Critic Review - New York Post

I challenge you to name another movie about an alien robot come to save the world while disguised as a yellow Camaro. Isn't it just an intergalactic Herbie the Love Bug?

um.. dude. Herbie wasn't a yellow camaro from outer space. The New York Post needs to get someone who can write something intelligent.

its a movie about vehicles that turn into giant robots. What sort of film was you expecting?

The fact that it Has not been done before makes it more original.

I love that the majority of those commenting can not get out a grammatically correct sentence, yet challenge this man's writing.

Transformers was a mediocre film with a mediocre story line. Deal with it.

I don't ever recall Herbie transforming into a mouthy robot at 70mph to fight a giant robot tank... Transformers is a film that was never intended to enlighten or inspire social change. I think WAY too many critics are taking the film WAY too seriously. Review something for what it is, not what it isn't. You can't hold up an effects-heavy adaptation of a Saturday morning cartoon next to the works of Pekinpah, Truffaut, or even a mildly grounded drama and say, "You know, Transformers just doesn't have it." Get over yourselves. Quit being pretentious, let go and enjoy the ride. Transformers may be mediocre, but it's a hell of a lot of fun. "Deal with it."

I challenge you to write a review that doesn't make me vomit in my mouth a little from having to digest all the crap you just spouted onto the internet. It's a movie about robots that transform... and um... yeah. It's based off a comic book. What kind of Oscar worthy movie experience were you expecting? It's Transformers for god's sake. This reminds me of that incredibly retarded review of X-Men I read a while back that got a bad review because the reviewer simply thought, "Where's the science in it?" IT'S BASED ON A COMIC BOOK!!! I fear that the intelligence in this world amongst the human population is taking a very sharp decline.

I have to agree with any post that states this is fiction not reality stop trying to combine the two.

Personally I think if you never read the comic, read the book, watched the original, saw the cartoon, or have any clue of the subject matter; you should not be allowed to review any movies.

First of all do not write a review if you don't know what your talking about " Mr New York Post". Transformers is not a in your words " An Intergalactic Herbie" it is a classic cartoon turned into a amazing action film. I challenge YOU to name me a better cartoon turned movie sir.

I really love how critics nowadays bash movies for sake of being afraid of enjoying for what it really is, a science fiction fantasy movie. Just another guy hating on a movie because it isn't realistic

It's not a car, but I'm pretty sure the magic school bus was an alien robot :D

Just putting this out there--- Bumblebee, no, ALL Camaros are ten times as awesome as The Love Bug. Just sayin'.

Oh, and this movie was awesome. It deserved at least a 75%.
