I dont know what to make of this movie. I plan on seeing it when it hits theatres here in the US 7/4/7. I fear of disappointment going away from the origina Transformers to this one. Seems a bit more violent than the cartoon.

BTW, does anyone know if the producers of this movie used the late Orson Welles' voice in it? He was in the 1986 movie "Transformers: The Movie".

I will probably go see it myself, for sake of curiousity. But alas, I do feel I will be disappointed.

Why would they? Unicron isn't in the movie.

 checkmark  I agree with that.

In one preview, I saw Megatron jumping out of a pool and was about to harm a human infant. That, alone, turned me off and angered me. That kind of violence never happened in the original series.

Had the producers stuck with the original stuff, it probably would have been a much better movie, IMO.

i'm not entirely for sure if that's Megatron or not. and the infant wasn't really in trouble. the robot just walks over her. one of the entertainment blogs says that that was Ironhide.

I think you have to look at this movie the same way you look at Battlestar Galactica. The basic character elements are carried over, but you can not say that it is a remake of the original. From what I've read so far, the script has a good sci-fi story behind it AND there are enough similarities to G1 personalities to keep us "old" fans happy. I'm looking forward to seeing it. Even though Megs looks different, I still think he will be his same, bad-ass self.

I think thats optimus prime when he lands on earth when the others touchdown as well...he lands in pool and young girl goes and see's him as he walks out thinking its tooth fairy,than parents come out and he disappears behind the tree and parents asking what happened to their pool.

The movie premiered in Indonesia on 28 June 2007, I watched it on the opening night and again last night. It was a SUPERB movie, the best so far in 2007 in my opinion, passing Spiderman 3, Shrek 3 and Pirates 3 by miles!

I have a lot to say but I don't want to spoil it to those who have yet to watch it, expecially our friends in the US.

Mikaela (Megan Fox) is smoking hot, just as Maggie (Rachael Taylor) and Lennox (Josh Duhamel). But among all the casts, Sam (Shia LeBeouf) simply steal the show. If he manages his career wisely, he may be bigger than Tom Hanks someday.

The robots in this movie are all uber cool. Optimus Prime are with his grand aura as usual but it was Bumblebee who shines and captured my heart. I like that annoying small Decepticon robot who trespassed Air Force One and later on transformed into Mikaela's cellphone too.

And also expect super cool vehicles in this movie, a lot of beautiful cars/SUVs, aircrafts, helicopters and some US warcrafts which I never seen in my whole life. Los Angeles was featured majestically in this movie, a good alternative to New York I supposed. Love the F22s flying/fighting scene above LA's skyscrapers.

It is a long movie, 2 hours 20 minutes but there's not even a second that will left you felt bored about it. The movie's theme song is Linkin Park's "What I've Done" which suits the mood perfectly.

As someone who grew up in the 80s watching the cartoon, this movie is simply mindblowing and bring new dimention to the Transformers robots. Believe me.

That is not Megatron. Megatron crash landed in the Artic Circle thousand of years ago in search of Alspark and in 1934 was transported to Hoover Dam. The robot who landed in the pool is Ironhide. That little girl thought he was the tooth fairy. Ironhide later on transformed into a cool SUV, the same as the one owned by the little girl's father.

The Autobots crash-on-earth scene 'ala-Amageddon-and-Deep Impact' are very cool. All 4 robots crashed like a meteorite in different places in LA and all transformed into the very first human vehicle that captured their attention. I just wondering what will Optimus Prime looks like if what he saw first was a tiny pink Volkwagen Beetle.   

The only violent robot in this movie is just Megatron. He regards all human as 'maggots' and did crushed about 100 people to death. Very inspiring indeed. All the robots including the Autobots regards human as a 'primitive and violent based' race, which somehow true.


I would be so surprise if this movie didn't manage to earned USD 300 million in the US box office and won the Best Special Effect in the 80th Academy Awards early next year. Go and watch this movie. 5 star!!!

Saw it last night - it was indeed very very good. Much better than i expected it to be.

