Robots in Disguise

A Movie Transformed

Transformers is an action film from the Transformers franchise. Michael Bay directed the film and Steven Spielberg was the executive producer. General Motors and the United States Military helped support the movies budget of $150 million. Transformers is said to be the twenty-eighth most successful film released.

The Story Line
Sam Whitwiky (Shia LaBeouf), a not so popular teenager at school, wants to buy a car so we will get noticed by his crush Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox). His father takes him to a run down car shop and purchases an old 1976 Chevrolet Camaro. What Sam doesn't know is that his dump of a car is actually an Autobot named Bumblebee (Mark Ryan). Sam discovers his car to be a giant robot. The other Autobots have already arrived on earth and have taken the shape of cars. The Autobots and Bumblebee explain to Sam that his grandfather discovered an evil Autobot named Megatron and his evil group called the Decepticons. Megatron died trying to find the great All Spark aka the Cube, and now they have returned to try and find the All Spark again. The Autobots must find the All Spark before the Decepticons do. Sam and Mikaela must travel with the Autobots to try and find the All Spark which is hidden deep down in the Hoover Dam. Their adventure with the Autobots is an exciting, nonstop action filled moive.

The Robots and Humans
The many other voices of the robots include Hugo Weaving (Megatron), Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime), Darius McCrary, and Reno Wilson. Jon Voight, Anthony Anderson, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Rachael Taylor, and Bernie Mac also play important human characters.

Transformers was an awesome movie. I liked it so much that I actually went to the theatres twice to see it. It was nonstop in action and excitment. I really enjoyed the movie and everyone that I have talked to liked it as well. Transformers is definitely a movie that everyone should see.

I love this post. You've done an excellent job reviewing this movie! Wow! And I loved transformers as well. We have this movie and have used slow motion to look at several of the scenes (like when the Transformer turns into a jet) -- wow!
