I was so looking forward to seeing this. Sadly the thought of what this movie might be like was far better than sitting through it. I just felt let down by the entire movie. It looked great in places and the sound was incredible. Everything else was just bland and dull. And the ending was stupid.
I mostly enjoyed this first Transformers film. The plot was decent enough to justify all the robot fights, the CGI-robots weren't too bad, Optimus and Megatron were pretty good. The fights were solid. The human actors were average. Overall a good popcorn flick. Avoid the sequels.
Great superhero movie
This is what a superhero movie should be. The few errors i detected were completely overrun by the great action and good characterization. Whedon does a great job with the ensemble cast and showcases each hero in the best light. Two and a half hours, packed with lots of action and little plot. But 'The Avengers' is thrilling. No matter what happens, you want to keep watching it.
