    I just saw it yesterday and I think it's awesome! It's more than what I expected (althought I havent seen the trailer) Only parts of it outside the cinema. But I was really thinking at first if I would watch Transformers II or this. I think it was a good decision. But I would still want to see Transformers. I hope they will be there til next week.

    The rise of cobra needed much work. Cgi was very poor and one-liners were totally corny. The script absolutely sucked and the flasbacks were terrible.

  • The film is definitely better than I expected.

  • The cgi did need a lot of work. I did not believe the flashbacks were bad.

    Loved Rex. Best written character in the film.

    I haven't seen it yet, but I'm not expecting a lot from it.

    Sienna Miller in a leather catsuit will more than make up for the film's shortcomings though! 😉

    I expected it to be excruciating, but was pleasantly surprised. The CGI was sometimes painful as was some of the acting. My only issue with the flashbacks were the unnecessary date stamps, yeah kinda obvious this was four years ago.

    Still, it had just the right amount of cheese, tons of violence, and a decent story.

  • Its better shot than you might think. I was surprised, somewhat.

    So was I. Who knew? I am going to have to review it.
