Hah!
Personally, I think that says it all - but my 12-y-o is going to love it...
LOL! I'll probably see it this weekend. I really liked the first one. The second one, not so much.

Critic Glenn Kenny (who liked it OK) wrote a funny reviews at msn.com.

 

His lead is pricess:

 

"Are critics unfair to director Michael Bay and his "Transformers" movies? For reasons that are frankly obscure to me, this question has been put forward by some pop culture mavens, and taken seriously by some others. As if Bay and company are entitled to something more than the zillions of dollars these film make, and the ubiquity of their characters as pop culture icons, profit-taking merchandise pieces, and convenience-store special-drink tie-ins. As if they are entitled as well to critical respect, which will, after all, arrive eventually, from the post-graduate academic realm that will someday devote reams of text to the Thousand Plateaus of the Anti-Epistemological Perplex of Optimus Prime, or some such."

I mean "priceless."

If "Transformers" appeals to you, you might like these movies, too. (Warning: some off-color language.)
