Somebody Really, Really Liked Transformers!

I have no doubt in my mind that Transformers is going to at least be one of the top three entertaining films of 2007. Say what you will of Michael Bay, this film has all the makings to be incredible.

That being said, somebody was fortunate enough to catch the world premiere of the film in Sydney -- that's in Australia for the layman -- and claims that Transformers is the cat's pajamas.

Transformers Screening Report


Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay teaming up to create a film? Sounds almost too good to be true. If a duo to the likes of this can fail, what's next? Fortunately, 'Dome22' reported in (to AICN) nothing but Transformers goodness. Sure, he has a couple extremely-minor complaints, but immediately goes back to praising the film.

Which bring me to the following conclusion: those people out there who rued the day Michael Bay picked up directing duties for Transformers are idiots. Out and out fools. A flame on a once-flameless robot does not a bad movie make. Paul WS Anderson would have made this movie flameless and delivered a turgid pile of soggy salmon stool sample. There is NO OTHER director working today who could have provided the over-whelming spectacle that I witnessed last night. Exhilarating, and then some. This movie is exactly what a 2 hour live-action Transformers episode should be. In fact, I’m going to go as far as say that this is very possibly the best TV to big screen adaptation I can recall (having only recalled The Fugitive, Mission Impossible, The Mod Squad and Charlies Angels: Full Throttle). Transformers totally recaptures the euphoria of being 7 years old, sitting on the carpet in front of my old television set, TOTALLY engulfed by the awesomeness of fighting Transforming robots, neglecting my rice bubbles until they neither snap, crackle nor pop. Everything great about 80’s action cartoons from the action hero poses to the cheesy-fun good guy/bad guy back and fourths is here in hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades!


'Dome22' then jumps into specifics on the film -- both positive and negative -- so head on over to AICN to check out the entire Transformers review.

Transformers opens to theaters on July 2nd.
