err i give this movie a 10/10!
GREAT movie!!! I'd go see it again, LOL. And Megan Fox
Megan Fox was def hot in this movie but holy shit, I would totally see this movie again in the theatres. I'd probably want to see it this time at the Ultrascreen (couldn't get tickets to that showing).
But man, this movie made me wet. -.-; *sigh* They stayed pretty true to the original series and the way they did the military stuff... hawtness...
I thought it was awesome
Saw it last night, great movie. I would definately see it again.
I have some issues with the characters and plot.
"It would have taken the best supercomputers 20 years to crack that firewall but it was down in 10 seconds"
"Sir, you need to think beyond the possibilities of foreign nations and get into more advanced explanations, like Quantum Physics"
Also, I still don't know why the main character was cast as he was. His character has no consistency, his 'arc' is to completely change himself from one character to another character. And the chick falling in love with him wasn't believable either. He does everything he could have possibly gotten wrong wrong. He's generally not a very relateable character.
The character development in the movie in general sucked. The 1-liners and CGI held it together.
Another movie where my list of complaints is just going to grow.
Every character in this movie, besides the transformers, had a major personality flaw.
'Decoding' team- worthless. Added nothing. Empty geek jokes turn me off to a movie, especially 'the only uber leet hacker in the world who can break the code' living in his moms house playing DDR. God I am so fucking sick of that stereotype. Every movie from now on that uses it automatically loses 5-star status, even if everything else is perfect, I can't stand that. None of the comedy from these guys was worth shit either, even though the chick was hot. If I wanted hot chicks, I'd watch porn.
'Sector Seven'- Completely useless and confusing. At first I thought those vans were decepticons in disguise, as that would have made infinitely more sense. When it becomes evident they are real, it also becomes evident how completely useless they are. Why the fuck were they in the movie?
Honestly I fell asleep during part of the middle, for about 15 minutes. The story just... stopped fucking moving. The movie was, as someone else said, about 40 minutes too long. There is too much suspense surrounding things EVERYONE knows are going to happen.
Some of the CGI was also... bad. The first fight scene between Bumblebee and the other guy, you can't even see anything. You have no clue what's going on, except transformers are fighting kind of off-camera, and then we see that Bumblebee won.
Main character- I have major issues with him. His character is terrible. There's a difference between 'underdog,' 'fish out of water' and 'completely inept, stupid kid with nothing going for him.' We have no reason to like him. The only funny thing he even did was call his dog a crackhead. That character needed more development. The main character is supposed to move the plot forward, he seems to slow it down, and his character, as I said, 'arcs' by 'transforming' into a completely different personality.
Near the end, Megatron is chasing him for 5 minutes. Why was he not dead. Makes no sense. Every time Megatron got close to someone, he'd like stop moving, sit there and stare at them.
Megatron: "Alright staring contest- GO"
The decepticons had nearly no story.
I think the movie should have focused MUCH more on the transformers, included the decepticons, and cut the useless subplots which added nothing, but bogged down an otherwise good movie with un-necessary plot that ruined it.
The Autobots were great. Even some of their semi-lame humor was still funny, because these huse as fuck robots from outer space said the stuff. The parents were funny, the female lead actually did a good enough job that I won't criticize her, even though it really doesn't make sense that she falls for the male lead. Some of the humor was decent. It was just too fucking long, and focused on inconsequential shit.
Also, the Quantum Physics comment... totally horrible. At least google 'Quantum Physics' before you put it in a movie.
none of that bothered me, the only thing that bothered me was "youre a soldier now!"
what series are you referring to???
not G1 for sure
usually i agree with plot holes and so forth, but this movie was so amazingly awesome i didn't even care that the transformers showed up when it was convenient for them to do so. plus many other plot holes but in all honesty, i got so excited when i saw optimus prime for the first time. just like being a kid again.
Id pretty much agree with what you said. This movie was fan-fucking-tastic start to end. I think im going to go see it again soon.
Oh and a big to all the Michael Bay haters.
It was fucking awesome.
7.5 outta 10 meh plot with awesome action and cgi
Went to see it today, good stuff *** 1/2
Its was the Transformers I wanted (ROBOTS KICKIN' ASS!). I am 30 and loved the 80's series growing up. All the Robots looked great (for something made in Japan, U know). I was diggin' how they changed from one form to another. Wanted to to take my 4 year old but the babies mom was giving me drama. Hell he cried because of it and was pissed when I came out talking about it. He got stuck watching Surfs Up with mommy. I will agree plot is kinda bland, but fair and that kid isn't that bad of an actor (loved the crackhead comment). Michael Bay did great and I really don't think someone else could beat it.
Jazz was ill. "What's up little bitches?"
You're honestly such a moron sometimes it hurts to talk to you.
Hey hey, watch it there partner. You're the one who reviews a movie and gives it an 8/10, and then later in a separate thread claims he given it said review without seeing it despite making comments to the CGI quality and commenting that you won’t give any spoilers in your first and unedited post .
THEN you continue the thread without adjusting said review which you (again) claimed to have given before you even watched it.
You have a truly dizzying intellect.
What kind of idiot, wanna be movie critic gives a movie he hasn’t even seen a review?
it would of been better if we could actually watch the main fight scene better
god i love listening to you guys argue
great movie, will see again.
and of course, the did the cliche of killing the only black transformer.
Does it turn you on?
I think you took too much of the movie to heart and the chick never says quantum physics, she says quantum mechanics.
You are a fag.
Do you have the vaguest idea what that term means, and how it is a complete non-sequitor to computer hacking?
Cinematic masterpiece that is constantly pounded with gutwrenching drama, perfect plot progression and endless character development.
It was a fun flick
