Really? Who the HELL gave it bad reviews? I went in with low hopes, not from reviews, but I was like "eh its another movie, one was pretty good, this should be too"
And came out with a boner (and not just because of Megan Fox).
Brilliant story, history revealed, moments of tragedy, moments of absolute hilarity, and an ending that you did not imagine could be. It shocks you to the core.
Not too mention, as you guess, the action makes you hate your life for the sheer boredom it represents in comparison.

I was told that Ebert gave it a bad review so I looked it up. Then I went to rottentomatoes and it had a 20 something % rating. most critics hated it.

I still give it an 8.8-9.0 out of 10 personally, and I am hard and judgmental on movies.

I'm going into the movie looking for a bunch of explosions, cool robot fights and Megan Fox. if none of those disappoint then i'll be happy

"If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination."
"The movie has been signed by Michael Bay. This is the same man who directed "The Rock" in 1996. Now he has made "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Faust made a better deal. This isn't a film so much as a toy tie-in."
"There are many great-looking babes in the film, who are made up to a flawless perfection and look just like real women, if you are a junior fanboy whose experience of the gender is limited to lad magazines."
Ebert is a huge movie fan, and he reviews the vast majority of movies favorably. This movie must be awful for him and ~75% of other critics to review it negatively.

Was at 22 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. That is a large group of critics. I may go see it. The reviews are scaring me away.

I am not too big on these Michael Bay films. Its like they converse in one liners. The dialogue is very weird to me. And the action is entirely CGI. I just cant get into it like I can with movies with better charactar development.

Shia LeBouf = Horrid Dialogue + box office poison.
But I'll see it for azz kicking robots and Megan, my girlfriend, Fox.

Saw it last night...good action, but overall pretty disappointing.

I also heard it was rather disappointing,...I was really wanting it to be better than the first too.

Did those two robots , Mudflap and whateverthef**k come across as racist as I've heard ? I have not seen this one yet but I have been trying to tell people that the first one was racist since it came out on DVD .

I saw it Wednesday. They had it open to some of the Brass, so I went. It wasn't as good as the first one, which was/is one bad ass movie, but it's still better than what some are reporting. And Megan, well, I'll just leave it at this...
The best movie thus far this summer, The Hangover; I laughed like there's no tomorrow.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Iron Lungz again.
-thats the reason to see transformers right there though

Just got back... Plenty of action but over all the movie was a big disappointment. I expected a lot more. Just too many stupid moments that wrecked the good parts.

I enjoyed it for what it was: a mindless action film. It would have been nice if the plot was a little more solid, but I was too destracted by the crazy action sequences to care.
Had quite a few funny moments too. Not all the attempts at humor were sucessful, imo...I guess they were trying to reach a wide audience. And those two over-stereotyped robots: omg, wtf was that.
Not one of my favorite movies, but it was a lot of fun to watch in the theater. The slow-mo of Megan Fox running = gold.
