    This is the reason why i don't take movie critics seriously. Its like they have a clipboard of flaws to look for then check them off one by one. And look where it says he didn't like the first one of course he's not going to like the second.

    This movie sucks because Megan Fox's lip gloss stays on and her paints stay clean. Fuck it, I'm not going to see it now :lol 

    I get some of the things this guy is saying but honestly, nit picking every little thing is ridiculous. Where did Shia get the extra sock? Who the fuck cares?

    Meh, He said he didn't like the first one.

    Little worried how Mudflap and Skids will be received.

    Bingo I dislike when people go see a movie only to nitpick it everything they see is wrong. Not everything reviewers see as negative is a flaw.

    Wow this is a case where someone is thinking too hard or not enough. Joblow.com can blow me. As if anyone actually GAVE a shit about most the things he points out.

    Yeah, tell that to the two jocks who were doin' the doobie and began to beat the living shit out of eachother at my Christmas Ball last year.

    Pretty much...I hate to use this saying, but 'where there is smoke there must be fire'. I can't wait to see the movie, but every review I've read only describes problems with the film that I knew were already going to be present; bigger explosions with awesome scenes, but little in the way of story and more crude humor.

    Wow... this is just... wow. I don't think I've seen a high profile movie like this get so continually slammed across the entire board since Gigli or Battlefield Earth. This sounds like it'll be the most commercially successful flop ever... which will be an interesting paradox to watch people try to wrap their heads around.

    At least ONE good thing has come from it: the score.

    The problem with the review is the person picks certain aspects that people don't really care about.

    Chances are it's not the greatest film ever made. Most of us get that, but I think some people are just into bashing the hell out of the film because the first tf was such a success. If the film had done horribly and this one came out nobody would give a rats ass about it and you would see likely more honest reviews I think. I think there's just a lot of reviewers out there right now who are bashing the film just so they can be the cool guy who doesn't fall in with all the other people and follow the trends.

    I totally disagree. The first film was a success because people wanted to give the film a chance. Everyone wanted to see with their own eyes what would happen with a childhood icon like Transformers. I am 29 and guys 10 years older to now all grew up around Transformers. We dragged our parents, siblings, and girlfriends along. Forced them to see it. I did at least - to share with them what I thought would be an awesome insight into why I like the Transformers franchise so much. At the end, my friends and family smiled at me but said the movie was bad. It didn't show them how cool TF was but reinforced it as a purely juvenille, grade school phenomenon.

    I know I am not going to support this new movie with my money. Nor will I force my friends and family to go see it again.

    I wish I hated everything, so I could be cool, too. :( 

    It's impossible that I won't enjoy this movie... the descriptions of the forest fight scene I keep hearing about are blowing my mind. Can't wait!
