Never a fan of the animated TV series, I came to this live-action "Transformers" as a toy-loving aging Baby Boomer willing to give the show a try. I came away disappointed. It was a predictable plot about a young male misfit who finds himself engulfed in a war between dueling bands of robots - the Autobots (the good guys) and the Decepticons (take a guess). Lots of CGI explosions and non-stop mayhem, but little to engage the newcomer. Fans of the TV show have had a generally positive response to this movie, so take that into consideration. But its unlikely that any newcomer will be swept up in Transformer Fever by this film.
