Transformers was awesome! Definitely the best movie of 2007 in my book. If there is one thing that director Michael Bay knows how to do is make things blow up on film. The special effects were intense and amazing. They put together a star cast including Shia LeBeouf, Jon Voight, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and a lot of fresh faces like Megan Fox, Anthony Anderson and Rachael Taylor.Shia has really turned into a powerhouse actor. I really liked Holes and The Greatest Game and he is set to play Indiana Jones' son in next summer's release.
The director made a great choice and brought Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime from the TV series, back to carry on the legacy.I have a feeling that the car companies are really behind this movie. They feature some amazing cars: Camaros, Hummers, Porsche, etc. I left the movie wanting to buy a car and hit the open road. The cars were sweet.I will be truly disappointed if this movie doesn't smash box office records. It is a must see summer movie. It has just the right mix of action, adventure, special effects, and humor with just a little dash of romance thrown in. I'll probably go see it again this week. It was that good!
