There are few believable characters, Shia Lebouf takes up WAY too much screen time in my opinion and he's a slightly below sub-par actor. I recall in one scene his dialog overshadowed Optimus Prime. I wonder why Micheal Bay didn't hold up a que card with the letters "STF and U" on it because we don't care about Sam Whitwiki, or however you spell that characters name, shows just how much I care about him. I want to see Optimus Prime, he has the best dialog after all. You'd think he'd be annoying but the script respects Optimus greatly and he easily has the best lines. He carries this movie even though he's in about half of it. Megan Fox's character, good god almighty I recall in one scene where she sees the cop car transformer throwing cars aside running at her and she doesn't seem to change her emotion from "you knocked me over" to "HOLY SHIIIIIT PISSED OFF GIANT ROBOT BAIL". I despise her acting, somebody needs to walk up to her and say "Megan please take the vibrator out, you're supposed to act in an action movie, not a pornography". I don't hate her character, I don't hate Shia's character either, I just dislike their acting. But the effects and action are fantastic in this movie, Micheal Bay isn't a great director, in no way is he a great director. But in this movie, a strong script, great effects, and great action makes this movie not only watchable but awesome in how badass it is when the action gets going. I would've preferred to have seen more action scenes in my opinion but the very last 20 minutes of the movie is nothing but fighting robots I think, and it was GLORIOUS. Many times in that movie I could've sworn those robots were really causing that much collateral damage. It has a very high re-watch value. And for films you're guaranteed a successful movie, Now success doesn't equal good, need I bring up the abomination that is the Twilight film. But the fact that Transformers is so re-watchable makes me interested in future films of this name. And if you follow the storyline it's actually a pretty good one, it's nothing too complicated but I don't recall any plot holes, I despise Micheal Bay I was very biased toward this movie and it's sequel, I scoured the films storyline, I looked high and low, hours of wasted effort to try and find a huge gaping plot hole that would just flat out convince me that this movie was garbage. My efforts were in vain. The worst plot hole I found was when Megatron was unfrozen he had to say "I am Megatron" yeah because he has to say his own name when ever he's released, that's what the unfreezing scene in Star Wars Return of the Jedi was missing, Han Solo saying "I am Han Solo". And while I don't care much for the main characters, I didn't find their personalities unlikable. And I was able to enjoy the movie due to it's pace and overarching storyline. I give it a high buying recommendation to anybody who likes action movies.
