I never seen the original 80's cartoon series, but only the ones made near around the year 2000, which I didn't care much for at all. Though, I loved both Transformers 1 and 2! I really liked the special affects (which the transformations looked much better than any of the cartoon versions imo), the action, comedy, and some of the characters. Just about everybody in my family loves these movies! I will never understand why people don't like these movies.

I grew up watching the original Transformers cartoon when I was a small child in the 80's. They hold a special place in my heart and always will. Michael Bay's Transformer movies seem to be geared toward the YouTube generation and not the original fans who grew up with the series. I felt that the robots should have been the central focus of the movies and the story should have been told from their perspective not the annoying actors. To me, the first movie was nothing more than a lame ass comedy with terrible actors telling stupid immature jokes, robots fighting occasionally and of course Megan Fox for all the horny teenage boys. Just because these movies have a lot fancy special effects and big explosions doesn't necessarily make them good movies.

The 80's cartoon movie was much better. Though it has cheesy 80s music and very much a product of the time it actually feels much more timeless then these live action transformers movies.

I like Michael Bay. I think he generally has a fairly good grasp on what people want to see and executes itself effectively. I was never a big follower of Transformers as a child, but I really enjoyed the first one an awful lot.

Upon going to see the second one, I had heard almost exclusively negative reviews. However, I for one really enjoyed it. I though.
@Kid_A This movie did not take itself seriously at all. If anything it was the complete opposite. If you don't believe I suggest you rewatch various scenes, in particular every single one with John Turturro. I mean seriously, he works at a butchers with his mum lol.

Unfortunately, the biggest thing for and against this movie is Megan Fox. Sure, she is a babe, but she can't act for peanuts. With a bigger role this movie compared to the first, I think people are starting to realise this fact.

I will point out though that my favourite part, the whole adventure quest thing, was the part most people seemed to hate. Maybe I saw this film on a day I was feeling merciful? Shrug.

Transformers: OK, too many scenes with the people and the fact I had to wait 30 minutes for the movie to really get going was my problem with it. The one thing that absolutley ruined it for me was that it made Optimus look so damn weak, then made the decpticons look so weak becuase they were able to be killed by humans.......WTF! The few action scenes that it had with fighting robots were decent enough to keep me watching the movie. But it took too many wrong turns. It failed to even show a relationship between Starscream and Megatron, then failed to supply us with the proper Trasformers in the movie. 5 Autobots was just not enough to make the movie seem like Transformers. On a 5 star scale I give it a 2/5.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: More action saves this movie from getting below 2 stars and having more autobots, Starscream and Megatron relationship, and what the first movie needed was great. But it just plain messed up everything else. The Twins made me want to tear my own heart out, the comedy was so bad that it felt like my childhood was ripped from my soul, and then introducing new characters that could be great, but had no personallity (or names for that matter) were just horrible mistakes: 2/5...
Original Transformers Movie: 4/5 Enough said!

They were both terrible movies. I guess you could get some enjoyment out of them for the action sequences but despite what Michael Bay thinks a movie cannot be one long series of them without burning the audience out. Dialogue, plot, pacing, setting and anything subtle is utterly alien to him
And he even made some of the Transformers racial stereotypes. What a douchebag Michael Bay is.

I saw the second one earlier this year and it was honestly the worst film that I have ever seen.

I didn't have a clue what was going on, it was totally boring, and when I needed to go to the toilet with 20 minutes left, I didn't even mind. I actually bumped into a friend in the toilet who was also seeing it and he agreed how bad it was.

ugh

WTF? What is wrong with you people? Bad acting? Comedy? Characters? Hard to follow? There is nothing wrong with any of these. Like I said in my last post, I really liked these movies. Though, when I first saw the Transformers 1 commercials, I thought it was going to be like the stupid old boring, untrusting, and cheesy cartoons with pretty modern day special effects. Well, I did get pretty special affects, but I also got a great comedy, decent story, and great characters.

I give Transformers 1 about a 4/5, and a 8/10.

I give Transformers 2 about a 4.5/5, and a 9/10, because it is about that much better the previous movie.

@Link-Hero: It was kinda hard to follow, you have to know what face means what on the vehicles, and that was very confusing for me. I agree with everything else.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Decent story, and great characters are Transformers. I wouldn't call the comedy great, I'd call it decent at the best.

Both Transformers movies were the biggest nonsense I've ever seen. Entertaining nonsens, but still nonsense.

I've put up with Sony lovers. I've put with with Sunshine haters. But, someone trying to tell me that the Transformers movies had some redeeming qualities, is a step too far. Enjoy.

Not really. Before I watched the first movie, I didn't know it was going to that type of movie, so I kinda got confused by some of the crazy and fasted paced scenes. Besides that, it is not that hard to follow. Though, when I saw it a second time, I didn't have this problem one bit. So when I went out to see the second movie, I was prepared this time, and didn't really have this problem.

In my opinion, I liked most of the characters, even some of the human characters, and I also thought it had some great and funny moments.

Yes, this is all my opinion about the Transformers movies. I tend to stick with it.
