It turns out that NASA didn't really lose contact with the astronauts during their first landing on the moon. Instead, the space agency intentionally blacked out communication with the public, allowing the astronauts to carry out the top-secret investigation of a Cybertronian spacecraft. Now decades later the Autobots have learned of the ship's existence and are racing the Decepticons to the lunar surface to discover the vessel's secrets.

Hoping for some specific reviews from parents here soon!  I have a 6 year old who loves the transformers and has seen the previous ones with slight edits on the home DVD player.  Remember, there is no substitute for supervision and no replacement for guidance.

So this is what passes for a PG-13 now? I guess only allowing 1 “F” bomb to be heard means it’s still ok for kids? The close up of the girlfriends fanny and underwear right from the begining clues you in to the low mental budget of the film. I’m getting a bit tired of the industry taking what kids are interested in and turning it into something nasty.:( Definitely DON’T take you 6 years olds to watch this garbage. I USED to like the transformers and now I’m wondering if I’ll let my kids ever watch the cartoons again. Sheesh!
