Best Ebert Has Done It Again, Again: the Follow Up

This morning only first paragraph of his Transformers review was online. Now the whole thing is available. If only there were more movies as good as the last paragraph of the review:

Aware that this movie opened in England seven hours before Chicago time and the morning papers would be on the streets, after writing the above I looked up the first reviews as a reality check. I was reassured: "Like watching paint dry while getting hit over the head with a frying pan!" (Bradshaw, Guardian); "Sums up everything that is most tedious, crass and despicable about modern Hollywood!" (Tookey, Daily Mail); "A giant, lumbering idiot of a movie!" (Edwards, Daily Mirror). The first American review, however, reported that it "feels destined to be the biggest movie of all time" (Todd Gilchrist, Cinematical). It’s certainly the biggest something of all time.

Could it be possible that Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen will bring 99% of the world together in agreeance on at least one thing?
