The movie itself kick's ass if you're into giant robot's duking it out over control of the Earth (and Universe!). Don't expect much in the way of plot, but you've read all that in the other reviews. I would recommend this if want to see Transformers 2 IMax version, plus it contains a few extra seconds of bonus scenes during the fight scene's. I couldn't tell you exactly what or where (I saw this in IMax at the theaters, then bought this version upon release). If you live in the U.S., pick this up at your local Wal-Mart, or ask a buddy stateside to pick one up for you. If you got a blu-ray player, even better!!!
Video: 1080p High Definition 2.40:1 aspect ratio and 1.78:1 for IMAX Sequences
Audio: DTS-HD-MA 5.1
As far as the IMAX Sequences, there is roughly about 5 mins. of them spread through different scenes of the film itself. Compared to The Dark Knight, where there is 7 Mins. of IMAX Sequences, People think that there is little IMAX scenes in this film because these scenes are spread apart which makes it seem like there is less.
In this film i think that there is a lot of footage shot in the IMAX camera considering that it costs 1 million dollars to film 1 min. of footage with the IMAX Camera.
Special Features: there is a whole other Blu-ray disc for the special features which contains several hours of special features which will make any transformers fan happy.
By the way in this version of the film Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Two-Disc Special Edition (Big-Screen Edition) Compared to the other Two-Disc Special Edition and the DVD, I have Compared them since i have both this version and the DVD, and i wouldn't call this version extended, but this film is 30 Secs. longer that the DVD or other Blu-ray disc version. Including small extended scenes in action scenes and in talking scenes.
Please let me know if this review is helpful to you, and if not let me know also so that i can learn to write better and more helpful reviews.
But let us not linger on the worm in the apple.
The movie would've done better by cutting 30-40 minutes off the top. The set up to Shia LaBeouf's leaving to college and scenes thereof did nothing to move the plot. His mother's escapades border more on the obnoxious than funny. By contrast, the last half or so shines beyond expectation with brilliant special effects and dessert battle scenes. Also consistently carried from the first Transformers is the wry humor- but we sorely miss Bernie Mac! John Turturro's reappearance was also a wonderful surprise.
The writers and director would be wise to take geography lessons- the locations made no sense to those paying attention, but that's small stuff.
So while you can't CGI talent (read, Megan Fox), you can CGI a fantastic effects driven adventure to hopefully eclipse the incidental talentless bimbo.
