Let me start off with this statement: "Transformers isn't a bad film". I was surprised to learn I didn't mind it because director Michael Bay in my humble opinion, has made the worst films in the recent cinema history.
Let me run the titles of a few atrocities at you. Bad Boys 1 and 2. Armageddon. The Island. Pearl Harbour. The Rock. Agreed? OK lets move on.
Transformers doesn't have an engaging story line. It doesn't have any stand-out acting. And it doesn't have any characters to identify with. But what it does have, and the sole reason this film is so enjoyable, is mind blowing cinematics of robot fight scenes.
To combat what could have easily just been a stock standard robot fight flick, Bay has introduced some incredible cinematics which will have you wondering just how it was achieved. This is very much out of place for a Michael Bay production, which only made sense when I saw the words "Executive producer Steven Spielberg" during the end credits. Let's face it. It's hard to go wrong when Steven Spielberg is your executive producer, and he isn't going to allow a piece of crap to be released with his name on it.
As a kid I never got into Transformers so I was probably at a slight disadvantage going into the movie, but none-the-less it was a great ride and if you don't mind skipping through all the boring parts you should get great replay value from it.
