Wow! They got Peter Cullen to do the voice of Prime! Awesome! Too bad they didn't get Casey Kasem to do the voice of one of the 'bots, forget who it was.

Can't quite tell if you're being sarcastic or not Steyve, but....

He actually played as two bots, a crazy human doctor, and a computer.

Nope, being serious Mike. I know the film is dear to you, so I'll lay off you. I think it's cool that got the original voice for Prime... that and the transforming sound! I'll be curious to hear Hugo Weaving as Megatron, should be cool as well!

Several people have been asking me to see this with them. They're absolutely shocked that I have less than zero interest and have offered to pay for my ticket. :P

Well alot of my mates have seen this and cant stop raving about it, they said the majority of th ehuman scenes are ordinary but the rest is awesome, I'm seeing it tomorrow night so i'll give ya a better report then.
I love that we finally got a movie out here before you guys :)

Ok saw it last night.
I was one of the baggers of this film ,there was no way I was going to like it, or so I thought.
It was actually pretty good, check your brain at the door and just enjoy it for the entertainment it is.
Having Cullen voice Prime was one of the best moves ever and Hugo Weaving for Megatron worked too.
I hated the pics of the new bots, but after seeing them in action they changed my mind.
There were some funny bits in there, there were some ugh moments too but that for the most part was just the ppl, the actual robots were really really really good.
I cant believe i'm talking up this film, the sound was the other thing, please see it in a decent cinema with great sound that was also one of the highpoints gunshots and the transformations were great.
There are also a few extra clips throught the credits and one of them "screams" sequel :)
Go see it, I dont think many will be dissapointed

WowZers.....I just got back from the flick and I'm still a bit dizzy, seriously.  I just couldn't quite keep up with all of the complex transformations.  I think they spent way too much time on that part, but it was beautiful - from what I could make out. 

Overall not a great movie, but it was a good flick which I can easily see a sequel emerging from.  They even made reference to one of Bay's other films but I won't spoil the fun for you.  Ironhide was by far my favorite toy from this line and he stole the show for me in the movie as well even though most of the bots didn't have as much screen time as I would have liked.

Megan Fox was beyond HOT and they made quite a few "references" without revealing anything...very under the wire for a PG-13 rating..but me liked!

This flick almost came off as a comedy during the first hour or so +, which I didn't mind.  Cullen's voice has definatley changed since the good ol 80's so it didn't quite sound the same, but still I wouldn't have it any other way even though he's got lips in this movie until he goes into battle with his classic plate.  Weaving was perfect for Megs.  I guess Welking was a bit too raspy sounding for his age, but at least he scored the voice for the game.

Go see this flick if you've got nothing better to do this week.  It's a fun ride!!

This movie was the most fun I've had at the movies in a long time. I agree- it's a fun ride.  :)

I was pleasantly surprised when the wifey (9 months pregnant) said to me yesterday "we should go see a movie - maybe Transformers - that looks pretty good".  So, we caught it yesterday afternoon.  The theater was full, and I have to agree with others here - we really had a good time seeing it.  We both enjoyed it, and it seemed like the whole crowd really had a good time.  Hearing Prime's voice again, and the old cartoon Transforming sound a few times really brought back memories.  Its really a good time, I thought.

Seems like this thread keeps getting buried for some reason, but I'll try and keep it afloat for as long as possible....

I saw it on the third and really enjoyed it.  I think they did a good job keeping fairly true to the characters (with some obvious poetic license but it wasn't too bad IMO).
