Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)

Sequel to "Transformers".

I wasn't crazy about the first "Transformers" film and I wasn't crazy about this one either.

Sam, played by Shia LaBeouf, is having visions of an ancient map.  The map leads to an object called the matrix.  The matrix is very powerful and it can be used to destroy the world.  The bad transformers, known as Decipticons, want the matrix to destroy the sun and ultimately take over Earth.  To make sure this doesn't happen, the good transformers, known as Autobots, protect Sam.  During a battle between Autobots and Decipticons, the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, dies.  Sam is now on a mission to find the matrix to bring Optimus back to life and stop the Decipticons from destroying the world.

There is only one good thing about this movie: the special effects.  The effects look great, but I just don't like the look of the transformers much.  Most of the time they just look like a jumbled mess of metal.  It is hard to figure out what is going on.  There is one transformer that transforms into a human.  That was a great character and it was the best part of the movie.  She was actually quite scary.  The only thing that I didn't get was, when did transformers start being able to turn into human clones?  

The script was really bad.  The dialogue was so corny.  I couldn't handle a lot of it.  The script was also very confusing.  It was hard to keep up with what exactly each character's mission was.  It was way too involved.  

The worst thing about the film was Megan Fox.  I can't stand her.  She is one of the worst actresses I have ever seen.  The only reason she gets these roles is because she is hot.  I don't even think she is that beautiful.  She looks more like a cheap hooker than anything else.  She really ruins the film.  It is like they just put her in there to please its horny viewers.  She is not important to the story.

The movie could have been cut down by at least an hour also.  There were way too many battles that I didn't really care about.  It is hard to keep track of who is fighting since all the transformers look pretty much the same.  So much of the movie was just special effects and loud sound effects.  The sound was great, but it was way too loud.  It really started to bug me.

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is not a good movie.  The only reason to see this film is to see the wonderful special effects.  Even with the effects, it is still not worth the price of being bored for 2 and a half hours.
