Now it's time to review their review: I call shenanigans. Basically every scene that is mentioned in this review is something from one of the trailers or from the 4 scene preview I saw during Toy Fair week in New York. The exception, of course, is the vague description of Cybertron at the beginning of the review. The reviewer comments on just about every controversial bit of information from the movie from Prime's flames, lips, Starscream, Megatron ...

Shenanigans. Shenanigans. Shenanigans.

Well you did see nearly 30 minutes of the movie, so that is a good chunk. he did mention little things here and there that we have not heard about quite yet and its not entirely unimaginable that it is legit.

It was more like 20 minutes. I'd chalk up the small couple of things that we "learned" from this review as filler to add to the review.

If you were writing your first review ever for a website, would you keep dropping the "f" bomb throughout your FIRST review of a movie that supposedly no one in the general public has seen yet? Maybe they hired Shia LeBeuof to write the review. He seems to get a lot of favorable plugs in the review.

Even if this is fake, which it very well may be, it still got me amped for this movie all over again. If nothing else, it reminded me that Bay can direct action like nobody's business. I hope that Starscream shows up more than just at the end, though.

I should elaborate on my post...

I don't think the guy was out-and-out Lying. However, I do think that since he only goes into detail about parts of the movie that we've already heard about, this review is a little suspect.

Still, it got me MORE excited(if that's even possible) about seeing this movie.

Its does make sense for him to do that though. We have known about these scenes, they have been spoiled time and time again. not every one wants everything spoiled for them so he "left out details" of scenes we havent seen so that when we do see the movie it doesnt feel like seeing a rerun since we already know exactly what will happen.

It talks about a "sword arm" in Optimus Prime. Energon axe, perhaps?

While I sent Bay the UrL address to verify it...I have no idea if this is legit or not.

The omission of several scenes/money shots worries me, but at the same time he does mention something that is not common knowledge.

I'll keep you posted when I speak to Bay later this weekend.

Yes, thanks are in order.

Now here's my two cents...

prepare for cries of “PLANT!”


I have no idea what that means.

Megan Fox (im sure that's no coincidence), I have no clue if she can act or not because I was fixated on her tits and ass whenever she was onscreen - pure sex (god bless you Michael Bay).


Ok, here's where I have a problem. I cannot take very seriously any person who says something like this. You're reviewing a movie about robots, not Playboy.

"girl pretty, big chest, me drag knuckles on ground, Prime has flames, Og like"

And that is how you not write an intelligent review of a film.

And that is honestly when I stopped reading.

I'm intrested in what they have to say, but I'm more intrested in avoiding spoilers this close to the release.

So I'll read this on 7/5(no I wont)

The guy nevre said he was a pro-reviewer, he stated a few times in fact that it was his first time and he was saying what was on his mind. Also aicn isnt known for its "ebert" level reviews or choice of words itself. Its merely an honest "impartial" recap of what he saw.

I put impartial in quotes because of the doubt is he is a "plant" or not.

btw a "plant" mean that he was told to write what he did and is someone from the studio.

After reading that I don't know what's funnier:

1) the guy types like a n00b thus making me believe he's 10 and not 28.

2) guy sounds like he's been on Dateline's "To Catch A Predator"

3) we already know this story thanks to the leaked script, and various information.

Besides, in June we'll know he's wrong thanks to IDW (probably better than the movie).

Thank you. Give me a break Skowl. You hate a guy just because he honestly states his thoughts on sex? Like Sunshine said, he's not a pro.

I don't call plant, and I don't call Shenanigans. Why is everyone so suspicious? Is this really common?

I predict it was real, and that the movie will resemble the remarks. Just because he talked about stuff that we've seen in the trailer doesn't mean anything. He talked about stuff I'd never heard about, so I'm guessing he saw more.

I'm buying it.

I say it's a fake one. He is 28 years old? He sure writes with lots of mistakes and curses a lot. Watched at Megan's breast? WTF? It's that how 28 year old guys act these days? He just reviewed the trailers. And what about Optimus's fish mouth? I thought that it wasn't official?

Read the review all over again. He said some of the effects weren't finished. Obviously they hadn't taken it out of the version he saw.


Give me a break everyone. Just because he only happened to mention parts that were in the trailer, doesn't mean that's all he's really seen. If you read more, you'll see things that weren't in the trailer, such as scene order, and characters' ways of acting.

He left out a lot of details because he didn't want to spoil things, since not everyone is a rabid, super suspicious fanboy who's read the script already.


Rodimus Cloud wrote:Watched at Megan's breast? WTF? It's that how 28 year old guys act these days?


Oh no, of course not. 28 year old guys hate looking at cleavage, and even if they did for some odd reason, they'd never, ever talk about it.

:roll:

Get off his nuts for talking about sex. I'm glad to read something from someone who's not an uptight prude.

It's not that he says she's sexually attractive, it's that he basically wrote:

"Hur hur hur I dunno who she is or if she can act because she has the boobies and I go into a vegetative state when I get an erection because my weiner is so huge it cuts the blood from my brain derrrr"... but I really don't don't find that surprising coming from someone who is so adamantly hot for Michael Bay.

