Transformers leaves very few blocks left un-busted.
| Original Score: 4/5
hat was delivered will no doubt send merchandising sales spiralling into orbit, but sadly at the cost of countless brain cells popping through after nearly two and a half hours of tedium.
| Original Score: 2/5
Transformers delivers on its promise of stunning visuals and well-crafted action sequences, but it's not remotely worth the slog it takes to get there. Once the novelty of the robots wears off it's hopelessly insipid.
| Original Score: 3/10
Bay, of course, can't resists temptation to use as many explosions in the film as possible
| Original Score: 5/10
Morphs from Army-enlisting ad to toy ad (on its way passing through a panoply of car ads, computer ads, beer ads) without ever becoming a movie
Thank god the Transformers speak primarily in proper nouns--if they hadn't shouted "Optimus! Megatron!" every time they struck a blow, I'd have no idea what was happening.
| Original Score: C-
Transformers is a rollicking, rousing experience.
| Original Score: 3.0/5
For the bot-neutral rest of us, two-and-a-half hours of mostly incoherent special effects may be a bit much.
It is a teenage boy's wet dream. The girls are insanely hot, the lead is awkward/funny and the action sequences are top notch.
| Original Score: 8/10
...if you are an adult and not already a fan, you may find the movie more than a bit long, loud, and frenzied.
| Original Score: 6/10
Come to think of it, I was pretty stupid when I was six years old. So is this film.
Director Michael Bay's bigger than life version of the cartoon I grew up loving pretty much ruined one of my favorite childhood memories.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Although it strives to appeal to the whole family, it winds up emerging as a kiddie flick on steroids - a big-budget, effects heavy, feature film version of a Saturday morning cartoon.
Transformers is the best action movie I have seen since The Matrix.
| Original Score: 5/5
'Transformers' is a loud, unsophisticated testament to the visceral thrills of effects-driven mayhem.
| Original Score: 2/4
An overachiever of a film that practically defines the term summer blockbuster.
| Original Score: B+
If you take Transformers with a grain of salt...you'll have a pretty fun time checking out both the robotic (transformers) and human (Megan Fox) eye candy
| Original Score: 3/5
When Transformers is going strong early on, it's the grandest -- in every sense of the word -- entertainment in years.
| Original Score: 3/5
The action scenes are too chaotic to be exciting.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Audiences are liable to be in a state of utter bewilderment.
| Original Score: 1/5
