Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Yeah, I should have listened to all of the reviewers who said that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was bad. Especially this one from Pajiba.com.
I've always been the type of person that needs to learn lessons the hard way.
So who thought you could make a movie less compelling and less interesting than the 2007 Transformers movie? It would seem that Michael Bay heard everyone complain about the last one and listened to the complaints that there was too much Shia Lebeouf and that there wasn't enough of the robot aliens. He gave us more robots, but then still gave us too much Shia.
He still thinks we'd believe that a woman that looks like Megan Fox would even talk to a dorky kid called Sam Witwicky.
He also apparently thinks that if we see enough of Megan Fox's barely covered ass that we'll ignore the fact that the story is sloppy at it's best moments and barely ties together the explosions and special effects.
Does Bay think that the American public is stupid? He might be right since the movie has made nearly $300 million and counting.
Maybe Michael Bay is the reason the movie-going public has been ruined by bad movies. They expect less story and more spectacle with every big budget action movie and the progression of Bay's movies have followed that exact standard. Bad Boys and The Rock were a balance of spectacle and story and there has been less discernible plot in each of his movies since then.
Never have I seen a movie with so much action that left me so bored.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen gets a D.

Shooting and hooting is what the movie is all about. Decapitation, slicing slashing, who's the bigger robot, who got the G's who got the guns and the chicks.
