Certain things are just objectively true. Water is wet. The sky is blue. The Pope is Catholic. Gingers have no souls. And Michael Bay's Transformers movies are incredibly bad. And while this first one is not the mind-blowing trainwreck that many of its sequels would become, it's still a terrible movie - a bloated, sluggish mass of sexism, racism, 'splosions, horrible comic relief, and characters that annoy me to the point of frothing madness. A cinematic cumsock.

Total bomb. I can't believe this movie is two and a half hours long when its only redeeming quality is Shia LaBeouf. The "comedic relief" is insultingly bad and painfully unfunny. I don't want to watch a transformer piss lube all over some guy's head. That's just embarrassing. Michael Bay sucks.

Typical Michael Bay cliche-ridden-patronize-your-audience clusterfuck. Awkward, condescending dialogue and character interactions. Pointless subplots. I only moderately enjoyed a few scenes involving the Transformers destroying shit, which were worth nothing more than just that. I'm pretty astounded by the fact that Bay "subtly" name-drops Armageddon. Who the fuck does this motherfucker think he is? I'll tell you. He's a fucking middle-aged frat boy with money and Hollywood connections. Die.

A supreme disappointment. The movie felt like a 3 hour GMC commercial. The CG was blurry & overdone most of the time, though it looks very impressive at times. As cool as flashing lights and big explosions are, it gave me a headache watching those fight scenes! The sub-stories (the soldiers, and Sam's romance) add unnecessary time & character development, when the movie should have focused more on the robots. The soundtrack and dialogue were bad too, but I wasn't expecting much anyway.

HOLY CRAP, this was awful. It's way too long, and the Transformers themselves--which are not entirely faithful to the cartoon but still have impressive designs--take a back seat to annoying generic characters. There are an unbelievable amount of unfunny jokes and gags, the action is boring, and the plot is ridiculous. Let me say this: Hot Rod fishing with Daniel in the in '86 film was less silly than this movie.

The action at the end is good (although too much shakycam) and the CG is always impressive. It's just a pity that 2/3rds of the film is fulled with awful dialogue, a romance subplot that goes nowhere, "hilarious" scenes like the robots tiptoeing around the kid's garden and hiding from his parents, the least funny parent/teen sex talk ever, transformers peeing jokes, and a fat angry black man/aussie girl subplot that takes up lots of screentime but goes NOWHERE. A typical Bay film.

Though the acting is often over the top, it's often warranted. After all, it's not like they were going for all out realism. The CG is flawless and works very well with the practical effects. Above all else, Transformers has non-stop entertainment with solid pacing and excellent action. Most importantly, for fans like myself, it's quite true to the source. Finally, it's possibly the best work of director Michael Bay, who clearly focused on what he's best at: visual flare. Awesome!

Cars, hot girls, giant robots and explosions. And yet, besides the amazing special effects and CGI, the film is very shallow and generic. Bad dialogue, uneven acting, and Bay's mundane directing really kill a premise that should be pretty easy to execute. Even the action scenes fall short.

AMAZING! The summer blockbuster to end all summer blockbusters. It's like every summer blockbuster has been leading up to this flick. It's geek heaven! Funny, suspenseful, exciting, and just plain cool. Sure there are some dumb characters and stuff, but it's amazingly entertaining. Shia LeBeouf and Bernie Mac rule! It's really more of a Spielberg film, just directed by Michael Bay.

Just another stupid, cliched action movie. I expected the silly dialogue and poor characterization. I didn't expect them to fuck up the concept so badly - "good robots fight bad robots" isn't all that complicated, is it? But the film spends so much time on unlikeable humans that the transformers become secondary, the opposite of their role on the show. Plus they neutered Prime, that shit is inexcusable.

I never found the Transformers cartoon particularly interesting or insightful but rather an excuse to sell action figures. As such I thought Michael Bay was the perfect choice to direct this as he knows how to make things explode. Sure it's full of cheese, just like the old tv show, but this is solid entertainment. The action scenes are fantastically filmed from a bystander of a giant robot fight perspective. If you enjoy fun mindless action flicks check this out. If not, pass on it.

Do you enjoy watching gigantic robots fighting and totally demolishing all buildings in their paths? If not, then you will still most likely enjoy watching Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf instead. This smoking duo battles evil Decepticons with the help of Autobots Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Though the fighting scenes might get a little boring at times, watching this team of heroes never gets old.

Stupid dialogue, too much shakey-cam, and many pointless scenes and characters that could have easily been trimmed out without impacting the movie at all. Some of the action was decent, but half the time you can't even tell what the hell is going on due to the robots being one giant blurry ball of metal. However, the robots themselves did look cool.

