Well, I watched it, and liked the first ten minutes.
As a Transformers film, it was an abomination. As a film about robots fighting... it was very boring.
CG just doesn't impress me, unfortunately.
The real bits were good... I enjoyed the tanks flying through the air and exploding. As soon as the hideous, spindly-looking Lego Bionicle CG robots came on screen and the camera started jerking around and shaking so that I could'n't see anything for any of the actions scenes, I kind of switched off. The final battle in the city was a confused mess, with no focus whatsoever and the camera shaking around as though held by a drunken child.
Since when did massive alien war machines swing about the place like monkeys? Where were the characters? When "Megatron" (who looked and sounded nothing like Megatron) appeared, all he said was "I am Megatron" and that was all the characterisation he got.
Awful film. If only they'd let the guy who did the Silent Hill movie direct it instead. He would have actually watched an episode of the original show for reference... something Michael Bay obviously didn't do.
I'm going to make a movie about President Lincoln. I don't know anything about American history, but that doesn't matter. I won't look at any history books. In the film, Lincoln will be played by Lucy Liu, and will be a kung fu Japanese lesbian ninja. And when people complain that the characters look and act nothing like the real ones did, I'll just tell them that Transformers was a massive success, so I thought I'd try the same approach.
