'09 | Transformers 2 effing long

Two and a half hours to be exact. The action-packed yet plot-holed film tried way too hard. It was basically the first film with a new, slightly more powerful villain who's reign of power comes as quickly as it goes. There is no build up to some climatic battle and any hint of suspense is easily so foiled, even the targeted 10-year-old can figure it out. Megan Fox is annoyingly distracting with her love(?) for Sam. The entire romance has no purpose in the film. This is Transformers: the only love the audiene is concerened about is the love they have for this pop culture icon. Leave romance to Harry Potter in a few weeks. The only pluses to me in the film were the lady friend Sam meets at college (another annoying scenery) and the Kinetica-like female Autobots who were kickass. And I liked the addition of Sideswipe to the protagonist's team. Evidently I felt there were never enough Autobots to rally against the more abudnant Decepticons who kept coming and coming. Not to mention their better , sleeker, deadlier selection of vehicles to host.
Great for a '09kd. Not so much for the '09 adult.
