For me this movie was incredibly S L O W at about the 59 minute mark it picked up a bit as we started to meet the Transformers - to be honest though I did not watch to the end. Too slow, drawn out and a tad boring for my liking. Real Steel this is not.
Wow! look a the the special effects!
Special effects are fantastic. Can't help but feel attached to the transformers.
Mad...movie...hopefully Transformers 2 will be in my mailbox soon....
Very disapointing film. Weak story, poor continuity and fantastic special effects.
Excellent movie, special effects amazing. Josh Duhamel is a honey.
One of the major blockbusters of 2007, awesome movie
Entertaining movie, with a mixture of action and comedy.
Loved this movie, found it funny with fast paced action. Kept me entertained the whole movie.
Meh. I don't understand what the fuss is about.
one of the best action movies of recent times.
brilliant cast, amazing CGI.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Loved the special effects and graphics. Well thought out story line.
As a kid I really enjoyed watching transformers and the movie brought back some good memories.
I love this film. I did not have high expectations but it was very good.
Love TRANSFORMERS!!!! I used to buy them for my nephew when he was little in early 80's. Movie was excellent
Really enjoyable movie for the genre. Nothing too serious, but well put together and with good effects. Really suitable for a Friday night movie!
LOVED IT FROM START TO FINISH!!!
Surprisingly I enjoyed this movie. The special effects were well done.
Amazing graphics but the fight scenes were in too close, I couldn't tell where they were or what was going on. The storyline was a bit poor, and it went for too long.
excellent movie, loved it.
Junk fiction. Could easily have been so much better, but the idiotic, whining, mouth-open Californian lead just ruined it. Shame. Kids only.
Enjoyable movie although didn't live up to my expectations. I was a big fan of transformers as a kid and the movie just didn't compare to the original.
The movie lived up to it's expectations. Transformers is my childhood cartoon favourite! Great actions and it's amazing how they turned this cartoon into a non-animated movie! The robots are so realistic! We sure could use them in real life!
Excellent movie, great story line! Is a must to watch!
Didn't really like this movie. Maybe I wasn't really in the mood to watch a movie? I switched off after about 20 minutes and started doing the housework. I saw bits an pieces of the movie here and there. Very heavy on the action (probably why I switched off). Very long movie.
As a Transformers fan from way back this is exactly what I expected. True to my childhood memories with excellent special effects and amazing sound.
Best sepcial effects ever. Worth watching just for that....oh and for Megan Fox... HUBABABABAB!
good action and special effects were good
Great for the imagination. Scary little machines that can do a lot. A bit far fetched and an escape from the 'real' world.
A bit of a let down after all the hype. Still enjoyable
I wasnt a fan of transformers till I saw this movie .Very well done .Suits the whole family .Cant wait till the next one.
A brilliant movie that had lots of action and I enjoyed The Tranformers from beginning to end.
Highly recommended movie. Is a must watch!!!
Started off great and slowly went downhill from there..a waste of time ..OK for the pre teens but as an adult movie ..go watch the grass grow is more exciting..I give it a 4/10 for the opening scenes...
WOW - wasn't expecting much and was really surprised, storyline was reasonable, effects are unbelievably good.
I got this for my man but I loved it as well. You don't have to be a Transformers fan to enjoy. The Transformers were awsome.I want a Bumble Bee for myself.
I put this DVD on for the kids to watch while I got dinner ready, but within 10 minutes I was sitting down with them and watching the whole thing! I enjoyed this alot, and the kids did too. Great fun, amazing special effects.
Fantastic movie. so much better than I expected.
Great for all ages
The actors are woeful - what is so great about Shia LeBoeuf & Megan Fox? The real stars are the Transformers themselves. The SFX are awesome!
Off the hook! Action packed and full of good laughs. Brings the classic to life! If you haven't seen this - you really should.
One of the best movies ever can't wait for release on tranformers 2. Highly Recommend
This was a truly dismal effort.
