Man, the Transformers movie kicked ass!

It's not so much that it was a good movie as that it was very, very fun. Explosions! Planes! Tanks! More explosions! And it was the Transformers, so c'mon! Granted the source material, I don't think it could have been notably improved. Optimus Prime's dialog was hokey, but really, it was Optimus Prime. Goes with the territory.

And Hugo Weaving was the voice of Megatron. Which means that Megatron needed more lines...

Deathless, no. But very fun if, like me, you had no expectations and like to watch giant robots hurt each other.

I liked that they apparently decided that expensive CGI be damned--the movie's called Transformers, THEY ARE GOING TO FUCKING TRANSFORM. And they included the old cartoon Transforming noise.

It was so explodey and fun, I want to move into the theater and watch that movie on a loop, surviving on stale Milk Duds and watery foutain drinks.

Also, I believe a lot of that dialogue was ad-libbed by Peter Cullen, and it was deliberately hokey.
