Watch this if you know what you are in for
For those of you who are not fans of Michael Bay: for starters, do not watch this movie. It's really as simple as that. But, I've read some of the negative comments on this film, and it baffles me to read that all this film consists of is hot girls, hot action, and not the greatest acting. Come on, guys. This is a Michael Bay film, and let me emphasize the words MICHAEL BAY. When I think about him, I think about entertainment, and entertainment only, because that is what his films are about. With films like this, I don't go in expecting some great story, with amazing dialogue. This movie is not academy award worthy, nor should it be. This is an action film, that's what it's meant to be, and when it comes to action films, Bay knows how to deliver. Again, the storyline could be better, and Megan Fox could use some acting lessons, but like I said, when you watch these movies, you should watch them for entertainment. So, if you know what this film delivers, and you don't like Michael Bay, then by all means, skip this movie. But, if you do end up watching this movie, and say that it's nothing but a bunch of clanging metal and hot girls, well then, welcome to the world of Michael Bay. I saw it in theatres back in 2007, I went with an open mind, and I enjoyed it. 9/10 for me.

Trivia

Griffith Observatory is a private area and its authorities were initially reluctant about allowing shooting to go on with the film. However, the filmmakers were able to get permission, through its officials Leonard Nimoy and Susan Bay Nimoy (Nimoy's wife, to whom Michael Bay is related), to shoot the Autobots' arrival to Earth and their council. Nimoy had voiced Megatron's successor Galvatron in The Transformers: The Movie (1986) and went on to voice Optimus Prime's predecessor Sentinel Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011).


Quotes

Optimus Prime: Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time, we lived in harmony. But like all great power, some wanted it ...


Goofs

(at around 1h 14 mins) While Sam is looking for the glasses at his house and after the electrical transformer has been destroyed, the electricity to Sam's house is mostly out during interior shots (mostly, because it appears his desk lamp is on with low wattage). When perspective switches to show the exterior of the house, the outdoor lights are on and the interior lights are on which is clearly visible through the windows.


Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There are three scenes in the closing credits:

  • the first two scenes are of Ron and Judy Witwicky, who were told about the Transformers, trying to bluff their way through an interview about the recent alien events.
  • The third and final scene is of Starscream flying into space.


Alternate Versions

An extended version of the film was released on September 21, 2007 to IMAX theaters. Among the additions scenes:

  • Sam's interrogation by the police officers runs longer, ending the detectives showing Sam the famous "This is Your Brain on Drugs" PSA
  • Upon arriving at the Hoover Dam, Agent Simmons gives a much longer speech about Sector 7 and what they do.
  • When Capt. Lennox acquires the old walkie-talkies from the pawn shop, he's seen arguing with the pawn shop clerk about the price.
