    Overall, how would you rate the film?

    I know a thread like this has been made before, but now that most everybody got to see it at least once, maybe twice, what is your overall opinion of this film?

    My opinion hasn't much changed. Well, maybe its a bit more critical of aspects like errors, mistakes, bad writing, certain actors, jumbled plot, lack of explanations, Clones, etc.. ...okay, my opinion has changed, for the worse. But still, I give it credit for being a summertime action popcorn flick that happened to have robots that reconfigure, for being a TF continuity I can share with my wife & son, and for the obvious worldwide earnings. All that said, as with anything, it could have been sooooo much better.

    Oh, for fucks sake! How many more of these "opinion on the movie" threads do we need? Especially when there is a thread deemed by the people who run this site to be the official place for just that?

    Taking into consideration of how many members we have, divided by how many have seen the film, carry the umpteen, multiply by lack of search function usage, over the sum of wanting to post own topic, mmhmm, subtract the post counts of veterans while adding interest of threads without 20+ pages, and, yes - by my calculations the answer is 741.

    We need 741 more of these threads. But don't worry, they'll pop up naturally, no need to run out hitting that new thread button. ;)

    Great. I enjoyed it immensely, but it had enough flaws that I can't honestly give it more than an 8.

    Great entertainment but I wouldn't go as far as to say it was a great or perfect film, just good.

    I give it a 5. The action and robots were amazing, but the technical aspects of the film are just plain horrible.

    I give it a 9. I was totally blown away but I still want more robot screen time & less humans. Leo wasn't needed at all & didn't add anything to the movie. Take Leo & Sam's parents out & give that screen time to Jolt,Arcee & Sideswipe

    10/10 (I was vote #2) - Revenge of the Fallen was a fantastic movie for me (even better on IMAX).

    8/10

    Action movie-Focuses on Action more than plot/character development.

    Critics claim this movie is for idiots because it lacks plot/character development. First off, it's a Michael Bay movie, WTF did you expect. Second, it's ACTION. It focuses on DUH the action.

    Going into the theater expecting this to be shakespeare makes you look like the idiot. And it's not the "Switch off your brain" thing, you watch it, you go ooh and aah and you nerdgasm (This is reserved for us, the Transfans lol) you marvel at the FX and the badassery, then you leave with your appetite for action satisfied.

    I think between a 7 and an 8 is about the most honest rating this movie can have. It's not the best but it ain't the worst. It's between ok and good. Rottentomatoes, Ebert, IMDb, all that shit, screw 'em. I can understand a valid reason not to like it, but to completely have a bitch-fit in your review about things noone, not even other dislikers, gave a flying fuck about... you know what I can't even put it into words how to describe those kind of people.

    One time was more than enough times seeing it for me. While it was far from the worst movie I've ever seen I just have no desire to see it a second time.

    I do like the option though of being able to rate it from one to ten instead of only having two or three choices that might not cover your feeling.

    6.5/10

    Just because, even with all its flaws, it entertains me.

    I thought it was pretty good but, robots kicking each others ass only goes so far.

    4.

    It was too long, Jetfire was poorly portrayed as an old cockney geezer, the Twins were downright annoying (as was Sam's mum!), and they defeated Devastator (wtf?!), Devastator himself was like the G1 cartoon ("nothing can defeat the Devestator!" - well apart from Rumble, Frenzy, Bumblebee, the Care Bears, a hologram, and a meat pie), the Sam 'going to Autobot heaven' scene was cringeworthy......it all added up to a poor film. (for me personally)

    Transformers 3 is going to take some convincing for me to go.
