    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 gleeful return to 20 years ago - with adult content, too

    I LOVED this movie. The Transformers were my favorite toy - nothing else could compete with them. While I don't have the original cartoon episodes (but will, someday), I do own the original movie. The upgrade features fantastic graphics and a soundtrack that mixes hard-rockin' tunes with orchestral works. The jokes had me doubled over with laughter as they were perfectly attuned to a modern audience, and having veteran actors like John Turturro and Jon Voigt were excellent casting decisions. Shia was superb as the high school kid turned hero/ally to the most powerful creatures in the galaxy. Megan Fox and the blonde Australian gal were absolutely gorgeous. As for the big guys, most were just as I remembered them. Megatron: tough as nails, always to be feared because he was so damn savage. Seriously, he could always take a tremendous beating and not really think anything of it. They even let him kill one of the main Autobots and take Optimus to fight school in this one (payback briefly issued in the forest in the next movie, of course). I also liked the idea to let him turn into a plane rather than a gun to be held by one of his underlings. Starscream? Still the quintessential sycophant when reporting to his boss, but otherwise very capable of f'ing up an Autobot's day in battle. Peter Cullen voicing Optimus was a masterstroke. Bumblebee was cool in a somewhat understated way - having to communicate with radio quotes rather than an actual voice. But the visual touches - the Autobot image in his steering wheel, the "Bee-otch" and disco ball hanging on the rearview mirror and the racing stripes and upgrade to a current-model Camaro were all fantastic. A complete rock-em, sock-em action/sci-fi roller coaster made even better with hip dialogue and virtually non-stop humor. Fun fun fun!

    Wonderful

    Wonderful

    This introduced a new generation to the Transformers and honored the Inner Child in many Adults. The Autobots and Dicepticons were alive, smart and individual. This gave Megan and Shia their careers, and the chemistry between them was irresistible.
    This was wonderful.

    Indestructable

    Do you enjoy an action packed film with incredible stunts? Transformers will always be an awesome movie because it¿s filled with action packed stunts, well known actors and it really did good in the box office. There were 3 movies in the series but this movie explains it all from the beginning because it¿s the first film. Transformers stars Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel. Transformers has a Sci-Fi and Action themed genre. It won an award from The Visual Effect Society and it was nominated for three academy awards for Best Visual, Best Sound and Best Sound Editing. It was based on the Transformers toy line that has been around for years. Transformers is filled with mind blowing stunts. One stunt has one of the army men getting swung around by a scorpion shaped robot. Another is when a police car keeps trying to run over Sam Witwickey (aka Shia). The Decepticons try to crush him. A really scary scene has sam running up a building being chased by Megatron then same falls off. Finally, Prime catches him. Some of these stunts kept you wondering what was going to happen next. There are well know actor in this series. Starting with Megan Fox she is well known for movies and sitcoms. Examples are Hope and Faith, Confessions of a teenage Drama Queen, and Jennifer¿s Body. Next we have Shia LaBeouf who started out on Even Stevens and Holes then moved away from family friendly roles. Examples are I, Robot, Constantine, Disturbia and Bobby. Last we have Josh Duhamel who started out on All My Children on ABC also he was on ABC¿s Las Vegas. He is married to a popular singer named Fergie. Josh has also been in music videos. Transformers did really good in the box office. It grossed over 700 million dollars. Even though it wasn¿t rated high by the critics it turned out to be a good movie. It had funny moments and even scary ones. Whoever bought a ticket was very lucky. Transformers is an awesome movie because it is filled with action packed stunts, well know actors and it did really good in the box office. Transformers is an enjoyable movie and very action filled. It had mind blowing stunts that kept you on the edge of your seat. It had people you have seen on your own Television screen. Transformers was an outstanding movie.

    Never personally met someone that didnt like this movie.

    And I have allot of picky friends. I was super impressed with the movie. Some cheesy parts but for the most part was not. And the main girl was no where near as hot as the blond with the accent.

    THIS MOVIE ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the epic of all movies,when I first heard of this movie I thought it would be lame and the only reason I saw it in theaters is because I am a car and technology nut.I saw it twice in theaters and Got the DVD when the first day came out and I have literly been watching it every week since, and in a few days I'll get the special edition DVD. Hope T2(aka)Transformers:Revenge of the fallen also Rocks as well Especially with a rumored ten new robots on each side Don't know if I can wait 11 more months.

    Amazing Cinematic Experience, but Poor Morals

    Transformers is an amazing feat of special effects and cinematography. With amazing scenes, perfect sound effects, and an excellent soundtrack "by Steve Jablonsky", it is a wonder to behold. Unfortunately, its moral content is rather lacking. Disrespect for parents and authority is promoted throughout -- by the movie’s protagonists. I know this is common in movies today, but this one went a bit over the top. Also, whatever people want to say about “It’s a PG-13 movie. What did you expect?”, everybody making this film knew that kids would be the main audience of Transformers, and there were several scenes in this movie that were too adult in nature, and that were not necessary. Also, there is a rather disconcerting underlying theme. What do the Autobots need to do? They need to destroy the Allspark, which is their creator. Now there’s a message and a half! “Destroy the creator, and the world will be saved!” All of these elements cause me to give this movie the rating I have given it. There are probably many people reading this right now, who are thinking, “All right. If you want morals, look someplace else! It’s a film, not a sermon!”. It is true that a movie’s mission is to entertain, and I must admit that Transformers did a very good job at that. But movies do have an effect on people. Thus, with so many other exciting movies that not only entertain, but also have admirable messages "The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, etc.", I give this movie three stars. ---Ryan Robledo, author of the Aelnathan

    Coolest robots I have ever seen

    I loved the Transformers movie. It might seem kind of wrong, but I actually liked some of the Decepticons more than some Autobots. My favorite transformers are Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Blackout, and Starscream. The final fight was the coolest scene in the movie. It would be so cool to have a transforming car, but sadly, reality won't allow it.

    Lots of fun. Good times

    Great action and animation. Sit back and have fun. If you find Meghan Fox unnattractive, you might as well cut your junk off because you are of no use to society. Save the rest of us and don't reproduce.

    Transformers the movie left me in awe. The movie contained everything an outstanding film should have. It was an action movie, a comedy, a love story, is great for all viewers over the age of 13. Ever since I was a toddler I have always liked Transformers the TV show. I like it so much I just had to go to the midnight showing of Transformers the movie. The 2-disc special edition is even better than the movie. It includes extra features, commentary, interviews with the cast and crew and much more. I highly suggest that you buy this 2-disc DVD of Transformers the movie.

    Spectacular Movie

    Let's put it this way - I was able to watch it three times straight in a row on a Saturday and I would have been more than willing to watch it a fourth time. My roommate saw it seven times in theaters alone - and this is a girl you can't get to pay to see a movie twice normally.

    This film absolutly sucks!!!!

    This film is supposed to be about transformers right? Why then is half of it about this teenage romance, a sam/mikalah harlequin romance that distracts from the film so much so that it is more about them than the transformers? You don't see them till like 2/3rds of the way through the film, and they are the true stars. Shia Lebouf does a good job as a nerd type of guy, but Meghan Fox looks like Karen Carpenter/Julia Stiles face with Michael Jacksons body and has as many tattos as dennis rodman. She and Lebouf had absolutley no onscreen chemistry whatsoever. The deceptacons play an even smaller part than the auto bots( the good guys of the film). Avoid this film at all costs
