Wow! Monsterous robots...state of the art graphics...Shia LaBeouf! Why wouldn't I want to see "Transformers?" Well, now that I have seen this movie, I can tell you exactly why. The movie began with a "bang," but 144 minutes later, all the sparks and giddy excitement were gone. I was begging for mercy, waiting for the credits to roll. With this dragged out plot, that seemed to last forever, by the end, I was sure the credits would be more entertaining. So don't be fooled by the flashy, ample robots...or their plan to conquer the universe. Below the high tech animation, and funny one-liners, the plot is a huge let down.
