awesome action flick with a great story to introduce the series. has that "original" feel to it. also pretty funny. less action than the sequels but the story made up for it. transformers are just too awesome (about 5 viewings)
Not only were the effects and action prolific the protagonists weren't violent and war mongering like they are in the sequels. Bay still needs to improve on giving the Transformers themselves more screen time and better dialogue
"Jurassic Park" is to "Transformers" as "Transformer" is to all of the other movies. It is to long but the action is close up and gives you scale (not as successful as JP but still the best in the series).
