High-school student Sam Witwicky buys his first car, who is actually the Autobot Bumblebee. Bumblebee defends Sam and his girlfriend Mikaela Banes from the Decepticon Barricade, before the other Autobots arrive on Earth. They are searching for the Allspark, and the war on Earth heats up as the Decepticons attack a United States military base in Qatar. Sam and Mikaela are taken by the top-secret agency Sector 7 to help stop the Decepticons, but when they learn the agency also intends to destroy the Autobots, they formulate their own plan to save the world.Written by
(at around 1h 18 mins) At one point, Agent Simmons refers to the Witwicky's dog Mojo as "your little Taco Bell dog". This is a reference to the Taco Bell "¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!" advertising campaign in the U.S. that used a talking chihuahua from 1997 to 2003. See more »
(at around 14 mins) At Bobby Bolivia's car yard, when Sam first sits in Bumblebee, there are fingerprints in the dust on the window of the Volkswagen beetle next to them, each time the shot changes, they appear and disappear. See more »
Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time, we lived in harmony. But like all great power, some wanted it for good, others for evil. And so began the war. A war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed by death, and the Cube was lost to the far reaches of space. We scattered across the galaxy, hoping to find it and rebuild our home. ...

The full screen version shown on TV adds two additional cuts to the scene where Scorponok knocks over a water tower in the desert. After the tower is knocked down, Donnelly ('Zack Ward') asks what happened, it cuts to Fig (Amaury Nolasco) who responds in Spanish, then cuts back again to Donnelly. This was most likely done because both actors are visible in the shot in wide screen, but in full screen Fig is not visible. See more »

Transformers wastes no time getting right to the incredible robot action we're all hungering for, and rushes directly from the credits to eye-popping, rampant robot destruction. What really holds the film together though is that even when it's knee deep in save the world, all out, brawling in the streets, giant freaking robot war, at the core of everything is the simple story of a boy and his first car. For a man, there are few things more powerful than the relationship he has with his first automobile, and it's no different for Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf).
Transformers is a truly great summer movie. As an action movie it's a huge success; with awe-inspiring effects, tremendous set pieces and jaw-dropping things which you have absolutely never seen before in any other movie. Transformers brings out your inner child from when you first watched the old fashioned animated series on t.v. screen, but only this time it's on the main screen in a movie theatre. This movie is truly fantastic and different from any other movies that I've seen.
