Wow, in spite of the rave reviews from my posse, I went into Transformers expecting it to be a huge stinkburger.
Was I ever wrong.
Can I nitpick problems with it? Sure, but honestly, I don't want to. Why? Because it was a fucking FUN movie to watch. Seriously fun.
The effects were great. The plot, considering the source material, was actually not too bad. The acting was good for all of the major characters. There were a few secondary character casting choices I questioned, but ya know, the movie was still FUN, so I don't really care.
This was damn enjoyable. I'd go see it again in the theater without hesitation.
