(Almost) More Than Meets the Eye

I just saw Transformers. As a Transformers fan, I was concerned that the original spirit of cartoon would be lost. It has not. The movie does not strictly follow the canon of the original cartoon, but the spirit is still there. Bumblebee is fun loving, Jazz is ubercool, Megatron is maniacal, Starscream is a failure (and Megatron let’s him know it), and Optimus Prime embodies everything that is good and honorable. When the Transformers are on screen the movie is awesome, when they’re not, it’s not. Even with it’s shortcomings, the movie still propelled me into a time warp. Suddenly I was six years old again and waiting for Optimus Prime to give the order: “Autobots, transform and roll out.” That’s all that really matters.

  1. Man, I cannot say that I’ve seen it yet, but I sure will soon. I’m a cheap sucker so I’ll probably wait unitl it goes into the cheaper theatre which will probably be in 2-3 months or so. Too bad Sandra won’t enjoy it nearly as much as I will !!! I even read that Bumblebee makes a reference to Star Trek OS. Nice 🙂
