Consensus: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a noisy, underplotted, and overlong special effects extravaganza that lacks a human touch.

The movie is like the play date from hell, the kind where a crew of children reduce your home to rubble and conduct endless bouts of loud war on the living-room floor while you ponder the propriety of opening a bottle of wine.

Much of the movie is computer-generated hash, weightless even with nonstop BOOMS and METAL GROANS and THUDS.

If Bay has one consistent artistic inclination other than the lowest common denominator, it's his obsession with fascistic imagery.

It adds up exactly as you'd think if you've seen a moving picture before; the motivations are simple while the laughs pound you about the head and face.

It is as if Michael Bay was saying "You think I've blown stuff up before? Ha-ha. Wait till you see this."
