I thought this movie mostly kicked ass! I’ll admit I was a little disappointed that Bumble Bee wasn’t a vw bug, but, hey, he was a bitchin’ camaro, and that’s not bad. I wish they would have focused more on the transformers as characters. It seemed more like a disaster movie that just happened to have transformers as the disaster.

Same here…Hated all this crap with the parents and the stupid love story.
I wanna see Autobats fighting Decepticons for the whole movie! XD
April 24, 2010 at 3:36 pm
Honestly I hated this movie and the sequal as well..
The jokes are incredibly dumb, the love story is stupid and I feel like the Transformers brand has been shat on.. Both are some of my all time hated movies ^^

I really liked this movie for a few reasons: It introduced me to the love of my life Megan Fox(pathetic…I know…but true) and it was bad ass over all. Peter Cullen back as Optimus was totally fuckin awesome and Hugo Weaving(Smith from the Matrix films and V from V for Vendetta) was a great Megatron. I even liked Revenge of the Fallen and am looking forward to the third film. As for the G.I. Joe movie, I thought it sucked ass and as for the Thundercats movie that still on the shelf at Warner Brothers, I am looking forward very much to it and hope they don’t royally fuck it up and with that…thunder…thunder…thunder…Thundercats HOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Maby someday the god of movies will come down and make a perfect movie that pleases EVERYONE. I cant ever say iv seen a movie that was absolutly perfect in the TRUE SENSE OF THE WORD; and is anyone else strait up annoyed at the huge (for lack of a better word) number of remakes. It seems peoples standards are set so high (including my own) that no movie completely blows my mind. Which whould problobly make me uforic. Which could only happen if we lived in a universe governed not by the laws of physics but by gods. Obviusly if this kind of stuff happens, it meens the universe is cold and calculated, and there is no god or anything but humans to bring sense to this world. It is our responsability as intelligent life forms to bring some balance to this univeres, AND TO FINALY MAKE A PERFECT MOVIE! JAMES ROLF IS THE MAN FOR THE JOB. JAMES! I CALL UPON YOU TO CREAT THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
April 27, 2010 at 9:38 pm
Lol just joking. Sorry if that sounded like I was being fuseashus about James making the greatest movie ever. I think I made my point anyway. And sorry if mentioning god is against the rules. . I live to comment
April 27, 2010 at 9:42 pm
I totaly agree with james about the movie
May 22, 2010 at 8:43 am
This movie is just crap. A huge steaming bunch of recycled crap!!!
The story doesn’t make sense : if the decepticons would have a minimum of intelligence (I guess really advanced robots can’t be smart…), the movie could have been over in less than 10 minutes : instead of bullying that dumbass kid to get the glasses, they could have simply bought them (since they were on ebay), then used them to find the cube and finally conquer the earth. The end.
May 22, 2010 at 10:40 am
The perfect movie?!? I’m afraid Mr. Rolfe cannot possibly make the perfect movie. It’s already been done. I submit to you!!! *dramatic pause* *que music* *hero turns away, biting the knuckle of index finger*
“Big Trouble in Little China”
May 27, 2010 at 2:30 pm
Big Trouble in Little China!?
That pales next to the true god of movies………Operation Condor!!

