"Transformers" looks to be the big summer movie so far grossing $153 million. Gotta love a 7 day weekend huh? :D Although with "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" opening on the 11th it might slow down the giant robots.
It is amazing how much of a geek I can be. At the first sight when Bumblebee and Optimus Prime transform, I'm hooting and cheering with the rest of the theater. I've found my people. I won't say it's a good movie. It was completely entertaining. I'm a big Michael Bay fan, but I think this was his weakest movie that I've seen. Now I know going in I'm not going to get a though provoking story out of him, but this was full of huge holes and gaps. I'm kind of curious if this had anything to do with Steven Spielberg being executive producer instead of Jerry Bruckheimer. I'm just wondering if Steven had some different imput than Michael normally gets.
Aside from the story holes, this was a great ride. Typically amazing Michael Bay action and effects. It's still hard for me to believe that the Transformers aren't real. The effects are that good that it looks like they actually built full size robots that could walk around in the city. I do wish they used the original G1 designs, but after you see them transform, I didn't really care any more. :D
