This theatrical movie based on the television series (which was also based on a popular multiform robot toyline) did not go over very well at the box office. The movie takes place in 2005, twenty years after the television series, and chronicles the efforts of the heroic Autobots to defend their homeworld Cybertron from the evil Decepticons. Both factions are seething with anger, and that hatred has blinded them to a hideous menace headed their way. That hideous menace is the colossal planet known as Unicron, who has been ready to consume anything that stands in its way. The only thing that can stop Unicron is the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, which is possessed by the Autobots and which the Decepticons, through Unicron's orders, plan to take away from them.Written by

Beachcomber can be seen inside Unicron right at the scene were Bumblebee and Jazz are on the claw. Hubcap is also seen right after that. Both show up later on the series with Beachcomber in "Five Food" and Hubcap in "Rebirth Part 3". See more »
In the final camera pan of the victorious Autobots on Cybertron, both Blurr and Perceptor are missing their Autobot symbols, and Jazz's front bumper and top chest panel are both colored white again. Then, in the next shot of Rodimus Prime thrusting his fist into the air and proclaiming, "Till all are one!" the nose on his Autobot symbol disappears. See more »
The second Hungarian dub of the movie, although translated from the censored European version (which deleted the "Oh, shit!" line from the original dialogue), inserted many obscenities of its own. Ironhide calls the Decepticons "sons of bitches" twice, and Grimlock at one point calls Blurr an "asshole". The dub contained a number of other profanities, such as "pants-shitter", "bastard" and "brainless, numb-skull jerk". See more »
Well, I agree that the appeal of this movie is mostly to fans, but I was never a big fan of the series, and I loved it. It's definitely not mainstream, but for anyone who can appreciate robots voiced by some big names (even Orson Welles!) thrashing each other with a very cool, hugely 80s soundtrack, this is where it's at. The main plot, although not exactly inspired, is at least compelling. Any of the scenes with Unicron (Welles) or Galvatron (Leonard Nimoy) easily make the movie worth watching, and there are a few scenes that actually have heart. If you don't like 80s cartoon action, stay away. But if you'll always be a Megaman-playing, Ninja-Turtle-watching kid at heart, check it out.
