Hasbro's ever-popular toy franchise takes centre stage in
director Michael Bay's super-sized sci-fi action adventure. When teenager Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) buys a second-hand car, he soon finds out that it has a life of its own. As well as helping him get close to the girl of his dreams (Megan Fox), it draws him into the long-running war between the alien Autobots and their evil nemeses the Decepticons, which is now taking place on Earth. The film may be a robotic replay of (executive producer) Steven Spielberg's
with elements from other popular fantasies grafted on, but the humorous high-octane thrills are never less than astonishing. Most impressive is the seamless integration of CGI animation into live action - and the sheer scope of its ambition. The conversion from cars and helicopters into enormously detailed iron giants in seconds is breathtaking. Despite a finale overloaded with spectacle and massive explosions,
is that rare thing - a truly innovative blockbuster.
Teenager Sam Witwicky is treated to his first car by his dad, but it turns out to be an alien scout with a life of its own. Before long, the vehicle embroils Sam in a long-running intergalactic war between two factions of giant shape-changing robots, which have come to Earth to find a mystical cube that grants infinite power to its possessor. Michael Bay's sci-fi action adventure, inspired by the toy franchise, with Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Jon Voight and John Turturro.
