Top Ten Worst Things About the Transformers Movies


The Top Ten

1 Michael Bay's Directing

Michael Bay does NOT know how to make a good Transformers movie. In fact, his movies have almost NOTHING to do with the Transformers since the focus is more on the humans than on the robot characters. I'm sorry, but there's no excuse for that! If you're going to make movies about the Transformers, then they should BE ABOUT THE TRANSFORMERS! PERIOD! The 1986 animated movie is a good example!

Why can't film critics and audiences stop hating Michael Bay? I mean, what's wrong with his directing?

I feel you, bro. Last time I checked, people watch movies for whatever they want to see, not just the story or quality!

Oh Michael Bay you retard. - MoldySock

I actually used to think that Transformers 5 would be good. Clearly I was wrong. Michael Bay raped my childhood with the movies, and it’s imminent he HASN’T LEARNED HOW TO MAKE A GOOD MOVIE. I swear to God, the only things good about Transformers were Soundwave’s design, bringing back the old actors and Dark of the Moon’s general plot, everything else sucked. - Crocoduck

2 The Obnoxious and Annoying Characters

Oh my God. Sam is just the most annoying character in Transformers, almost equal to Jar Jar Binks. He sounds like some late bloomer who masturbates in the school library. Exactly like that guy in my high school who did that. - Crocoduck

Sam Witwicky takes the cake. Because not only was he annoying and obnoxious and acted like a spider monkey on drugs, but he just became more and more intolerable as time went on. Thank God he never returned for the fourth movie. And I hope he doesn't come back. Like, EVER.

Two words: Sam's mom

Oh Mikaela Banes... when will you ever learned? :P

3 They Were All Successful at The Box Office

Probably, it's the toys that make that much a year. Go look up "To Sell Toys" at the Transformers wiki.

Bashing on movies that earned lots of money for some reason really makes you jealous. Are you or not?

They were good with the box office... And absolutely nothing else

Here's How Much They Made

1.Transformers(2007)-$709 Million Worldwide
2.Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen(2009)-$836 Million Worldwide
3.Transformers: Dark Of The Moon(2011)-$1,123 Billion Worldwide
4.Transformers: Age Of Extinction(2014)-$1,104 Billion Worldwide

4 Racism

Two Words- Mudflap And Skids Enough Said

Racism sucks! Worse than Bananaism and McDonaldism. - HezarioSeth

5 In The Action Scenes You Can't Tell What's Going on

According to screen junkies, the action scenes "look like junkyards having sex with each other"

6 Optimus Prime Getting Killed Off Half Way Through The 2nd Movie

At least it didn't make many children cry in the theater unlike transformers the movie of 1986

7 Gross Out Gags
8 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

The second movie was the most atrocious out of the Bayformers series. Its everything wrong with the first movie, but even worse. And no, Optimus Prime's death in the 1986 movie had some weight to it. And not to mention that movie treated him like a CHARACTER. But to Bay, he's nothing more than a marketing ploy. It was predictable that he would be back before the film was over. Seriously, people, Transformers movies have so much potential to be so much better. But Bay has demonstrated that this is how NOT to do it. This is an example of what happens when you allow the rights to a franchise to fall into the disreputable hands of someone who does what he does just for money and nothing else.

I ain't gonna say I hate the movie, but it's alright. The reason why the haters target this film so much is because it's dialogue aren't that great, bad flaws and they still hate Megan Fox's guts for no reason. You can love this movie all you want, but still the haters will still hating till they die.

Why do many people hate this movie so much? Megan Fox isn't a bad actress and is smoking hot. Optimus dying was a great plot twist. The only things that really sucked about this movie was the fight at the end where the fallen got his ass totally kicked. He didn't even stand a chance even with megatron. Megatron is a horrible character but he is in all of the movies.

Frequent profanity, racism, overly explosion-filled and more. Really, I never expect movie perfection but this was WAY below my very "low" expectations. I don't think Megan Fox is a bad actress (which is the case why most people hated this movie), it's honestly just... I don't know, this movie is just plain horrible. Really, out of all millions of bad movies there are, it got ranked #10 on's Top 10 Worst Movies list. NUMBER TEN.

