Movie Review: Toys don’t play as well in sequel

Oklahoman Modified: July 8, 2009 at 4:59 pm •  Published: June 24, 2009
With Mikaela and his irritating roommate Leo (Ramon Rodriguez) tagging along, Sam embarks on a globe-trotting race to save the world from the Decepticons’ planet-destroying plan, which includes elements stolen from "Star Wars,” "The Matrix” and the "Indiana Jones” films.

Some of the fight scenes are engaging. And the film does have a few bright moments from Rainn Wilson as a rock-star professor and John Turturro as former Agent Simmons.

But mostly, "Revenge of the Fallen” is as interesting as watching a 7-year-old boy crashing together his overpriced robot toys for 150 minutes.