It seems that even with the perfect franchise for his corny and overly explosive directing style, Bay can still manage to screw everything over. While the design of the Transformers themselves is top notch, everything else is a total abomination. Before I even get into the terrible dialogue and the previously unthinkable further retardation of what was already nothing more than a Saturday cartoon, there's Fox. You know, the stupid bitch pretending to know something about nothing. Total rubbish.

While not the best action movie of 2007 (see: Live Free or Die Hard), Transformers is still a thrill ride that should be seen in the theaters or not at all. The visual effects are stunning and surely are the best yet seen in a movie; the transformers looked photorealistic which, in the beginning of the movie, made the initial decepticon attacks all the more terrifying. It's a really fun movie, and if you can get over the cheesy plot--which really should be expected in a movie about Transforme

Transformers is not just bad, it is a movie that openly seems to have disdain for what should be its biggest fans. It constantly ponders in fan of horrible comedy, the action is so clustered it boarders on unwatchable, and even the "heroes" are insufferable jerks. The only redeeming character is so objectified by the film-making itself, that it is impossible to have any sympathy with her.

What a pleasant surprise! I really liked this movie! I thought it had an interesting story-line with some intellectual and moral questions as well as fun characters. I was amazed at how quickly I took a liking to the characters, and along the same lines, how quickly I took to the Autobot characters! The animation was great, and I thought that the emotions of the transformers came across without "cheating" on the robotic facial/movement abilities. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and fun film!

An epic-feeling triple-perspective narrative makes things exciting, and welcome shots of humour injected into the sci-fi war plot continually keep things fun (see Anderson's hyper hacker; LaBeouf's lovable loser, quirky parents, sensitive car). The Transformers can be cheesy though (see Optimus' speeches), and both Fox's turn and the final fight leave something to be desired (see her puzzling tow-truck escapades; Sam having to run with the cube), so it's not the perfect film, but it's enjoyable.

Completely Michael Bay. That means : bad characters, stupid throwaway gags, lots of product placement, and a bad script with terribly cheesy lines. Luckily though, its ALLOWED to be stupid because its based on fucking ACTION FIGURES. Good action and eye candy make it worth watching even though you will be rolling your eyes constantly. Is a robot transformer saying "what's crackin bitches" stupid as shit? Yes. It's also hilarious though, as long as you don't take it seriously.

It's absurd how unnecessary so many of the subplots are (there are seriously something like eight different human narrative threads in this movie, there should be two or three), and I hate how fast Michael Bay cuts during the action scenes.

What the fuck?! Why is this film so loved by many? The plot is fucking aweful - cheesy beyond redemption. I never liked the idea of transforming, anthropomorphical cars - even as a kid I'd much rather play with other toys - and that adds to my frustration with the ridiculous characters. As an anthropomorphical car, you should not be a fucking retard. I hope this film dies a slowly and painful death in the a dark corny of dusty film archives.

The new approach to the old series leaves the fans in pieces. For a non-fan, this movie still isn't very enjoyable. The banale love interest and a stubborn decision to focus a lot of the movie on the awkward suburbian moments of the main characters life is particularly annoying, and the fact that the action scenes tend to go blurry really fast does not help the least.

Good movie that combines pretty good action scenes with humour and a surprisingly good story. The plotline was way better than I expected.

Also a few little mistakes. On the other hand, the special effects are really good.

More towards good than bad, but what do you expect from Mikey Bay film about a giant robot toy ad? I particulary liked the fact than Bay lets Spielberg have his family film bit with 'goofy' and 'hilarious' sequences of robots pratting around in a garden and whatnot. Then Bay gets into the editing suite and demands the following: 1). SHOUTING 2). TRANSFORMING ROBOTS BLOWING SHIT UP 3). SHOUTING 4). MORE EXPLOSIONS 5). DID I MENTION EXPLOSIONS AND SHOUTING

WAY TOO OVERHYPED! Awesome CG and effects as usual. But, the action, dialogue, script and cast were all average. There's so much shakycam you can't tell which robot is which, and the pacing is absolutely atrocious. The final battle at the end pretty much saves this from being a decent film to a stupid, laughing-stock of a Sci-fi movie. One of last year's biggest disappointments, but we all come to expect something like this from Mr. Bay.

I didn't think this one was half bad. It's not great. The parents were very annoying, some of the transformers look like junkyards, the acting is hit-and-miss, and the story is kind of cheesy.
