Revenge of the Fallen

Went to see this yesterday – partly as a Father’s Day treat and partly as a treat for my boys for bringing home good report cards.

Really was underwhelmed. It had many of the problems of the first movie – it was far too long, too loud, too shouty and not enough plot to justify the length of the movie. Hot women are still blatently being treated as sex objects throughout and there are even more sex references than in the first movie – this is simply unacceptable in a movie based on a range of children’s toys.

Unfortunately, giant robots blasting each other for no good reason doesn’t appeal as much as it may have 30 years ago. My wife and the boys enjoyed it though – apart from all the soppy kissing stuff – so you may well too.
