The acting was good, with a nice actress. Very different, great action, and fast paced. Certainly wont bore you. Michael Bay dished out a good movie. Visually brilliant, worth your money and your time.

Transformers is a summer special effects extravaganza starring Shia LaBeouf as the descendant of an Arctic explorer who gets caught up in a war between rival factions of a robotic alien race. Michael Bay, the scourge of modern cinema, once again foregoes anything so unnecessary a...

I loved the Transformers cartoons as a kid. They are alien robots in disguise. Shia buys his first car only to find out it is an autobot. The autobots have to defeat Megatron and protect the human race. I love the house scene where the autobots are trying to hide outside in the g...

Michael Bay's visual feast of war-driven robots on Earth is epic. Though some bumps could've been avoided the film is overshadowed by groundbreaking visual effects and in-depth action that is captivating from start to finish. 4.5/5

Oh man... another Michael Gay movie. Guess what it has? Explosions, helicopters flying, slow motion of eye candy (whether it may be the transformers or the useless Megan Fox herself). What a bore. The action was forgettable and the characters are uninspired.

Michael Bay takes the helm for this big budget live-action adaptation of some of the coolest toys from my childhood.
It's one race of robot aliens who can transform into various vehicles and things against another, and it's on Earth and humans get involved, and, despite being f...

Transformers is technically a bad movie, but it still manages to be an enjoyable big budget summer popcorn flick. The visuals are absolutely stunning, the filmmakers did a great job in bringing the Autobots and Decepticons to life. The action is fast, chaotic, and full of explosi...
