This move was a waste of time, it has no morals or positive roll models.

The Transformers are super cool to see, but the main characters are so STUPID. As stupid as main characters in action movies can get. Like, what the heck? So stereotypical. The nerdy and idiotic boy is thrown together with the beautiful and shallow girl and they save the world and fall in love while they're at it and all that yadda yadda yadda. Ugh.

Loved this movie. Others might have their own bad opinions about it. But for me the movie was very entertaining. I enjoyed it. I mostly like what most people hate anyway. And I hate what everyone else likes. Because most people wouldn't know a good movie it slapped them in the face.

It's not a terrible movie, but there should definently be more screen time for the transformers. I mean, it's their movie.

Transformers is a 2007 science-fiction action film based on the Hasbro toy of the same name. Directed by Michael Bay, with steven spielberg acting as producer, this movie sparked the 6 film, multi billion dollar Transformers film franchise. While I find the later transformer movies unbearably mind numbing and unenjoyable, there is something charming about this first installment. While the characters are often exaggerated tropes, I found many of the performances to be hilarious, including the (surprisingly) likeable Shia Labeouf as Sam Witwicky. If you came for an intellectual experience, this is not the film for you, and I think this film is self aware. It doesn't take itself too seriously, a trait not shared by some of its recent imitations. This is a film where you brain can take a backseat, and your eyes can indulge on excellent CGI rendered action, your ears on the corny jokes, and your heart on the relatable Witwicky. The plot is flimsy, but the action is sturdy. Go into this film without expectations, treat is as a rollercoaster instead of art, and you will come out having enjoyed the experience. 4/5 stars

This is the only good Transformers movie made, the second one is alright, the rest are horrible and boring. This movie has a certain touch that just makes it so enjoyable. The cast worked together amazingly and the cinematography was beautifully done. I loved that there wasn’t just one storyline happening, but multiple ones that all came face to face in the end. Shia Labeouf really did an amazing job with the character of Sam, as did Megan Fox with Mikaela. Even the music in the movie was perfect, it fit each scene and only made the movie better. There really is nothing bad to say about this movie other than I wish it never ended. 5/5 stars

Being the first Transformers movie, it was definitely something new. When I first saw a car transforming, I was perplexed. I had never seen anything like it. The CGI is incredible and looks ridiculously real. It is almost as if there were real robots used. The story was built up well and I was very interested throughout. However, it was probably because of the amazing CGI that I found the movie all the more entertaining. For someone who likes action, there isn’t too much, which is a con of the movie. The big fight happens at the end and it's somewhat unsatisfactory. 3/5

"Transformers, more than meets the eye. Transformers, robots in disguise." The jerks don't even use the theme song. Does it ever feel like all the comics/toys/cartoons from your childhood are being made into loud, bloated movies? Michael 'Pear Harbor' Bay directs with his usual bombastic touch, but no one expects subtlety here. Do you want to see big, sleek robots knocking the crap out of each other? Me too. Too bad this movie had to have a plot and characters though. It also could've done with some more transforming.

Optimus Prime: With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. And fate has yielded its reward: a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there's more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars. We are here. We are waiting.

Captain Lennox: So why Earth?
Sam Witwicky: It's the All Spark.
Keller: All Spark? What is that?
Sam Witwicky: Well, they came here looking for some sort of cube-looking thing. Anyway, Mr. NBE-1 here, aka MEGATRON...
[glares at Simmons]
Sam Witwicky: That's what they call HIM... who's pretty much the harbinger of death, wants to use the cube to transform human technology to take over the universe. That's their plan.
