Young teenager Sam Witwicky becomes involved in the ancient struggle between two extraterrestrial factions of transforming robots, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons. Sam holds the clue to unimaginable power and the Decepticons will stop at nothing to retrieve it.
I never watched the Transformers tv series, but I was real impressed with the trailers for this movie. I was even more impressed with the movie itself. The story line was easy to follow even for those that had never seen the show, it was action packed, and the characters were likable. The only negative thing I would say is that I don't really care much for Megan Fox's character.
It was the best fun I’ve had in years. No, I don’t mean to imply that I haven’t been having fun in the last years, but that the movie was so amazing. Brilliant! Optimus Prime rules! The movie even had Peter Cullen reprise his role and give his voice to the movie Optimus! Eighteen billion stars!
I remember all those Saturday mornings my sister and I spent watching cartoons on RPN 9 (Saturday Fun Machine) and one of our favorite cartoons (bukod sa Gummie Bears, Pandamonium, Black Star and syempre, the Superfriends)was the Transformers. Ate Majalla’s first love (hahaha!) was Optimus Prime, and when he died in the movie cartoon about three years later, waaaah!
What I liked best besides the robots themselves and the goofy but lovable Witwickys was the fact 404pxtransformers07
that US military supremacy was dunked liked so many mushy donuts in a vat of boiling joe.
US military might took a serious beating in that film — the troops were reduced to reviving antiquated telegraphs and walkie-talkies that looked like car batteries for all their size and heft just so they could communicate with the Air Force and seek help.
The Decepticon attack in the first part of the film wiped out an entire US military base in Qatar — flattened and leveled everything. I had a hard time not cheering and yelling ‘Yay, Decepticons!’ because, of course, we are all supposed to be on the side of the the Autobots.
When Starscream (whom I particularly hated in the cartoons) shot a few military jets clear out of sky later on in the film, I wanted to hell ‘Stupid Airforce! How the hell do they think they can fight against a robot plane that’s like 20,000 years technologically more advanced?!" )
There were some reviews on Rotten Tomatoes saying that the movie was brainless and heartless.
On the brainless issue, well, if you lack an imagination and you take the movie too seriously, you won’t like the film (and you shouldn”t go because it’s all about crashing and twisting metal and debris flying every which way); but on the accusation that it’s heartless?
Sam and his family were pretty likable. They were a happy, normal and close family, their relations warm but never syrupy, and it felt good to watch the three of them interact (and how they took care of their pet Chihuaha, Mojo).
It was also touching how Sam fought for his car which turned out to be the Autobot Bumblebee (in the tv cartoons, Bumble Bee’s ‘owner’ was a younger boy named Spike)when the military swooped in subdued Bumble Bee by blasting him with cryogenic sprays.
I don’t really mind that the Autobots in the movie didn’t have carry their original car models as in the cartoon; pero I did feel a little annoyed that Bumble Bee wasn’t a VW Beetle.
So here I am and I keep making the sounds the Transformers make when they , uh, transform and i think it’s getting on the nerves of some of the people here.
Go watch Transformers and have a real blast. I am indebted to Michael Bay for bringing my childhood back to life. I’ve heard that there are going to be TWO sequels. Walang sinabi ang Spider-Man.
Beyond Good. Beyond Evil. Beyond Your Wildest Imagination. This was the theme of the Transformers movie cartoon.
When the movie came out, i really did not have a chance to watch it, until about 1-2 years later my father's friend got me the disk.The movie was amazing. The action scenes with the Decepticons was TERRIFIC. Great use of CG. EVERYTHING about it was good.
I liked the scene with the Transformers in Sam's backyard, accidently breaking things like when Optimus Prime accidently broke a water fountain and said : "My bad" XP