Dislikable main characters, incomprehensible plot and action sequences that were so chaotic you really couldn't tell who the baddies and goodies were! It successfully eradicated whatever naive charm the original cartoon may have had, which was fairly limited to start with, and managed to be peurile, bombastic and tedious all at once. Bring back the decent corny block buster ala Independence Day that could be totally over the top but at least laugh at its own pretensions.
Great movie with amazing special effects.
Would have enjoyed it more though had it not been for the scratch (again!).
not to be dismissed as a "kiddie" flick.
need to watch it more than once as there's so much going on every second.
I'm 54, yet thoroughly enjoyed it.
Great movie, its up there with one of my faves!
This film is not as good as it should be... The effects are fabulous but there are not always used effectively. The action doesn't really start until the very end of the film. The casting of the lead actor was inspired, he is brilliant - but some of the other performances are more robotic than the robots! It is quite good fun, especially for those of us who watched the cartoon as kids, but it's no masterpiece and you need to leave your logic circuit at the door to prevent you picking apart all the holes in the plot.
I think this must lose a lot on the small screen, it really is special effects heavy. Fun in places but could have been better.
The best movie ever. Great storyline, great music, great action. Just great. Loved it Fantastic on a big screen tv as the DVD features were just awesome
The worst movie I have seen in two years! Child like story line, but special effects are impressive.
Awful.... corny and cliched with nauseating special effects. A great dissapointment.
Fantastic family fun.great viewing for young and old.
The kids absolutely raved about this movie - 10 out of 10!
Typical Michael Bay. The plot was shaky, the movie was too long, and there was some truly cringe-worthy dialogue, but the visual effects were excellent, and - hey, giant robots!!! With guns!! Blowing stuff up!! Silly but fun.
Brilliant movie. Enjoyed every second of it. All the family loved it. Great effects and transformation!!!
One of the best movies I've ever seen. The transformer characters fascinated me. The young couple were excellent actors. The action was continuous and exciting, never a dull moment, nothing repetitious.
I was never into transformers as a kid,I can't build anything....
People I know who loved transformers said they hated this,mainly because of the typical love story and transformers not transforming into what they were supposed to ,But they are idiots, I thought this was a very good film.
My 13yo daughter described it as ..awesome !!!... So much happens in the action scenes you don't know where to look. All the family enjoyed.
If u have a good home theatre dont wait for it, just buy it..
its basically about a dude who wants to get with the lead girl. Thats about it, but with robots all around the place. Don't blame him, but awesome movie all the same. i'm totally looking forward to the next one!
kids and hubby loved it from begining to end action packed and fasinating. a definate family going movie
MY 12 year old loved the movie. I didn't watch it.
i expected to really hate this movie but was amazed how good it is.plenty of action without lacking in story one for everybody
I thought it might have been too try hard given all the special effects it was going to have to have, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Very surprised!
this is one of top movie with very good special effects
Very entertaining, funny, faced paced, great effects, loved the transformers, epecially bumble bee. Good all round film.
With alot of the old TV shows being made into movies this one has to top the list next to the new Batman movies & Superman returns. Its so full of action & us females not only will we like the movies cause of how well its made but we have Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and Shia Labeouf need I saw more.
Unreal well worth the viewing
Excellent special effects and entertaining storyline. Didn't like the way they gave the robots personalities though....I prefer my robots to act like machines
A real yawnfest - at least 40 minutes too long and too many subplots with some of the worst acting I've seen in a blockbuster movie in a long time. Very predictable, too. However, the special effects were fantastic (the giant scorpion critter in the desert was brilliant), but in the last fight scene I couldn't tell the difference between the bad and good robots, so it lost its impact. The autobots and deceptocons had no personality at all (unlike the TV show from my childhood) so I couldn't have cared less what happened to any of them. A real yawnfest. Keep your fastforward button ready.
excellent graphics, it just looks so real!!
great action packed movie for all the family, special effects great and good story line
It is different to the usual alien movies where they come to earth to wipe each other out. The special effects were really good. Bits and pieces of the movie I thought was more for the younger generation but most of it was good.
