I’m sure this will be taken down at any minute, but I thought I’d risk it and post it anyway. What we have here is a leaked version of the new trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and it kinda looks like Bay hasn’t really learned any lessons from the original.
It has that same awkward dopey sense of humor that the original had, as it starts with Shia’s car dancing around to “I’m So Excited.” A little part of my soul died.
We here at MovieChopShop have gotten a lot of shit for giving Michael Bay a lot of shit and being heavy detractors of this movie, and as much as I’d love to cave and say “Okay, despite all my reservations, this looks pretty cool,” I just can’t. Because it doesn’t.
Sure, there are some fancy robot special effects–and that’s cool for awhile–but what else is there? Honestly? Is there anything else that’s fun and cool and well-crafted and gives me something to care about? Bay is a hell of a technician, but he has no business turning this two-and-half-minute trailer into 147 others just like it.
And I also don’t believe that Megan Fox would ever agree to a long-distance relationship with Shia LeBeouf. I don’t care what kind of robot his car can turn into.
I’ll let you be the judge. I’m sure I’m wrong. We’ll get a better-quality version posted of this as soon as one is made available. And if this one is no longer working, then I apologize.
UPDATE: It’s been a long time coming, but the trailer has officially been released. Find it at Yahoo Movies HERE.
