DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - This is a loud, hyper live-action adaptation of the popular '80s toy line and animated series/movie. This aimed squarely at the young male audience and young fans of star Shia LaBeouf. Those looking for substance won't find it here. Some may find the nearly two-and-a-half-hour run time a bit excessive.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Transformers isn't clean, big-budget fun; it's clean, big-budget tedium.

USA Today Full Review
Good Though it's at least 20 minutes too long and uneven dramatically (can you even say drama and Transformers in the same sentence?), the acting is sharp, and it features some of the most spectacular action and effects sequences of any movie of its kind.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In many ways Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) is like every teenage boy. He's interested in girls and cars, and bored with school. But that's where the similarities end. Smart and witty, Sam is destined for bigger things than his peers. When his father agrees to match funds toward his first car, Sam's excitement quickly turns to disappointment with the purchase of a beater 1976 Chevy Camaro® that appears to have a mind of its own. But when the hottest girl in school, Mikaela (Megan Fox), needs a ride home, Sam can't resist, and before long the Camaro® steers the two of them together. The next morning Sam awakens to a distinctive roar and screeching tires. Someone has stolen his car. In a valiant effort to pursue the thief, he chases the Camaro® only to find himself overpowered by a police cruiser that shockingly transforms into a menacing 20-foot robot. Looming over him, the robot attempts to interrogate Sam, but before he can comprehend his terrifying circumstances, Mikaela appears. As the two run from their mysterious attacker, Sam's Camaro® flies in to the rescue. Before the dust can settle, sections of the Camaro® peel back like a banana, grinding, rising before their very eyes and suddenly changing into another giant robot.

Saved by the yellow behemoth, Sam and Mikaela attempt to communicate with their new friend who cannot seem to speak without the aid of songs playing from his radio. Soon other vehicles join them, transforming one by one into enormous mechanical beings who explain that they are Autobots® from the planet Cybertron on a mission to recover the "Allspark,” their life source, before their enemies, the evil Decepticons®, can find it.

Before Sam and Mikaela can implement their plan to help the Autobots®, they are arrested by a strange and officious government lackey (John Turturro) and taken to a clandestine command post.