It has its flaws - it has very "Micheal Bay" type scenes (ie. cathartic to max - think of the guys in Armageddon walking in front of the sun while the wind blows and music plays) which usually is s huge turn off for me - but in Transformers it was very well balanced with humor all balls-out action. The end seems a bit rushed. Acting was really good too. Shia LeBoeuf is really a good actor.

People were clapping all over the movie - and the you can hear everyone gasping at the cool effects.

It is what it is - a fun popcorn summer movie that allows you to really sit back and enjoy.

I want a pet robot now. I was secretly wishing my Jetta would be standing up after i left the theater.

Did anyone notice that when they landed Air Force One was no longer a the 747, but a KC-135? The re-fueling boom stuck out like a sore thumb. Other than that it was a great movie. I am going to go see it at IMAX as well.

On the afternoon/evening of July 4th, every Transformer movie was sold out in the Harkins Theatres at Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe. So I had to settle for Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End.

So maybe next week, I'll go see Transformers.

I really liked the movie, but I was a bit disappointed that they focussed more on the humans than on the robots, especially the decepticons (Starscream for example). We know nothing of their personalities from the movie, except Optimus Prime. I was hoping to see Starscream being the weasel he was in the cartoons. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to find my old transformers action figures...

I was not a transformers fan before this movie. I have now seen it twice! my cousins are laughing at me now for saying "I am MEGATRON".

My whole theater on 2 occascions were so into this movie. Clapping when Prime introduced himself. I have never been into a movie like this at the theater in a long time. I think my 2 favorites were Ironhide and Megatron.

They made me a fan now. Im going on Youtube to look at the cartoons. Before this movie I didnt know who jazz was but I did NOT like the scene with him and Big Brother Decepticon. That was just not right!

This is a runaway it is enjoying great word of mouth despite the critics. The CGi was GREAT. I little to close at time though.

Saw it last night and liked and hated it. Was with my 13 year old daughter. Special effects were great, most of the one liners were funny. But sorry, they could have knocked the cuss words down some as well as the sexual innuendo and the movie still would not have lost a thing. Just me I guess. Wish they still made them more like War Games.

Why the heck is Bumblebee a Camero? I mean HELLO??? VW needed in yellow stat!
Where is Hot-rod/Rodimus?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Scorpinox was a bit lame...
WTF were they thinking about Frenzy??? and if he's around WHERE IS SOUNDWAVE?!

Ill leave it at that... as a hard core Transformers fan as a kid, i am satisfied with the movie, the effects are the best yet and the storyline is Transformerish enough, though the first hour could be cut to 20 minutes nicely...

9.5/10

Stupid question though... are we SURE Bumblebee got his legs back?...

Absolute fantastic film,great variety of aircraft used,i.e-Blackhawks,Raptors,Hercules,C-17s and more.Bumblebee as the Camaro was a great character i thought,loved the howl from the engine  biggrin  The CGI was amazing,the close ups of Optimus Prime showed such detail you'd almost believe it was real.All this and aload of guns and action made it a great watch  bigthumbsup

Generally I loved this movie.

I have a few probems with it. First, as already mentioned, it was a 2 hour GM commercial. The only none GM car was Barricade and that was a Saleen Mustang. So it's Ford vs. GM all over again.

I think it was BS that Bumblebee was a Camaro. At the very least he ought to have been a VW, and yes a Beetle would have bee a bit "girly" but a Jetta would have been cool.

Lastly, there was a glaring continuity error in the Barricade/Bumblebee chase, which begins in broad daylight, and halfway through is't suddenly dead of night. X-Men Three had the same problem.

I don't know if its true or not, but I heard that VW denied the use of their vehicles in the movie because they felt it promoted violence. And we all know VWs stand on that, as theres a flower vase in every new Bug.

Also, I agree with the person that said it was more about the humans than the Transformers. Hopefully, someone will remake the movie as it should have been, ala Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins versus the silly Joel Schumacher ones.
