Transformers 2-anmeldelser tikker inn

Daily Mirrror kaller filmen «a complex lumbering mess of a movie that is long on turgid backstory and short on tension, laughs and subtle acting», mens Total Film sier filmen «has much to admire. It’s at its best in early scenes showing Sam Witwicky trying to balance college life without hot girlfriend Mikaela (Megan Fox) and carrying a brain-frying secret that makes him key to evil robot The Fallen’s plan to wipe out the world.»

News of the World oppsummerer filmen som «stupid and proud», IGN synes den er «too bloody big. Epic, spectacular but unfortunately far, far too long; the film proves that when it comes to Michael Bay blockbuster movies, you can have too much of a good thing». Variety berømmer den f or energien, men tillater seg et tankekors – «with machines that are impressively more lifelike, and characters that are more and more like machines, «Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen» takes the franchise to a vastly superior level of artificial intelligence» Hollywood Reporter oppsummerer den slik – «Bay’s team of four editors stitch together smashing but meaningless images, though it’s as difficult to make out which machine is which as it is to tell what anyone is saying. The noise level; not helped by Steve Jablonsky’s relentless score, is super-intense and everyone yells lines at high speed. Because nothing they’re saying makes any sense, it’s hardly important.»
