells that you see in B movies, I would have classified this movie as another low-IQ summer flick.

Everything, and I mean everything about this movie panders to the American 19 year old. There are no fat chicks in this fantasy, no whiny parents that cramp your style, nothing lame. You get to diss your professor in front of a hundred students, tear up the place without without getting into trouble, and rock to Linkin Park and Green Day playing in the background. Best of all you get to play with your toys all day.

Not that I’m complaining. I actually found the movie fun to watch. Hate the twins though, which I think is the equivalent of Star Wars’ Jar Jar Binks, not to mention a pathetic attempt at African American stereotyping. I hope they lose ’em in the next sequel. The shootout at the wadi (Egyptian village) was way too long drawn but overall I thought there was more to like than dislike about this show.

Damn, my mom’s coming up today to do a spot check on me. House is a mess. I gotta get cracking.

    watched this on Saturday. for me, the first one is better. this movie doesn’t have a proper story and the scripts sux. some of the scenes also don make sense. it’s like putting them there for the sake of putting them.

    u miss out one thing – able to call upon Pentagon’s top secret ultimate weapon w/o proper identity verification and shooting down one of the wonders of the world without second thought. πŸ˜›

    megan fox is just eye candy. decoration. =_= donno hre role in there.

    and there are just too many robots. they shld limit or at least “color code” the bad guys from the good guys.

    having said that, i feel that the CGI is superb here. jz that…er….its more meant for the fan boys.

    hopefully next one will have proper character development.

    and they should really remove the hot-chick-turn-alien thing. quite creepy.

    Haha, that alien chick… pretty awesome long tongue eh. πŸ˜€

    Yeah the ability to call in the pentagon to shoot a rail gun at foreign target or to just barge into foreign territory and parachute in without being challenged…sweet. That’s what teenage fantasies are made up of.

    But then, logical movies are so boring… πŸ˜€

    Well, sometimes, the script writer doesn’t have to justify for everything…but just make sure it makes sense a little. -_-

    Yeah, that’s what I tell myself when I watch Spongebob. πŸ˜€
