According to Michael Bay at least, Steven Spielberg loved Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. As if that means all that much these days... We all still remember Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Steven.
Here's what Bay posted on his official site: "Steven Spielberg sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today. There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said 'It's awesome'. He felt this movie was better then the first - and probably my best, who knows - at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it."
It's hard to put too much stock into a report like this - what else was Spielberg supposed to say, "Well that sucked Mike. Thanks for blowing my $200 million"? I'm sure Revenge of the Fallen will be fine summer blockbuster fluff just like the first Transformers, and hopefully it'll even be a bit better. But how about we wait until someone without a vested interest in the production's success offers his thoughts before we start getting too excited?
