The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M rating from the classification board the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however this modified version was still seen as being to strong originally and received the original M rating given to the film, however following an appeal from Paramount the film was lowered to PG on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release. See more »
Hopefully they will reboot the franchise with this movie as the first one and forget about previous disasters
First Transformers movie that is actually good.
Almost 10 years ago, I wrote an unfavourable review after the first movie by Michael Bay. I had been a real fanatic of the Transformers in my childhood and I did not feel the movie treated the story nor the characters (nor the fans!) with respect. The sequels were worse every time, and they even blamed poor stories due to the Hollywood writers association going on strike (I'm not kidding, they really blamed it on that).
This movie (Thank God at last !!!!!) undoes the harm done by the previous movies. It brought me back some good memories from my childhood fantasies. For once, the robots actually look like the cartoons. This is a big thing. The robots from the previous movies were horrible, and did not look whatsoever to the original toys.
Producers for the next movies, please remember: The Transformers is a robot's story where human beings play a very secondary role in the same. It is not a story about humans in which robots are involved. Please don't ever cast goofy characters such as Agent Simmons (played by otherwise good actor John Turturro). It really kills the story. PLEASE READ THE COMICS AND WATCH THE ORIGINAL TRANSFORMERS CARTOONS before considering making more movies of these. If you don't get it, let other people produce them. Sure there are lots of them around.
This movie is good. Believe me and actually go and watch it. It will be the profits which will secure or not the guys involved in this project to remain for the next one.
