What makes these films bad? Now going in the first movie on its own I believe was a pretty good and fair sci-fi film. It had consistant plot and character development. If anyone lacked, it was Racthet, but hey, aw well. You saw each human character in good form and attitude. Being her first big role, I think this is Megan Fox's best performance. I actually like her a lot in this movie. The story wraped up VERY well and left room for a sequel. Then we got the sequel..... Yeah. What d we get? Half assed plot, lots of SPOLSIONS, and some uncanny acting. All in all, it introduced some fun characters (by that I'm referring to Arcee, Sideswipe, Leo, Devastator). Each character fufiled their purpose. It was, a decepticons movie but, it was a bad movie. It rushed some parts and dragged the rest of the way. It had plot gaps. Very messy. Not the worst movie ever, buuuuuuut, FAR from great. Then, What do ya know! Another sequel! Now this is where its torn. The movies either good, or bad. Honestly, it was no oscar winning performance (well....Patrick Dempsey was really good as a villain) aside from visual effects. But, the plot. Now I think this movie had good balance with human/robot screen time. It did lack emotion at parts it should have. The ending was a little rushed and there was not that much closure. But what makes them bad!? I think its a great TransFormers film! Now, keep this in mind. We are a fanbase purely on the concept of the Transformers. But, they're are some of us who are extremely too picky for the brand! We love G1, but hate the movies for a lackluster plot.....WUT. I don't get how you hate the movies and everything else because it's not G1 when it was the most lacking of the Transformers series. People like beast wars, yeah. RID is ok. Unicron trilogy, nope. Eff it. Animated? There are people who hate animated and I don't understand why. Great show! Prime is good, and I think we all like that. but what sets the movies apart?! And I want to state very carefully, I am not calling anybody out. I say this in the retrospect that we all know, there are people like this on the bored. I'm not saying that's all we are, cause were not. Just for people who act like that. My point is to just get everyone's opinions why its "bad". Personally, I think Revenge of the Fallen killed the franchise. It's the Batmn & Robin of Transformers. I should state that I do like the movies! I mean that NON-FANS DON'T LIKE IT. MAINLY CRITICS. The point of the thread is why you think the movies are bad or why not. I should have stated that more clearly. Sorry about that. I'm not trying to start a flame war.
