The alien robots are tardy. They evidently came to earth when mankind was still a bunch of cave dwellers in the stone age (apparently the first wheel was a transformer, too), and the evil ones just hung around for a clue while the good ones just sort of came and went. It's baffling. Well, no one can say you wanted to see an intelligent film when you walked into a film based on the conceit of alien robots kicking the living crap out of each other. At the same token, I never envisaged a film whose sole mandate was to be stupid glorious fun would be this utterly boring.
