When I first saw the trailer for this, I laughed. So I had pretty low expectations going into this. It wasn't too bad. First off-- it was long (two and a half hours), so don't buy a large soda. The special effects were spectacular. They really were. But they were done by Industrial Light and Magic, so I didn't expect anything less (Hire me!). And I think the biggest problem I had was the acting between the transformers and the people were actually better then that between the actors themselves. Some of the dialog just didn't seem realistic, certainly involving the Defense Secretary and various government agencies... which was disappointing. Because those types of scenes are usually my favorite. (Like the fast-paced high-pressure scenes in ER or West Wing).
