| Heartwarming prequel, but the writing was too amateurish and childish
Heartwarming story, but seems tailored to be more enjoyable to the 8-12 year old's as an upgrade from the 80's animated series. It's not your expected typical adult action filled Transformers installment. You can tell this was written by an inexperienced amateur writer, Christina Hodson. The directing was fairly decent, considering this was Animator Travis Knight's first live action film he's directed. Not sure why the producers (especially Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg) decided to cheap out on these key elements, and then have to pay for pretty much every fake 10/10 review this film has on here. The film's soundtrack was a good throwback to some good 80's songs. Hailee Steinfeld was perfect as always, but pairing her up with Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and his banana seat bike, made them both look like they were 12 years old. Although still enjoyable, I expected more. Would I recommend it? Yes for kids, not really for adults. Would I see it again? Nope, but I'm sure my 8 year old nephew will. It's a 7/10 from me.

Trivia

When faced with Sector 7, Shatter presents herself and Dropkick as "Decepticon Peacekeepers" to the humans in order to gain their trust and sattelite access. This may or may not be a reference to the Decepticon Justice Division from the IDW comic series.


Quotes

Ratchet: They've broken through the front lines!
Arcee: I've lost contact with the Capitol!
Wheeljack: There's too many of them!
Brawn: Stand fast!


Goofs

When Bumblebee plugs into the wall socket, he plugs into the ground line. This should have had no effect.


Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There is a mid-credits scene: Bumblebee reunites with Optimus Prime in a forest as more Autobots arrive and Charlie finishes fixing the Corvette.


Alternate Versions

The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M rating from the classification board the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however this modified version was still seen as being too strong originally and received the original M rating given to the film, however following an appeal from Paramount the film was lowered to PG on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release.
