Terrific adaptation of the popular cartoon that, like all the great blockbusters, works not as much due to its special effects but due to a smart script, good actors, and great chemistry between the leads particularly between Shia LaBeouf, Kevin Dunn, and Julie White as Sam and his parents. The special effects that bring the Transformers to life are marvelous so long as the robots aren’t moving too much. As soon as they start fighting, Bay employs the old quick-cut/tight-shot trick which makes it difficult for the audience to see what’s going on. That said, there are two sequences in which he shows some restraint and indeed inspiration. The first is the overpass scene where we see Optimus Prime at his most bad-ass and the second is that desert battle sequence which culminates in a spectacularly framed aerial shot of a heavy bomber blasting the crap out of the enemy.
