"'Transformers,' while broadly fitting the same basic pattern, laid out a much more multi-layered playing field, providing depth, reach and back story to otherwise two-dimensional characters and situations,"
"I just think it's a theme that can applied anywhere, to any character,. We all walk a line. Sometimes we step one way, sometimes another. How we then deal with the consequences defines us as a person. And I definitely see the Transformers as people. It's a mistake, I think, to start out with the idea that they're robots. They're weak, flawed, strong, inspirational, conflicted, opinionated characters - just like us. The fact that they're robots is, to me, fairly incidental."
