There is this cube. Nobody knows where it comes from, all they know is that it was the object used to fill the world with life. For a moment everyone lived in peace, but like all powerful items some wanted it for evil, some wanted it for good, and thus the war began. Then the cube was lost, and where did it land? Earth.
Movie starts nicely with a digitally animated object floating around while a deep voice tells us this story. Then the action starts. It's the story of a boy, a girl, and two alien forces struggling over control. I wasn't expecting much when I watched this movie. Basically everyone I know has been telling me that it's just full of crap, but I haven't seen anything transformer-related before this, except for toy figures in the stores. I guess that lets me build a different standalone perspective, not taking into consideration any of the previous episodes or movies that have been made, if there have been any made, I have no idea. It's by far the best digitally animated film I've seen. The storyline is a unique one, the heroes are heroic, the villains are bad, the boundaries are clear, and everything goes as it's expected to. Real film and digitally animated monsters blend in perfectly. The angles of filming are great, the camera changes are great, everything just looks perfect.
Lots of action, lots of variation, great music and characters with clearly defined personalities. The transformations and modern technologies displayed in the movie look pretty amazing, and the details even in the most chaotic atmospheres are fantastic. Even with the robots flying through office buildings you see the people running around inside, moving realistically, running for cover. Explosions are well-made, everything sounds realistic, everything looks realistic. It's a alternative vision of this world. The storyline is fast-paced, filled with both comedy, action, drama and romance. Everything looks flawless. I don't want to hype this up too much or you'll be disappointed if you watch it yourself, so let me just conclude the summary here. If you haven't seen it already, I recommend it. It has everything a great action movie needs, and a lot more.
And I haven't even mentioned the comical elements. The main character is a funny guy. The parents are typical parents. The robots have their own awkward traits. The script is just as good as the filmography is. You get to see a lot of nice cars, too. Personally though, I actually liked the old broken up Camero better than the new one. I like old cars. Anyway, I don't think I need to elaborate on details, just go watch it if you haven't.
rated 5/5: friggin awesome
