I like the cartoon movie much much more than the live action. The problem with the live action is Michael Bay not staying true to the origianl Transformers. They had too sharp of angels too busy. They were square and smooth keep it simple the way it was meant to be. Not a fan of the way they looked in fight scenes too...too many close up shots not enough of the actual fight.

I dunno... those long, drawn out sections with the human/non-tf storylines drag for me like a motherfu**er.

Agreed about the Decep's screentime.
Just left 'em feeling like generic monster villians when they were on screen.

Mind you...thats quite fitting of their design.

I enjoyed the movie...but i still see no reason they could not have made optimus the proper rig..i mean they are still out there on the road and god knows why they just did not use the rig from the original.....i did not like all the sharp angles...and the decepticons did not get enough screen time.....megatron and starscream looked to much alike......all in all i did enjoy the movie and i look forward to the sequel

The transformers should have had more time period.
And the humans less.

The pesky critters ate up all that precious screentime.

Mind you, even if there was more battle, we wouldnt have been able to see it due to the camera being all over the place and too close to the action anyways due to Bay's 'shitness.'

I recently got to watch the movie in Hi-def.

I could nitpick it to death, but if you don't know anything about Transformers it is an entertaining film.

What there is to like about the movie, most people already know.

My nitpicks:

1. Product Placement up the A-hole
Some people love this stuff, unfortunatley for me I just finished film school, and after taking a film business class, I know that theres no coincidece that when that Aulstrailian blonde hot girl put that Panasonic memory card in the slot, its logo glisten in the light. Which brings me to the next point.

2. Aulstrailian blonde hot girl
I don't even know her name? Or the black dude that helps her. Is the president's name just Mr. President? All three of those people had hardly point in this film

3. Opening monolog of the cube
The major plot device in this movie is explained in a seriously vague monolog. Just say this imitating an Optimus voice:

"In the begiining there was the cube. We don't know where it came from, or how it works. So just deal with it. And don't forget to drink Mountain dew and buy an Xbox 360."

i liked alot about this movie but a few things totally mucked it up for me...

i'll start with what i liked.... i think the soundtrack was good and storyline was kinda sufficient. special effects were great and the transformation sequences (especially optimus) were awesome.

Shia did a good job of playing Sam and Bumblebee was done pretty well...

stuff i think messed the movie up... as a previous poster said, Megan Fox's character just had no part to play in the story, sure she's ridiculously hot but i'd buy an FHM mag if i wanted to stare at hotties, this was the transformers movie and her character did absolutely nothing for the plot and direction of the movie.

now my two major criticisms of this movie are:

1. the american soldier taking out a way cool decepticon, that was just plain lame... this reduced the awe and image of the transformers as a whole, i don't understand why they did this... ironhide vs this decepticon would have been so much cooler, the movie's name is transformers after all, "not the US Army" ... a face off between an autobot and this decepticon would have been brilliant, but then for some reason the autobots just dissapear off the scene for a while... a bit lame tbh

2. probably my biggest gripe concerning this movie was the megatron and optimus fight... so optimus arrives late for the fight which was cool cause it allowed him to make a grand entrance, his transformation here was the coolest seen in the movie (IMO)... the way he makes his entrance and the tension between him and megatron leads you to beleive that this is the fight that will decide who wins between good and evil, instead megatron pounds optimus from beginning to end with optimus having like 0 chance against him. why say stuff like "one will stand and one will fall" and "if i can't defeat megatron" if he had like no chance at all? this kinda mucked up Optimus' image IMO, he's way too weak compared to megatron.

enjoyed the movie, but as i said... the muck ups they made were too big to overlook. hop they do a better job of part 2.

Man you are 100% correctamundo.

More or less every scene in this movie damaged the TFs integrity.
The entire US military unloaded EVERYTHING short of nukes on Megatron for like five minutes in that fortress siege in US marvel #3 or 4.

Not. A. Scratch.

This is why we needed the Autobots to protect us against the Decepticons in the TFs story.

All Bay had to do was remember that.
But nooooooooooooooooooooooooo.........


The reason for the US soldier taking out decepticon, along with other bullshit exaggerating the effectiveness of the US human forces against the decepticons was the same reason that the transformers had to all be GMC and military vehicles that failed to resemble the characters:

Bay sold the movie out to the US military in exchange for the propagandic advertising space within and use of their (and GMC's) vehicles..

Thats why you are treated to a very shiny movie featuring Human plotline irrelevance and product placement with a smidgen of robot action instead of a movie about the TFs we all knew and loved.

Should have called it "The USO show..!!!"
The tag line review would more honestly be:
'Sam Witwicky's teen problems occasionally featuring some robots who could just as easily be Gobots for all the care taken in writing/designing them.'

But as long as they could rape the name Transformers for every penny without having to make effort to actually be a transformers movie, then why not...?

And they'll be taking your money for it again for sure in the sequel.

How sick does that make you, the genuine TFs fan/paying movie goer feel..?

I'm alright with paying money to see any sequels. Because, G1, to me, is its own thing that could never be tarnished in my opinion. I keep it secluded from everything. These movies and animated shows are basically loosely based if not, loosely inspired by the G1 saga. They'll never be able to come close to what G1 was and still is. Let alone the fact that I consider myself too young to fully admire G1, I grew up with RiD and it's characters.

I entered the theater expecting an action flick, and it was good. Not the greatest thing ever, but good.

It's like Aliens, I thought the second one was great, the first one to me comes in closely at number two, and everything else to me is just an action film loosely based on the Alien mythos.

I thought the film was perfect in almost everyway...cept physics errors, of course.


I thought every last bit about the Transformers was wonderful but there are problems.


If they could process everything so fast, like that, then the fights would be so absurdly fast it would be rediculous. DBZ shit...if they could move themselves like that. Fights between two Transformers wouldn't be human brawls...they'd be rediculously fast chess matches that slow mo would only reveal.


Also, the Cube losing mass is just fine. It's supposed to be this uber cube of almost magical ability...so it having what seems like mystical mass losing cube is okay to me.


I thought the....


Wait...to be continued. Have to go home.
