The Transformer voices in the 2007 film carry a sort of computerized feel about them, as if they were filtered through a processor (particularly Starscream): Transformers (6/10) Movie CLIP - My Name Is Optimus Prime (2007) HD - YouTube Transformers (9/10) Movie CLIP - No Sacrifice, No Victory (2007) HD - YouTube In one sense, it sounds great, makes them sound like robots. In another sense, it makes them feel artificial and prototype. The second and third films had the voices sound more natural and organic, like warriors grunting and snarling (and ironically, Movie Soundwave sounds organic while his classic G1 voice was processed). If there is a chance of re-releasing the first film, I think they need to leave off the processed alteration. The voices can stand well on their own, without the need for such a gimmick.
