I can't believe that Megatron was the father of Optimus Prime and they were both filled with midichlorians. Seriously, though... can't wait to watch it. All 80's cartoons should be made into movies (Hollywood's going to do it anyway).

If they make sequels, I want to see the Dinobots, Omega Supreme, Astro Train, and Jetfire.

This gets an A while Live Free or Die Hard gets a C ??!! Well, I've yet to see Transformers, so I'll hold final judgement until then. But unless Transformers is as good as Raiders of the Lost Ark or the original Die Hard, I think there's something a bit screwy with Brian Thomas's reviews...

Great review! Can't wait for live action movies made from Thundercats, M.A.S.K or He-man. Or the animes Space adventure Cobra or Starzinger/Spacekeeters

HA!! M.A.S.K. I forgot about that one. It was made for Michael Bay. It's what he's been working towards. Funnily enough both Thundercats and He-man are both in the works, or at least being discuused.

I bet 100-1 odds, Evil Monkey...that He-Man goes all the way through production and gets made... While...Thundercats falls into development hell and is never released at all. :) Jarrod Sarafin

i knew this would get high marks from this site, no doubt because it probably rocks. but i am still skeptical of this film for a few reasons! 1)How are they going to cram all that into one film? 2)How is michael bay NOT going to ruin this for me? i agree with the sleeper that LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD should have gotten higher marks too.

Imagine that, another typical Mania review. Why is it that this site always has to spoil the whole story instead of just reviewing the movie? I'm done with this site. You suck and so do your reviews!!!!

Don't Get Me Wrong. I hope this ovie kicks ass as much as the A indicates. But I have wonder does--cornball w/great special effects--add up to A . I mean if that's all it takes why is Spider Man 3 getting panned by so many people. Why does Pirates get a C from EW and a D- from one of the fan reviews. I'm not trying to bitch about this review or reviewer. Actually in actually mentioning the plot this review is a lot better than many I've seen. It just seems like everywhere I look people are talking about how great this movie is, while neatly avoiding discussions of characterization, whether the plot has holes in it. The very things everyoneb talked about with Spider Man 3, Pirates 3 and even Fantastic Four 2. With Transformers, the unwritten rule seems to be, as long as the FX are good the movie's to be considered great. A tren which unfortunately remindes me of movies like Independence Day or Armagedon. Everyone was so jazzed about them when they came out, then a year later when those groundbreaking FX started looking a little dated, everyone who loved them started saying they crap. Again, eexpect it's, ope it's bette than fun, but the plot described here does not make me think Raiders of the Lost Ark. A movie that still kicks ass, decades after the digital FX revlution, for solid acting and storytelling. But hey, if it that good, I'll eat that crow and enjoy every feather.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the premiere, and I'd say it's an A- The comedy was sometimes a bit overwhelming, although it's good to know that the writers and stars didn't take the material too seriously. The effects were literally jaw dropping in some places, and Bay's direction isn't as distracting as it usually is. His use of slow motion is actually perfect throughout. I'd go to see this again.
