well if this fn site would let me watch it ,i'd give a different comment

Great movie Everything you would want in a epic series like Transformers
J brought over his newly purchased Transformers: The Movie DVD last night for our weekly dinner and a movie night. I'd never seen it before. It came out in '86, so I was 13...a bit old for that sort of thing.

It was laughably bad, but fun nonetheless. I don't think I've ever seen a movie that had more annoying characters packed into 90 minutes. But they did have some pretty top-notch voice actors providing talent. The soundtrack is completely ridiculous...BAD, BAD 80's rock. The storyline takes very abrupt turns into nonsense, including an insane dance routine. Who knew Australian robots that look like Ghengis Khan could have such great rhythm!
I try not to use the word "love" loosely these days but I must say: I love the Transformers! (generation 1).
Sadly, this does not necessarily include Beast wars and armada and so on. These are the autobots & decepticons circa 1984. From Optimus to Rodimus to Optimus again (the fans know).

This movie is a rock'm sock'm cartoon that will please fans in VERY satisfying ways. Whether you're watching all your old favourites be slaughteredso that a new line of toys...I mean characters can come in or listening closely for the foul language that snuck into the dialogue, you'll be moved in some way.

What kid didn't cry when Optimus went black and gray?
What film buff wasn't impressed by the STELLAR cast of voices?
What teen isn't buying the current comix?

Now, if you aren't a fan of the series already, hope is not lost. This film offers a combo of OUTSTANDING animation and action packed fun for those who aren't totally following.

To summarize, it's designed for younger audiences but is fine for those who enjoy animation and is PERFECT for any Transformer fan. Young or old.

Fun fact: This was the final film for both Orson Welles and Scatman Crothers. Two legends who passed away in 1986.
As a kid I thought this was an amazing movie. Now I believe it to be a work of artistic merit, with flaws.

One of my main beefs is with the animation, it isn't very consistent. The last half of the movie one can tell that they switch artistic styles. It doesn't really help with the flow of the movie.

The voice actting was great as there were lots of well known names like Leonard Nemoy, Robert Stack, and Orson Wells. Although many kids both then and probably now would not know who these people were, they show that they have talent wether they are visible on screen or not.

Let me say that I still get upset when Optimus Prime dies, cringe when Megatron is transformed into Galvatron, and cheer when Hot Rod becomes Rodimus Prime. You don't have to be a fan of the Transformers to enjoy this film, although it does help.
they're all dead...even optimus...this is sad, many of my favourite transformers were annihilated except optimus...cause he's revived...
I love the Transformers. I wish Skyfire was in the movie though.

The most powerful force in the universe, known as the Unicorn, observes as the Autobots and Decepticons do battle. The Unicorn desires the Matrix of Leadership, currently encompassed by Optimus Prime. The Unicorn sees an opportunity to gain the Matrix of Leadership when Prime falls to Megatron. The Autobots must regroup and rally to their new leader; however, they will now face both the Decepticons and the Unicorn.

"Who boy hit my nose?"

Nelson Shin, director of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, Dennis the Menace in Mayday for Mother, and Toad Patrol, delivers Transformers: The Movie. This storyline was perfectly selected to create a Transformers full length picture (unlike G.I. Joe's movie); however, the soundtrack and a few scenes completely destroyed the writer's product. Shin was provided with an interesting array of voices that included Orson Wells, Judd Nelson, and Leonard Nimoy.

"I would have waited an eternity for this."

The opening scene with the Unicorn sucking in the robot planet, Laser Beak, the "almost too easy" shoot out, the fishing scene, blur, the Insectacons, the cassette tapes battling one another, the dinobots, Optimus Prime versus Megatron, the passing of the Matrix of leadership scene, Cybertron's return to take back crown, the three-quarters analogy, the planet of junk reference, the squid removing the legs, the Imperial Magistrate's verdicts, and the Sharktacons were amongst the better portions of the film.

"Spare me this mockery of justice."

The soundtrack for this film was atrocious. The writer utilized one of these horrendous songs, performed by Weird Al, to have a sing and dance scene within the picture. The Transformers were one of my favorite cartoons as a kid; however, that would not have been the case if the series regularly contained songs like "Dare to be Stupid." Despite this film's shortcoming, I still thoroughly enjoy the series. I do not recommend making this your first Tranformers observance.

"Proceed on your way to oblivion."
