Transformers would have made ALOT more worldwide if they had just given it a worldwide release.

But it's ALREADY being pirated all over the place.

Agreed

It was a mistake having such a large gap between release dates for such an anticipated movie.

The only thing is that if they make a sequal it can be really bad because the only thing they care about is money. They just need a better director then Bay.
Dont get me wrong, i loved the movie! but i could have been better :)

I saw Transformers in the states and it is more satisfying and a lot better written than the other blockbusters so far this year. I really don't see how there could be a sequel or "franchise" as everything seems to be wrapped up well (note "satisfying" part of this comment)

Trilogy is fine but i hope a different director, why doesnt spielberg does it himself?

I don't agree with you wickamonkey because they TF universe is so big and so many more robots can come and kick ass :D

Can't wait for the release of Transformers over here and after seeing your four star review I'm def going to go see it. Well we can all guarantee a second Transformers anyway with the money it's raking in. As for Die Hard 4 well I expect after it's mostly three star reviews people were not too bothered about seeing it. It's home is the DVD. But what does this say for all Rambo and any more sequels to films made years ago. Have people forgotten about them...Hmmmmm???

Why oh Why do Empire reviewers give all this massive popcorn movies 4 and 5 stars all the time!!!  Michael Bay no doubt has a eye for action, but my god how many crimes against cinema has he committed already in his career? If any other director had made this film I would go and see it, but I just know BAY will make me cringe!   

When I first started reading this magazine I loved the fact it was witty and always had intresting articales about the films it reviewed and seemed fresh and at the cutting edge of showing empire readers the best in forthcoming talent, Colin Farrell springs to mind even before tigerland you featured him...Maybe it 's me but i feel empire has sold out to all the big studio films and just kisses there ass!! .......maybe an ill considered rant or maybe a few morsals of truth..what do you think???

Did you name yourself after one???

I don't think that Empire has sold out, it has to balance depth with the demands of the market. While I would love to see Ken Loach on the cover, I'm guessing that that issue wouldn't shift many units.

Back on message, Transformers looks like it may well rock.
Even my wife wants to see it.

Blimey mate it's Transformers. If you've seen any of G1 you know that everything gets pretty neatly wrapped up at the end of each episode yet there was about 100.

Ok Pearl Harbour sucked (except the action scenes) but I actually thought the Island was quite a good film. You cant always judge someone for their past work. Look at Peter Jackson, goes form films like Brain Dead to Lord of the Rings. Anyway could you do a better job under all that pressure???
