The Hollywood Reporter
Transformers is a wet dream for fanboys, with vehicles that whiz and whir into alien robots, spectacular sci-fi stunt chases, glistening military hardware, overheated computer software and brainy, hot girls who love Popular Mechanics.

Chicago Sun-Times
Everything comes down to an epic battle between the Transformers and the Decepticons, and that's when my attention began to wander, and the movie lost a potential fourth star.
75
Even more ridiculous than it sounds.
75
Yes, it's loud, explosive and silly, but it also perfectly embodies the concept of a summer blockbuster with its simple good-guys-vs.-bad-guys plot, cheeky humor and flawless special effects.
75
It's a heavy-metal opera with humor.
75
A classic Michael Bay mega-movie. Interested in plot and character development? Move along. You're blocking the view.

Miami Herald
The most surprising thing about Michael Bay's much-anticipated, blockbuster-bound Transformers is how funny the movie is.
75
Premiere
Grab some popcorn and make a pit stop, then sit back and enjoy it. You signed up for a movie about giant robots.

Charlotte Observer
The energy never lets up, and two committed, unfussy leading actors are an improvement over other summer flicks.
70
For almost two hours of car chases and car wrecks and extraordinary animated transformation sequences that meld fluidly with live action, the welcome mat is out for Michael Bay's cheerfully dopey saga.
67
Bay, at heart, isn't a fantasist; he's a literal-minded maestro of demolition.
40
Transformers' multiple earthling story lines are tedious and oddly lifeless, doing little besides marking time until those big toys fill the screen.
