Picture from Transformers
Overall C+

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.

Violence D+
Sexual Content C+
Profanity D+
Substance Use B

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action violence, brief sexual humor, and language.