This movie was just plain bad.

9 Carley Spencer

She should be #1! She supports all and every girl stereotype there is! And this is an action movie! The girls are supposed to be OPPOSING the stereotypes, not supporting them! - Remaining

The only thing the character did the whole movie was cry and whine. The most irritating thing about the movie was the female character.

Definitely. Carly spoiled the movie for me and my younger siblings. She's so annoying and screams for EVERYTHING non-stop. And she just HAD to be blonde. My goodness, it's always blonde. I can't stand it and just because of her horribly stereotypical and annoying acting, I now dislike DoTM. - xMagnoblade

10 Lack of Character Development

This is one of the problems that is most obvious in the Michael Bay Transformers series. And they say that the original cartoon was full of problems.

The transformers in the movies they are so bland and characterless.They have no charisma or character development.They are just giant killing machines.Someone says they love mirage (He is NOT dino) just WHY because he is just there? and is cool looking? and optimus is not just the heroic optimus that we know.He is a merciless killer who just doesn't show a sign of Mercy.And those Autobots who have some personality like the ones from the first movie usually have cocky attitudes.Even Sam got more character development than them.Transformers is not what we all know thanks to bay.

The Contenders

11 The 5th One is Coming Out

This one is so boring!

12 The Atrocious Acting

Especially on Shia's part as the ever annoying Sam Witwicky.

13 Michael Bay Keeps On Making More Transformers Movies

Apparently Michael Bay has grown an obsession for his own interpretation of the Transformers universe. Its been almost a decade since the first movie came out, but he doesn't seem to have changed much since then. But sooner or later people will catch on to how predictable and tasteless his movies really are. And die-hard Transformers fans are going to give up eventually.

14 Jazz's Death

Jazz's death was so premature and anticlimactic. We don't even get to know his character or anything. They just killed him off just like that. But then again, considering how the first three movies were barely even about the Transformers and focused way too much on the stupid and annoying human characters (who make me embarrassed to be apart of this species), I guess we really can't expect much from Michael Bay, now can we?

This is so unfair Jazz and he is also too young. I will say thank you to Michael Bay if he put him in the movie again.

We miss you so much Jazz and we hope you will be repaired again.

I think Michael bay does not even like transformers!

15 The Robots Having No Type of Personality Whatsoever
16 All The Movies Are Exactly The Same

That is most certainly true. And that's a BIG problem. Because they all follow the same plot. There's nothing new, no plot twists or character development, no coherent storylines, its just the same garbage over and over again. In fact, by this point, the movies have become so predictable that I've lost faith. Do you really expect the movies to make sense at this point when the writers and producers care so little about the franchise that they based their movies off of? Even Michael Bay doesn't care. He just does what he does just to make a buck. That's pretty much all they care about nowadays.

That could be true, but their fanbases are way different thanks to their opinions.

There just explosiona and loud noises

17 The Lengths of The Films

The movies last too long than they need to. Especially with all their filler and nonsensical stories. And all the other issues that plague them.

I know they are EXTREMELY long. But that doesn't matter because the movies are EPIC

Half of the scenes add nothing to the story.

18 Transformers: Age of Extinction

The fourth movie was a little bit better than the first three atrocities, but that's not saying much. But I will give Michael Bay credit for balancing out the focus so that its not too much on the humans or on the robots. And thank God they got rid of Sam Witwicky. Because he was just becoming more and more annoying as time went on. The franchise doesn't need Sam.

I wasted my money's worth from my wallet to see it in IMAX 3D. The longest ever in the franchise and most loudest than its predecessors.

19 Humans Helping Decepticons

This actually sounds interesting. Evil humans working with evil living robots. They should probably use more human antagonists. - xMagnoblade

Transformers prime silas and breakdown

Two words: Harold Attinger - SelfDestruct

20 The Witwicky Family

They are utterly despicable, annoying, and serve absolutely no purpose to the plot. And I think Sam's mom is a crack-head. Oh, what am I thinking? The plots in these movies make little to no sense at all!

God... The mother is the only one I find funny.
