I will go out to say that, a rather long time ago in another life time, I was somewhat interested in Transformers. I mean, what young boy at that time was not? Giant robots that beaten the crap out of each other? Well, overtime I grew out of that and as such, I found not one aspect of interest. Back in 2007 when this film came out, I still was not sold on it. When I first saw this film, I did think the effects were good, but that was it. Now going back and watching this film with the knowledge of films that I have, I realized that my original idea of the film still stands. Okay, this is going to be a short review so I apologize, but I have very little to say about this movie. For the direction, this film proves one thing: Michael Bay can not direct films. Yes, I do have a soft spot for him due to him directing the music videos that Meat Loaf was in, but for films, he can not. Okay, I will say that he can direct special effects and make them look pleasing to the eye. but other then that, he just can't. He can not have the actors act, he goes for the visual aspect, and he just makes the film loud and obnoxious. For acting, this film is terrible at it. Alright, I understand that the point of this film is to watch Robots beat the crap out of each other, but it would not kill anyone just to give a convincing performance so that we, the audience, can actually care about the characters! Now, Shia LaBeouf can, at times, be a terrific actor due to his performances in Holes, Even Stevens, and later on Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. But here, he just acts like he does not care. In his mind, he knew that kids and teenagers who do not know the difference between a good film and a bad film will cash money just to see things explode. But, his acting is not all that is bad. The only person who is worse in this film is the now famous Megan Fox. All I will say is that she has no purpose in being in this film. The only reason why she is in here is just for the sex appeal and to attract an audience of teenage/ collage boys to sit down and stare at her as she gives a stale performance but flaunts her body every which way. My advice for her would be to go back to acting school or take real acting lessons so that you can, at least, be worth the time of people who actually want to see acting. Next the script. It is nothing special. It is just tasteless dialogue, horribly written with only one thing in mind: promote the toys and make money. Yeah, that is what this film is: a propaganda film to have toys distributed. Well, like most of the time, this film fails. Finally, the last and only good part of this film, the score. Now, with music, I like it when a film has a great, epic score that just fits the film. While this film is a piece of crap, at least the score does redeem the film a little bit. Only thing I would have liked would be if there was a rendition of that classic Transformers theme that used to be on the shows. Overall, this film is great for the eyes (and sexual fantasies of twelve year old boys), but is not worth your time to watch.
