Has anyone had a chance to see the new Transformers movie yet? I am thinking of going today, but the movie is freaking two and a half hours!!! I just don't want it to be a waste of my time. What did you guys think of it?

    It's the kind of movie where you take your girlfriend along but leave your brain back at home.

    I'm sorry but if you're going to see this movie for the plot or storyline, you're dumb. It's a great flick, I loved it. And if I hear anyone else whine about the Twins being racial caricatures I'll flip out.. people are too serious these days.

    The twins reminded me more of Jar Jar Binks than a black stereotypes.

    I'm in C3's boat but we're going tomorrow.

    Megan Fox does nothing for me and the Transformers universe does nothing for me. T1 was enjoyable but I couldn't watch it more than once.

    Frustratingly, I can't decide whether Shia LeBoeuf (sp?) is a good young actor or a really annoying young actor.

    I'm gonna watch it for some kick ass CG, some good senseless action, and to see a major corporation troll a bunch of transformer diehards

    So I saw the movie, and I honestly think that the CG was by far the best I've seen, ever. The effects were amazing (explosions as well).
    Plot.....meh, but everyone already knew that. Bottom line, it's a good mindless entertainment.

    sometimes I find myself in the mood for some good senseless action that has a semblance of a plot...

    Don't bother, go see The Taking of Pelham123 instead.

    I'm with TAK on this. Why do we forgive this in a film? In games we don't, especially if they give the impression there's a story there, we expect it to be worthwhile. (Okay, so I'm a total bitter G1 1980's fanboi kid on this, but bear with me) Personally, I find 'mindless' and 'entertainment' to be something of a contradiction.

    You know, there is such a thing as too much CGI/stuff happing onscreen. In this case the transformers are of course CGI (d'oh), but they (the bots) are very cluttered, making the scenes very very cluttered to the point where you lose track of who is fighting who sometimes (same thing as the first flick). Add to this all the jittery camera movements and random explosions and you've got yourself an explosion of pixels coming after you with a vengeance!

    And how in the hell do those humans survive all this being bashed around like ping pong balls during the entire movie. Too much luck in not getting stomped on or crushed by giant robot is almost to the point of being annoying...


    Other then that it was a good BOOM! KABLAM! BIFF! KABOOOM! movie... I think...

    Yeah I had that same reaction after I came out of the theater all brain numb from the asplodeys.. but afterwards no... I decided it was not very entertaining at all. I can't freaking describe anything that happened in the supposedly glorious robofights. I mean, you can make G1 transformers look good in CG too with the bonus of you can tell what is actually happening. To extract more entertainment after watching the movie, I had to turn to FAQ's and reviews that take the mickey out of the movie so that I don't regret the tickets too much.

    hehe, that's a good read ZeroByte

    Also isn't this a much cooler Devestator then the one in the movie which looks more like a pile of metal trying to resemble some kind of whirlpool of sand sucking maddness?

    Also(1) anyone else think the name Witwicky is a pun to the oldschool WIHT WICK KIH! Transform sound. A sound we only hear once in either movie (it wasn't even in this one, instead it was in the beginning of Transformers 1)
