The first Transformers film featured an Autobot peeing on a human. How has Michael Bay topped this act in the sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen? How about a giant Decepticon will giant steel testicles. Details after the jump. Possible spoilers follow.
According to Nick de Semlyen’s review in Empire Magazine, the giant Decepticon named Devastator, who is made up of six or seven constructicons, is revealed to have a pair of testicles, in the form of wrecking balls.
A notable moment occurs during the dementedly frenetic final act of Transformers 2. A robot-on-robot fracas is unfolding around Egypt’s Giza Necropolis, with Devastator, an especially massive mechanoid comprised of several construction vehicles, set on clawing its way to the peak of a pyramid. As it lumbers up the dusty colossus, a shot tilts up to its mid-section, revealing two wrecking balls dangling down. Yes, Michael Bay, the man who brought us cyber-micturition in this movie’s predecessor, has one-upped himself: Decepticon testicles.
I need to see how this plays on the big screen before I make any kind of judgement…
