What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Shake, rattle, and roll credits.
Jacques Liebenberg Die prent is 'n totale aanslag op die sintuie en laat 'n mens... uitgeput, maar só gelukkig.
Kenneth Turan Wonder-toys steal show from humans.
James O'Ehley Ultimately, the movie's many action scenes will no doubt have small boys of an impressionable age literally pee in their pants from sheer excitement, while teens will appreciate our hero's 'American Pie'-lite teenage travails involving zits, his first car and accusatory parents.

Shaun de Waal
Peter Feldman ransformers is a noisy, frenetic and, at times, innovative action adventure about an alien race of robots which lands on Earth and takes on the characteristics of American cars and trucks.
Barry Ronge It's flat-out fun, the year's best achievement in special effects.
Megan Kakora With Earth the unfortunate battleground between good and evil alien robots, who needs actors when you've got mind blowing CGI?
Tim Cogshell Michael Bay’s live-action vision taps fans’ inner child
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert After a string of bad-to-mediocre films, director Michael Bay scores with blockbuster battling robots in Transformers.
James Berardinelli Transformers is a jumble of the good, the bad, and the ugly, with the latter two categories outweighing the former.
Frenetic but ultimately dull and likely to give many a parent a headache from all of the noise and inanity.
Tomatometer Believable characters are hard to come by in this action-packed film.
