Autobots! Roll out!
Dudes i have just been to see Transformers!
We managed to get freebie premier tickets to see it!
Holy shit! It was brilliant, fantastic, it's a live-action Michael Bay spectacular, and arrives considerably augmented by an array of rather impressive, computer-generated special effects.
The first hour of the movie is heavier on comedy than action, following the hero as he's befuddled to learn of his Camaro's (an american car, he should have been a beetle like the original) metamorphic abilities. He tries to keep it all a secret from his parents (Kevin Dunn, Julie White), who suspect his strange behavior is hormonal. The plot hinges on Sam finding a magical cube called the Allspark. The protective aliens, known as Autobots, are trying to keep the cube away from the evil Decepticons, who plan to use the powers of the interplanetary object for global domination. Thus, the stage is set for car chases, street fights and air attacks pitting machine against machine, with ground support from the humans.
Although the film can't quite eclipse the glorious Saturday morning cartoon silliness of the 1986 animated "Transformers" movie, it more than stands its ground.
Man i totally loved this movie, so recommend it!
