I haven't seen it yet, but it sounds like your main complaint is the non political correctness of it? If that's the case then how is the rest of it?

Bah I could care less about the non politicalness and more about robat genitalia, bad writing and the cramming of things down my gullet. Yes I Know the robot is a bad-ass, He doens't have to say P*#@y in every other word. I love crude humour and bad jokes but when tere is a movie full of it and the jokes fell flat 15 min in. It's kinda like the guy that thinks he is so funny but isn't at all.

I'll probably love it regardless. It's transformers and I grew up in the 80's.

I love the twins in the new movie. Them and Sideswipe. Did anybody else notice that Longhual looks kinda like a space marne.

Ive thought about doing a small space marine army with each marine looking like an autobot form g1 era (my favorite series!) that would be expensive and take forever though. It would be completely kick ass though!

Long live the Transformers! (The new movies and original series I mean!)

I am absolutely stunned by the twins. At best it was bad taste. At worst....

I mean what if the twins had a hispanic accents? Maybe one turned into a a leaf blower that the other used to "clean up" other peoples property.


Or maybe they could speak in using R's instead of L's and drove slow and shitty but were really good at math and science?

A shame that derogatroy imagery is used in attempt to relate the movie to the "street". While not everyone understands this, it is incredibly sad that someone assumes (in the day in which you have a bright intelligent african american man as the leader of the free world) that the way to reach a young street audience is by delivering this stereotype.

I don't even think it was an attempt to reach the street audience, John.

I think it was just intentionally derogatory.

And CJ, wouldn't you have rather had more Ironhide or more Sideswipe instead of the twins? They pretty much occupy all of the screen time that other cooler transformers could have had.

i'm of the same mind here-
I really enjoyed the film(It was free afterall)
but I do think the screen time could have benn beter used to show off more of the "other " 'bots

Did anyone else notice that through out the movie there were multiples of many decipticon characters? There were two Scavengers, two Longhauls, two Mix Masters, and two Rampages. There was even a Bonecrusher in the mix! Prime cut his head off in the first movie!

Yes....and if you remember....did you not see the protoforms on the moon? Transformer lore 101 for you guys. Transformers can scan and keep mutiple types of formations. Example.....Devastator. You had the parts that made him up and then you had the Formers theirselves. Bonecrusher was just another example. Mutiple protoform scan kept in record for transformation.

John. Alot of people didn't get the movie. That's fine. And everyone needs to remember, this is just a movie. We all have different tatstes. I just so happen to like the movie and don't look as deep as you do when it comes down to hspanics and leaf blowers. If you remeber correctly in the first movie, Sam asks how they found out how to speak their language. Prime says from the World Wide Web.

Twins probably just had too much MTV on in the background. I mean look at Jazz. What's crackin lil bitches?? No one blew up on that!

This is 2009 guys, not 1984. Just remeber that.

Mike......Yes I agree. Needed more Sideswipe., hell The bbike girls too. But hey, I was happy the way the movie was. An interaction between human and robot.

Ok I just got back from the movie...

I am glad I didn't listen to the naysayers, I thought it was pretty good. There were a few spots of huh what... but overall it was good. 3 1/2 Stars out of 5!

Ok, I just saw it and I actually really liked it. I knew that the twins would be the way they were, so I pretty much ignored them (though, I did think it was really funny when the one called the hispanic guy a p*&^%%!). And what is it with those stupid ear piece blue tooth phone jobbers? Guy sitting in front of me still had it in his ear and it flashed, rather brightly I might add, the ENTIRE movie! Are you REALLY that important?

But, back to the movie, I thought the story was very well put together, though it did have a lot of robot on robot killing Smile

My favorite part.... hmmm... I'd have to say it was the whole fight scene at the end! Smile

I can honestly say that I went into the movie thinking that, after liking the first one, there was no way that Michael Bay could ruin my favorite memories of childhood. I was certain that I had set my expectations so low that I would not be disappointed. I was all set to ignore the flaws and enjoy my favorite childhood heroes kicking the crap out of each other in exquisitely beautiful detail.

Unfortunately, I was proven wrong. I have to agree with sexiesthero's original assessment of the racism and sexism present throughout the movie. There are few things I can't take humorously, but TF2 presented that stuff in such a pervasive and crude way that I left the movie feeling incensed. That's saying something, because I'm not one for nerdrage.

Also, the original Transformers fluff had plenty of room for adaption. I wouldn't have even had a problem with whatever wacky new stuff they came up with if it hadn't been utterly generic and predictable as only a summer action flick can be. The ending was especially cringe-worthy in my opinion, as [SPOILER] Optimus goes into video-game boss mode effortlessly kicks everyone's ass.

A host of other minor grievances, such as an overcompensation for the first movie's lack of comic relief, and the Autobots' willingness to act like human pets, methodically wore away at my conviction to LIKE THIS MOVIE DAMMIT!

Oddly enough, the only things I came away liking were the Transformers themselves. Optimus and Bumblebee kicked ass, action was much improved from the first one.

Awesome.

It described the movie in more scathing detail than I ever could have.
