Sure, the story had some holes in it, like how a Decepticon can now assume the form of a hot blonde college girl, or where Megan Fox got her costume changes (in the middle of the Egyptian dessert). But who cares about the story and the minor continuity problems, when the fight scenes are this great. Really, the nerd-oks who drew the story boards for this movie and slept with their Hasbro action figures for such purpose, deserve a Nobel. Waaayyy to go, genuises.
Also, Shia LaBeouf deserves an award first for having such a rocking unique birth name, and second, for playing an excellent Sam Witwicky. Maybe he won't get one from the Academy, but perhaps from MTV.
But then, there's Megan Fox. Ah Megan. I have issues with her, but they have less to do with her acting than with her trying-hard copy-cat attempts at looking like the queen of bad-ass, Angelina Jolie. In this movie, her new lips are so oily, I'm wondering whether she ate too much lechon. (Refer to before and after pictures above) Blotting paper, Megan?
My bias against Megan Fox notwithstanding, Transformers II will still be one of those movies that I will force our children to watch when they turn 15. It's worth sitting through 2 1/2 hours of explosions, if only to hear Sam Witwicky say: "Optimuuuuuuuuusssssssss!!!!"
