    The first "official" review of Transformers has been posted on IGN. It should be noted that it was the Australian branch of the site that reviewed the movie, though I honestly can't imagine the American review being all that different. How well did it score, you ask? Well, just read and find out! Be forewarned though: if you want to avoid any spoilers, it'd be best if you just skipped the review as a whole and went straight to the score.

    Actually, all things considered, I'd say that's pretty damn good. I can say with all certainty that IGN probably gave it a better review than most other critics will.

    IGN aren't the only ones posting reviews...things seem to be generally positive in an almost-attempting-not-to-be-too-disparaging manner. The same comments seem to be prevalent regarding the film's slam-bang action, amazing FX and simple story, as well as the human cast's varying levels of quality.

    Here's a couple (you could follow the links from IGN, but I thought I'd make it easier for everyone):

    Since when is 7 out of 10 is mediocre? Have the Internets reassigned the value of ratings now to either 'Excellent' or 'It Blows'? :p

    IGN review gave Fantastic Four 2: Rise of Silver Surfer 7.5/10 too. Now that is strange to me. Fantastic Four sucks big time, I only gave it 2/10 and all my friends who have watched it said it is a CRAP film. I just wonder how some of the internet reviewers gave ratings. The reviewers suck sometimes.