Wasn't expecting much from this, but I was really pleasantly surprised. This is a very watchable and enjoyable family movie.
Like watching a really fast, expensive wristwatch being destroyed in a blender. Half the time I had no idea what was going on... but damn was it fun!
Excellent popcorn movie. Just sit back and be entertained.
Very exciting movie. Great effects, loved it.
After watching and speaking with other parents, we hired this for our 6 and 4 yr old boys who have always loved Transformers!
The "M" Rating is too harsh. The goodies beat the baddies, stuff blows up. There is no blood, guts or swearing(we heard one sh..)
TOTALLY unexpected! I LOVED it!
Pretty standard Hollywood action flick. Some nice special effects, but not much more. Boys under 12 would probably like this more than anyone else.
the graphics in this was brilliant
The special effects in this movie were unbelievable and if you like cars and lots of action this is the movie for you.
Not a bad action movie and left itself open for sequels.
Recommended for teenagers. Not for adults.
Awesome! Loved it so much it's going back in the queue. I was a Transformers geek in my early years, but you don't need to be to enjoy the movie. My wife loved it and didn't know her Autobots from her Deceptacons! Must see.
wow for the first time ever my husband enjoyed a movie that I picked out he now wants to own it himself
Much to my surprise I loved this movie. I was expecting the typical blockbuster type movie, but found it to be much more than that. I really enjoyed it.
a breath taking action packed thriller from the opening credits untill the end i was captivated and thought how do they do that ,the special effects are breath taking a 6 star movie out of 5 brilliant
The special effects in this movie were outstanding. Not really in to this type of movie but Ive been converted.
Effects good. Rest very average.
Cut the First Hour...It is way too long! Don't let the little kids watch it....Not the cartoon version in the 90's it is for those who are now BIG BOY who never really GREW UP! After the first hour really good and very funny !
Fantastic! whole family loved it, must see!
We watched it twice we like it so much!
You will no be disappointed.
the special affects are excellent
one of the best movies I saw in 2007.
the special effects were fantastic
Really well done. I was never a fan of the tv show but the movie was brilliant!
This is a seriously awesome action-packed movie. I thought it might be mainly for kids but it is tremendous entertainment for the whole family. The story is great and the special effects are fantastic. Don't miss it !
great movie awesome effects enjoyed by kids and adults alike
Great effects. Just love watching them transform. Make sure you turn up the bass to max to get the best out of all those explosions. A real wall rocker.
Great movie and effects. The slapstick humour in parts kind of ruined it as it was really well done otherwise..
A great movie of which all the family would enjoy.
Excellent movie production of the transformers.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I only watched it because the kids wanted me to watch it with them.
What can I say besides this movie being FANTASTIC, I even named my motorbike after Bumble Bee the main car in this great movie.
Resisting the urge to be scathing in this review, so barely a three star film. The effects are good and the story carries the movie well, but it's just a little too cheesy. Not in a War of the Worlds corny ending kinda way (that really would warrant contempt) more a trying too hard to be good thing. Some of the humour releases that are typical fodder for action flicks miss the mark whilst others are laugh out loud stuff. Remember the toys, anyone wanting to fit in at my school had to have at least three Transformers, but never embraced the series, so with minimal authority I will call it a fair adaptation. The films Autobots seem as clean cut visually and morally from my recollection. Bring on a live action remake of Star Blazers.
not a fan as a kid but definitely enjoyed the movie.
This was an excellent movie, far different from what I expected. I liked the humour.
Very pleasantly surprised everyone enjoyed it and great special effects etc - story line pretty predicatable and ending a bit cheesy but overall enjoyable
Let's face it - This movie is never going to win any kind of award for the script or acting. The affects are worth watching, but the movie is full of obvious holes that can also be fun to watch (thats what we did when we got bored in between the cool cgi effects). Kids would love it - adults - maybe a little fun to watch for the effects, but a once only film. If you liked this you'd probably enjoy X-men and Batman films too I'd think.
got this one for the kids but quite enjoyed it myself, plenty of action
Transformers is a special effects winner it has dramatic special effects and is great for the people who grew up with it, i didnt but it was still a great movie
5 stars from me
Fkn 1 of d best movies eva!!!!
