I’ve highly anticipated the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen even before the credits rolled on the first one. So imagine my dismay when I logged on and noticed several Facebook status updates dogging the much-awaited sequel, which opened today.
Wanting more 411, I sought out a few reviews.
Roger Ebert’s absolutely scathing review opened as follows:
“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” is a horrible experience of unbearable length, briefly punctuated by three or four amusing moments…. If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination.”
Um, a bit harsh I thought, so I moved on to the Rotten Tomatoes website.
At present count, 115 of 146 reviews considered the flick as Rotten. Only 31 reviews gave it a Fresh determination.
My Facebook status will shortly read “Crestfallen!”
So, if anyone out there cares to give this flick some love, please let me know by shooting an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
