  • 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.

  • For the bot-neutral rest of us, two-and-a-half hours of mostly incoherent special effects may be a bit much.

  • 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?

  • Films directed by Michael Bay are usually like being shouted at by a halfwit for two and a half hours, and Transformers is no exception.

Audience Reviews for Transformers

    This movie's better than the sequels. That's all I have to say.

    Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay team up for the exciting and action packed blockbuster Transformers. Earth becomes caught up in a war between two groups of alien robots that have come in search of a device that gave life to their planet. That cast includes Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro, and Jon Voight, who all bring a certain charisma to the film. But the real stars of the film are the special effects, which are amazing. And Michael Bay does an excellent job at delivering high energy action sequences that are visually stunning. The writing is exceptionally poor and the film goes on for far too long, but the action and the visual effects keep the audience engaged. Transformers is messy and cheesy, and sophomoric...but it's also a lot of fun and immensely entertaining.

    Don't bother. It's an incoherent mess, and just one of the worst films ever made.

    A fun blockbuster that suffers from sloppiness and a lack of characterization.
