It may be a bit late in the game to be pounding on our chests and touting the fact that Paramount Pictures has provided us with an exclusive image from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but we like exclusives so we’re just going to roll with it.
If there’s one thing I’ve applauded Michael Bay’s larger-than-life robosequel for, it is the fact that for the first time in the course of two movies, we finally get a real sense of scale for these giant alien robots. I first noticed it during my IMAX screening, in the forest fight scene that takes place in the middle of the film. For the first time on screen, these Transformers felt larger than life. And if this movie accomplishes nothing else, it certainly delivers on another brilliant technical outing for the animators at Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), who are the undeniable stars of the entire affair.
Anyway, I would still recommend checking it out this weekend in IMAX. Just a thought. Another thought is for you to take a look at the exclusive image we’ve received below, which shows Jetfire (the geriatric, but also sort of badass Decepticon turncoat whose alt mode is the always wicked SR-71 Blackbird) speaking with the usual human suspects, played by John Turturro, Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf and Ramon Rodriguez.
