    Synopsis


    Transformers
    The interstellar battle between the Autobots and Decepticons rains destruction down on planet Earth as director Michael Bay adapts Hasbro and Takara's popular Transformers franchise into a big-budget, live-action summer tentpole extravaganza in this ambitious sci-fi action feature starring Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, Bernie Mac, John Turturro, Jon Voight, and, of course, Optimus Prime and Megatron. Long ago, on the planet of Cybertron, a massive, powerful alien race divided into two factions, the noble Autobots, and the devious Decepticons. They fought for the sole access to a talisman known as the Allspark, a cube with the capacity to grant infinite power, and eventually the Autobots smuggled it off the planet's surface, hiding it in an unknown location on Earth. Now, hundreds of years later, the Deceptacons have come looking for it, and if the Autobots don't find it first, the Earth will be enslaved or destroyed by the evil aliens' use of its massive power. The Autobots don't know where the cube was hidden, but the information may be stored in the most unlikely of sources, as a gangly young Earthling named Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) who's just picked up his first car, has a strange connection to the Allspark's history, making him the unlikely ally of these enormous creatures, as they fight for humankind's survival and the chance to return home. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Transformers 4K - More Than Meets the Eye

      I've been a fan of the Transformer movies and have enjoyed them, but like many have seen a sharp decline in the overall quality of the films as they progressed. It's become more about the eye-candy experience than the story and/or characters, becoming for the most part, a forgettable popcorn summer-fest movie you quickly forget about after the lights come up. For me the 1st is still the best. I had this on Blu-ray (the 2-disc collector edition). The Blu-ray has always been a demo-worthy disc for showing off your system, but the 4K version is a real step up and I feel worth the price of admission. According to what I've read, this has been up-sourced from a 2K master, but even so, having seen the Blu-ray version multiple times, I'm enjoying it as though seeing for the first time. There's a nice uptick in detail level and sharpness. I'm noticing details (like the alien inscribed text on the metal disc of Optimus Prime's face as he transforms) that weren't clear before. The complexity of the changes on each of the characters and depth in-between materials can really be appreciated in 4K, over what was already an exceptional Blu-ray. Skin tones and faces show great definition, and you can see the difference throughout the film in the overall environmental details. This is a very kinetic, face-moving firm, with camera angles almost changing at a blitzkrieg pace, which on most films tend to loose the details or becomes hard for your eyes to track. Not the case here, as it's all there for you to take in. Fabrics show woven stitching, bits of debris fill the air in the desert attack or as Megatron and Optimus crash through buildings. There's a level of film grain and sun flare effect inherent in the photographic shooting style of this film, which transfers nicely on this format, but is never overpowering. The 4K version is the way to go with this film, offering superior video over the Blu-ray and sound that's all over the room In this case, spend the money to re-invest in this title and be prepared to see more than meets the eye!

      Very good high def movie with great high def sound

      Posted
      setupman

      I watched this movie on DVD first since it originally came out in high def to play on HD players. I for one take into account the movie, video, and audio and watching it in HD is like it was a new movie. Transformers the movie was very good overall but deviates a little from the original transformer cartoons I remember as a kid. For instance bubble bee was a Volkswagen Beetle and Megatron was a hand gun with a very powerful blast. Neither is so for the movie. The blu-ray video is very good to watch as it shows clear crisp images throughout most of the movie. There were some parts that didn’t look like 1080p. The audio which is what I like the most was exceptional during the action scenes. The movie is recorded in the Dolby TrueHD format which I like a lot. Transformers Dolby TrueHD soundtrack creates an environment during action scenes that make you feel like you are there in the fight with the characters in the movie. For instance in Transformers, at the beginning of the movie when the first transformer helicopter attacks the military base, the surround sound is awesome. You almost feel like ducking. Audio in a movie is often overlooked due to the lack of a home theater system large or small that takes advantage of the different surround sound formats that mostly all movies are recorded in. The audio can often make a bad movie seem better or good movies seem worse if not done right. Wanted definitely has it right for the action scenes it has. It definitely makes the movie more enjoyable. I would suggest to anyone who loves listening to movies in surround sound to buy this movie in blu-ray. If you don't have a surround sound system I would suggest you get one and watch this movie. This is a good movie."

      Biggest Dissapointment

      Posted
      Raziul

      This to me was the greatest disappointments of the summer. It is a terrible movie whose only true appeal is the Transformer name more than anything else. My biggest gripe with the movie, is that all the characters are incredibly two dimensional. Even the main character played by Shia, is rather lacking in character development. The story itself is even more thinned out by the fact that additional 2d HUMANS that no one cares about, are being added even towards the end of the film. Another Major gripe, is this was supposed to be a TRANSFORMERS movie. But your only glimpses of them are in the exaggerated beginning, and then 30-40 minutes after that. You spend practically the entirety of the film listening to a whole bunch of worthless no name characters talk and walk around and remind you that there's something strange going on. In total, there are maybe about 30 minutes where the Transformers themselves are actually showcased. A few problems happen with this issue. Many of the action scenes that the Transformers actually appear in, happen too quickly and it is incredible hard to actually see what is happening. Most action sequences look like to balls of metal with arms wrestling. Second, THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A TRANSFORMERS MOVIE. They should have been the focus of the entire film, not side characters that stand in the shadows for the whole of the film. This movie completely and utterly failed to achieve what it was meant to do.

