[an error occurred while processing this directive]Not all movie can be made into good sequels. Perhaps this is the thought director Michael Bay missed while directing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The movie seemed to be directed by the aliens rather than Michael Bay as the story falls apart in the first hour itself and seems like the director tries to forcefully establish it. He can"t even put a coherent series of shots together in the entire movie.

All Bay seems to know is action that never stops and seems to be obsessed with it throughout the movie. Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman share the writing credit for apology of a script. The actors in the movie seem to have come out of a sitcom and it is the robots which entertain the audience. It will be difficult for Michael Bay to live up to the standards set by this movie!

Shia LaBeouf (Sam Witwicky) had saved the planet from the attack of the aliens in the first sequal and in Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen he is trying to forget that he discovered a robot alien race. Sam is now interested about his education and starts going to the college. He also holds onto his sizzling girlfriend Mikaela Banes(Megan Fox)

The Autobots are still on earth and have now allied with the US military. They are working together to protect the earth from further Decepticon attacks Unfortunately, as Optimus Prime solemnly intones, "Fate never calls on us at the moment of our choosing." The Decepticons are on the move again, with the very ancient and very evil Transformer - The Fallen - masterminding a diabolical plan to destroy the Autobots

Optimus Prime's aim is to destroy the Earth itself and secure the future of his race. Soon earth turns battleground for these ancient robotic foes to wage war. Sam Witwicky sheds his student self and once again takes up the responsibility of saving the human race from these aliens. While Sam be able to save the human race from Optimus Prime?

Shia LaBeouf is highly repetitive throughout the movie and doesn't seem to be the same actor as in the first sequel. He is anything but impressive in the movie. Megan Fox is has been totally wasted in the movie and Bay used her only to display her ample bosom and curvaceous butt. Other characters hardly find an significance in the movie. The robots make superstars like entries and at times outshine the actors in most sequences.

The only thing noticeable in the entire movie was the graphic works. It has surely improved from the first part. The drama is short on a variety of military bases, and throws in several robot-on-robot battles for good measure . In the end 147 minutes gives us a never ending feeling and is too much time for the sloppy work. Michael Bay could have easily done something in this regards and shortened the torture period for the audience.