That's how I felt. You can be an amateur film reviewer, and you can still be on an andrenaline high from seeing the film, but you can still be mature about it. When someone likes something because of T&A, I'm sorry, but they lose big time credibility.

The way I see it, if he is that easily impressed with a hot woman, then what he says about how awesome the movie is really isn't that impressive anymore.

But I understand the reality of why Megan Fox is in this movie. Face it, she's not there for her acting ability. She's there to do one thing, and that's to get guys into the movie theatres... problem is, the giant battling transforming robots should be able to do that just fine by themselves.

One thing you have to remember "Appeal to general audience" whether its big robots, explosions, TnA, dog pee jokes or product placement. You hit the biggest audience possible so that everyone can take something from this movie.

Me I like the TnA aspect as well as the cool cars that just happen to transform :P

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forums, but not Seibertron.com.

I think this guy is nothing more then most usual Moviegoers, albiet not an English major or Journalist.

I want to take the easy road and say fake, but honestly, I just think was a guy just really stoked he was able to see this much of the movie two months before it comes out.

He might have only seen an hour of footage, but just look at his reactions! If this movie does this to a casual fan, and he only saw what was finishes, JUST IMAGINE!

I can safely say, being a fan my entire life (I slept with Prime in my bed as a baby for Christ sakes!) that this review makes all this time bitching and moaning about designs and Micheal Bay, celebrating over Cullen and Old school nods, worth living through. This guy made me jealous he saw it before me, makes me angry I wasn't there watching it, like a big party I missed.

Look, I want this movie to surprise us all and just blow the top off of every theater it plays. I want it to bank Box office records and make Spidey 3 look like Bambi: The Musical. But i'm realistic and know that we, as fans, have generated enough heat and bad publicity, we actually ended up hurting the movie we all dreamed of seeing more then helping it. I know people, who have read these forums, tell me they won't see the movie until I do, cause they won't waste the money if it sucks. THESE ARE PEOPLE, FANS, WHO BEGGED ME TO KEEP THEM INFORMED WHEN I FIRST FOUND OUT AND TOLD THEM ABOUT IT!

My point in all this is, we have two months to go. The movie needs to do twice its cost to be seriously considered a viable bankable blockbuster property. I want sequels, lots of them.I think its time to take a different approach now. The approach is simple: This movie is done, we did what we could, and I think our voices were heard as much as they were going to be. So now, as fans, I think we should do what we can to spread the word that, though it prob won't be an oscar gem, its going to be THE action movie of the summer. I mean, lets be serious, its BAY, hes good at one thing, and he was given a huge canvas and the money to blow shit up to his litle hearts content, its like giving a drunk redneck a Rocket Launcher in a field of deer, HE WENT CRAZY!

I think the writers were the best we were gunna get, the director and actors the best that time and money would allow, and I think we got a pretty fair deal, IT COULD HAVE BEEN UWE BOLLE ( Stick that in your pipe and smoke it). The Effects look spectactular, the transformations mind blowing, and action as intense as anyone can ask for, what else can you ask out a movie that a few years ago the studios ran from like a Rapist that taught ethics!

WE WILL ALL GO SEE THIS MOVIE, AND AFTERWARDS SPEND THE NEXT WEEK COMING DOWN FROM IT! So what if this Guy only saw so much, like I think he did, HE SAW SOMETHING, AND IT ENERGIZED HIM THAT MUCH!! Imagine what the finished product is going to do!

Eh, could be legit. If he wrote the review after he saw it, we could attribute the nOOb typing and foul-mouthness to just being amped about seeing the movie. Legit or not though, I got all kinds of excited all over again for the movie.

I read the entire review. What about that review other then the dialogue between Starscream and Megatron makes you psyched to see this movie? Seriously, the only other things he mentions are different stuff blowing up. Constantly. I think it was a explosion reference every two sentences. That and the Deceptions being fodder. Then back to the explosions. He DID NOT say awesome fight sequences, great characters, great story etc. etc... just stuff blowing up "bay style", which I am not even certain what he means. Could he mean shooting an explosion from 15 angles and showing it over and over again so it lasts thirty seconds? And then he said it is cheesy but you somehow like the cheesy? WHAT?

Did I read the same review as everyone else? If he is a plant, he should be fired. Worst salesman ever.

If this is real, and for the love of god I hope it is not, then we should be worried. My enthusiam, which has been building and building just dropped...alot.

Exactly. I don't think he's a plant, I just think he seems like one because he's so enthused... and he's enthused because he happens to fall squarely within the 'lowest common denominator' they were shooting for. He obviously really enjoyed it but none of the things he seems so happy about really sound all that great. The decepticons being mere fodder, the cheesy humor, a 'glimpse of the Starscream/ Megatron dynamic', and perhaps my favorite of all: "The last 30 minutes is non-stop robot destruction- I honestly couldn't tell you everything that happened because it was just so damn awesome I had a hard time even keeping up." That's pretty much how I feel about every one of Bay's action scenes, barring the 'awesome'. It's not just that so much is going on, but the fact that he won't keep the damn camera in place for more than a few seconds so it's a struggle to figure out what exactly you're seeing.

