The Transformers: The Movie

Genre: Animation; Starring: Norman Alden, Jack Angel; Director: Nelson Shin; Author: Ron Friedman; Runtime (in minutes): 86; MPAA Rating: PG

This robot saga is Welles’ last film — and it’s no Citizen Kane. (Welles voices a sentient planet.) The plot? The Decepticons seek to destroy the virtuous Autobots. Punctuated with awful hard-rock songs (notably ”The Touch,” covered by Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights), this adaptation of the old TV cartoon is more pop-cult fromage than filmmaking.

EXTRAS include commentaries, a pop-up-video track, and a peek at 2007’s CG/live-action Transformers movie.

For nerds: B+
For civilians: C
