I am a fan of the original 1984 animated series. If someone would have asked me ten years ago that a movie like this would be possible, I would probably say no.
I must admit that my expectations were fairly low for the Movie. I have seen bits an pieces of the Animated Series that has been released since the original, and they lack the heart of the first series.
Luckily, this Movie is mostly based on the original characters from 1984. This story infused the human element with the robotic action quite well. There is plenty of humor and action keeping the movie loose yet enjoyable.
There are plenty of things for the Transformers fans to love. Optimus Prime is voiced by Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus. The familiar transforming sound effects are there, as well as some all too familiar characters: Megatron, Starscream, Bumblebee, Jazz, Ratchet, and Ironhide.
The story is done quite well, and the special effects are amazing. This is kind of movie that you want to go the theater to see.
If you have ever been a fan of the original Transformers series, or enjoy big Hollywood action/Science Fiction type movies, you need to go check out The Transformers.
