I went and saw it today and thought it was really well done.  It was much better than the first, IMO and had a great time.

I did feel bad for all the parents that brought little kids though.

I saw the movie this evening and thought it was pretty good.  We found seats in the top third of the stadium theater because last time, we sat towards the front and had a tough time absorbing all the action on the screen.  I liked this movie more than the first.  Megan Fox was great eye candy throughout (lucky Wheelie).  There were lots of resemblance to the first movie in terms of action, fighting, and explosions.  This one had a bit more humor I think.  Good show.

I saw it last night (in DLP) and I enjoyed it.  The effects and sound were amazing.
I can see where some of the criticisms come from, but they didn't bother me.  The movie is big, loud, overwhelming, and most of all ... fun.

Good flick!  This will be the 09 Summer blockbuster IMO.  Not a masterpiece, but plenty of action and fun.  I'll probably go see it again this weekend, which is something I normally only do for Star Wars flicks.  I do feel bad though for all the kiddies in the audience - and there was a lot (thank god they were all quiet though).  Hopefully they didn't catch on to what the jokes meant or never heard those words before, but good times for the older folks.  Plenty of clapping from the crowd after the flick - something I haven't heard/seen in awhile.  Almost a packed 500 seat theatre on a Thursday afternoon.

$60.6 million for its first day.  Not bad.

Glad you liked it Mike.

I'm going tomorrow morning to see this. Thinking about making it a full movie day and seeing 3 flicks. Prolly Star Trek again. But I have no clue which movie I'd pick to see third. Any suggestions?

I guess one of the twins is voiced by the black hacker dude from the first movie.

According to a review up on AICN, both are voiced by the guy who does Spongebob Squarepants.

Actor Reno Wilson, who is black, voices Mudflap. Tom Kenny, the white actor behind SpongeBob SquarePants, voices Skids - is what I'm reading off the net.

I guess Reno just voiced Frenzy in the first flick...whoda thunk it?

OK, pencils down, I think we have a winner:

There is not a single line in that review that is not awesome.

Just got back from seeing this.  Enjoyed it for a summer movie.
