Watched this yesterday and really enjoyed it. Good movie IMO and would say the best way to describe the film is Over the Top meets Rocky. A/V were reference caliber as Ralph describes so well! Great HT ride

Saw this on Monday. This is a blind buy I wish I hadn't. Pretty bad IMO.

Kaboom.

Really? Can you elaborate on why you didn't enjoy it--just curious.

Weak, predictable story and bad acting mostly. The robots were cool but that was lost on me. I couldn't get past everything else.

Kaboom.

I'm pretty confident you'll really enjoy it. The robots were far cooler than I thought they would be and the story is quite solid, as well.

I have to agree when I first saw him when he meets Hugh Jackman the first time he looked very similar to Jake.

good call! lol

I thought the kid did a pretty good job...seems like he's pretty sharp.

All I could think about in the first few minutes of that movie was that robot from the Stallone version of Judge Dredd. I don't know if it's because I was traumatized by the Terminator when I saw it as a kid, but something about 8' tall scary robots really triggers my anxiety lol

The fighter robots were cool.

Omg,i saw this last night, I had to change my pants couple of times. My jbl was rocking,but i have to agree the movie was very entertaining from the start to the end and great sound track. Disney always made great movies and i hope they continue the trend. This will go into my blu ray collection. If you haven't seen it already,i recommend it,it's a fun flick to see with your kids and family. Great review ralph

I finally decided to watch this with the family and this movie probably looked better than any film I've watched on my Panny over the last 3 years! Very good picture quality along with robot cg that was much better, in spots, than any Transformers flick.

climactic fight was almost identical to the ROcky 1 fight
. I can't really call it a true family film due to the language but for families with teenieboppers or older it was fine. Just my personal opinion. Weirdest thing about the movie is that my 18 year old daughter liked it more than anyone else (myself included)!
