A spin-off from the ’80s promotional cartoon series about alien robots who can transform into earthly vehicles (and weapons, and animals, and electrical goods…), this feature-length battle royale drops you in at the deep end: unless you have perfect recall of the TV show, the opening half-hour is a bewildering barrage of unfamiliar characters and ongoing plot set against an unceasing stream of shoot-outs and explosions. No sooner have the dastardly Decepticons laid waste to the heroic Autobots’ home base than a planet-gobbling colossus – voiced, sadly, by Orson Welles – threatens the whole lot of them. From here the film actually unfolds in a reasonably engaging manner; one dramatically sophisticated sequence contrasting the goodies’ and baddies’ responses to their leaders’ respective demises stands out. The anime-inflected look is generally impressive too, although the power-rock soundtrack is unsalvageable.

Classic movie from the eighties that anybody who grew up in that era with half a brain an an ounce of taste would be able to recite the entire script backwards! Lets put it this way it's left one hell of an impression with fans across the globe and is FAR FAR superior than the new abortions that we were forced to endure an could have been SO much better.... The story is great, the characters are great, the ending is unforgettable and as for the soundtrack, well, it's nothing short of a work of genius! Stan Bush does some great work but Vince Decola should get an award for the music in this film, which he still performs to this day to fans around the world! CLASSIC MOVIE, I feel bad for you if you missed the boat, too bad! TILL ALL ARE ONE !!

This is probably one of the best animated movies ever made, Unfortunately not too many people could relate to it. The initial burst of unexpected violence is actually very well designed and is meant to pack an impact much like the first few minutes of Saving Private Ryan. As far as the soundtrack is concerned people forget it was the 80s!! the height of this kind of metal music. The storyline captures the audience's heart as they see some of their favorite characters perish and others hurled into what looks like eminent defeat. But the end is the best part, probably ranks up there with the likes of the Shawshank Redemption.
