Latest Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer out

The latest trailer for the Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen movie is up on YouTube and The sequel to the 2007 summer blockbuster features the original cast and a bunch of new Transformers.

The video tries to build suspense through timing and fast cuts, but it failed to engage me. The pacing is too slow, and there isn’t a crescendo of action at the end. Perhaps that’s the point: that the Decepticon counter-attack will be slow and methodical, but it didn’t make for an exciting trailer. I am glad the trailer showed more of the robots than previous trailers, especially the completely ambiguous trailers from the first film. Unfortunately, I still have a hard time telling the robots apart or even identifying where their heads are — and I owned just about every Transformer available and watched the television program and cartoon movie a hojillion times.

I will watch Revenge of the Fallen this summer regardless of whatever trailer I see, so they don’t have to “sell” me on the movie. However, they could have done a better job at making the 2:16 clip more exciting and more relevant.