The first one was alright. It didn’t suck, but after you watch it a couple of time, it’s not mind blowing.
But the shit can sequel sucked the mother of the big ones. Their are so many flaws in the movie and if you watch HOW TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN SHOULD HAVE ENDED, they spot out more flaws than you thought. The big descepticon was named Devistator, the same name as the tank from the first movie. They brought back Blackout just to kill him again by Optimus Prime(they called him something else but that’s still horseshit). And if you notice enough when the camera is rotating around the cars moving, for about 3 seconds you see a blue car, a character you never see in the movie. Another thing, in the desert (why do they have to have battles in the desert again) after the Descepticons crash, you can see the veichle for BoneCrusher (Guess they didn’t want to waste it). The knew characters don’t do any justice. Oh and one last thing, if Megatron is Optimus Prime’s brother, like they say in the first movie, doesn’t that make him a prime, so….Optimus isn’t the last one…or…..srcew it.
They better improve on the third one. Or i’m going to be pissed.
July 2, 2010 at 2:29 pm
Transformers was friggin’ awesome, they say Michael Bay can’t make good movies, well talk a look at this and see if you think differently. (Pearl Harbour wasn’t bad either).
Too bad Revenge of the Fallen suffered, that had a bad ending, I mean, just loads of humans who can’t do a thing against Transformers fight loads of them and win and Optimus Prime should’ve kept the awesome Jetfire add-ons he got. The third one I think may fall down the same bad road, but who knows.
August 14, 2010 at 9:40 pm
Good one Beware77. I love Big Trouble in Little China.
But as for Transformers, no. I do not like it. It should have never been made. The people responsible should be shot. Yes, they Decepticons should have bought the glasses. Movie over.
I went in knowing the movie was crap, focusing almost exclusively on humans, and just happening to have Transformers in it some of the time. Rather than being ABOUT the transformers and having a few humans here and there to remind us it was on earth. It was so bad, I can’t even stomach the idea of seeing the sequel. When I see the title transformers, I’m thinking huge fucking robots beating the shit out of each other for varying reasons. Not some limp-dick retard being targeted through out a movie because he owns his grand-dads glasses.
August 25, 2010 at 7:24 am
having humans trying to take down transformers is like the army trying to take down Godzilla… and make about as much sense from a story perspective…. when you see a godzilla movie, do you go to see the dialogue between the human characters? No, you see it to see godzilla tear shit up and fight other monsters…. the same thing can be said about transformers. Do we see Transformers to see Shia buff the hood of bumblebee with Megan Fox’s ass? Albeit entertaining the first time, no we dont. We see it watch Optimus and company kicking the shit out of Megatron and all his henchmen…. of course Hollywood screwed up Godzilla, so I didnt have high expectations coming into Transformers….
September 5, 2010 at 5:49 am
I loved this movie, but the seond one as we all know was dogshit in comparison. I wish that the movie focused more on the Decepticon characters more. Most of them only have like one line and then they ie, espcially Devastator, the tank transformer, who was my favourite one.
September 5, 2010 at 4:18 pm
the movie was pretty good, the acting kinda sucked, especially Fox’s (but she’s REALLY nice)and the Transformers, holy crap, they were awesome, overall not bad, but dont recommend it
October 5, 2010 at 12:16 pm
I agree with James. Transformers is just cars transforming in robots. That’s all. It’s not a masterpiece, opposite to what many people say, it is just entertaining and it’s ok. Transformers have always existed just to sell toys, so they had to be nothing more.
What bothers me is that they say that Transformers 2 is the worst movie ever. They’re dumbasses! The second movie is at the same exact level of the first one! It just has some new transformers! The story is not deep, but it wasn’t in the first either.
It seems that people believed the first one to be a fantastic movie, and confront the second one with that idea of the first, not with what the first really is!
October 17, 2010 at 9:59 pm
I have to say, the only thing that pissed me off about the first Transformers movie was Bumblebee being a Camero. Other than that, except for Shitty Laboosh being a main character, the film was great. Transformers 2 however sucked shit covered rhino balls. Robot Heaven anyone?
November 10, 2010 at 12:46 pm
my favorite moment, the part that got me going, was when all the Autobots finally assemble and converge to go find Sam, then Optimus finally reveals himself. total ”nerdgasm.”
December 25, 2010 at 9:08 am
meh.. Didn’t like this one or the sequel so much. Just feels too wacky… The word “autobot” was the first thing to annoy me.. And some of the things these “autobots” say are just weird. Not a good movie, and I even think I’ve watched it twice for some reason.
December 27, 2010 at 6:24 pm
What really through me off about the sequel was the introduction of a “female” Decepticon Human/Pretender. It was completely pointless(like the twins) plus the idea of a robot taking the form of a attractive blond in order to seduce a lowlife guy is so out of place that they might as well called her “Melody Locus.”
January 16, 2011 at 8:52 pm
I thought this one was Ok at times, i agree with most of your gripes about it, like the love story and all that. I also hated the music in it, but.. at least the action and transformers animation was pretty fluent. I liked the second movie the first time I saw it, but now I really dislike it a lot and I’m not looking fordward to the third movie at all. Generally I really hate michael bay and how he directs movies.
March 16, 2011 at 12:10 am
it was a piece of horse shit micheal fucking bay is a ass hole he fucked it up big time and then made a second one which was even worse and had so many plot holes it was like watching a slice of Swiss cheese and then he had the balls to remake the nightmare on elm st
May 14, 2011 at 10:03 am
I only watched it for the Transformers…
May 24, 2011 at 12:19 pm
hey James could you review the sequels please i thought the second one was brilliant not as good as the first but th action was epic and devastator is in it and are you going to review transformers dark of the moon
May 31, 2011 at 5:54 pm
When r they gonna put unicron in the live action flims
May 31, 2011 at 6:00 pm
hey james dont mean to nit pick but devastator wasnt in this movie
March 31, 2012 at 2:25 pm
Yes he was, but they later renamed him to drag in a film version of the original Devestator.
June 11, 2011 at 6:54 am
You nailed it, James. I agree, except for the music (I am a big Linkin Park fan) and the CG pet peeve you have (no other way to really bring the mechanical feel to the next level until we can really make that shit). What really sucks about the stupid, cliche love story, besides the obvious, ironically played out in real life: the actors/actresses can be replaced as they outgrow/lose the parts (i.e. Megan Fox is not in Part 3). Part 2 was just an abomination. Those damn little, retarded hip-hop-bots really pissed me off as a hardcore fan. That is just Michael Bay bullshit to appeal to a “wider demographic”. That is such crap. So non-vanilla people won’t like your badass robot action movie if there is no hip-hop element? Assholes. Then they make Megatron seem a bit too much like a bumbling scaredy-cat at times. Also, what the fuck happened to Bumblebee’s voice? It was repaired in the first movie. I swear. These guys can’t even keep their OWN movies straight besides it being in line with the original story arc. Part 3 better not be like Part 2.
June 17, 2011 at 12:01 am
I hated this movie, the goddamn robots looks like a pile of junk, and the bad guys have not personality, megatron isn’t the magalomaliac that we used to love and starscream didn’t even say anything.
Maybe the kids that didn’t watch the old cartoon enjoy this filmical obscenity, but we, the old ones where seriously disappointed.
August 18, 2011 at 12:46 pm
The robots that were supposed to be black were simply too offensive, and the dumbasses in the theaters probably laughed their asses off at them. “Aww readin’ ain’t really our thang” What the fuck!?!?
October 27, 2011 at 11:04 pm
Ah yes Transformers. If it werent for Spielberg backing it up, I’d say fuck it. THIS is Michael Bay’s life in 3 topics:
2: Absurd sex references
Michael Bay in one word: Boom.
Spielberg saved this movie and its sequels in my opinion. Bay is just…no.
April 1, 2012 at 3:25 am
They’re making three other films now though, I hope he keep them in space. And I’d say fuck Bay then it comes to TMNT ! What the fuck.
He should just rename its title to Adult Alien Big-Boobied Explosions, like Doug from TGWTG glasses says.
January 28, 2012 at 5:20 pm
The first movie was very good the first time you see it but gets meh after a couple of views. The original prime voice rocked!! The 2nd movie was waaaay to slow and long and not good in general. The third is way better than 1st but not as good as the 3rd. Long live the Transformers Cartoon movie!!
April 1, 2012 at 3:24 am
The longer the better for me
But I know what you mean. It lacked some of the charm from the first one, but it was not that bad. Like what TMNT II is compared to TMNT: The Movie. And even there the third film were worst. Which is actually what most people say today. A few months back, they said differently though.
The Transformers: The Movie, on the other hand, rocks the world!
March 31, 2012 at 6:43 pm
will you review the third movie ??????
July 15, 2012 at 5:55 am
Who would win in a fight:Megatron vs Hulk

