Now, before you start flaming me, i'm going to flat out admit that I DO like film franchise. Sure it's not perfect but the 2007 movie was damned entertaining. However, I have to admit I was not amazed by Revenge of the Fallen. And I disappointed to see that anyone here who says the slightest unfavorable comment about it gets flamed and bashed. Also, the unjustified hatred towards crictis is appalling. Yes, critics can be assholes. But at the end of the day, Revenge of the Fallen is a very flawed movie. The plot is left for dead 2/3 of the way through the film. Some of the jokes are totally inappropriate/unwarranted. Characterization was left at the bottom of the ocean like Megatron. To be fair, the critics made valid points 85% of the time. I don't think that they should be given so much abuse. From my point of view - Revenge of the Fallen had some high points, and some very low points. Arcee and Sideswipe were totally wasted characters. Jetfire, while amusing, did little and died pretty much straight away. I'll admit that I did like the Twins but i'd have happily stuck them on the backburner for more Arcee/Sideswipe/Ironhide/Ratchet. The constructicons were a disaster - no one knew which are real, which are possible clones, what was the point in Devastator etc. The Matrix of Leadership had *nothing* to do with leadership - just used to power the Sun Harvester Wheelie disappears inexplicably shortly before seeing the Twins take on Dev, who we then never see again either... My point is, there are some very big flaws in this film, you cannot use the 'it's a summer blockbuster so it doesn't matter' as justifiable for such issues. So why is it whenever someone says 'ROTF doesn't please me, as a movie' - they get their head ripped off? Surely people can realise that there's many reasons to dislike this film. Final note: ROTF Jetfire is personally, my favourite incarnation of the character.
