      I grew up with Transformers. I owned Optimus Prime, watched the cartoons, knew the theme song. So there was both great anticipation and a small amount of dread when I heard that Michael Bay was producing a live action, CGI filled Transformers movie.

      The anticipation came because this was a chance to relieve my childhood. The dread came from worrying that the result wood be campy and


      unwatchable - the fate of other childhood memories remade on the big screen, from the Fantastic Four to Scooby Doo.

      However, it seems I had nothing to worry about. Sure, Transformers is not LOTR, but it is a solid, action packed movie, without any of the cringe inducing acting and dialogue that mars most movies of this genre.

      The special effects are amazing and relentless. The Transformers ...


      • seem like they could actually exist.

        (And the sound effect when they transform is a great homage to the originals). My complaints are minor.

        Both the Autobots and the Decepticons look too similar in their robot forms. When they’re fighting, its next to impossible to tell them apart, except for Optimus and Bumblebee.

        And the over the top product placement of GM vehicles is ridiculous.

        I have no problem with Bumblebee switching from a VW bug to a Camaro - but every Autobot a GM vehicle with excessive and gratuitous shots of the logos.

        Transformers is not a movie for kids, either (except those who may be in their late twenties/early thirties and haven’t actually grown up yet) It is violent, with rough language and suggestive scenes. All the more reason I loved it.
