Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen

Those mighty-morphin’ robots return with a US $200 million budget and scenes shot in IMAX. Michael Bay (Armageddon, Transformers) is of course back at the helm and all the main stars return, including Shia LaBeouf, John Turturro and long-limbed sexpot Megan Fox. This time the action takes a more international turn, with some parts of the movie having been filmed around and even on the pyramids at Giza.

Little seems new compared to the first installment, except that this version is longer, louder, and perhaps "more than your eye can meet" in one sitting.

Old folks may find the relentless sensory assault a little draining, but the bangs, ’bots and bombast ensure Fallen has everything Transformers fans will want and expect.

A horrible experience of unbearable length, briefly punctuated by three or four amusing moments.

This movie is not as much fun as the first but it manages to retain a human scale while giving us really high-end special effects. Instead of fudging things with night-time battles, we see robot combat in bright sunlight. Which is pretty impressive.

There’s plenty here for 14-year-old boys to salivate over, not enough for the rest of us.

With its intelligence at the level of the simple-minded, however, the film is not likely to attract moviegoers who seek something more than a screen filled with kaleidoscopes of colored metal. Fan boys will no doubt love it, but for the uninitiated it's loud, tedious and, at 147 minutes, way too long.

A super-sized second helping, but the novelty factor and some of the charm’s gone. Hey, at least there’s more Megatron / Starscream squabbling this time round.

This is a tedious load of old rubbish.
