    Seemed more like a summary, than a review. Sounds awesome though.

    I thought those who already saw the movie said that Jolt had no lines.

    call me crazy, but im thinking it could be just misinformation or something. I am left to wonder!! If devy has wrecking ball bawls, then where did that come from? Is there a wrecking ball tractor that we are yet to see?? I dont know!!! Only 10 days till the truth is revealed!!

    Agent Simmons/Voice of Jetfire - John Turturro??? Last i read it was somebody else voicing Jefire.

    I think they just got the VA roles from IMDB, thus a possible mistake.

    Good review btw.

    LOL at the fact that the reviewer thought Orci and Kurtzman stole movie ideas and inserted it in Revenge of the Fallen. Double LOL for the fact that the reviewer thought "the matrix of leadership" is a reference to the the matrix films. LOL


    original excerpt from review:

    A few surprises arrive in the second half -- involving bigger, deadlier pieces of metal, including a character, the Fallen (Tony Todd), that gives the pic its title -- when the action heads to Egypt and Jordan. But returning scribes Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman -- joined this time by Ehren Kruger ("The Ring," "The Brothers Grimm") -- seem to be mining conventional motifs from "The Mummy" and "Indiana Jones" series, and even go so far as to name a pivotal object "the matrix."


    Hilarious don't you guys think? I guess the reviewer wasn't too much of a big transformers fan prior to the movies....

    In truth I could see some similar concepts from the Mummy and Indiana Jones movies -
    A long slumbering god awakened to conquer the world, and some artifacts which hold the key to Earth's past and future.

    Although its also fair to say those ideas aren't unique to the Mummy or Indiana Jones in particular, but kinda common in the movie world.

    Yeah Turturro isn't voicing jetfire, so its' still up in the air whether Jolt speaks or not.

    :lol 

    Thats the exact reason they didn't call the Allspark "The Matrix" in the first movie, now they put it back in and still get called out on it.

    LOL yeah, how unfortunate.

    I'm curious why this review has an issue with the human characters being less developed than the robots? Is he questioning whether the robots should take their place as the main characters, or whether they should break out of their still comparatively limited screentime?

    Oh, don't think I didn't use that link at the bottom of the review that allows you to email them about their inaccuracies. The line about the Matrix is bewildering.

    Ok, I'm getting lost. So are the Allspark and the Matrix of leadership the same thing? or is the Matrix of leadership separate from the Allspark/Matrix.

    Serparate things.

    I was just talking about the reasoning that was given way back when TF1 was being made, as to why the Energon cube/Allspark couldn't be called "The Matrix".
