I don't usually listen to film critics, preferring to read what other people thought of the film before deciding going. In this case I would have to agree with the critics.
Half way into the movie if found myself trying to stay awake, surely the people who spent the millions it takes to make this movie could have added some form of a story instead of just using visual effects to entertain the audience. To sum it up I found the film boring, even the action and visual effects (which were stunning) of the last hour couldn't save this movie for me. I hope that if they do make another Transformers movie, they try something fresh (maybe something like a good story line to go for a change). If they don't or can't I think they should leave it alone. I am sure some people will enjoy the film and good for them.
