The movie Transformers 2, with a running time of just over 2 and half hours is a shock and awe cinema which keeps people stuck to their seats. Director Michael Bay, after his tremendous success with Transformers in 2007 is back with another mind-blowing tale of massive robots with thrilling action in Transformers 2. It is an impressive display of special digital effects which make a must watch in multiplexes. People who want to watch it at home online or downloading it will certainly miss out on the digital effects and make it boring. The director shows off his talent for beautiful large screen composition as he sets up the film in 17000 years back story. Bay’s fondness for blowing up things continues in this sequel of the good versus evil robot fight- evil, alien Decepticon robots against a fractious coalition of civilians, soldiers and humanity-loving Autobots. A normal audience will have plenty of scope to admire the fast and furious pace with which the movie goes and numbs the senses within minutes of its starting. Actor La Beouf with his usual hyper charm, playing the character of Sam leaves for his college leaving his girlfriend Mikaela (Megan Fox) his best Autobot friend, Bumblebee and his robot-slaying past. But when Decepticons figue out that Sam holds the key to their survival they go about trying to kill him in spite of Sam’s protesting that he is just a normal kid. Juggling between human comedy and CGI-generated tragedy, the film takes a action packed tour which includes ocean canyons, Pennsylvania forests, Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian Institution and the Egyptian desert. Just like in the previous movie, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) has the last word amid the wreckage as the film’s most generous and loving character voices the optimization that man and machine can co exist in this world.
The film boasts of an extremely talented cast and crew against a backdrop of huge explosions and military firepower. More so is the fantastic and colorful wallpapers which makes for some of the best wallpapers from a movie. But again for people seeking to watch Transformers 2 online or by downloading it it’s a waste simply because without the effects the film has nothing in it. So stick to your multiplex seats and enjoy a fun filled ride of action and drama as it quickly unfolds.
