I have been a fan of Transformers ever since I was a little boy, and to this day, it's one of my favorite franchises, ever...but, that doesn't mean the franchise is perfect. It has its fair share of problems that may split many people. However, if there's anything that both fans and non-fans can agree with, is that Michael Bay's Transformers movies are awful.

I wanted to write down my thoughts on these movies ever since I saw the trailer for Transformers 5: The Last Knight, I just didn't know what to write.

I think we should start with some history, regarding these movies.
It all started...

*The Facility*

Director Kakuzawa: Are our guests to arrive soon?

Kurama: No sir, though they are about 20 miles away from here.

Director Kakuzawa: Well...that is classified.

In the 2007 live action Transformers film, Megatron appears as a Cybertronian jet. He serves as the primary antagonist of the first film and the secondary antagonist in the film sequels (after The Fallen (ROTF) and Shockwave (DOTM)). The apparent explanation for the departure from his gun form is that director Michael Bay does not want to include any sort of size changing in the transformations, which the writers described as "cheating".[4] (This significant change in size is known in Transformers fan communities as "mass shifting" & "mass displacement".) In one of the special features...

Transformers 4

Plot: It's been 4 years after Transformers 3, and the Autobots are now involved in human activities (helping old people across the street, racing in Daytona, etc). The humans have reacted in a relatively good way. However, the peace is interrupted when a ancient Decepticon (Cyclonus) shows up, causing ancient Autobots (The Dinobots) return to battle Cyclonus.



Optimus Prime: I would like Optimus Prime to still be leader of the Autobots, of course. Optimus Prime should probably keep the same head, but have a different body.

Bumblebee: Bumblebee should still be...

In the live action films Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots. Prime now transforms into a conventional Peterbilt 379 cab, rather than the cab over design of his original Generation 1 body. Also straying from the G1 design, Prime's vehicle mode is now decorated with red flames painted onto a blue body (à la Rodimus Prime, his Generation 1 successor), often incorrectly rumored to be inspired by NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon's current paint scheme at the time. The reason for the change was due to Director Michael Bay's decree that no "mass...

In the 2007 live-action movie, Barricade is a Decepticon that transforms into a Saleen S281E police car, making him similar in appearance to the Generation 1 Autobot Prowl, who was actually in the first draft of the movie treatment before the writers thought that a Decepticon police car would be a better idea. He appears to be the rival of Bumblebee, standing at nearly the same height. He is a hunter/scout of the Decepticons, choosing his vehicle mode to easily hide among the humans as a symbol of authority. His persona appears to be that of the cliché "bad cop", as he fiercely interrogates...

In the 2007 Transformers live action film, Ironhide appears as a modified GMC Topkick C4500 pickup truck, replacing Arcee in the cast list. Peter Cullen, who provided the voices for both Optimus Prime and Ironhide in the original animated series, does not voice Ironhide in the film. In the film, Ironhide is described as being Prime's oldest friend and the weapons specialist of the team. He is a tough soldier who has sustained many injuries. His right eye has a large scar surrounding it. Before arriving on Earth, he sustained a broken ankle. According to the tech specifications of his toy, he...

Chapter 2

[Megatron's Point of View]

“Megatron, an Autobot shuttle has appeared on our radar, but it has crashed and all life signatures have ceased,” Starscream told me.

“Good,” I replied, “Did you retrieve anything that might be of value to our side?”

“No, you entrusted Sledge’s scouts with that job.”

“Of course. Sledge, what did they find?”

“Nothing yet, Lord Megaton,” Sledge answered, “but I’ll check in with them.”

WHAT!” I then pinned Starscream against a wall. “Why you are back here when the scouts are still scavenging the wreckage?”

“You told me...

Thousands of years ago, there was a race of ancient Transformers who scoured the universe looking for energon sources. Known as the Dynasty of the Primes, they used machines called Sun Harvesters to drain stars of their energy in order to convert it to energon and power Cybertron's AllSpark. The Primes agreed that life-bearing worlds would be spared, but in 17,000 BC, one Prime, thereafter dubbed "The Fallen", constructed a Sun Harvester on Earth. The remaining Primes sacrificed their bodies in order to hide the Matrix of Leadership — the key that activates the Sun Harvester — from The...

Frenzy appears in the 2007 live-action Transformers movie He takes on the stealth spy role that was originally Soundwave's. The movie's creators have stated that the character design had evolved too far from being Soundwave. Also, during production he was preliminarily named Boombot[15] and Soundbyte.[16]

In the film, Frenzy is small, and very thin, standing at 1.2 m (around 4 feet) tall.[17] It is implied that he is also lightweight, given the ease with which a stewardess on Air Force One is able to pick him up while in his alternate mode. His alternate mode is shown as a silver GPX boombox,...

Chapter 1

[Lancewing's Point of View]

Life as the lone wolf... a lonely life especially in space. I am an Autobot Brainmaster, one of the most advanced Cybertronians modified by the Nebulons, a pleasant race to at least talk with. Four others were modified with me; Star Saber, Blacker, Braver, and Laster. It was fun, but my spark later grew apart from them. Soon, I decided to be relieved from Star Saber's team and went solo. I wouldn't say that I was completely alone; I had a pet wolf named Anthri. I have never seen him transform into anything, but not all Transformers need an alternate...

Treadway's vehicle mode
Treadway's vehicle mode
Treadway has no fears. He doesnt have courage either. Hes a savage warrior who loves to kill. He listens to no one, and no one owns him. He goes by his own rules. He may be a Decepticon, but he will never be fully loyal to Megatron. In battle, he is almost unstoppable, being able to heal any wounds he recieves. He has many weapons, so many you cant even count. But his main ones are swords. He has a long blade on one arm, and a short, curved block-blade on the other. Treadway also has spike like things down his arms, which grants him the ability to elbow-punch his opponents- and it'll hurt....

Jolt is a young Autobot described as a troublemaker and a bit of a snob but loves to battle Decepticons. He seems to have fondness of Earth's nature and a habit of saving energy explaining why he chose an eco-friendly car as a disguise. He is armed with two electro-whips. Jolt lures his enemies in close to deliver a crippling blow with his electro-whips

He is charging his electro-whips menacingly when the Autobots were confronted by Galloway and some soldiers after returning with Optimus Prime's corpse. When The Fallen forces the humans to find Sam Witwicky and turn against the Autobots, Jolt...

+ Angry Guard Dog: Underbite resembles some manner of hyper-stylized mecha-bulldog.

+ The Big Bad Wolf: Steeljaw, who has a lupine-like appearance.

+ Frogs and Toads: Springload, a Decepticon with frog-like features.

+ Giant Enemy Crab: Bisk, a Decepticon with a distinctly crustacean look, including eye stalks and snapping claws. Clampdown, on the other hand, is more of a literal example, lacking Bisk's humanoid shape and looking like a straight-up robot crab.

Hybrid's vehicle mode
Hybrid's vehicle mode
Hybrid is your average Decepticon. She's stealthy, cruel, powerful and smart. She likes to play with her prey before she brings it down. Her body is super slender and flexible, allowing her to move, bend and flip anyway she wants. She's mostly loyal to Megatron, but she sometimes strays from the pack. Her ways of dealing with enemies and intruders are cruel. Killing Autobots is her main objective. She's everything a Decepticon needs- power, cruelty, stubbornness, intelligence, cunning, perceiving and deceiving, and no weakness. Her weapons are shotguns and machine guns. She stuns her enemies,...
