Unlike other toy-inspired children's animations, THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE doesn't try to appeal to just one market. Rather, this film attempts to have something for everyone, from tots to teens, and the result is a boring mess. Transformers are a popular series of robot toys boasting

the not-so-unique ability to change size, shape, and function to whatever form best suits the moment. The story takes place in the year 2005 as the heroic Transformers are locked into a life-or-death battle with their arch-enemies, the Decepticons. These evil creatures are fought off by some

Earthly creatures known as Autobots, sending the severely demoralized Decepticons off into outer space. Now enters Unicron (voiced by Orson Welles), a powerful force about the size of a planet, which is capable of destroying anything it wants to. Unicron helps to rejuvenate the Decepticon leader,

giving him a new body and a new moniker, Galvatron (voiced by Leonard Nimoy). It's all-out war between the new, improved Decepticons and the Autobots, but enter a young Transformer named Hot Rod (voiced by Judd Nelson). Basically, THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE features rancid animation techniques, a

story that will bore anyone over age 10, and a few overpaid celebrities essaying the lead voices.
