(at around 28 mins) The Airforce One displayed in the film is a 707/VC-137, from the markings most likely VC-137C SAM 26000. Considering the time setting the 747/VC-25 based version would be a better match. Also the marking do not match a real Airforce One version precisely. 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.

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 »
Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay team up for the exciting and action packed blockbuster Transformers. Earth becomes caught up in a war between two groups of alien robots that have come in search of a device that gave life to their planet. That cast includes Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro, and Jon Voight, who all bring a certain charisma to the film. But the real stars of the film are the special effects, which are amazing. And Michael Bay does an excellent job at delivering high energy action sequences that are visually stunning. The writing is exceptionally poor and the film goes on for far too long, but the action and the visual effects keep the audience engaged. Transformers is messy and cheesy, and sophomoric...but it's also a lot of fun and immensely entertaining.
