While having the most drama and action of the series this was actually the hardest one to watch. Everything became a distraction and while I love they used Leonard Nimoy as Sentinel Prime the amount of catch phases and one liners injected in the film did nothing to add to it. Hasbro really dropped the ball allowing this script to go to film, it wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t anywhere near good either. It was like they were trying to shove the kitchen sink in on every single scene. I know it is about the world being over run by mechanical aliens that want to colonize our world but give me a break.

The year is 1957, a time of the Cold War, anti-communism hysteria, and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford of Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark , Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) is on another adventure as he is hauled into Area 51 by KBG agents to find an artifact that is stored in a cavernous warehouse. The team is lead by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett of The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring), a leader in paranormal research for her Socialist empire, as she calls it. There is much mistrust going on when Indy and his companion, ‘Mac’ George Michale (Ray Winstone) ask for gunpowder to lead them to the artifact, as it is highly magnetic, and the powder will lead the way. Once they find the box, Agent Spalko opens it only to find the remains of an alien body. This is no ordinary alien. This is the body of one of the aliens found in Roswell, New Mexico ten years before. Indy was working as a specialist on that case then, but ten years later, he is still very much in the dark about what went on there. More mistrust occurs when Mac turns on him for payment by the KGB, as Mac has amassed some gambling debts the Russians are willing to pay off. There is much bullets and blood and mayhem as Indy makes his escape, and he finds himself in a fake suburban town populated with manniquins. The Howdy Doody show is running on the black and white TV, but that little theme song is drowned out by sirens, and Indy has no time to escape what is coming. He dives into a lead-lined refrigerator, and is thrown from the nuclear test blast that annihilates the fake town. Somehow, he manages to make it back home to Connecticut and is teaching again at Marshall College when Dean Charles Stanforth (Jim Broadbent of The Borrowers) approaches Indy about all the chaos he is causing with the government agencies and the board of regents. The FBI has gotten involved and it has caused such an uproar that in order for Indy to keep his job, the Dean was forced to resign. Read more...

While the movie was enjoyable it is one that is easily forgotten soon as the theater lights go up. Once the film was over you are left wondering what it was that you just watched and trying to remember all that happened in the film. While it is full of action, drama and suspense you really have to wonder what is going on even when you know what is going on. The first film was really great at leading you through the story and giving you bits and pieces of the whole to keep you revved up right till the end. This film, Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen from Michael Bay left this reviewer flat like a soda left out too long. While it tasted good it was missing the zest, the zing that would make me want to have more. Nothing wrong with the story itself but the execution of the story left much to be desired, like the rest of the film. You get the feeling that half or maybe even over half of the film might have been left on the cutting room floor. I don’t know what the writers, producers and director were thinking when they did this film but one thing is for sure their minds were not on this film while it was being made. I feel bad for the actors that got shoved through this one. Read more... (758 words, 121 images, estimated 3:02 mins reading time)
Anyone who loves a good action film is not going to be disappointed by this film from Michael Bay. It has all the elements for a great Sci-Fi action thriller that should please everyone, unfortunately not everyone. Having watched the cartoon since it first aired on TV in 1984 and several of the incarnations since then I personally feel that the film indeed captures the essence of when Hasbro and Marvel first did the shows and comics. While purists hate anything Michael Bay may make this reviewer feels that he did the name of Transformers true justice. The film is about autonomous robots that are seeing something on earth, just as in the old series. While the first movie doesn’t deal with the search for Energon but it does make hints at it with them showing that there are a group of transformers on the surface of Mars. This film deals with the search for the All Spark, the Cube, their maker. The show also has the interactions between the humans and the transformers with the interaction with the teens that ultimately become their spokesmen on earth. With so much coming from the old series there is no way that you can not mistake this as not being a full authentic transformers film. Read more...
