The action was good. But way way too many plot holes and inconsistencies.
The Director and Writers are just greedy money hungry bastards who aren't Transformer fans at all. They're just capitalizing on the franchise name.
If they were truely a fan... They shouldn't have fucked with the character looks. And how on earth do they fuck up naming Brawl as Devastator? Which one of the writers acknowledged that it was a mistake.
So the sequel will have the Constructicons in them, what are they going to call Devastator then? Voltron?
So they couldn't do Megatron as a gun because they didn't want to do "mass shifting" the whole shrink to small size.... OKAY.... And what did they do in the movie with the Allspark cube... Mass Shifting... It became a tiny box.
Here's a quote I pulled from a wiki article:
On May 30, 2007, Dreamworks greenlit two sequels to Transformers, and Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Peter Cullen signed on to return. Michael Bay has not signed, saying "I'm trying to keep some leverage for the negotiations." Writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are undecided but may not return because "we want to have a reason to do it, not just say, “it’s a business, it’s a franchise, we’re going to go do the second one because that’s what we do and we’re going to get the big money,” and Star Trek by the way is taking up kind of all of our time."
Soundwave is intended to be a new major character in the sequels, with his presence allowing a proper introduction of mass-shifting. Producer Tom DeSanto has "a very cool idea on how to introduce the Dinobots and Constructicons." If he decides to helm a sequel, Bay may put in an aircraft carrier character, an idea which was previously too expensive for the first film.
Sounds like the Director and Writers are hesitant to do the next film? Why? They're waiting on the box office results... = $. If they're really a 'fan' of the show when they were kids (so they claimed) then why don't they do something about making the sequel an awesome sequel... flesh out a story they started (or rather reboot). They pretty much rewrote the mytho...
The movie was awesome because people aren't transformer fans and they saw a cool action sequel of fighting robots, and looked past the plot holes... Like why on earth would you have Sam a human run around with the cube or the army for that matter... Shouldn't the autobots just take the damn cube and fly back to home to Cybertron? Or destroy it as soon as they got possession of it. Instead of driving through the dessert into the next town to fight in the middle of a city with tons of human casualities. WTF?
I can go on. But that video clip I posted above pretty much summoned up everything.
Anyways- I thought the movie was rather lame.

Here's another example of Michael Bay being an idiot....
Michael Bay, who had wanted to make a family film, was asked to direct, but he thought of it as a "stupid toy movie". Realizing he had been wrong as a teenager at Lucasfilm regarding Raiders of the Lost Ark' box office potential, and that Spielberg might also be right about this concept, he visited Hasbro and gained a respect for the mythology. Bay admitted he doesn't often get excited about action, but he was enticed by ideas like an 85 mile-per-hour fight scene.
Stupid Toy Movie....
I think he pretty much made that a reality.
He "gained a respect for the mythology"..... oh yeah.... so he decided to FUCK with it.
They should have just gotten the license for the Go-Bots and fucked with that instead.
