This past weekend the film’s gross was over $42 Million dollars and the movie’s gross to date is a bit over $293 Million dollars.
Here's one review: "In the highly-anticipated "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) again joins with the Autobots® against their sworn enemies, the Decepticons ®.
Michael Bay directs from a screenplay written by Ehren Kruger & Roberto Orci &
Reviewer Todd Gilchrist says of the film, “I can honestly say that as a film critic and lifelong cinephile, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen may be the most movie I have ever experienced."
"Michael Bay, condensing the cumulative total of the spectacle from all of his seven previous films into one unwieldy, gargantuan opus, has exceeded even the possibilities of sequel-driven "moreness," combining his own muscular, high-gloss sensibility with the conventions of blockbusters past, present, and probably future to create a monolithic action masterpiece that feels destined to be the biggest movie of all time.”
Wow. That’s a big endorsement there Todd my boy.
He goes on to say, “despite this film's raison d'etre, which is to be a piece of exhilarating, idiotic escapism; there isn't a single frame of film here that exists to convince audiences that anything in Revenge of the Fallen is, or is even meant to be realistic.
Rather, the film truly exemplifies Hollywood's belief that in blockbusters, more truly is more, be it a stake-raising death toll or just the allotted screen time for characters whose comedic potency is inversely proportionate to a lack of it.”
