    I thought this was one of Michael Bay's more tolerable films. I was wrong. Maybe in comparison to the sequels, but I'm not willing to give nine hours of my life to those.

    The spectacular beginning of a now-awful franchise. There is a determinedly excessive amount of would-be comedic elements that are completely unnecessary and it's a little overlong (the sequels didn't learn from this), but there is no doubt that the CGI effects and action sequences are stunning and justify their rampant overuse (in this film at least). Probably Michael Bay's fourth best film behind The Rock, Bad Boys and Pain & Gain, so it's in good company at least.

    Michael Bay's Transformers is a classic example of "it's so bad it's fun."

    Much better than the sequels. But still lacking any depth, emotion and purpose.

    And as for, Megan Fox... Not even her glutes and bosom can make me love this shallow, admitingly somewhat enjoyable, popcorn fodder.

    P.S. Her glutes and bosom aren't even that great in the First place!

    'That's stupid. That was a stupid line. "There's more than meets the eye with you." Stupid.'


    If Transformers was meant to be anything more than the above, it failed calamitously. To be honest, if it was meant to be the above, it didn't do a great job. There might be some room for a film which bridges well executed and interesting action sequences with somewhat flimsy layers of actual story, but Michael Bay…

    I didnt think it was as good as some people discribed it to be the effects are great and Megan Foxx is gorgeous but her acting bad and I can't stand Shia Labeouf.

    I promised myself in 2009 that I wouldn't attempt to return to the Transformers (ROTF killed it), but with another chapter of the neverending franchise recently released and my interest in reviewing the franchise, The Movie King returns to the world of the Autobots. I admit, when I was a kid and when it first cane out, I loved this movie. Maybe not as much as Star Wars or Harry Potter, but this film WAS awesome. But nostalgia does not…

    Transformers are nerdy and Michael Bay is not a nerd, from the dripping sex glossiness by way of Megan Fox, to the boyhood fantasy portrayed not as an intergalactic fight for planetary democracy, but as a social echelon booster: Transformers giving Shia the kudos necessary to win over his more muscle bound comrades and the curvaceous female arm candy. It's not really the type of daydream shared by what I perceive to be Transformers's niche audience - it's the type…

    Ok, maybe not that stupid.
