Transformers Mini-Review

Transforming robots from the planet Cybertron have traveled to earth in search of The Allspark, a robo-mythical device holding ancient powers. The evil bots, the Decepticons want to use its power for their evil deeds, whilst the good bots want to protect it.

And there it is. The plot for a two hour over-the-top action extravaganza featuring giant robots skating, fighting and blasting each others to pieces. It works for me, in fact I think it’s one-hundred times better than Armageddon, the emphasized being an actual line from the movie. For what it tries to be, Transformers is so good that I’m willing to look past all ridiculous things in this movie. Things such as bots that coincidentally choose to transform themselves to only GM cars, one funky bot called “Jazz” and an Xbox 360 bot.

Finally I thought it interesting to see Michael Bay poke fun at the current president (“Could you wrangle up some ding-dongs, darling?”). I also noticed the apparent lack of American flags, present in most other Bay movies.

All in all, Transformers is eminently watchable, especially on the big screen. Make no mistakes: 4 stars is a lot for a movie based on plastic toys from the 80ies.

  1. I personally never really followed the cartoon storyline but I must say that I was truly blown away with the film. Amazing effects, great action, and great delivery with the plot. Looking forward to part II.

    There’s going to be a part 2? I’d love it.

    Thanks for the review, I did have my doubts about the movie, instead of writing a review, I looked up some funny transformer shirts to show

    I saw it the other day, and I have to say I genuinely loved it to pieces. I was at first quite sceptic about the whole thing as I never saw any fun in those transformer thingies, but boy did the movie ROCK!

    As an entertaining action movie I sure would give this 10 out of 10!
