Has anyone seen this yet? Went last night and it was awesome, Michael Bay was the right man for this movie. No cheesy parts (except for the "your a soldier now" part), tons of actually funny parts, and good acting for an action movie. The special effects were fantastic, the Transformers looked great, I'd even pay to see it again. Can't wait for it to come out on BluRay and getting to see it in HD.

It was lame and there was a sappy love story.....the effects were pretty cool though. Stallion did you wear your Octomus Prime helmet:confused:

No, in fact I don't really remember the transformers other than the toys when I was a kid. I didn't think it was lame either, but I also don't enjoy movies like Fried Green Tomatoes so maybe that's why you didn't like it?

Portman was 16 too, wasn't she?

Seriously, I'd like to go and see The Transformers, but I'm a little worried about "The Michael Bay Factor". He's kind of like Mike Keenan: he can take something that could be alright and fcuk it up beyond recognition.

Evidence: Pearl Harbour & Armageddon (arguably one of the worst movies of all time).

The Island was a pleasant surprise, but Bay kills me with his brutal love stories all the time. I'm hoping he doesn't screw up a subject matter that could be pretty damn cool.

I agree that he wrecks movies (also add Miami Vice) but he was definitely the guy for this movie, like I said before, it's awesome.

Miami Vice was Michael Mann. And Michael Mann is awesome. He also did Heat which was spectacular.

I always thought it was Michael Bay, woops. Heat was good, but Vice sucked.
Heat was just Miami Vice about ten years later. Cheesy but cool...just like that shaver they used to market to guys that hoped to make themselves look like Don Johnson with a bit of a shadow. Struttin' down the Drive in the peach coloured suit with the white wife beater underneath (ring a bell SCK?).

It was called the "Miami De-Vice".

I am serious.

OK, went and saw it tonight and I've got to agree with I-tie_Stallion. Good action, some amusing bits, and some over-the-top-in-excess transformations.

A must for the big screen.

OK... I'm guilty too... both of going to see the flick... and for perving at the young hautness.

Yes... I was entertained. Great FX.

Mostly one long car commercial. They didn't quite fit enough shots of the Chevy logo into the flick though. Another four or five hundred would have been better.

Overall it was mildly entertaining I guess. Completely geared toward the pre-teen and teenage audience though. I've seen less kids at Disneyland than were at the movie. Where were the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll? Where were the girl-on-girl love scenes? Why the fcuk did Jazz not transform into a huge, autobot vibrator and diddle the hot, young chick?

Bumblebee was pretty cool until he uttered the cringe-inducing "I want to stay with the boy" line. Christ, who is he, Michael Jackson now?

Optimus was allright but I was honestly expecting him to kick a litle more ass. Pulling StarScreams arms off and beating KNVB over the head with them would have been a good way to engage viewers I think.