Sorry james this movie fucking sucked balls, i hated it an the next three got even worse i mean come on its about the transformers not about a stupid boy an his car, they could have started off right from the beginning just like the original cartoon story, i dont understand for someone like u how u could like this trash, id rather play one of the video games for three hours than watch this micheal bay piece of shit.
My name is Erik an thats my review of your Transformers review lol
July 18, 2013 at 1:07 pm
This movie ruined Bumblebee, one of the most beloved Autobots, and I can’t forgive it. What’s up with the bleeps and whistles? Is this R2D2 language? Where is the punch buggy we all know and love? He sounds more like a phone line internet connection than a talking robot. Also, what language is he speaking because he is clearly understood by his peers (even in Transformers Prime). To make it worse, they changed him from a Volkswagon Beetle to a Chevy Camaro. It’s granted that the new Camaros are hot as shit, but c’mon. That’s like like giving Wesley Snipes the roll of GI JOE’s Lifeline in a new movie. I mean, couldn’t they use the modern Beetle at least? They gotta change it’s ethnicity (in a matter of speaking)? Damn, just hook it up, that’s all. Give it nitrous, booster packs, chrome rims, or whatever. Bottom line, give us back Bumblebee in the next movie. AND whatever Michael Bay does in the next film, PLEASE… no Shai Laboufe!!! I’m tired of his only monotonous expression in every movie. Close your damn mouth for once, Asshole!

Personally I hated this film; it doesn’t help that I hate Shea LeBoeuf in every film he’s in (except Constantine where he gets slammed against a ceiling until he dies, classic), as he’s effectively just a young Nicolas Cage, a talentless, bland and totally uninspiring actor that lends nothing to a part.
That said, his character in the film wouldn’t have been any better with another actor, as his backstory is completely flimsy, his love interest vapid and annoying; in fact the vast majority of human characters were utterly irrelevant to the plot, which begs the question of why they even bothered making it live action in the first place.
Which brings me to the CGI; while the designs, and transformations of the transformers themselves were cool, the action was extremely badly directed, making it very hard to follow most action sequences, leaving them just a bewildering mess of CGI with no real emotional impact. Also, in their pursuit to make the transformers look more “realistic”, they’re also significantly harder to distinguish from one another, particular during the lurching “throw everything at the screen and hope it sells” action sequences, which serves to confound the entire thing.
To top it off there are attempts at heartwarming scenes and humour that are beyond cheesy, into the realms of forty year old foot cheese cheesy.
If not for my natural laziness, I wouldn’t have sat through the whole thing. I personally consider it one of those rare movies that I actually feel I can’t watch, yet somehow they manage to be hugely successful. I mean, it’s up there with Iron Man 3, which I would argue was one of the biggest wastes of money of all time, in terms of the quality of course, as the creators no doubt laughed their way to the bank.
