We were fortunate to crack the nod for the UK Premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

"It is with great pleasure Paramount Pictures invite you to the UK Premiere of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen.

In aid of Starlight in association with Sky Movies HD on 15th June 2009 at the Odeon Leicester Square, London.

In the highly-anticipated Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) again joins with the Autobots against their sworn enemies, the Decepticons. Michael Bay directs from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger & Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman.

In attendance will be director Michael Bay plus the stars Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Tyrese Gibson and Josh Duhamel. This epic event will take place on the evening of Monday 15Th June in London's Leicester Square."

Being a little over the expected age limit for Transformers and not being a fan at all. I was completely blown away by the first Transformers film (incidentally this was Michael Bay's finest film to date). 3 Other Blockbuster releases this year were really good i.e. Terminator Salvation, Star Trek & Watchmen. So I was really quite keen to see the TROTF. Plus the Leicester Square Odeon has the best cinematic sound in the UK combined with the special effects this was going to be a pretty good evening.

The evening was a spectacular star studded event. With appearances by; Shia LaBouef, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Jasmine Guiness, Danielle Lloyd, Tyrese Gibson, John Turterro,VV Brown,Michael Bay,Matthew Marsden, Ramon Rodriguez, Sam Branson, Bianca Gascoigne, Kate Walsh, Aston Merrygold, Ortise Williams, JLS, Sarah Cawood, Danny O'Donoghue, Ozwald Boateng, Dizzee Rascal, Beverley Knight, Tiny Iron, Jamie O Hara, Lemar, Phillip Taylor and Bumblebee

In the video you can see the backs of Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson and if you place your eyes as close to your computer screen as possible and squint Megan Fox at the far end of the Blue Carpet.

I really wanted to enjoy the film. But ultimately it is aimed at a younger audience and more in line with the Transformers toys target market. For many of the wrong reasons I did feel like I had just watched a George Lucas film.

But it is big, loud, has lots of big robots fighting loudly and is quite the big screen spectacle. It is really a great Saturday matinee kids popcorn flick. The special effects will not disappoint.
