Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen

Posted by Janelle Monday, June 22, 2009

After seeing the trailer being played over and over everywhere...we were pretty excited to catch this movie seeing that it became such a phenomenon after the first movie. Also the amount of publicity it got as brands after brands using Transformers for its marketing campaigns.
Imagine how we were even more stoked when United International Pictures decides to give MyPurpleJournal tickets to watch its premieres tonight (*big shout out to MPJ reader, Janet! It was really fun catching this premiere with you and your friend tonight!). As you can see, we just came back from the premiere and is really excited to tell you, our readers all about it!

The battle for Earth has ended but the battle for the universe has just begun. After returning to Cybertron, Starscream assumes command of the Decepticons, and has decided to return to Earth with force. The Autobots believing that peace was possible finds out that Megatron's dead body has been stolen from the US Military by Skorpinox and revives him using his own spark. Now Megatron is back seeking revenge and with Starscream and more Decepticon reinforcements on the way, the Autobots with reinforcements of their own, may have more to deal with then meets the eye.

Well that about sums up the plot with deeper plot revelation in between, continueing the Transformer phenomenon that started in the first movie. The second movie is a direct continuation of the first movie with all the same casts from the first with additional new characters and new Transformers.
This one definitely has more humour, even though they may appear to be too intentional and PG13 but they were funny nonetheless. While you can expect funny moments from Shia LeBouf and his co-stars, even the Autobots have their funny moments with Bumblebee bursting into diesel tears at one point.

We HAVE to mention our favourite transformers in the movie, a pink and green little autobots, who are technically twins, seeing that they were identical and also their compatibility. They were fantastically awesome and absolutely the cutest thing we see!! That you have to look out for.

Technically the movie was pretty awesome, with more destructions and explosions compared to the first one. However, the transformations of the Robots were a little too confusing seeing as they were too upclose or the camera directions were confusing. This somehow made the fighting scenes quite a blur at some point. Perhaps Michael Bay could have done a better job, but it was still a good job nonetheless.

I definitely enjoyed myself very much as did the rest of the movie goers at the cinema seeing that an applause broke out as the credit rolled. We at MyPurpleJournal definitely recommend this movie eventhough you may have to be quick in booking your tickets seeing as the tickets are already being pre sold! We smell that this might be a HUGE boxoffice movie!
