Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
The sequel to the 2007’s Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen takes place two years after the first film and revolves around Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) who is caught in the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. While the first movie had an actual story, a lot of critics agreed that the sequel was simply a special effects extravaganza. “If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination,” wrote Robert Ebert in his review of the film. Despite its negative reviews, the film surpassed its predecessor at the box office, grossing a total of $836.3 million worldwide against a budget of $200 million.
