    Personally I liked the movie, but I also see people saying that its the worst movie ever but I see that as false.
    Lets be honest the Transformers movies are not the worst cinema has to offer
    there is a ton of movies out there that are worse more than ROTF
    like:
    Dragonball Evolution
    The Mario bros. movie
    Batman and Robin
    etc.

    and honestly I think that its contradictory that people who think transformers is to sexually explicit but like Watchmen and District 9 which is even more explicit

    like I said it could have been worse

    What about Alexander?

    That was a horrible movie, Revenge of the Fallen could never fall that low.

    Good points!

    While I didn't enjoy Revenge of the Fallen very much yea, I'm just not sure where people get the worst movie ever thing from. Battlefield Earth, the Adventures of Pluto Nash, there are loads of other films that come closer to the title of worst film ever.

    Doesn't really even rank as the worst film this year because we had those horrible Dragonball and Street Fighter movies. Even if you just went with the Tomato Meter the two movies combined still don't equal the Revenge of the Fallen Tomato rating.

    Of course saying it could be worse doesn't really help you feel any better. It's a bit like having a kidney stone and someone telling you well it could be worse your legs could be broke as well. Having functioning legs really doesn't make the kidney stone hurt any less.

    Any fiction could have been worse, but likewise any fiction could have been better. Judgement of any fiction, Revenge of the Fallen included, should be exclusive to that particular fiction. It's okay to have preferences, and to share them & other views when you personally feel it would have been beneficial to a film, but to be critical it tends to be best to judge what's onscreen. And when it comes to negative points, RotF is in no short supply. Plenty of positive ones too, there's a reason its done so well at the cinema, but yeah lots of negative points available to comment on how we feel they could be made better from suggestions of slight alterations to complete nixing.

    Yes, i personally enjoyed very much Bay's Transformers...ROTF...i need to check it out again but, i liked it at the theater.

    We must be thankful Bay's movies didnt end up being complete ape shit such as Mario Bros., Dragonball Evolution, Street Fighter, etc.

    Those arent movies, they are just like throwing a cowpie in the face of their authors...although Akira Toriyama deserves it for having sold his soul by authorizing that horrendous Dragonball movie.

    So, Transformers is like Oscar material compared to those other movies. And in all fairness, there are many things in Transformers that are truly good, such as the Transformers designs, the soundtrack, the voices, oh my god, they speak so cool!, they can be considered good, fun movies.

    DB Evolution, its the same thing if you watch awfully smelly dogcrap for 2 hours straight.
    Mario Bros, just like DB, but maybe with the benefit of wearing a gasmask.
    StreetFighter, total trash, but at least it makes me laugh because its so bad...

    I actually count Transformers films among my favorites. And i am not ashamed xD as i consider them really good.

    I'm sure there are movies far worse than ROTF. The only one that I've seen and absolutely thought it was the worse was the movie adaptation of Eragon.

    Beverly Hills Chihuahua was a terrible movie. I hate the fact that I was forced to go see it in the first place :/

    There's always a zillion other movies that are beyond terrible. But you can't use those to make ROTF a good movie. It may be better than those movies, but why set the bar so low?

    That's like using Danny DeVito to prove how tall you are.

    yep, no doubt could have been much better. but i don't even think it was bad. i can see why people would hate it, but that doesn't make it a bad movie, let alone the worst. some people hate District 9; thought it was one of the worst movies they've ever seen and said they wanted their money back. but that doesn't mean District 9 isn't good.

    What I love even more than people not bothering to actually provide their source is when they're wrong. Let us quote Rolling Stone's review of ROTF:
    Well gee, that isn't what the OP was claiming. Try again.

    I remember there was a Disney movie about superheroes called "Zoom." Horrible.

    Also, wasn't there a Howard the Duck movie? I hear that's one of the absolute worst.

    Of course there are loads of worse movies than ROTF. Whether someone else loves it or hates it doesn't matter, all that matters is your own opinion of a movie
