Managed to watch Transformers 2 : Revenge of the Fallen.
Really good, a lot of explosions and fights.
Like a lot of the new (well, movie wise) Decepticons....the Devastator, the composite Decepticon Constructicons machines that changed into the all things/stone guzzler. Ravage, the panther like robot and Demolishor...ultra huge robot in the Shanghai scene.
Loved the hints that the Fallen somehow managed to increase the humans intelligence....until the culmination in the pharaonic era in the Egypt.
However, not really liking the Autobot Twins. The goofiness of the Twins somehow reduce the movie's epicdom...well, like Jar Jar Binks in SW. In little bits, ok la...somehow by the end of the movie, cam nak throttle the producer/director'neck' for putting those characters in.
I would give 4 stars out of 5.
List of the Transformers in the movie.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
