ok. I finally saw the movie. I liked it. A lot more than I thought I would with all of the bad reviews. I liked it more than the first one. I'm definitely going to be buying the DVD of this and rewatching it dozens of times. But in trying to think about what I liked and what I didn't like about the film. It came down to one thing. TOO MANY ROBOTS I can't believe I'm even saying that. All throughout the first one I was thinking 'more robots! more robots!'. And this one just had more of everything. But the movie was so long. And I'm left leaving the theater thinking 'wow, I wish Arcee could have had more screen time' or 'Where was Ratchet'? But at the same time, how could they really feature them? There were something like 30 robots we had no names for, or no alt forms for, who were just running around getting blown up. This isn't a negative review. I can't wait to see this film again. It was the most over the top summer blockbuster robot film I've ever seen. I just hope that in future viewings I'll be able to keep the multiple robots straight. I watched the first film a dozen times and loved seeing Ironhide transform and kick ass, or Starscream swoop in and transform and beat the crap out of everyone. I really don't care about Robot number 2 who had a pillar fall on him or baby robot #8 who fell out of a sac and died.
