I took the family to see the Transformers movie. Nicole, Shannon and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The special effects were solid, there were no long lulls in the action, the movie had comic spots, and the plot was interesting.
My daughter and wife, were not overly familiar with the Transformers before this movie. Shannon said when she was younger she thought that the transformers were cartoons for boys. In all honesty the cartoon was probably geared more towards males then females. The cartoon was geared more for boys, but both Nicole and Shannon thought the movie was fun and entertaining.
The special effects were very good and seamless. It is movies like this that you walk away amazed at what can be done in movies today. The plot was interesting. You do not need any prior knowledge of the Autobots, Decepticons or Cybertron to enjoy. When it comes to information, the movie is a complete package. If you are familiar with the Transformers, you will be happy to see how the transformers have been brought to the big screen.
If you enjoy action films, or science fiction films, I think you will definitely enjoy the movie Transformers.
