Transformers crash land on present day Earth and inadvertently cause a technological revolution. They wake up 50 years later in a world where robots are used in everyday life. StarScream arrives looking for their AllSpark.
The Autobots embark on a quest to locate mystical artifacts to save their homeworld of Cybertron from being sucked into a black hole. But the Decepticons want to get their hands on those artifacts too.
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

Although Walker Edmiston is credited as voicing Inferno, the character is strangely absent from the movie. As revealed by an early working script, his sole line in the entire film would have been "Good luck, Magnus", which was to be said during Galvatron's assault on Autobot City, as Ultra Magnus lead his Autobot troops to the space shuttles.

The voice actor credits include listings for the characters Inferno, Gears, Prowl, and Dirge, even though none of them had speaking lines in the movie. Also, Jack Angel does not receive a credit for the character of Ramjet, even though Ramjet's voice can clearly be heard during the scene when the injured Decepticons are pushed off of Astrotrain and he commands, "Get! Make room for others!" For that matter, Frank Welker doesn't get a credit for his portrayal of the auto-combatant that Hot Rod is sparring with. The cast list is supposed to be alphabetical, but Peter Cullen's name is listed before that of Scatman Crothers. See more »
Transformers the movie is a brilliant animation with an epic storyline, great cast and great characters. War is shown as it is with death, despair and hope. Some memorable quotes and decent soundtrack. Transformers is indeed a great film, but under rated unfairly by many due to it's toy connections. Those that watch the cartoon series will appreciate it more as characters are well developed in the series, although the film is of much better quality. The fact it is still on sale today, shows clearly, that class will eventually come through in the end, as it's box office record was surprisingly poor. Well worth a watch.
