    It's one of the only movies I can recall where the critics almost unanimously have praised it and fans almost unanimously panned it. Check out Rotten Tomatoes' page on it.

    I've heard good reviews on it... better than most critics gave on Transformers 2 which was a really good movie.

    Something tells me many of you would declare a movie good even if it were nothing but a monkey jumping on a trampoline for two hours.

    in regards to the movie... i havent determined who its geared for. is it an adult-themed or more meant to appeal to kids?

    More for the teen crowd.

    I thought it held the action well, but just like in the trailers the CGI elements stick out rather than blend in.

    I think they tried too hard to add in familiar lines from the cartoons, as well as going overboard on the level of technology.

    Whoever wrote the dialogue should be shot, not killed, just maimed.

    LOVED IT!! Give it many thumbs up! The CGI and everything worked great for me..you couldn't have done it any different with the amount of weapons and stuff they had just like from the cartoons. Awesome movie!! Action packed from the start to the end!! Can't wait for the next one!

    PG13 seems like an accurate rating.

    yes... I didn't recall but a few bad words and even then it was during the heat of battles so you won't pay attention too much as a kid. The death and destruction is what gave it mostly that PG13 rating.

    Dude.. you had death and destruction in the damn cartoons.
