This movie had the best visual effects I have ever seen. Go see it while it is still in the theaters! It was entertaining from begining to end.
Fun and visually cool. As a film - no two characters had any chemestry, the plot was full of holes and extraneous scenes, and the action was often difficult to follow.
Fun movie. Everything a big summer blockbuster should be.
wicked effects! brilliantly done!
Fantastic movie!!! I'm in my 40's and I absolutely enjoyed this movie!
I came to "Transformers" for the special effects. I haven't met one person who say that he saw the movie just for the acting. I love the special effects. I also love the battle between Autobots the and the Decerticons. Watching them battling each other is a total joy of watching this film. It's a cool movie. "Transformers Rule!"
This movie was mildly entertaining; probably more so for those for whom high school is still a going concern.
Any scene with Bumblebee as the new Camaro and especially with the new Mustang kept my interest. Other than that, things got slow and uninteresting pretty quickly. The beginning scene in the desert was kind of good, though.
The final battle was a big mess, and that's not just what they did to the streets of Los Angeles! Rapid-fire cutting means that you had to try and keep up with which robot you were looking at, where they were, and who they might be fighting. Just as you are about to get into it, snap! On to the next scene, fight, and robot. No time to care about anything that's going on, just pile on more action!
No thanks. I like my movies with more substance than this. Rent it and fast forward through the boring stuff and slow-mo the action so that you have a chance at appreciating the millions that went into the visual effects.
Definitely a Wait for Rental.
