It has the same vibe as the first one; clever humor with lots of adventure and action. At some points, although it was really funny, it felt like the humor didn’t mesh into the rest of the movie, it was just stuck in there.
I didn’t like that the transformers became more human-like. They spoke English to each other and new ones acted and looked like humans. It made for more humor, but it just wasn’t consistent with the world these movies created.
I liked learning more about the origin of the cube and the transformers race, which was part of the mystery being solved. Overall, it was just as fun as the first, so if you’re a fan of the first, I’d say this one is worth seeing on the big screen.
