    1984 fans, you will like it

    This movie has little to do with childhood memories of the Generation 1 group. Makes no difference though. This movie introduces the world to the concept of these characters, and it does it well for the general audience. Of course, this means that fans in their 30s who thought this would be a movie all about the way they think the franchise must be portrayed will be disappointed. Then again, I doubt anyone with such standards would ever be happy even if it copied the 20+ yr old cartoons word-for-word. That said, this movie is a blast and you should just watch it with an open mind.

    A reviewer

    It's true that the main characters don't have much on-screen chemistry but Shia is a good actor. They have to introduce the characters and how they affect the world as we know it so the general audience can follow along. Visually the movie is a treat although at times I thought they made Optimus Prime seem a little foolish. Fans of the original cartoon will not be disappointed - you can quickly get over the fact that they look nothing like the Generation 1 characters, since they are so likeable.

    This was a great movie. A breakthrough in CGI.

    I grew up watching the transformers cartoon and was never impressed with the animation. Specifically, I didn't like how the rules of physics were avoided and the blocky appearance of the characters however, the story was always the reason why I watched. This movie not only had a good story but also gave lots of eye-candy for people who wanted to see transformers really transform while obeying the rules of physics. What really impressed me was the brutality of the decepticons. The opening decepticon attack will be frequently played on my HD-DVD player at ear-bleading levels. The musical score is beautiful. This movie is a definet buy for true high-def fans. You won't be disappointed.
