Long and irritating big screen movie of alien robots that turn into cars and planes and wage war. One great scene just makes it worthwhile.

Transformers Blu-ray Cover art
Say what you will about Michael Bays Transformers, this is one of my favorite movies of all time.  Though not everyone is a fan of this film, it was one of the biggest hits during the summer of 2007, if not the biggest.  Transformers is an action packed, story driven thrill ride, something that Michael Bay knows how to pull off all to well.  All of the wonder and awe of the film has been transferred onto beautiful Blu-ray High Def and this makes it just as much fun at home as it is …

In this 2007 blockbuster, we are enlightened to the creation of the Autobots, a benevolent race of robots from the planet Cybertron. We are then made aware of its destruction by the malevolent Decepticons, and in the process loses the All Spark on Earth. After the introduction, we move to U.S. SOCCENT FWD military base in Qatar where the Decepticons Blackout and Scorponok attack and try to hack into the military network to find the location of the now lost Megatron (leader of the Decepticons) and …

This movie was good in terms of the special effects and all but that was about it.  Well Megan Fox made it somewhat enjoyable to watch too, just purely on her hotness.  And Shia LaBeuf played his role pretty well too.  But overall, I expected a lot more from this movie as an old school fan of the cartoon.       One major flaw to this movie was the fact that they weren't like in the cartoon where they transformed into one thing.  For example, megatron …

What a surprise. Transformers, is sincerely the most unlikely candidate for one of my favourite films of all time, yet it nabbed a spot in an instant. Michael Bay, let's face it, isn't the greatest Director in the world, but there's no denying that he's still good at what he does. He has the capability of creating an epic and enjoyable mindless blockbuster, that when you come out of watching it, you're not sure why, but you loved it. Armageddon is a symbol of that and with its many, many flaws i.e. …

Transformers: The Movie
You can't overthink "Transformers."  Basically, what you have are huge talking robots that sometimes turn into automobiles.  Some are good, some are bad, and they battle each other.    Trying to take Transformers seriously, or attempting to forge some deeper meaning out of the symbology of Transformers, is as futile as Megatron's attempts to defeat Optimus Prime.  Transformers is most enjoyed when it is taken for precisely what it is: crazy special effects, evil …

Although CGI is pretty much the cornerstone of this movie, I really enjoyed it.  The acting was great.  Shia LaBeouf did a great job and made some parts of the movie funny for the younger crowd.  An of course you have to have a hot chick that kicks some butt in these kind of movies and I think Megan Fox did a good job.  The fight scenes are hard to follow due to their speed and the complexity of the Transformers bodies, especially at the end.  But overall it is …

About this movie

Wiki



A long time ago, far away on the planet of Cybertron, a war was being waged between the noble Autobots (led by the wise Optimus Prime) and the devious Decepticons (commanded by the dreaded Megatron) for control over the Allspark, a mystical talisman that would grant unlimited power to whoever possessed it. The Autobots managed to smuggle the Allspark off the planet, but Megatron blasted off in search of it. He eventually tracked it to the planet of Earth (circa 1850), but his reckless desire for power sent him right into the Arctic Ocean, and the sheer cold forced him into a paralyzed state. His body was later found by Captain Archibald Witwicky, and before going into a comatose state Megatron used the last of his energy to engrave a map, showing the location of the Allspark, into the Captain's glasses, and send a transmission to Cybertron. He is then carted away by the Captain's ship. A century later, Sam Witwicky, nicknamed Spike by his friends, buys his first car. To his shock, he discovers it to be Bumblebee, an Autobot in disguise who is to protect Spike, as he bears the Captain's glasses and the map carved on them. But Bumblebee is not the only Transformer to have arrived on Earth - in the desert of Qatar, the Decepticons Blackout and Scorponok attack a U.S. military base, causing the Pentagon to send their special Sector Seven agents to capture all "specimens of this alien race," and Spike and his girlfriend Mikaela find themselves in the middle...
