I think I must have watched it 7 years ago when I was 12 but never cared to watch it properly. But now I'm 18 and a bigger TF fan than I was then... Oh my God, it was BRILLIANT! Yes, it may have been cring-worthy in some areas but I loved the action and how brutal it was. Also, watching this after my years of TF media made squeel when I saw where some of the inspiration for some modern things came from such as Jazz in the 2007 movie copying what Kup did to Blitzwing or whent he Dinobots collapsed the door onto the bad guys like they will in the game not to mention how the new Retro Pack trailer was a homeage to it. I really, really liked it. Sure I don't think it's as good as Dark of the Moon which is mnow my favourite action movie ever but I can imagine watching this in the 80s and loving this to death. It holds up well now and I would say it's timeless. Plus you got to love Japanese animation!
