Time Magazine has compiled a list of the 20 worst summer blockbusters of all time, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was ranked worst on that list, just ahead of 1999’s Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
The second of Michael Bay’s’ cinematic Transformers trilogy was released just 2 years ago to impressive box office results – the movie was the biggest draw of the trilogy and ranks 78th in all-time domestic ticket sales (adjusted for inflation), making it the only Transformers film on the top 100 list – but downright abysmalÂ reviews that have not improved in the 2 years since its release. Time’s list places blame on the movie’s confused, jumbled plot, but ultimately focuses the film’s scorn upon its helmer, Michael Bay.
Time also named ROTF’s sequel, this summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, as the 16th worst summer blockbuster of all time.
