I caught a screening of the Transformers last night and I’m happy to say it was awesome! Transformer fans are going to love it, non-Transformer fans are going to love it, even your old Aunt Agnes with the cataracts is going to love it.
It’s hands down one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen. The action and special effects are insane. You haven’t seen anything like this. The story is very simple and it does have its flaws but it’s hard to think about those flaws, or even care, whenever there’s a Transformer on the screen. Especially when said Transformer is the heroic Optimus Prime.
Two big surprises were Shia LaBeouf and Bumblebee. Shia was just fantastic and really, really funny, and it’s practically impossible not to like Bumblebee. There were more laugh out loud moments in this movie than in most of the comedies I’ve seen this year. And yes, Megan Fox is really hot.
My only real complaint is that there wasn’t enough interaction between the Transformers. And I would have liked to have seen a little more of the Decepticons just because they’re such scene stealers. Do yourself a favor and go see this movie. You wont regret it. 9/10
