Other comments I agreed with:
With Transformers, director Michael Bay has once again claimed the year’s top honors for loud, stupid filmmaking.
A dizzying summer adventure, Transformers is a film to worship for its set pieces and chastise for its inscrutable storytelling.
Divorced from reality, even movie reality, Transformers becomes an action film in traction. Its relentless product placement makes it seem like a 2hr. 22min. General Motors commercial. And the film has just enough collisions to be a crashing bore. - Richard Corliss, TIME
A movie of epically assaultive noise and nonsense.
