    I still don’t get the negativeness towards the first movie. Was it perfect? No, but it was damn entertaining for a summer blockbuster.

    I look forward to more summer big robot action.

    I thought the first movie could’ve been a LOT worse!

    Giant robots fighting + Megan Fox = Great popcorn movie!

    Plus it was suitable for me to take my 10 year old son to. Something that it getting rarer and rarer with blockbuster films nowadays.

    Yes, the ONLY redeeming value of the first Transformers travesty were Megan Fox’s Bewbs

    I only have 2 real complaints with the first. John Turturro’s role was ludicrous and was a total waste of his talent and should have been editted out. And the other is the faces of the transformers. The only one I really liked was Jazz. The rest were just a bit too busy looking. Regardless, my 4 year old is now a huge Transformers fan and I have a great excuse to play with the toys again. So more big robot action is always welcome in my book.

    agrees with RussyH. Honestly with Michael Bay films i dont go in expecting too much so Transformers was great. I just had a nerdgasm over that poster though, looks awesome.

    In His Bayness I Trust

    He promised “Giant Fucking Robots” in the first go around and delivered. I’m a huge Transformers fan, and I’ll go with it. My love and loyalty lies with the animated movie from 1986. My allegiance would swing His Bayness got Judd Nelson to voice a part in the sequel.

    I liked the first movie…

    I didn’t think it was flawless, but I think it managed to stay true enough to the original source material.
