Still shot from the movie: Transformers.


They ain't kid's toys anymore! Those little plastic playthings that could transform into robotic action figures are now taking over the big screen. Looking way too scary for tiny tykes, the mechanical menaces drop out of the sky so they can rage a battle here on Earth. With no regard for their surroundings, it is up to people like young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) to stop the giants before they stomp out all human life. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Transformers Rated PG-13?

The film’s opening scenes include a brutal attack on a U.S. Military base in the desert of Qatar. But the action doesn’t stop there. The perpetrators also strike the government’s defense department computers before taking their carnage (bombs, gunfire, car crashes) to the streets. Meanwhile, Sam’s infatuation with a midriff baring girl causes some hormone-charged comments and innuendo as well as a parental discussion about masturbation and a hidden adult magazine. Taken into custody for a suspected offense, Sam is accused of using drugs. The film also contains infrequent use of alcohol by adults along with profanities, vulgarities and a brief irreverent religious remark.
