Yesterday I watched Transformers, the movie, and I must say WOW.
I was born in the 80’s so I am obviously a great fan of the series as I am fan of a lot of comic books which lately have become real in the big screen. Some succeeded, others do not, but Transformers did for me!
Let me explain you a bit of the history, based on the movie facts which are not 100% representative of the comic books..
First there was a planet, Cybertron. In this planet resides a great power sealed inside a cube shaped form, simply called The Cube. There were also two robot races: one that desired to acquire that power (Decepticons, battle bots led by Megatron) and the other that sworn to protect it from the wrong hands (Autobots, repair bots headed by Optimus Prime). A war began..
During their millions year old battle, somehow The Cube reached our planet, Earth. The robots came after it. It’s “their battle, our world”!
Now imagine the coolest freaking gigantic robots you will ever see fighting in the middle of a city, transforming themselves countless times between humanoid form and machinery like a BlackHawk helicopter, a F-22 fight aircraft or a beautiful Camaro 2007.. Neat, hun?!
As a tech geek I tend to be very very picky about it but the quality of sci-fi movies and besides the over-hyped UI’s and crazy-keyboard-typing scenes from some NSA so-called hackers this movie is full of reality. The quality of the special effects is simply awesome!! The fluid robot movements, the transformations speed and complexity, the human-behaviour presented in the bots just made my day. Also the movie is rich in comedy shots for the public amusement making it a pleasant piece of entertainment.
Did I mention that one of the main characters, a female human called Mickaela is hot as hell? No? Check this out..
Now, my favourite character (after Mickaela of course!!!)..
All in all it’s worth the money. I recommend everyone to check it, twice!! :-D
