    Hey, it can’t possibly be much worse, can it? I’ll probably give in and see this, though I do have that fear that I’m feeding the machine a bit.

    I still like the first one though. It’s got that almost fun ’80s film quality about it’s opening hour or so: geeky kid gets car, attention of hot girl, and goes on adventure. Where it doesn’t work is that Bay, as an action director, is terrible at shooting action sequences; he’s got no sense of rythm, weight, pacing or spacial awareness.

    And that’s sort of hidden by the trailers in that they have good impressive shots, but because they’re in trailers rather than a film, they don’t have to fit into an entire sequence. But there are few things I like the look of here; there seems to be a space bridge or two; the Transformers themselves do seem to stand out a bit more and aren’t just a formless mass of pixels; and they’re better designed (I can tell that one of them is supposed to be Shockwave for example); and the scale is genuinely impressive.

    I am also happy to see the space bridge, and the glowing red eye of Shockwave was nice to see. I’ll keep my fingers crossed…

    Sorry, Michael Bay Spielberg, You may have had three chances a billion dollars but you can’t improve on this:

    Kidding aside: What’s the deal the ones at 1:21 and 2:10? Are they Decepticons or something else all together?

  4. Martin

    I had assumed they’re Decepticons but maybe they’re a different faction.

    I won’t hear a bad word against the ’86 animated movie. I think it’s genuinely good. Sure, it’s a bit shrill, but it’s got better action sequences and a more comprehensible plot than either of the two films, and manages greater emotional impact in one scene than Bay’s produced from his entire career.

    Yeah. What Martin said. Plus the ’86 version has the voices of Orson Welles and Leonard Nimoy. Excelsior!
