Transformers (movie)

The movie sucks but I do not care. I grew up watching "Transformers".

There are tons of characters in the cartoon so they only had a few and concentrated on the boring teenage life of Sam. And then there are other stereotypical characters that are not really in the original.

The special effects were very impressive. I love the fact that they kept some of the sounds and integrated them with new ones. But then the design of the robots changed. Some of them were updated but some of them were totally different like Megatron who is supposed to be a canon. In the movie, he is like Star Scream. Then there are new characters like the CD player.

But the special effects can actually be too much. It was hard to identify which were the good guys and which were the bad guys. The editing and sequences were just way too fast. The sound effects were effective and can give you a lot of sudden jumps and thrills.

For Transformers fan, this is a must-see. For those who do not know what I am talking about, better spend your money on something else.

I cannot wait to watch the Simpsons!
