I think Michael Bay gets a lot of flak for weak story lines because critics are jealous of everything else he can do. Granted, for Bay’s normal story telling pace (ultra fast), there was one little distracting lull, but other than that, this is the epitome of a great summer movie. LOVED IT! Much better than the last one, and almost as good as the first. See it in 3-D if you can (the skydiving scene is amazing in 3D- thats what it looks and feels like when you jump out of a plane!)
