Default Whos going to see Transformers?

Any folks here who grew up loving/owning/watching Transformers? Anyone going to check out the movie?

Im seeing it tonight, hopefully it will be worth a crap. I see they changed Bumblebee's appearance and attitude. Should be interesting finally seeing the Transformers in something other than a cartoon format.

My husband is so excited that this movie is all he has been talking about. We're watching it Tuesday night. I watched a little bit of the show when I was a kid but I guess being a girl I'm just not that into it! Plus, the whole idea of robots coming to earth seem ridiculous to me. DH already told me I can't ask him questions like, "How is THAT POSSIBLE?" during the movie. My lips are sealed! Transformers .... more than meets the eye!

The special effects were awesome, the plot needed work, the actors were brilliant but the script was poor, etc. They humanized the Transformers a bit too much IMO (including a bizarre scene where Bumblebee pees on a S7 Agent), at times really goofy. Overall Id give it 7 out of 10, not bad, not good. Picture T2's graphics mixed in with a little Gone In 60 Seconds cheeziness.... does that help?

That helps,thanks Steve.And as far as the "pee" part,,, anything like that or anything with 'gas' puts my 11 yr old in stitches.I have a feeling there is already a "Transformer-the movie" aisle at Toys R Us.

Holy-moly I thought the movie rocked! I would give it 10 out of 10. I went into it with the expectation of "It's an action movie by Michael Bay about robots invading earth." I was sold! The only thing was I thought the end was a little choppy and could they have picked any hotter girls with tons of makeup, long legs, and boobs hanging out? Take your pick, blond or brunette, b'c there was one of each! A TON of action and the storyline flowed. How much more of a plot could you ask for with a movie about robots seeking a cube on earth? Can't get any more complicated than that!

I also thought Transformers was a 10 out of 10. I really felt the way they introduced the transformers to the world was well done. The special effects were beyond amazing. The only negative was the lack of the dinobots, which were my favorite of the autobots.

We took our 5 year old sons to see it on Saturday. They have been collecting Transformer toys for about 18 months now, especially the Decepticons. I like the toys too; they first came out when I was a kid. This was the kids' first movie to see at a theater, so they were so excited to see this movie. Anyway, they really enjoyed the movie and had a great time. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit, too. I wasn't expecting much of a plot going into this, so that wasn't a let down. I loved watching the special effects....pretty cool! Sam's parents were pretty funny. One of my sons was a little bummed that the Decepticons didn't win, but he got over that pretty quick.

I would have liked to see more of Megatron in the movie, and I thought the battle between Megatron and Optimus Prime was a bit anti-climatic. Oh well, I was still entertained and the 2 hrs 40 mins went by pretty quickly. I did enjoy the music in the movie, too.

Do any of you who have seen the movie think they will film a sequel? I think they left it open to that possibility.

I saw it on Friday with my 5 1/2 year old. The movie was truely great, I enjoyed it as much as he did. The special effects were great, the script was funny...all good. The only thing that was a little too much for his age group was a scene with the parents of the boy in his room asking if he had been materbating...luckily my 5 year old didn't seem to take note of it...I however was laughing my head off.
