Default Was Transformers 2 a let down for you?

It was for me. It was like there was no plot in the movie. Just non stop action and transforming. Is it me or did they try to introduce every Transformer ever known in this film. I felt a lot of the scenes made no sense. I loved the first movie, but this one was a bore.

Not in the least!

I knew exactly what I was getting when I went in, I was not disappointed and I enjoyed every dumb, silly, explosive minute of it.

Given the similar dumbness of the first, I don't see how it could be that huge a letdown.

I felt the same way. I did enjoy the first movie and was expecting something similar but this new one was just a mess. I never expected Citizen Kane out of it, but at least a coherent story to take you through those awesome transforming, giant robot fight scenes, but that's all it was, awesome transforming, giant robot fight scenes.

At least the guy is honest. But silly fun could also have great writing for example. Case in point: "Airplane!"

I'll know when I see it Sunday.
And seeing as how I'm probably the biggest TF nerd on this board, my review will be long, and rambling.....I'll just dump it in this thread when I do, yes?

It was good. Better than I thought it was going to be. I could have done without some of the scenes and think that glossed over some characters but I had the same issues with the first one.

I don't plan on seeing it until it comes out on DVD.
