Critics Vs. Transformers

Kevin Pereira talks to CHUD.com's Devin Faraci and Starscream of the Decepticons about all the bad reviews despite high box office numbers for Transformers.  Did someone just get called a robo-racist?

    Yes, the critics are right, the robots are too racist; stereotyping any group is wrong. How dare the robots pretend to be cars! I mean transporting people around like vehicles, what an insult! Talking cars; I hate how they made fun of KIT; Michael Knight should sue.
    Come on, how could anyone not like Transformer2! The movie tried to bring different personalities to the characters. Would you call a white guy acting black racist or a black guy acting white wrong? That is their personality.
    What upset me more is Devin using the word retarded to describe a bad idea. So Devin, do you have something against mentally impaired people?
    Besides, how often are the critics right about movies? I often fine myself enjoying critics say is bad and movies that get thumbs up are not worth seeing most of the time. When I go to the movie, I want to be entertained, and Transformers (both movies) were great to me.

    WTF!! so my awesome comment didn't register, I doubt this will be as good..whatever

    I spent a whole minute to register so that I can say if there was one redeemable quality of the Tranformers films that I would be the scores, both by Steve Jablonsky. He went above and beyond the call of duty with the first film's score and he continued the trend with this movie. On a related note, it is very unfortunate that the score for the first film had an extremely limited print so limited that there is an online petition for more to be made and the disks themselves go for 30+ dollars on Ebay.

    If all you are looking for in a movie is 'Kablooom, pow! BAM! KAPOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!' and a few seconds of Megan Fox bending over well then this mofo has everything you want imo. I'm cool with terristupid action films but this went above and beyond. A film masterpiece this was not but if you just wanted mindless action and some dizzying CGI robot special effects then you certainly got your money's worth and more. I just wish that they could have given the movie The Dark Knight treatment and put a little more heart into it instead of banging the CGI drum. BTW, different strokes for different folks.

    Yeah, the movie was terrible... I hated it... One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I can't believe it made so much money. Michael Bay does need to stop making movies.

    Wow, I never know this awful movie struck a chord with so many people.

    Yes, what he said about the movie is right... there wasn't much story... characters weren't that engaging, but it was still fun and exciting and that's all I expected from this film.

    This is the first movie I actually feel asleep in. Just like what Matt Stone and Trey Parker keep saying, 'Why the hell does Michael Bay keep on making movies?' And I can see why the movie did well in the box office. Like the awful Batman movies in the past, there was no way for audience to really know how dumb a film really was until they saw it. Unfortunately for the film industry, you don't get to sample films. You just spend your hard earned cash to go see it then you realize how awful it is. So high box office gross doesn't account for anything but the fact that people were tricked into thinking this is a good movie! This movie is the epitome of how dumb a film can be with too much eye candy and no real story at all. Learn something from Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay!

    It was cool to see Optimus and Bumblebee kick some Decepticon butt. Anyone who didn't like this movie simply just has no taste. It's funny how a movie that "sucked" has made more money than the "good" movies.Rerat you obviously aren't a die hard Transformers fan or you would have liked the movie.

    I never realized Starscream and Cobra Commander sounded similar.

    i didn't think it was too bad. the camera sucked and some acting sucked, and the dialogue, some other things, but i actually understood the story

    THE MOVIE WAS HORRIBLE! Every joke revolved around a middle schooler's wet dream it was tasteless and reeked of cheap action plot twists.

    That MOVIE sucked, its still a movie and will be reviewed as a movie, not as a coming to life cartoon

    At a certain point, when your whole argument boils down to "People are stupid, and that's why they don't agree with me" maybe it's time to reevaluate your stance.

    come on people, when you were kids didn't you ever want to see those transformer cartoons come to life? well this movie does exactly that so don't let some stupid critic tell you that this movie is horrible, I don't even care about the actors I went to see this movie cause I like the robots and you can say whatever you want but to me this movie was great. I have spoken!
