90 minute animated toy commercial in which the Autobots battle the evil Decepticons. Notable only for great cast of voices!
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 53%

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A 1986 computer-animated feature based on a popular TV cartoon show, further inspired, no doubt, by the philanthropic desire of Japanese and American toy manufacturers to keep their kiddie customers rolling in robots."
‑ Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
"Still the only Transformers film worth watching."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Far from a cheap spin-off, The Transformers: The Movie is an entertaining feature-length animation that's both handsome and well realised."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"It's good mindless fun, and a flick that no doubt holds a lot of Nostalgia Value for several members of my generation's sci-fi geeks."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVD Clinic
"American Anime before Anime was cool."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"The anime-inflected look is generally impressive too, although the power-rock soundtrack is unsalvageable."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"The real Transformers movie..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"it will dare you to be stupid"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"Did Transformers actually launch the celebrity-voiced animation craze 20 years ago? That may be the film's biggest legacy."
‑ Christopher Null,
"This animated number may require a certain nostalgia factor for successful viewing."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"While all this action may captivate young children, the animation is not spectacular enough to dazzle adults."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"An awful toy commercial in disguise."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Charming, useless fun."
‑ William Thomas, Empire Magazine
"Basically, The Transformers: The Movie features rancid animation techniques, a story that will bore anyone over age 10, and a few overpaid celebrities essaying the lead voices."
