    Even more ridiculous than it sounds. show more

    Yes, it's loud, explosive and silly, but it also perfectly embodies the concept of a summer blockbuster with its simple good-guys-vs.-bad-guys plot, cheeky humor and flawless special effects. show more

    For almost two hours of car chases and car wrecks and extraordinary animated transformation sequences that meld fluidly with live action, the welcome mat is out for Michael Bay's cheerfully dopey saga. show more

    A classic Michael Bay mega-movie. Interested in plot and character development? Move along. You're blocking the view. show more

    Transformers is a wet dream for fanboys, with vehicles that whiz and whir into alien robots, spectacular sci-fi stunt chases, glistening military hardware, overheated computer software and brainy, hot girls who love Popular Mechanics. show more

    Everything comes down to an epic battle between the Transformers and the Decepticons, and that's when my attention began to wander, and the movie lost a potential fourth star. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    The most surprising thing about Michael Bay's much-anticipated, blockbuster-bound Transformers is how funny the movie is. show more

    Grab some popcorn and make a pit stop, then sit back and enjoy it. You signed up for a movie about giant robots. show more

    The energy never lets up, and two committed, unfussy leading actors are an improvement over other summer flicks. show more

    (alot of you forget to add a raiting, so you are giving it 0/5 for users) This movie was okay. The end was stupid. There was no explanation for why the main character had any reason to presume that Megatron had a cube-destroying chest thingy. The main character is also - annoying. He is a horrible actor. Just... 3/5

    Have any of the reviewers actually seen this movie? To refer to it as laughable , sub-bar and amateurish is a compliment far beyond any it deserves!
