    Head over to IGN.com for a quick review of the movie. 3 out of 5 stars, no spoilers in the review.

    It seems that his only issue with the film is that he didn't get enough rest the night before.

    With the prices of movie tickets today, the longer the movie the better

    It's an IGN review, so whatever they give it, it's bound to actually deserve 1-2 more stars.

    Meh also. IGN doesn't know jack shit in the first place. Frigging opposite and so god damn picky in all their reviews of games or movies.

    Thestuff he says that is negative is cleary from his lack of intelligence. I'm cool with the review......

    this is exactly the kind of review I was looking forward to reading. Overall the reviewer says that it was a long loud robot rumble fest which is exactly what I asked for

    Can't freaking wait!!! We wanted more, we got more.......but this guy is actually saying less is more and this is too much.

    His only problem is that it's too long. I doubt many people will care about that - more time spent to watch more robot fighting. He doesn't seem to list any, or many large, negatives about the movie, which is a good first sign.

    Was my thread not good enough then?:tongue: 

    A good review but a bit of a strange one for me, it reads like a 4 out of 5 review but his negatives do not warrant a 3 out of 5 score.

    "Many found the robot-on-robot fighting in T1 over-edited and made even more confusing because they took place in unclear backgrounds (i.e. a smashed-up downtown LA) - often you couldn't even tell which Transformer was fighting which."

    Wait what? Couldn't they tell that it was Jazz, Ironhide and Ratchet vs Brawl then Autobots (excluding BB) vs Megatron then Bumblebee vs Brawl then Optimus vs Megatron? It may read as confusing but when you watch it you can see who's fighting who.

    Not upon first viewing one couldn't. Or even second viewing for that matter. Many of those who knew nothing about TF going into the first movie had trouble following who was fighting whom. Indeed, I know the characters rather well and even I had trouble following it at first. It sounds like Bay addressed that valid qualm in TF2.

    Regarding the review, it's a fair one. I thought TF1's run-time was just right. Many others, including Orci, thought it was too long. In the end, it all comes down to what one can tolerate and for how long. If length is the reviewers' main gripe, then it sounds like Bay et al may have hit another home run.

    Too long? Watch Titanic again then talk to me about a movie being "too long".
