Okay, there are mindless summer movies and there are summer movies which are just plain stupid. Transformers falls into the latter category. Its as if Michael Bay were to do a parody of himself coked and methed up. Once you get past the CGI and ridiculously bloated soundtrack, what' left is a soulless bland film that lacks any characters wort investing in. It's all eye candy and window dressing. Even the gee whiz factor of the transformers themselves bored me by the midway point and by the time it came for the final battle between Optimus and Megatron came, I was eying the exit. The only thing that kept me awake was the over-cranked sub-woofer in the theater. Not the worst "blockbuster" movie I've ever seen, but it's up here with the American Godzilla, Elektra, Wing Commander, and Fantastic Four.
