Variety Posts "Transformers" Review

by | June 21, 2007 | Comments

Variety’s Jay Weissberg has the distinct honor of having the first Tomatometer-approved "Transformers" review.

Describing it as "big, loud, and full of testosterone-fueled car fantasies," and "certain to do gangbusters biz," the film is sure to spawn multiple sequels or spin-offs.

"Transformers" stars the increasingly prevalent Shia LaBeouf as regular guy Sam, and Megan Fox as the hot girl he wants to impress. Sam inadvertently purchases the yellow Camaro that just happens to be Bumblebee, one of the good Autobots who have come to Earth to fight the evil Decepticons. Many pulse-pounding battle sequences ensue.

The film boasts an impressive cast, with the likes of Jon Voight, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, and Bernie Mac in supporting roles, as well as Hugo Weaving providing voice work. According to Variety’s Weissberg, though, the real stars are the CGI team at Industrial Light & Magic, who create the visually stunning transforming robots and meld them into action-packed scenes and interactions with the live actors.

"Transformers" arrives in theaters on July 4th.
