    Every review I've read has panned this movie. I figured it would be terrible, but when every newspaper and magazine here in COlumbus Ohio gives it a star and a half out of 4, that's trouble.

    Glad I didn't get excited about this inevitable joke.

    Every bad review has been the same so far... drop words like Skittles, acid-trip, rainbow, and headache, then tie it up with a comment on how Christina Ricci looks like an anime character and you're all set.

    And it doesn't appear to make it any less true.

    The article clip is nothing more than an example of what the majority of the reviews are saying. Nothing personal, it's just not that well-received.

    critics didn't like transformers that much? I think.

    True its acid colors and everything, but goddamn it I like it. and I wanna judge it by all overall critics sometimes are bad. or just looking for meaningful etc.

    I like to think for myself...specially since those 7 minutes sold me more than I thougth they could.-had initial D flashbacks-

    I'm waiting for DVD to watch it. In the first place I never liked the series, I found nothing attractive on them, and now I want to watch a race for the CGI, but the plot remains as simple as it was in the beginning.

    Critics were fair to Transformers.

    I'm not trying to sway anyone, just preidcting that, in my opinion, this looks terrible.

    And I am thinking for myself. I just don't remember the last time so many critics agreed on something so wholly. *turns and leaves at "Initial D" reference*

    Wachowski brothers movies = suck......plus CGI

    Speed Racer series = bad , but points for nostalgia.

    Speed Racer Movie = bad, no nostalgia

    Drifting = GAY

    People getting miffed about saying the movie is bad = funny

    My opinion of course

    I watched one of those clips, and my retinas burst into flames. It's never good when live action tries to look more cartoony than a cartoon.

    Man, that sucked. Not as horribly as I thought, but I had hopes and now I don't. From what I've seen from the onslaught of trailers and the seven-minute clip this movie is devoid of decent acting. The drifting cars are retarded. I was hoping for some real cars racing, not cars skateboarding. The CGI is okay at best.

    All in all, it's a good thing I watched this. I was going to see it in theatres but I probably would've walked out by now.:lol

    The cars slide through the turns to keep everything in motion. You need to see the entire race scenes to understand. This isn't Grand Prix or Le Mans, it's designed to be kinetic.

    Far from the best film I've seen, but it was fun. Nice to see a re-imagining of something that doesn't try to make any of the wacky stuff plausible, it just got on with it.
    Sort of like Days of Thunder but completely nuts, just what you need from a film sometimes, bright shiny and colourful :)