      Well Worth The Money

      I would agree that this movie and just about all of Michael Bay movies are very formulaic eye candy with nothing more than high budgeted special effects and fairly thin plots to carry the audience to 2 hours and beyond. When my girlfriend and I spent our $20 we knew exactly what we were getting. We knew that there was a high probability that Michael Bay was coming with the same formula he used in Armageddon, Bad Boys 1 & 2 and Pearl Harbor…etc, and we were okay with that. All we wanted was a night of descent entertainment and what we got was a movie that was a blast in every sense of the word. The well-crafted CGI was phenomenal and gave new meaning to the word "eye candy." It will definitely raise the bar for other upcoming movies. And although the movie didn’t carry every conceivable detail of the cartoon series, its premise was close enough to hold a moderately avid fan’s attention. This is Michael Bay’s specialty and he’s getting better with every movie he makes. I bought the HD version watched it and had just as much fun as I did at the movies. Not to discredit more Oscar worthy titles, but this type of movie is why I invested a lot of money in a top-notch home theater. If you can get pass all the biased rhetoric towards Mr. Bay and his movies, then I would definitely recommend this one for a night (and future nights) of great entertainment.

      Outstanding

      This is a great movie with a lot going on. There are a few different sub plots that happen, they all kind of mesh into one in the end though so it works. Also there are a few times it strays from the original source, but there are a couple things to remember about transformers. Bumble Bee was a VW bug in the cartoon and a Chevy Camaro in this movie. Well VW did not want to license the bug out for the movie so they had to do something. Also, to say that it really stays from the cartoon, the cartoon was a 30 min add for the transformers toys. This is not a derogatory statement, but the truth. The toy came out before the show and the show only came out because the FCC changed the rules on making shows out of toys. Also, Bay has a certain level of artistic rights to change things being the director and all. If you were a Transformers "fan boy" would you rather have this movie with a couple things changed and a whole lot of action? Or would you rather not have a movie at all? Personally I liked the whole thing though. Very well done transforming scenes and a lot of action to be had. I highly recommend this movie to all.

      Transformed into Boredom

      Posted

      I watched Transformer cartoons because it was my son's favorite. If we still owned all of those original transformers he owned we could probably purchase part of the film. And they'd be more valuable entertainment-wise. One of the major principles of drama is "can you suspend disbelief". That was possible with the cartoon. It was fun. It made some kind of sci-fi-sense. The movie is a just an exercise in CGI. There is utter disbelief all of the time. Consider the laws of physics. Matter can neither be created or destroyed. It can only be transformed. But if these normal sized cars transformed into the gigantic robots of the movie they'd be about as solid as marshmallows. And yet the animators speak about how detailed they were. How many parts they drew. OK. That's great. But a 12 foot long car can't turn into a fifty foot tall robot. And those freaky spider like things make no sense at all. More importantly there is no human interest in the story. Terminator wasn't about the Machines. It was about the people. You can't even remember the people's names after you watch this movie.

      Excellent Addition To Any Action Lover's Library

      This was a surprisingly good film. I was a bit leery initially about this movie considering the subject material was based on a line of children's toys from the '80's. However, I was gladly mistaken in my initial mis-givings about it. I was impressed at how well the special effects came out. The robots all looked very realistic in all their appearances transforming from vehicles to robots and back to vehicles. Also the battles between the robots were very well executed. The audio is also noteworthy in this movie. The 5.1 audio came through very well on this particular DVD with plenty of usage on all speaker channels. This disc is an excellent selection to demo a home theater setup with. I don't feel there's really any need to review the film's story. It's pretty unbelievable in many areas but that's par for the course with action movies of this variety. All in all, this is one to get for your library. You won't be disappointed with it in the slightest.

      Transformers

      The thing that strikes you the most while watching the movie "Transformers" is not how spectacular its special effects are or how ferociously its action sequences come across on screen, but rather how very Funny so much of the movie manages to be. After having sat stone-faced through many of the alleged "comedies" foisted upon us in recent months - "Evan Almighty," "License to Wed," even "Shrek the Third," to name just a few - I'm pleased to announce that I laughed quite a bit throughout the course of "Transformers" - and I do mean good-sized belly-laughs, not mere titters or snickers. Prime credit for that obviously goes to screenwriters, Roberto Orci and Ales Kurtzman, but I would be remiss if I didn't also acknowledge Shia LaBeouf's contributions in this regard. In this his first certified blockbuster, LaBeouf finally achieves the superstardom he`s been steadily heading towards the past several years.
