About the Movie
The interstellar battle between the Autobots and Decepticons rains destruction down on planet Earth as director Michael Bay adapts Hasbro and Takara's popular Transformers franchise into a big-budget, live-action summer tent-pole extravaganza in this ambitious sci-fi action feature starring Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, Bernie Mac, John Turturro, Jon Voight, and, of course, Optimus Prime and Megatron. Enormous aliens have chosen the third rock from the sun as their ultimate battleground, and as the villainous Decepticons struggle to obtain the key to unlimited power, a young Earthling named Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) may stand as mankind's last hope for survival.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Divorced from reality, even movie reality, Transformers becomes an action film in traction. Its relentless product placement makes it seem like a 2hr. 22min. General Motors commercial. And the film has just enough collisions to be a crashing bore.
Fresh: The action sequences are so turgid it's sometimes hard to tell which 'bot is doing what, but with Bay steadily hurling fireworks you won't really pause much to think about that, or about how truly inane the story is.
Rotten: With Transformers, director Michael Bay has once again claimed the year's top honors for loud, stupid filmmaking.
Fresh: The welcome mat is out for Michael Bay's cheerfully dopey saga inspired by the popular shape-shifting toys from the '80s.
And Now, To Review The Actual Movie
Since the review should be about the movie, and not whether the movie is available to buy, I want to say I REALLY liked Transformers. A big fan of the original cartoon and collecting the toys as a kid, I was nervous to see the live action film version. Could it only disappoint? Especially after all those less than ok "second generations" of the Transformers tale, and seeing that everyone's favorite Bumblebee character was no longer a VW bug, but a camaro? Well, it was fantastic! It was great to see some of the characters adapt and come to life in this version, and the movie provides great action, really good humor and plenty of realistic effects for anyone, not just fans of the old collectibles. But it can only be even more exciting for fans when they are finally re-introduced to Megatron, Optimus, Jazz and more. The film does a great job of creating the feeling of helplessness for humans, which would only make sense against technology like the Transformers. I couldn't help buy find my hands continuously gripping the arm rests tighter, and that was during my second watch! Minus a few cheesy scenarios or brief moments that seem to creep into many an action movie, I'm happy to be an owner of the movie for my personal collection.
One of the best movies of 2007
This movie is great, even to new commers of the whole series. Shia does an amazing job, the soundtrack is awesome and the special effects/sounds are "out of this world."
