This was a crap movie that I will still drool over some of the demo material that they will showcase when I walk into Best Buy (the forest scene in particular).
Don't worry! You aren't alone. I have quite a few friends who liked the first as passingly enjoyable, dumb fun (like Small Soldiers
or disaster flicks). 100% of them detested
TF2. It was an insultingly written and acted movie.
The producers, the writers, the actors, and the director treated the audience like a bunch of retards (they even had two extremely dimwitted and unfunny Autobots that seemed to show just how little they thought of the viewers). I would have walked out in disgust, but the theater I saw it at didn't have a money return policy if you didn't like the movie. Come to think of it, I should have anyway... but Paramount already had my $10!
And I also spotted the less than stellar CGI integration with the live action. I think they were hoping people wouldn't notice all the cringeworthy story, dialog, acting, editing, camerawork, and SFX faults as they would be glued to all the hot buxom babes (especially Megan Fox) shot like MTV video bimbos. Plus... did you notice how often they disparaged Megan Fox as being nothing more than a good looking, shagadelic airhead in the actual script? Her character was developed the same way. Does Megan even understand how degrading that part was?
John Turturro should be ashamed of himself for being anywhere near this crapfest.
