Yweng managed to buy tickets for all 11 of us to watch Transformers II a week before the showtime. After she has told me that she bought the tickets, I was soooo looking forward to watch it and hope the Saturday comes faster. Really eager to watch it.
After watching it, to me it was OK only, nothing near spectacular lor. Hmm…. Disappointed me. I think I really has too high expectation of this film already. [If you haven’t watched this movie, please do not read on as spoilers are all ahead].
The thing was, the movie was embedded with too many LAME jokes le, I laughed, but not loud, merely just to satisfy myself only, trying to convince myself that the movie is entertaining me.
The most disturbing character: Sam’s mother was really a mess le, the way she reacted when sending Sam to college, then she menghebohkan Sam’s ‘first time’ with Mikaela while she was actually at home and she listened, then she got herself ‘drunk’ and simple jumped around the college and screaming etc. Too extreme la she, with her squeaky voice, it was just so annoying to me. Please cut down her screen time in Transformer III!
And please scrap Leo out from the movie, another annoying character.
Agent Simmons, luckily they brought him back. He really was farnie.
The movie has more decepticons than autobots. The decepticons keep on coming to the Earth and mostly are silver color. So, it confused me, megatron also silver, starscream also silver, there is one more silver decepticons during the Optimus One versus Three fighting scene. The last part of the movie worse still, so many silver decepticons. Identify yourselves la!
Give me more autobots! They only added in Arcee (3 motorbikes) and twins (Mudflap and Skids) and Sideswipe (don’t know who is he? He was the one who cut the decepticon Sideways into half at the starting part in Shanghai) and I didn’t notice Sideswipe since then. Arcee doesn’t perform well too! What is your specialty? Combine la, don’t always appear as 3 small robots and fight.
The twins has more screen time and more jokes (that appeared to be racist among some people), but what happened to them? Are they killed by Constructicons? Since Constructicons climbed up the pyramid after their fighting scene. If they are alive, why don’t stop Constructicons? Or maybe it was not Constructicons who climb up the pyramid after all! See, I am confused.
And give me more on Ironhead and Ratchet, I love them, especially Ironhead, he is so cool, tagged as Weapon Specialist. The director should explore more on him ma, give him more weapons to play with. Ratchet did have more screentime than Ironhead as he was the one who switched Jetfire’s parts to Optimus, so we see his skill.
I love Jetfire the most! The ex-decepticons who has switched side to autobots since thousands years ago and hide in a museum. He in fact was quite farnie compared to all the lame jokes that the human characters made. He was old and all his parts were rusty until he couldn’t fly (he kept on blasting out smoke from his hindside) and he has to walk with a tongkat. But he managed to teleport himself and Sam and his gang. I enjoyed his fighting scene at the last stage (I thought he will not have any more screen time after the teleportation). Why he has to die??? I don’t understand??? Stupid Scorponok, go die in the desert la you! The one and only aeroplane of autobots has died. How to fight Starscream in the next episode?
And so ever lovely Bumblebee. Give him back his voice!
As for decepticons, Ravage was good (don’t know who is he? Or maybe it. The one-eye jaguar). Love this character. He is part of Soundwave (Decepticon’s intelligent officer that sticks to the satellite). Hopefully Soundwave has more fighting scenes in the next episode.
The demolisher (the big tractor hiding in Shanghai) was so dem good and dem big size! Only Optimus can take care of him. Is always Optimus in this show (too much screen time of him).
Another impressive decepticons is The Constructicons (is constructicons also known as Devastator?). So dem huge compared to the twins. He combines too fast liao la, should put it in a slow motion so that I can see clearly la wei.
The Fallen (another old man) died too fast la! Got the Matrix straight out from Optimus heart then flew off. Fight for 5 minutes then got killed by ‘new’ Optimus. What the heck! He is supposed to be the most terrer Decepticons ma, as he is the big boss, how can he die so easily. I don’t understand.
The craziest character that they put in this movie is the Pretender known as Alice who takes the look of a human form. She was the one who stalks Sam and both of them French kiss, there they were talking about the super-how-many-foot long tongue. This is soooo Terminator ok. The only difference is that this Alice was killed when she was slammed by Sam’s car, while Terminators do not get killed so easily by slamming into them.
Suyin noted a flaw in the movie. When Sam and Mikaela was running away from all the explosion, there was this scene that the explosion went through her body and then suyin thought Mikaela will die. Mana tahu the next scene, her body was perfectly unhurt. Then during yumcha time, we joked about whoever guy that notice this flaw would be looking at Mikaela’s boobs. Kinyu came late for the yumcha session and we asked him whether he sees this flaw or not, he said, “yalor yalor, her body shines during the explosion!”. We ejek him since then.

There are two mind set before you watch this movie:
1) Enter with no expectation: come out with satisfying mode like PY.
2) Enter with high expectation: come out with disappointed mode like me.
Why I didnt talk about the storyline? It was because the storyline was crap. No point talking about it. Anyhow, I will go and watch second time in cinema, need to get my satisfaction back, throwing out all my expectations.
And please let the transformer transform slowly can?
