Everybody under the age of 40 has known about Transformers as a cartoon or as the action figures since they were children. They were made for young kids, but finally Hollywood has made a version teenagers and adults can enjoy.

The story is not completely original, but it worked well. It is an action film and does not need to be criticized much on its story. It is simple and easy to understand. It paced itself rather well and did not go overboard with filling up the time while not making it a short film.

The former Disney star, Shia LaBeouf, has started to become a big time actor. He has been in quite a lot of flicks, but he is starting to hit the bigger films in the industry. Megan Fox has also had her big break from Transformers. These two stars did well, but I expected a little bit more chemistry. You get a feel for some of their relationship in the beginning, but after that, there is too much about them as two individuals later. I would have liked to see them interact more as they did in the sequel.

Computer graphics have been being used in many movies recently. Transformers used a lot of it, but it never disappoints. The CGI is detailed and looks very vibrant, but it was not overdone. I did not expect anything less than what I saw. Everything that was added through the computer was nothing short of stunning.

Overall, Transformers is one of the best adaptations of a children's cartoon. It came out to go out for all ages, both genders and does just that. This is one of the better movies that came out in that entire year. If you have not seen this movie yet, I suggest you run to Blockbuster or Netflix immediately and rent it.

Next movie: Juno
