This movie is like E.T with transformers and is better for it too. Yes it might make you cry or try your hardest to hold back the tears thinking to yourself " it's a Transformers movie why am I so emotional attached to the 2 protagonists?I
The relationship between BumbleBee and Charlie is so engaging and leaves you never in doubt who to root for. Which brings me on to the humour. People in the cinema were laughing out loud (me included) because it was so fresh, well timed and you just loved the characters so much you wanted to laugh.
My wife and I loved it, loved it, loved it. Never let Michael Bay near a Transformer again and let's just forget that mess of a franchise ever existed.
Yes, I know that’s not saying a lot but… it turns out that amputating Michael Bay from directorial duties facilitated an almost coherent and entertaining film.
CGI certainly has improved during the lifetime of this franchise: no longer are the good / bad autobots and decepticons shrouded in muddy gloom to disguise slightly shonky FX. In fact, I shall be mightily disappointed when the next VW Beetle I encounter doesn’t turn into a giant robot with a vast zap gun up its sleeve.
It got a bit bogged down in teenage angst but at least it wasn’t akin to being beaten over the head by a toddler’s toy for three hours. Kids of assorted ages (5 to around 14) appeared to adore it.
And the scene where Bumblebee spits out The Smiths cassette tape is genius.
The plot was written by christina hodson, who was completely clueless, or more likely didn't give a damn wrt the story line of the original comic series (where the autobots fled Cybertron in their ship 'the Ark' and crash landed on Earth). She instead decided to concoct her own story for BB, whereby Optimus Prime decided to send our plucky little hero on a secret mission to protect Earth against hordes of invading decepticons.
In a nutshell, she seems to think that sending one autobot (and the smallest one at that!), is a perfectly adequate guardian for the whole of planet Earth. This film is riddled with plot holes, (eg - how dropkick and blitzwing met their demise during their tussle with BB, which is just absurd). Furthermore, BB was portrayed as a frightened little guy instead as a resourceful soldier. The film had only three very average battle scenes (just like 'the last jedi' which was also a big disappointment).
Bear in mind the film is rated PG, I noticed the vast majority of the audience were kiddies and parents. Clearly, this film was aimed for the kiddy and family market and it was not designed to be an action film with a compelling plot for adults to enjoy. It was a very touchy-feely, hippy-dippy, girly film.
IMHO, just like 'the last jedi', the film was totally ruined and this is exactly why certain people should NEVER be allowed to write the story for what should be a an action film for guys. Similarly, the main protagonist in action films should never be women, as they always fail to deliver (with the exception of Sigourney Weaver in her 'aliens' trilogy. She was however, the exception to the rule).
On the plus side, we learned how BB's voice box was damaged, the CGI was fantastic and last but certainly not least, the producers decided to revert back to the original comic representations of the autoboots and decepticons. I have to say, they looked absolutely magnificent, particularly Optimus Prime. The previous Transformers films came under huge criticism for their own in-house fangled designs of the autoboots and decepticons, who in all fairness looked like mutant doritos.
Unless you are a parent, you should save your money and rent it when it is available on bluray.
