It's a popcorn-movie deluxe.

A first-rate, slam-bang action thriller with a lot of style and no little humor.

The borrowings from other movies, going all the way back to the car chase in 1968's Bullitt, are heavy. But Bay has three leads to lend weight and dimension to characters who are hardly original and flatly written.
