Everything in this movie is just wrong. Why did they change everything, why was it so stupid, why so much bad acting? I guess I was hoping for too much being a fan of the cartoon. Hopefully it can be fixed in the sequel, oh and the Baroness being Dukes fiance and from the States and no accent STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!!!!!!!!! Ok I'm fine now just need to relax and let it go.
I was surprised to find this to be so easy to like. Sure, it's not a "high-concept" action movie, but it provides a good time. The characters are likable enough to spend 2 hours with, and Shia LeBeouf works well in his CGI surroundings. This is a better-than-average Michael Bay movie. (I give it 2 paws, since I can't give it 2 1/2, and three seems borderline.)
Not good by any standard, but watchable.

The entire movie revolves around giant CGI robots fighting each other--nothing else. And for providing these fun, entertaining robot fights, I give it some credit. The movie doesn't deserve anything more, however, for the mediocrity that surrounds the lame acting and idiotic script (which, for the most part, lacks characterization and intelligent dialogue).
So if you're looking for a dumb, loud popcorn movie, look no further than Transformers. If you're in the mood for something a little classier, skip it. That's all there is to it.
Rex will live on as the infamous Cobra in G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. Michael B. Gordon did it again as a movie writer. When will we see more of his work? I rate this movie as a five star piece of entertainment. It has all of the plot twists, love triangles, and drama that you would expect in Gone with the Wind, yet rolled into a modern scifi adventure. I'll be waiting for the obvious sequel, for this movie took great pains to set up the whole past, present, and future of Team GiJoe while delivering a stand up plot of its own. See it soon.
THIS MOVIE IS A PERFECT COMBINATION OF WAR, ADVENTURE & SCI-FI, MICHAEL IS ONE OF THE BEST WRITERS IN HOLLYWOOD!!!
THANK YOU MICHAEL FOR ANOTHER EXCELLENT PIECE OF CREATIVE WRITING. 300 WAS A MASTERPIECE & G.I. JOE IS RIGHT BEHIND IT. LOOKING FORWARD TO (G.I.JOE >2< RETURN OF THE COBRA) WITH REX, ANA AND DUKE.....FROM YOUR BIGGEST FAN MARTHA firstname.lastname@example.org
Brilliant!! I have seen this movie atleast 20 times and each time there is something new that i am awed about. The concept and the transformations are just out of this world. Amazing level of detail taken care of.
