Dreamworks Transformers - HD-DVD
From director Michael Bayand executive producer Steven Spielberg comes a thrilling battle between the heroic Autobots(R) andthe evil Decepticons(R). When their epic strugglecomes to Earth, all that stands between the Decepticons(R) and ultimate power is a clue held by young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf). Unaware that he ismankind's last chance for survival, Sam and Bumblebee, his robot disguised as a car, are in a heart-pounding race against an enemy unlike anything anyone has seen before. It's the incredible, breath-taking film spectacular that USA Today says "will appeal to the kid in all of us.".
"I bought a car. Turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew?" deadpans Sam Witwicky, hero and human heart of Michael Bay's rollicking robot-smackdown fest, Transformers. Witwicky (the sweetly nerdy Shia LaBeouf, channeling a young John Cusack) is the perfect counterpoint to the nearly nonstop exhilarating action. The plot is simple: an alien civil war (the Autobots vs. the evil Decepticons) has spilled onto Earth, and young Sam is caught in the fray by his newly purchased souped-up Camaro. Which has a mind--and identity, as a noble-warrior robot named Bumblebee--of its own. The effects, especially the mind-blowing transformations of the robots into their earthly forms and back again, are stellar.
Fans of the earlier film and TV series will be thrilled at this cutting-edge incarnation, but this version should please all fans of high-adrenaline action. Director Bay gleefully salts the movie with homages to pop-culture touchstones like Raiders of the Lost Ark, King Kong, and the early technothriller WarGames. The actors, though clearly all supporting those kickass robots, are uniformly on-target, including the dashing Josh Duhamel as a U.S. Army sergeant fighting an enemy he never anticipated; Jon Voight, as a tough yet sympathetic Secretary of Defense in over his head; and John Turturro, whose special agent manages to be confidently unctuous, even stripped to his undies. But the film belongs to Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and the dastardly Megatron--and the wicked stunts they collide in all over the globe. Long live Transformers! --A.T. Hurley

From beginning to end this movie is just one big explosive roller coaster ride. The action is almost non-stop, the actors are great and the story line is perfect. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Patrick D. Gallaher

Simillar thing happened to Iron Man on my PS3, mine wasn't connected to the internet, but on settings I had it automatically log onto BD-Live, so if you have internet, connect your Blu-Ray Player to it or go to settings and have the not connect to BD-Live when watching your movies.
