awesome. even the bird liked it. its not gone with the wind but it does exactly what it set out to do

go see it.
It looks like even Paris Hilton would be intellectually offended by it. I don't think I could bear wasting money on such a blatant formula-led piece of mindless shiite. The whole film seems like a really cheesy parody.

Saw the Simpsons Movie yesterday. Pretty good and the kids loved it.

I grew up with the cartoons and the film does it justice, I felt like a 6 year old all over again! The bit where Prime and Megatron go toe to toe is awesome. Its not Issac Asimov, but it not really meant to be.

I never saw transformers originally, does this mean that I would not understand it/like it?

No its still an enjoyable film in its own right. If 20 foot robots beating the s*** out of each other appeals to you go and see it, you just wont have the nostalgia factor.

Thanks AM

Poison Dwarf, what an incredibly joyless person you are! You sound like the critic in the Telegraph who said:

"The film is best enjoyed without one's critical faculties being hindered by worries about concepts such as subtlety, wit or intelligence"

and

"Transformers practically screams at you to switch to auto-moron setting"

If you want Jean de Florette, go and see that. If you want to enjoy yourself, go and see Transformers. Don't go to see Transformers if you really can't enjoy a film if it does not have depth of characterisation, motivational angst and emotional development - you really need to take yourself a bit less seriously.

I also note that you haven't actually seen the film, but have no problem judging it 'sight unseen'. It's fun - go on, treat yourself, switch of your literary mind and enjoy yourself for 2 hours!

just got back from watching it a while ago. has to be one of the top films since lord of the rings. the graphics of the transformers was so good you could forgive yourself for thinking that robots that turn into cars and tanks where using this planet to stage a war. the perfect mix of action and comedy.
a film you could see again and again and still see fit to buy the DVD and game!! 9/10 the only thing that could top this film is transformers 2...

Looking forward to taking my 3 sons to see this, if only for the CGI.
Watched the Simpsons movie yesterday..disappointed to say the least.. it should have been left on the tv screen IMHO.

Been waiting my whole life for this and I wasnt let down, it is the dog's gonads!!

The special effects were truly the best you'll ever see, they looked even better in a digital screening. Best CGI scene was Starscream swatting those F22s from the sky one by one.

It was funny as f*ck too, lots of LOL moments in the first hour, mainly centred around hormones, and the Indian call centre scene was sublime. Eye candy was provided in the shape of the cute-assed Megan Fox. :p

The plot was hokum admittedly and some of the Transformers werent true to the series but the relentless CGI action setpieces more than make up for it.

If you're a Transformers purist you might be a tad disappointed but the tongue-in-cheek approach was, I believe, the right way to go in the end.

Film of the year I reckon, just switch off your brain and enjoy!

Autobots...deploy!

Only thing that concerns me is the use of the word "masturbation" and theres a few uses of "sh*t" too, maybe too much for a 12A rated film.

Be warned!
