    Basically the exact opposite of what that other "Moviehole" guy said.

    All you can do is go with your gut and decide whether to see the movie on your own initiative. As such, I'M DEFINITELY GOIN'!!

    unfortunately, despite it being a good review, credibility is lost when he misspells Transformers in the review. no spellcheck FTL

    His credibility isn't that bad. He gave Evan Almight a C, which wasn't all that good a movie.

    B+? Not all that great, but at least this review was far more mature and more professionally written than the other "negative review", or should I say "fanboi rant".

    These reviews really make me want to see the movie, I'm not reading the reviews though i'm just glad that there is a bunch of new really good reviews.

    B+ is pretty damn good for a "mindless action movie".

    Fair do's though: The reviewer is apparently Italian and not writing in his first language.

    The difference is that Emanuel Levy is an actual film critic (who obviously has other critics also write for his site), whereas Moviehole is the Australian equivalent to AICN.

    The first thing I did was click the links to his other reviews to see what their grades were. I thought it was a very keen write-up, though I'll digress about his mention of the military in the film.

    Hey! You don't have to convince me which of the two reviews has more credibility (you only have to read them for that!), but I've seen some TF fans saying they'll "wait for the reviews before deciding to see it".
    If said reviews are going to be such polar opposites, I have to wonder how they'll make their minds up.

    Not sure I'd compare Moviehole to AICN but Moviehole reviews are like a weird Bizarro world type stuff. Definitely not the same tastes as many (most?) people.
