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.

Bay manages to tap into the child in all of us despite the film's awkward form and ridiculous script.

The special effects are extraordinary. The transformations of the vehicles to robots are without fault. The protagonists... are pleasing on the eye and have problems that any teenager can relate to.

Transformers gives you pretty much exactly what you want from a summer movie. It's big, it's loud, and boy-howdy is it dumb -- but it's also unquestionably fun.

It's not that Bay's vision for the robot-battle choreography is unimaginative. Rather, he lacks imagination to provide viewers with a way of putting all the pieces together for themselves.

Transformers leaves very few blocks left un-busted.

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.

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.

Bay, of course, can't resists temptation to use as many explosions in the film as possible

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

Transformers is a rollicking, rousing experience.

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.

Big, dumb, and attractive in this case is good enough. (Blu-ray Edition)

...if you are an adult and not already a fan, you may find the movie more than a bit long, loud, and frenzied.

Come to think of it, I was pretty stupid when I was six years old. So is this film.
