In what people (me and my friends) are calling the greatest movie ever made, Michael Bay returns viewers to the science fiction world where two factions of a robotic alien race battle over Earth's hidden secrets and powers.
Sorry old man, this movie was not made for you. This movie was made for all the people who packed theaters at midnight last night across North America wearing Transformers T-Shirts and playing transformer ringtones over and over, before, during, and after the movie on their cell phones.
This movie is for people who love a good action flick. More so, it is for people who grew up watching the original series, the movies, played with the toys, and went on from there to watch spinoff shows like Beast Wars and Beast Machines.
After catching the midnight screening last night I left the theater as one happy 26yr old kid; a huge smile across my face and pure joy in my heart. I'm going to see it again tonight and maybe again on the weekend in IMAX (which is apparently about 2mins longer than the regular version with added fight scenes).
Ladies, this makes a great date movie too, you'll love the human elements and the dynamics in the relationship between Sam (Shia LaBeouf) and Michaela (Megan toe thumb Fox).
Things you may not like about this movie, but I didn't mind:
1. The Twins: Foul mouthed twin robots who get a little too much screen time 2. Lack of dialogue for other robots: Ironhide, Ratchet, Sideswipe, Arcee, all have very limited screen time and lines 3. Devastator's balls: just get over it and giggle 4. Sam's Mom high on weed brownies: kind of unnecessary, but still funny
Transformers 3 plot hint: Tyrese, while observing Optimus Transform - "Kinda freaky huh? If God made us in his image. Who made them?" Look for Unicron and more old Transformers like Omega Supreme in the final chapter of the trilogy. (crosses fingers and hopes for parts 4,5,6)
I give this movie 5 out of 5 Bo-Ty's.
