Goofs

While the opening scenes of the listening post are captioned as occurring in 1961, the urgent teletype message that is sent reporting the lunar impact that they have detected that day is datestamped July 10, 1962. ("7-10-62") In addition, an entire third line of text is seen being printed in closeup ("CONTACT AT 2250 GMT") prior to the END line, but is missing from the paper when it's torn off the printer in the very next shot. While the END line is still visible, the entire CONTACT line above it has disappeared. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Optimus Prime: We were once a peaceful race of intelligent mechanical beings. But then came the war between the Autobots, who fought for freedom and the Decepticons, who dreamt of tyranny. Overmatched and outnumbered, our defeat was all but certain. But in the wars final days, one Autobot ship escaped the battle. It was carrying a secret cargo, which would have changed our planet's fate. A desperate mission, our final hope...

Product Placements and Ducklips
11 August 2011 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

OK, let's be fair to this movie. The special effects were great -- assuming you can suspend your belief in physics long enough to enjoy them. The rest of this movie was awful.

The product placements for Lenovo, Cisco, Waste Management and Chevy Impala were overwhelming. There was a product placed in almost every scene, and the sheer SIZE of the logo overshadowed most scenes. It was brutal, even for Michael Bay.

And the leading woman (I refuse to look her name up for this review) - the giant implants she had in her lips gave her that permanent "duck- lip" look. Gross.

It's sad to see so much of Hollywood's money go to tripe like this. There must be better things to fund.

2/10, and all of the "2" is special effects.
