Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Action 2009)

This movie was pretty good...it's what action movies are all about right here. Everything made an appearance from the action, embedded comedy, hotties, sick cars, military stuff, fights; pretty much everything. Even though it was a tad longer than an average film it was satisfying to watch the whole way through.

A few scenes that were getting noticeably reused were a few slow-mo scenes with a bunch of AF guys walking and the "romantic" scene with Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf. They weren't bad or nothin' but the same scene with different actors can be found in many of Michael Bay's other films. When people start noticing things like this, that's when you have to change it up or else you'll end up like the Saw series where things get really old.

Another thing worth commenting on is the whole hero mentality of the US military. Yes we do have the greatest technology and weapons for warfare, but it seems way too unrealistic for other countries to not mind at all that a huge US taskforce is having a war on their soil. I think Egypt and China's militaries would've been more involved if not downright pissed off...but again this is a movie.

Even with its small areas of unbelievability, it was still a good movie and currently takes the cake for this year's most satisfying film I've watched.
