Looks pretty good so far but Egypt? Possibly a new all spark or something.

Can't wait for this film, looks great. 1997 definitely a typo considering it came out in 2007

Looking forward to this, though does this mean a autobot/decepticon is inside the pyramids? Or hell, are the pyramids from cybertron etc?

I do believe that all of the greatest things in the world are finally coming together.
Hopefully Transformers will learn from its mistakes from the first one.

looks like a crap issue, which is a shame cos the last one was pretty good.

Coming in to Transformers, I never expected to see a movie that delivered anything more than some awesome CG and incredible action sequences. That is exactly what the first Transformers movie delivered, in my opinion. If anybody was expecting anything more, then your expectations were a bit too high.

I agree completely with geodude1990. We got the movie we expected and that was great, Anybody expecting more obviously forgot Michael Bay was directing. And he took his direction a huge step further with Transformers. Lets just be thankful we're getting to see Transformers in live action.

Yep - T2 ... I mean T2-RotF' ... looks like its going to be FUN!!! Great popcorn entertainment! That's the point - there are bad popcorn films and great popcorn films, and T1 was a great one. Bringing this film to the screen isn't easy because the central characters only mean something to the fans. Look at what happened at the Oscars and the Bafta's - the FX award went to an inferior FX film - why, cuz the 'luvvies' who voted couldn't take this seriously. Anyone who read the original comics in the 80's will know that Transformers was character led - (that's why the Gobots weren't as good), every single toy had a personal biography on the back of the toy, characters that helped the stories in the comics - of course this was a way of selling toys and the concept, but when we got one of these toys home we loved not only the design but we knew WHO the toy was (very important when you have two identical toys with only the name, colour and personality separating them) . Asking audiences to take these characters as seriously as we fans do is a huge risk in cinema terms. So if the best they can do is a popcorn summer action CGI comedy action flick then - as long as it is GREAT popcorn entertainment - I am definitely in!!! Regardless - it is always a thrill to see Optimus Prime as a living and ‘breathing (?)' concept brought to life by the magic of cinema. Could it be better - maybe, but then again it could be much much much worse! Bring on 'Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen'.

What was so dismal about the first film? Sure it could have been a bit better but like some have pointed out if you where expecting a Blade Runner or Terminator 2 then me thinks your expectations where too high. I know most of us who where fans of the cartoon are in our mid 20's to early 30's but ere, hello it's still aimed at kids!

If this learns from the mistakes the last film made then this could be amazing. For all it's flaws I enjoyed the last movie. It's a huge fun summer film...with giant fighting robots that knows when to poke fun at itself. It delivered in that sense.

The main problem from the last film for me was the whole "Computer whizz" sub-plot. I feel that really was not needed unless those characters are going to carry through to the next movie. Those sections made the film drag on a bit. The army sections even though they were stock characters they were decent enough and needed in the film.

The lead of Section 7 ... probaly hit a miss with a lot of people. Combined with the scene with the siege defending against that mini decepticon again probaly hit and miss. Yet I feel at least there were times the film did not take itself too seriously which was to it's benefit (for example the Transformers waiting for sam to find the cube in his front garden ).

The film also did great job of portraying the Transformers. Even the updates/redesigns did not bother me. It struck up that sense of nostalgia etc. The action scenes with the transformers look brilliant. The odd part where it is hard to make out who is fighting yet still amazing visually. Though on my second viewing this was less of a problem. A focus on the Transformers and on core characters would be a huge improvement for this film. I am truly looking forward to this.

the mian problem IMO was considering it was an action film, it was a total letdown. most of the fight scenes were just a blurry mismatch of metal, and all the cool stuff like the highway chase had been shown on the trailers.
so for me it was very very boring.
it'd probbaly help if i'd been a transformers fan as a kid but i never was.

I enjoyed Transfomers, however I thought John Turturro almost single handedly ruined it... his character was godawful; in fact the whole sector 7 thing really spoiled it.  Awesome fun apart from that though.

From your post it's quite clear that you have no interest in a new Transformers flick, but I'm not sure you should be assuming that no other film fan wants to see the new one.
I for one can't wait. As long as they tidy up the action scenes, so that it's, y'know, clear what's actually going on, it should be your standard, no brainer, explosive summer action film.

The pics are boring as fuck mind

I'm obviously in the minority here - but Transformers was a complete pile of cack. And even more depressing is that Empire have stuck a great big picture of one of them on the latest issue. Sure Michael Bay's film was entertaining enough - if you were a lobotimised monkey with a bad case of ADS. The rest of us prefer action films that make a bit of sense - films that don't look like they've been butchered and edited by a demented Edward Scissorhands on crack - thank you very much ......

Transformers 1 had excellent VFX and was lucky to have Shia LeBeouf (cock, how do I spell the bugger) show off his light comedy skills. But that and "subbar haaawd" Megan Faaawks wasn't enough and isn't enough to lure me back. I don't want to waste any more of my brains capacity for this franchise. Just did? Oopsh.

That's where the original drakula (updated to 'Drake', because it sounds so damn cool. Erhem...) came from! Oh no, that was aparently in Iraq, in the good awful Blade 3 film. But to Transformers 2 - If its the same but with more robots and more Bayhem, that'll do. What else do you expect? They're films centred around car-robot toy cartoons. Just enjoy the spectacle and stop wingeing that there's no substance...

Transformers was a fun epic summer spectacle, a thousand times better than the likes of Van Helsing, Fantastic Four, etc.

It's a great good versus evil adventure and the second one looks just as good.

Couldn't agree more. As pointed out in the "Kermode's Reviews" thread, anyone expecting anything other than crash bang wallop from a film about fuck-off robots fighting each other probably walked into the wrong film.

Glad to see that most of the decent cast members have returned too.

I'll jump on ye olde bandwagon and say I back this sentiment too.  UTB totally hits the nail on the head with the above. I don't see how anybody could have gone into Transformers expecting anything other than what was demonstrated in the trailers.  It was never going to be brain fodder, it was all about candy for your eyes, with some nonsense thrown in along the way, leading up to the ultimate face off we'd all been waiting for.

I'm not saying you can't dislike it, I'm quite sure it's not everybody's cup of tea, but I don't see how you could be disappointed when surely you knew exactly what you were walking into.

However, despite all of this, I'm completely skeptical about having this sequel.  I'm like this with most sequels however and with a few exceptions (The Bourne triology) they're now something I try to avoid as they just ruin the freshness of the original for me.  Most notable examples include Pirates of the Carribbean which I loved when I saw and it remained this stand-out, one-off film that appeared to come from nowhere, until they brought out the 2nd one.  I saw that and was direly disappointed, so didn't even bother seeing the 3rd.   Now the first is all mixed up in my head with the 2nd since I've just not felt the urge to watch the first after the disastrous second.   Again with the Saw 'franchise'.   Loved the first one and unfortunately caught the 2nd and 3rd ones; they're just completely doing it to death. 

I really wish Transformers as we already have it would be a one-off, but since I have no say in the matter, I just hope like hell they make it on a par with 2007's one or surpass it.

Please, please, oh, please someone tell the director to use the slow motion features to the fullest this time around. I really want to marvel at Prime jabbing a fifty-foot sword into another Constructicon's gullet...
