My gods, did I loathe this film. It's gone foggy now - I saw it when I was twelve - but let me say this to Michael Bay: There is a difference between plot and special effects! Same to Roland Emmerich. Now, I hear Mr. Bay is a great person in life: my sister tells me that he found an online video of a lady throwing puppies into a river and offered ten thousand dollars to whoever found out who the lady was. All the same, he sucks as a director. Good person, bad artist. The opposite goes for Roman Polanski, I hear. He makes some pretty good films sometimes (The Ghost Writer; Rosemary's Baby), but in life he raped a sixteen-year-old girl.
I digress. I save my "F" rating for true bombs, such as Epic Movie (2007), but this movie did nothing for me. I may be young, but I know an awful movie when I see one.
Final grade: D
