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.

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%.
