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

Orson Welles was said to have hated this movie. When asked about his role, he not only could not remember his character's name but described his role as "a big toy who attacks a bunch of smaller toys". See more »
(at around 59 mins) When Hot Rod and Kup are fighting the Sharkticons, right before Hot Rod punches the Sharkticon in the mouth, the entire top sections of Hot Rod's shoulders are colored gray. Only the panels inside his shoulders should be gray. See more »
The region 1 DVD released by Rhino includes the original US theatrical cut which includes all the profanity edited back into the film. However, there are voice actor credits in place of the scrolling text and voice dubbing at the beginning of the movie, and the voice dub at the end that foreshadows the return of Optimus Prime (which was present in the VHS version) is absent.

I used to be a hardcore Transformers fan when I was 10 years old, I have hundreds of Transformers toys and I even watched the movie so many times that I remember almost all the scenes. But now, since I'm already a teen, I could say that I'm no longer a hardcore Transformers fan. Enough of that little history, I would now comment about the movie. The visual is excellent, better than the TV series due to some neat visual effects. The soundtrack is awesome, it is more on heavy metal, so it's sounds modern and it fits the movie so well because most of the setting are almost industrial-like, not just that, but robots are made of metal y'know! Some of the characters are new, and they're all interesting, the voice quality is excellent. The story itself, however, can be both good and bad. The good part is that, for the first time in the series, the story is dark and very mature, unlike the TV series. The bad part is that most of your favorite transformers will face such untimely fate. This movie does makes me cry for some part which I will not tell. While some makes me happy, as you can see the theme of the series is the same, no matter how powerful evil can be, there is hope to overcome it. I recommend it if you're a Transformers fan or if you're interested in watching it.