I loved it! No thinking required, just a fun ride thru thrill after thrill! The humour was great, especially the scene with the cop. Had to get my own copy.
Whether or not you grew up with the cartoons (Transformers ...robots in disguise)...anyway I digress.
The action rolls along superbly, the storyline ...well do we really care?
Great movie ... and you try getting the song out of your head
I'm not usually into this sort of movie, but I found this one drew me in.
Great Light hearted action packed movie
i LOVED IT THOUGHT IT WAS FANTASTIC
I am very surprised by this movie, as I enjoyed it . The special efects , amazing.
an excellent movie to watch, humor, action.....would watch it again n again
I don't usually like this sort of movie - but I thought it was great. The special effects are so good it even had me a little scared at times and most horror movies don't scare me!
Oh how wish I had seen this on the big screen ! Everyone totally enjoyed it. Could watch again , well actually that was the second time , my nevue hired it b4 and the childrenmissed out. Excellent ! 3 cheers 4 Bumblebee.
Best action movie I have seen this year. The effects are brilliant. A little bit cheesy but you expect that with these all-American blockbusters. Sets the new benchmark for CGI.
awesome!!! not to be missed. watched it twice in one night!!! critics dont know what they are talking about!
The movie started well, but laboured the more you got into the movie. I fast forwarded through the last half hour. Got sick of it by the end. The script writing was poor. The boy who was the main actor, was pretty lame. The only saving grace was the digital effects with the transformers.
I must be getting old I didn't like it at all, too many humans and that moron from secret seven was a pain. Would have been better with Soundwave, Lazerbeak and Ravage.
Best movie of the year. The sound adds so much to this movie.
The best movie of the year without any doubts. The special effects were mind-boggling. These guys keep getting better and better. I cant wait for the sequel to come out now. The robots are the real heroes in this movie and they have got royal treatment by the special effects team. Shia was excellent as the nervous teenager.
Probably better if you see this movie in a cinema. As I saw it in a small TV screen.
Best action film of the year, the special effects were amazing. Hope there is a sequel.
I didn't expect it to be such a good movie but i liked it a lot
A classic Michael Bay action flick full of entertainment. Get out the popcorn, sit back and enjoy.
Hard to know what i was in for as i grew up on the cartoons. Expected i would be disappointed, to my surprise the movie surpassed my expectations. Great effects, some subtle humour, great cast and well paced story. Well worth checking out.
Absolute brilliance!!!! For those of you who grew up watching the cartoons it is a definate must see and as for those that are probably too young to remember the old cartoons it is still a definate as you really don't need any background to follow a movie about a bunch of huge talking robots that transform into cars, trucks radios etc. Highly recomended to all aged 1 to 100. Happy watching
Awesome special effects, ground shaking sound. A bit sentimental in a couple of scenes but otherwise a fantastic ride that is often quite funny despite it's dramatic theme.
Awesome!!! Best action movie in recent years. Spectacular special effects!! 5 stars all the way!
Thin plot, wooden acting and some really childish jokes would normally add up to a terrible movie. In this case however, it added up to great fun. Believe it or not, I enjoyed this movie immensely.
Enjoyed this action movie, has pretty much a little of everything for everyone, plenty of action, humour and even a little love in there, worth watching and waiting for number two.
really good ,i enjoyed it, just a bit of dumb fun
I put this as the best movie made so far. Its nonstop action from begining to end
OK, put the brain into neutral and prepare for some big dumb fun. As important and relevant as last weeks newspaper but it's still a great ride. Even though it takes a while to get started, once it's going it moves at breakneck speed.
Well worth the Watch
One of the best movies out in 07
Absolutely brilliant. From being a huge cartoon fan this movie rocked. Great action and actors as well.
Incredible special effects. Dont miss this!!
The action is wonderful, the actors tell surprisingly good jokes, and the Transformers rock the cinema. Not to be missed.
