The year is 2005, and the Decepticons have retaken Cybertron from Optimus Prime and his Autobot warriors. Both sides are seething with anger, and that hatred has blinded them to a hideous menace headed their way. That menace is Unicron, a monster so powerful he devours planets. Unicron has chosen to take control of Autobot Matrix for his own evil purposes, and to accomplish this he has created a force of super robots. ... With Decepticons on one side, Unicrons on the other, and Optimus Prime lost in battle, Earth and Autobot survival depends on the Chosen One who must rise to open the matrix and use its full power. Who that is remains a mystery.

The movie that forced millions of kids watch their favorite Saturday morning cartoon heroes gruesomely die in the first 20 minutes of the film. Including the leader and star of the show, Optimus Prime. Don't get me wrong, I loved this movie as a child. I probably watched it 100 times before I became a teenager. At the time I never thought much of it, other than it made watching reruns of the show that took place before the movie a little sad. As an adult, I look back and think "I wonder why they made the choice to release such a crazy action packed, YA (at best) movie and market it to the children who watch the show?". The 80's were a crazy era.

This was is awesome! The only thing I dint like is that like all the characters were killed off screen. And to answer other peoples questions Prime had to die so "Hot Rod" could take the "matrix" and anyway Prime comes back in the 2nd to last episode of the 4th season (oops spoiler). And yes I am a TF nerd.

I like it but almost all the popular characters died. Like Optimus, Starscream, prowl and maybe Ironhide. i don't remember.

I have been a fan of The Transformers since I first saw them back in the '80s, but somehow I didn't see this until its 30th Anniversary Edition came out. Is it flawless? Ah, no. Is it still worth seeing? Oh yes! The restored animation is lovely to compare to some great classic anime. The story is not terrible... And the soundtrack is 100% pure 1980s rock! A fun way to spend 90 minutes, for sure.

There was a lot of random moments and why did Prime have to get killed off!
