Movie Reviews Transformers - Robert's Review
A long time ago, far away on the planet of Cybertron, a war was being waged between the noble Autobots (led by the wise Optimus Prime) and the devious Decepticons (commanded by the dreaded Megatron) for control over the Allspark, a mystical source of great power that gave them life. The Autobots managed to smuggle the Allspark off the planet, but Megatron blasted off in search of it. He eventually tracked it to the planet of Earth (circa 1850), but his reckless desire for power sent him right into the Arctic Ocean, and the sheer cold forced him into a paralyzed state. His body was later found by Captain Archibald Witwicky, and before going into a cryogenic comatose state Megatron used the last of his power to engrave a map, showing the location of the Allspark, into the Captain's glasses, and send a transmission to Cybertron. He was then carted away by the Captain's ship. A century later, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) buys his first car. To his shock, he discovers it to be Bumblebee, an Autobot in disguise who is to protect him, as he bears the Captain's glasses and the map carved on them. But Bumblebee is not the only Transformer to have arrived on Earth – in the desert of Qatar, the Decepticons Blackout and Scorponok attack a U.S. military base, causing the Pentagon to send their special Sector Seven agents to capture all "specimens of this alien race," and Sam and his girlfriend Mikaela (Megan Fox) find themselves in the middle of a grand battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons, stretching from Hoover Dam all the way to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, within the depths of the Sector Seven, the cryogenically stored Megatron awakens...
Movie Reviews Transformers - Brett's Review
"Transformers" is the absolute of what an awesome comic movie should be. I have waited many years for someone to put out the perfect sci-fi movie and "Transformers" is that pinnacle. The Earth is caught in the middle of an intergalactic war between two races of robots, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, which are able to change into a variety of objects, including cars, trucks, planes and other technological creations. From the moment I found out Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg were making a movie based on the cartoon phenomena of the 80's-90's I was kind of apprehensive, (the same feeling I had when I heard about the LOTR trilogy). So when the night came for us to file into the theatre, the excitement was already reaching a high point, and then the lights dimmed and the credits rolled. The next 2 hours and 23 minutes were kind of a blur as I became swept into one of the best movies I think I have ever witnessed in my life, I became so engrossed in the story, the humor, and the CGI that I totally forgot I was at a movie theatre. After the movie ended all I wanted was to see more, I wanted it to continue and take me further down the rabbit hole. "Transformers" is the first movie that mixes real life and CGI flawlessly, the Autobots, and the Decepticons were simply put…incredible. I absolutely loved this movie and if you grew up with Transformers then you will love it, if you didn't then you will still love it. I plan on seeing this movie over and over and over again in the theatres to see if I can re-create the excitement, the thrill, and the imagination that this movie has offered.
Overall Rating: 6 Autobots (out of 5) Re-Watch Value: Incredibly HIGH (Theatres many times and DVD Collector's edition when available.)
Trivia: (1) According to Lorenzo di Bonaventura, working out the transformations was done with the help of a mathematical equation, which explained where each of the parts of the robot went when it become a vehicle. (2) The Decepticon Soundwave was originally in the script, but was replaced with Blackout (who had originally been named Vortex, and later Incinerator). He is to appear in the film's sequel.
