The Earth is caught in the middle of an intergalactic war between two races of robots, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, which are able to change into a variety of objects, including cars, trucks, planes and other technological creations.
What a movie, unsurprisingly it’s got a hefty 8.6 on IMDB, I would be surprised if it didn’t get into the top 250 pretty soon.
Yah so Bumblebee wasn’t a beat up VW Beetle, get over it 🙂 The Camaro rocked it, and they did pay homage to the original, if you notice Bernie Mac tried to sell a beat up old yellow beetle to Sam in the parking lot, it was the car that Bumblebee based with his door. His character was still the same too, brave – so it’s cool with me.
Shia LaBeouf was excellent as Sam Witwicky and held the whole film well.
And wow is Megan Fox hot, sometimes a bit distracting, not surprising that she was named #68 in FHM magazine’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006” supplement.
And the Transformers themselves, WOW, that’s all I can say. They were just so real, there was no point in the movie I had to suspend my belief as it looked fake…I didn’t have to tell myself “It’s just a movie”.
They WERE real, they were there, they were hiding under Sam Witwicky’s porch, it was flawless. The interactions between the humans and the autobots were superb, sometimes funny, sometimes serious and once even cute…
But somehow it worked.
And Megatron was one hell of a badass, I understand why they couldn’t use his original a form, a gun becoming a giant monster or NBE-1 as they called him…would be a bit far-fetched.
So his new look alien-space-fighter-thingy was extremely cool.
Within the first 5 minutes the movie had your adrenaline pumping, and it didn’t let go – then the car chase….ROCKING!
I wish they had Soundwave in though, you can read some interesting Trivia here and some justifications on why they did certain things the way they did.
Starscream was totally awesome, the way he transformed was just one of the coolest things ever.
My only real gripes were the fight scenes were a little too tightly filmed, meaning the action sometimes was just a blur on the screen as you couldn’t really see what was happened. It has been like that for a while though with action movies as it tends to make the action more intense. My other point would be how easily Megatron being the all-powerful Decepticon that he is, was defeated.
Say that though, this is definitely THE best comic book movie ever, and so far, I’d say it’s definitely the best movie of the year.
I give this a laser blasting 9/10 – I guess I’ll be going to the cinema to watch it again.
Some of the fighting scenes were a bit too messy. And before you can make out what was happening, It moves on to another scene but it’s just awesome, however. Maybe I’m just a bit slow.. that’s why.
But Transformers’ worth the watch and count on it I’ll be watching it over and over again.
Yes, it was a great movie, once is not enough, definitely need to watch it again.
And for those who are going to watch…don’t forget to wait till the end..yes, AFTER the credits 😉
the summer block buster that FINALLY arrives! All Hail Megatron!!! Oops… i mean, Autobots, ROll out!!!!!
better than 300? hmm.. it’s hard to say though.
dun care la, comic movies rocks!!
don’t really care what critics say…i love this movie to the bone. this movie pave teh way to a better sequel and it will surely gets better. but the most important part is, to get us all noobs totally hooked on it.
i love the part where they trying to disguise themselves as automobile right outside witwicky lawn !!!! ” guys, that’s NOT HIDING ~!!!!!””
now let’s see what harry portal has to say
If i remembered correctly, some guy from the star had a review on it and gave it A+ rating, which is like rare as most good movies get only A- or B+.
I was rather skeptical at first, but after watching it on 29th June, IMO this is like the best CGI movie i’ve ever watched.
The small details down to the small metal pieces on the vehicles during the transformation was just awesome.
Though it seems a little that the ending part where sam killed megatron with the cube was like a little rushed.
Will get an original DVD of this.
was definitely awesome. stim.
Heh megan fox was def hot hot hot!
the parents were like the same from American Pie — funny, but maybe their parts dragged on too long in some scenes.
the transformations were AAWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
There’s a comic book that shows the prequel to the movie.
To understand more, you should read it.
Arth: Yah totally agree, but it still worked and the action sequences were just great.
Moses Francis: Heh, I think virtually everyone I’ve spoken to who watched it wants to watch it again.
Mossie`Ol Chin: Indeed, finally a movie that can excite us!
spiller: Yah that’s a tough call, I’d say this wins over 300 though IMHO, it’s just better all the way through. 300 is fantastic too though.
terenceg: Yeah ROCK ON, Roll Out Tranformers 2 haha. Well Hairy Pothead? I don’t care..I stopped watching it long ago.
moonss: Yah that’s pretty rare, maybe it was eyeris? Haha. Yah I think I’ll get the original DVD too, it’s worth it.
suanie: Yah a bit annoying, but still funny hehe.
v0ices: Yah? Might have to check that out.
