    Im late in doing this. i didnt see the movie until it was released on dvd.i have watched it about 5 or 6 times. compared to the first movie this was a disgrace. For a movie about toys the first one was near perfect. but this movie is just terrible. the story is scattered. the fight scenes are great but they sacraficed alot of the movie for it. I know everyone complained about too much "human" stufff and not enough robot stuff but to the casual movie goer that doesnt matter they just wanna see a good movie. this was not a good movie. If i wasnt a collector of transformers id say it was terrible. justt my 2 cents

    I too thought the first was much better, but not to such a degree as you hold. And can you elaborate? The only point you make, which is one shared by many others, to justify its terribleness is "good action, bad plot".

    While I can appreciate that you've just recently seen the movie, there are still many many threads that your opinion could be posted in without creating a whole new one.

    That being said, your sentiments are shared by many on this site.

    Being so late in reviewing the movie he would have had to have revived an old thread, so really it's a catch 22.

    Yup- there we go again with Jetstorm: if you hate Animated or the movie, then you must hate G1 as well.

    but the movie, it raked in BOTH millions, so our laments are only proof of our shitty opinion, which is why we hang out at sites devoted to the miniature idols of giant metal shape-shitfing space aliens, as opposed to facing reality. ALL HAIL MEGATRON

    Not saying I agree, but I think his point was that everything you described as being wrong with ROTF took place 10-fold in the G1 cartoon.

    Well it would be so much easier on everyone if the movie was a good movie. It was only a CGI spectacle.

    There were just a bunch of bad decisions made in this movie and there was alot of cheese. The only thing I thought was done better was they did not over highlight the military. There inability to handle demolisher in the beginning was a welcome change from the first.

    but the story just is such a train wreck that it is going to illicit being made fun of for years so you guys should really get used to it instead of going OH NO HEAR WE GO AGAIN.

    As TF fans you should be upset they use long standing fan favorites as Cannon fodder for action. Never mind Barricade the biggest fan favorite of the new movie never even returned.

    Last point of contention how in the hell can Primes transformation be so fudged and the ROTF toy be so friggin good. They must not of even made an attempt to get it right. They literally could use the ROTF toys transformation and use movie magic to clear out the cab section.

    Am I the only one peaved that the transformations always seem differant from one scene to the next.
