This film is a huge part of my life. I went to the cinerma in 86 to see this (showing my age now) and have owned every version of it on video, dvd (and the cd sound track -twice) and now blue ray.
The transfer onto blue ray is far from perfect, i would say just above better than dvd, but it is nice and clear and the sounds good, but for a 20 + year old film what can you expect. This is the version i will play over the last dvd copy i bought since on that they alterd the sound and added stuff that did not work.
Great story, awsome pumping sound track and sweet animation. One word of warning kids under 7 might find this more than a little upsetting. Their is a lot of violence and one case of mild bad language. The ratings wrong on Play, its not a PG its U on the disk but it should be a PG for the above reason.
If you want to get some one intrested in the world of the Tranformers then sit them down with this and not the live action mess of a movie that Bay screwed up.
10/10 for the movie 7/10 for the disc.
ps buy the sound track!
