Movie review – Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen

The show was at 1130pm @ Plaza Sing. It was full, even the front-most row was fully occupied. I was feeling fortunate to get a good seat.

The show started with the Autobots doing their daily business, that is removing the remnants of the Decepticons. Unknown to Optimus Prime, the Decepticons are planning something else, involving the poor Sam Witwicky who is now going to college and trying to keep his girlfriend Mikaela interested at the same time.

What ensues are machine porn. Metal against metal and Megan Fox’s jiggling acts which kept many males inside the theatre so hot until it was getting stuffy. And by halfway through the show, i was getting this very bad headache from all the heavy metal sex.

1) Storyline – 27 / 30

Ok, i am not a hardcore fan of Transformers, so i wasn’t too sure of the history and links of this story. But overall the plot is not too stretch to take although it will be interesting to see how the third movie will go. And having read some wiki entry, it seems that this movie is not religiously following the original story.

2) Entertainment value – 23 / 25

If not for the headache, i think i will be tremedously enjoyed myself. Whats there to ask for when u can get see great concept cars, fantastic looking robots, wide range of weaponry against each other. The CGI effects are superb and there are more closeups of the robots. Plus a healthy dose of Megan Fox.

3) Cast – 25 / 25

The cast from the 2007 Transformers movie continues. I was pleased to see John Turturro (aka “Phantom" is Don’t mess with the Zohan) still as the Agent Simmons. Sam’s whimpy classmate Leo is actually quite irritating. On the whole, Megan Fox alone wins.

4) Pace / Flow – 12/ 20

At 147min, this movie is long so go prepared. And at some point, you will feel the drag and wonder how the movie has not gone faster. The fighting are well spread throughout the show and perhaps i was expecting to see a slug fest from start till end so end up slightly disappointed.

Overall: 87%

This is a great show for guys who can get to ogle at so many stuffs at the same time, i almost felt two eyes weren’t enough. But the ladies won’t go away bored, there is also plenty of funny one lines, hunks, cute bots (Bumble-bee, Mudflap and Skidz). I knew my girl enjoyed herself too.


Tourist fun FAIL

The lady tourist is such a poor thing, i don’t think she ever expect to get into this

If u do however, get into such mess, how would u react?

Random shots

Last friday, the Asian Civilisation Museum had a free openhouse until 12am. I managed to reach only at 11:30pm.

Didn’t get to read through the display since i was short of time. Definitely worth a second visit but i find the entrance fees of $8 quite steep. I am sure many felt the same since it was still quite crowded when i got in.

Came out unsatisfied. There will be another similar openhouse this friday, maybe i should go.

So i took a short walk along the Singapore river (its the Singapore River festival btw) and took some photos.

The Fullerton hotel opposite Boat Quay.

Oh, i didn’t take any pictures inside the ACM since i won’t be allowed to publish any on my blog.

Nite shoot on 5th June

Its been some time since i last took some nite shots. Location this time was the Sheares bridge and the nearby marina area.