No fair cutting and pasting But seriously amatuer or pro this guy is a A-Hole. his writing is pathetic. and something I can't unsderstand is if something is fake how can it get you psyced to see it. It's like your gearing up to be disappointed.

Well, if this is a legit "review", it's going to be everything I thought and expected to be, by reasons the reviewer mentioned:

1)"The movie overall is actually very funny, in a good way. Some really cheesy laughs that are more than tolerable, its got light hearted flavor throughout, but when its time to fight- they fight- Bay style."-Cardsfan34

Well, that's why I think it's just another lame but cool effect summer action movie, horray.

2)"The robot design change, in my opinion, was the right choice. When you see it you will understand. The boxy designs from the cartoons simply would not have worked, they would have looked stupid and old. OP mouth…..thats a different issue- it sux. Period."-Cardsfan34

I don't care if they're "boxy" or not. What I don't understand is their ugly faces, why so damd ugly, for example Prime's lips?...I never understand why Starscream is a monkey chicken face, and I will never care to buy this whole "evil alien vs good alien" looking game on the line of Transformers. It's stupid, and everytime I see Starscream or ice Megatron, I want to throw up.

3)"I really wish the decepticons, namely Starscream, would have gotten far more screen time. He doesn't show up till near the end. He TOTTALLY fucks shit up and is THE bad ass of the decepticons, but I needed more-"I've got a fever, and the only prescriptions is MORE STARSCREAM!!!!!"-Cardsfan34

Oh God no! I hope he stays a bad ass, but not looking like chicken monkey..... hell no, I really hope not. I hope his whole design, Megatron, and every one of the bots faces gets melted by a gaint cloud of acid.

But all in all, I'm excited to see the movie so much! :)

I'm going to wait for the movie to come out and see it for myself. Real or fake, it's kind of unfair that it's already getting reviews. Kinda kills the build-up for the movie, doesn't it?

It's not even a review. It's an opinionated collection of every bit of speculation+video clips put together by some 30yo teenager who needs to leave his parents' basement.

The part when he talks about the lips on OP is what you are looking for to nail this guy: as said by Bay himself, the lips were used in a European series of tests for commercials... why would they use European tests for an American made screening?? It just doesn't make sense. Besides i know what i am talking about, as an Italian born and raised i know that every movie from the US since WW2 was alway re-edited in Cinecitta' (Milano) for cutting and adapting it so that Italians wouldn't get confused by the different humor and cultural concept, and this process needs TIME that Bay definitely doesn't have if he wants to put out a screening this fast.

Just wait for the movie...

Bay said that it was test footage and that it wasn't Cullen's voice, NOT that he wouldn't have lips in the film.

I read that review last night and thouhgt it was pretty suspect striaght away.

there are two simple reasons why i think this

1. nothing the guy talks about hasn't been seen in trailers or mentioned online before.

2. the film doesn't get release for another 2 months. while I know lot of films do get test screenings he mentions that the effects looked pretty much finished. A major summer blockbuster that is effects heavy as transformers is will still have a LOT of effects work to complete at this point.

The guy is either just bullshitting or (more likely) from a PR company promoting the film via an indirect method.
THey're using Sector Seven to promote the film (and 'stop sector seven') this is just an easier and cheaper version of the ame thing.

Kinda read like the guy had just compiled everything that is out there into a review. Not much that was new there. Also some errors, like he didn't mention the ice scene near the beginning which I would find very unlikely to be cut.

Besides Bay made it pretty clear they were holding back a lot of the cool stuff from the trailers etc, this guy doesn't mention any of new material which should have blown his mind compared to the meager stuff that has been released, so sounds like BS to me.

You're right. The fact that he claims the film goes from a voiceover to the scene in Qatar does seem really fishy. I could see if they decided not to reveal Megatron so early in the film and cut that bit but I doubt it'd work very well if they throw it in as a flashback later on, which they'd have to do to explain how his grandfather gets the 'map'.

well, I read only a few paragraphs to make a dessision that this guy who wrote is is eather a 16-year old failing 12th grade english, a strung-out college student or a Retard. Neetless to say my brain turned to mush at one point and I could not continue reading. But the enthusiasm really did get my attention overall, so it's a sign that this movie will be very good, so i'll give him a D+ for enthusiasm of the subject. :grin:

I think he might be the real thing but doesn't want to add too many spoilers we don't already know about. Or perhaps it's a scam. Either way reading it got me even more excited about it.

Show me where Bay said that there would be no lips in the movie, because nothing I have read said otherwise. THe update from bay said it was not cullens voice. I seriously dont know where people see things between the lines and all of a sudden it turns into "omg prime really isnt going to have lips in the movie.
