The Transformers grow up a little in this movie: some of the older characters die, which forces new characters learn the ropes of leadership. Some of the new characters are quite entertaining (Wheelie, Wreck-Gar, etc.). Many old favorites, like Spike and the Dinobots, also play important roles in the story. The animation is colorful and exciting, and the totally Eighties voice talent (including Leonard Nimoy, Weird Al, Casey Kasem, and Orson Welles) is great.

The movie that forced millions of kids watch their favorite Saturday morning cartoon heroes gruesomely die in the first 20 minutes of the film. Including the leader and star of the show, Optimus Prime. Don't get me wrong, I loved this movie as a child. I probably watched it 100 times before I became a teenager. At the time I never thought much of it, other than it made watching reruns of the show that took place before the movie a little sad. As an adult, I look back and think "I wonder why they made the choice to release such a crazy action packed, YA (at best) movie and market it to the children who watch the show?". The 80's were a crazy era.

This was is awesome! The only thing I dint like is that like all the characters were killed off screen. To answer other peoples questions Prime had to die so "Hot Rod" could take the "matrix" and anyway Prime comes back in the 2nd to last episode of the 4th season (oops spoiler). And yes I am a TF nerd.

I like it but almost all the popular characters died. Like Optimus, Starscream, prowl and maybe Ironhide. i don't remember.

I have been a fan of The Transformers since I first saw them back in the '80s, but somehow I didn't see this until its 30th Anniversary Edition came out. Is it flawless? Ah, no. Is it still worth seeing? Oh yes! The restored animation is lovely to compare to some great classic anime. The story is not terrible... And the soundtrack is 100% pure 1980s rock! A fun way to spend 90 minutes, for sure.

There was a lot of random moments and why did Prime have to get killed off!

Coarse Language: They say the "D" word two times. ( The one that sounds the same as the thing that holds water and rhymes with ham, bam, lamb, Sam, ect...).

Awesome stuff happens to awesome characters in an awesome movie with awesome music and an awesome ending. It's totally awesome!

(P.s. I know what you're thinking and no awesome is not my favorite word but it's up there in the top 1,000 not top 10 and not top 100 top 1,000).
