It is so bad. So, so, so bad. For God's sake don't waste your time and money on this absolute pile of **** film. dfegad

Mind you - what did I expect from Bruckheimer?

Bruckheimer??? Transformers is a Michael Bay film. Haven't seen it, yet...but all of my friends that grew up watching and playing with Transformers (like I did) have loved the film.

Is it at least as good as the Great White videos he did?

freaking great movie!!1

my only criticism was the fukin noise when they transformed. its fro the cartoon and the producers want it loud. so it sounded cartoonish of course.

and optumus prime transforming took too long, everytime.

but tose things are minor. the movie rocked. !!!

That was the ONLY good thing about the movie... Megan Fox is incredible - I'm a total sucker for dark hair and blue eyes.

She is the reason I only went for a drink after the movie instead of seeking out and murdering the director.

I think Bruckheimer produced and Bay directed. FVCKERS! DIE DIE DIE

.... OK calming down now.

I'll never forget the moment one of the Autobots said 'my bad' and folded his arms in a kind of 'I'm hip-hop and kool' kind of way. I slapped my forehead and felt so embarrassed I nearly left the cinema. I wish I did.

Lol, I thought it was pretty bad too. I thought the editing/directing was quite bad and I felt it didn't flow too well.

Yeah I didn't like that but you have to admit it was badass when the one autobot popped his lid and pissed on those agents. That was sweet. And Megan Fox was a fox for sure! Can't act worth a damn though.

I think this is a couple of years old by now, but anyway:

The whole film is a giant GM advert and the script is probably one of the worst in the history of film making.

The first 15 minutes were great - everything I wanted to see happened in the first 15 minutes. After that, the film became a gelatenous sludge of crap jokes, crap acting and horrendous attempts to make the Autobots 'cool'. The part where we're supposed to feel sad for the yellow one as he gets captured by the army made me laugh, as did the wretch-inducing music.

Definitely in my top 5 worst ever movies.

Considering how far 'Transformers' came from this trailer (originally used to pitch the film), I think Bruckheimer did an excellent job;

Ah - It's my own fault - I should have seen it coming. I just honestly didn't expect it to be THAT bad. It seemed like the script and story were written by a bunch of corporate execs in a boardroom using the 'Book of Movie Cliches' as a manual. Real lowest common denominator stuff.

I used to love transformers when I was a nipper.

I loved the movie. I am all about the Transformers. If someone thinks that is the worst movie ever, you need to go to the movies more. There are true pieces of **** out there.

I liked it, but did anyone else notice that the "black" transformer was the first one to get killed? These movies are so racist these days, like when Spiderman turned black he was suddenly a really good dancer?

Man I feel really sorry for you to draw those types of conclusions. Despite what you've been told, not everything revolves around race; unless YOU make it the case.

Just to refresh your memory here is the scene..... YouTube - Optimus Prime vs Bonecrusher Fight!=

The transformer that gets killed is a sandy color named BoneCrusher. http://static.flickr.com/56/158237928_1d1626a90c.jpg

Then again the director is white. The film must have some racist qualities.

That was a JOKE. You know, I almost didn't post that, but I thought "no, these are smart people, they'll get it". What, if I don't put a smiley after it nobody can tell I'm kidding?
I was actually talking about Jazz, because he breakdances and uses slang. I forgot about Bonecrusher. Which wasn't hard considering he didn't have any lines.

No, I'm very quickly realizing most of the people on this site have zero sense of humor. I made a very slight joke or "knock" toward a member and got 5 pages about how I'm immature and just try to hurt people with my negative attitude and "snide and rude" remarks, which weren't anything close to that. There are some very sensitive non-humorous people on this site. Most on here are pretty damn cool though.

O god, that sounds really bad. Not many movies can bridge the gap between adult/child and keep both viewers interested. By the sound of it, 8-12 year olds are the target audience.

Sucks. I hoped it would be dark and menacing like it appeared in commercials.

I'll wait for it to show up on HBO.

If all of your jokes are that bad, I'd definitely go with the smiley face thing.








***smiley face added so you will know I am joking.

Yeah - but the point is this... most kids who were into Transformers in the 80's are now in their 20's and 30's. This film really was made for 8-12 year olds and I was seriously disappointed.

It also seems like they were targeting 16 year olds who were looking to buy a new car... buy a Hummer! Buy a Chevy! Hell, just make sure you buy a GM car!

.... and while you're at it, buy an Apple Mac... and a Nokia.
