12.07.09Netflix It's pretty amazing how much I didn't like this movie. I figured there would at least be some decent action or something, but it really fell flat on all levels. After figuring the first film was made for TVs due to how close the camera was to everything, I was still surprised to not be able to tell what was going on some of the time. The truth for me is that these transformers designs are just too complicated. I can barely differentiate a face from a foot, an arm from a torso. It'd be great for a comic but when they're moving I just can't tell what's what. The old cartoons (and toys) were so much simpler... I couldn't even tell which one was megatron. So since I couldn't tell who was who, watching what was happening didn't mean much to me.

Then all the humans. they suck. The story, whatever... all the elements I didn't expect to like did not surprise me. I'm just disappointed that the action didn't work either. Michael Bay's really in a slump I think... The Rock and Armageddon were total hamfests as well, but at least they got some adrenaline pumping. Maybe Bad Boys 3 will return him to the realm of relevance.
