    Very good intro to a series that unfortunately went downhill fast.

    I don't uderstand the hatred for this movie. It's got everything that previously praised summer blockbusters had, yet here they are criticized. Laughs, heart, action, explosions, and unbelievable scenarios. Sounds like Top Gun, Terminator, Indiana Jones, and Rambo. When did we become so cynical and demand so much more from our summer movies?

    Michael Bay's divisive take on the Robots In Disguise mainly works thanks to its fantastic action and CGI, along with mostly stellar performances despite some letdowns from its middle-of-the-road screenplay.

    This movie is good fun. That's all it is, no more, no less.

    The human characters are mostly unlikable and completely unnecessary but the focus on them almost unhinges an otherwise exciting and well-made action extravaganza.

    I suppose, now that we live in a world where four of these abominations exist, it's hard to imagine anyone else besides explosion mongerer Michael Bay directing them. There might have been a time when this franchise sounded like a good idea, I'm hard pressed to remember that time.

    The first Transformers film manages to be mindless entertainment for a grand total of about twenty minutes, scattershot throughout the nearly two and a half hour running time. The remaining period…

    A film for two generations missed the mark...the script seemed written just for the 8 year olds, an area Pixar had previously shown the way how to engage different age groups...CGI-tastic interests, story generally lumbers..but hang on.. Fox is checking out something under her bonnet...rest of the film goes by in a dreamy haze

    Michael Bay takes the helm for this big budget live-action adaptation of some of the coolest toys from my childhood.

    It's one race of robot aliens who can transform into various vehicles and things against another, and it's on Earth and humans get involved, and, despite being forced does try to make things a bit more emotional for the audience. I'd be happy if there were no humans in the movie, but if I really…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    Transformers was my gateway to Michael Bay, I may have not realised who he was at the time, but the name did stand out. It was most likely because I have seen the film a number of times; it was the go-to pleasure movie of my early teen years, constantly craving to see how these toys that I know came to life on the big screen. The flaws didn’t become apparent to me until I had…

    This looked great on blue ray -- really crisp -- and helped me to understand the later Transformer movies that I'd seen better.

    Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is an average high school loser just trying to appear normal. This mission is thwarted when he discovers the new car he bought is actually a shape-shifting alien robot trying to find a legendary cube of unlimited life-giving power. Sam has to help his new robot friends fight their robot enemies and retrieve the Allspark before it's too late.

    I have never cared about or for Transformers. It's a nice idea for a toy I guess,…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    however much i try, i'll never really like Michael Bay's films.
    The main issue here is not that it is pure action; on the contrary, i can certainly enjoy a decent action movie once in a while; there's just something satisfying about watching everything explode on a friday evening after a long day of work. it's not even the stereotypes or the sometimes childish jokes; they're what you expect to see in a film like this.
    And i'm surely not…
