Review: TRANSFORMERS: Meets The Eye in Row M

Transformers, the live action feature film was something fans of the Cartoon show and comic books dreamed about. With modern day computer effects it was sure to be an awesome spectacle that would be more than met the eye. Then the announcement came that the dream would finally come true and a live action Transformers movie was in the works. Then came the day that Michael Bay would be directing the movie and a sort of collective sigh came from the fans. I myself was outraged. I did not like Michael Bay or his movies. How could the studio and Producer Steven Spielberg become parties to destroying a piece of my childhood? I grit my teeth and laughed at ad campaign and complained to anyone who would listen about Bay’s role as director. Until, I saw the film for the 1st time.

Transformers is a movie for fans. A Little watered down, from the Cartoon series in terms of characters and story, it still packs a very large and loud punch. The amazing effects and thrilling action scenes make the price of admission worth it. Of course there is much more and the key elements are there. Surprisingly there are a great number of comedic moments. This is was certainly not what I expected. Another pleasant surprise was Shia LeBeouf, a player in some smaller films and cable TV shows he certainly shows he has a blossoming star quality in this movie. The best thing I can say about the Transformers movie though is the voice work done for the Robotic characters is fantastic. Peter Cullen returns as the heroic Optimus Prime, an Autobot from the planet Cybertron. The first sight and sound of Optimus was enough to quiet any skeptical thoughts I had about Bay or this movie.

I wish that the robotic characters would have unfolded earlier in the film and that Bay with insist less on cutting to an airfield or plane scrambling to take off just as the sun is setting. For the really purist Transformers fans I’m sure they will find some fault that will make them dislike the movie forever all I have to say that I LOVED this movie! I want to see it a couple of times while out in the theatre! The best thing to do is to try and catch a DLP screening, with the colors and effects it looks beautiful.
