Loved, loved, loved the 1st movie. And before peeps say I'm blind-biased for mecha movies, note that I HATE the Transformers' movies past the 1st one by Bay.

Meh, not a big fan of the first one. The mecha just aren't very attractive. Will still watch it on rental though.

Story line does not make sense. They closed the portal and killed the aliens. How the heck can the world be over run by the monsters again?

Maybe it's a prequel. Or aliens from a different dimension, or space.

You do realize this is based on a movie where interdenominational monsters attack Earth while humans battle them in massive skyscraper height robots that are controlled by two minds that combine into one...

I'm SURE they'll find some reason for it to be "believable."
