I didn't think that it was that bad, in fact upon first seeing it I thought that it was a fun action flick just like the first one. However after buying the DVD and watching it a second time, and then buying and watching Hasbro's other movie that came out at the same time, G.I. Joe, I came to the conclusion that I can actually watch G.I. Joe in repeated viewings whereas with Revenge of the Fallen, I don't think that I can bear to put in my DVD player ever again.
