Movie Review: Transformers

This is 2-hours of the finest giant robot fun on the planet! “Transformers” the movie doesn’t have much of plot and it really doesn’t need one due to its mighty-fine robots and some spectacular special effects. The story is pretty simple: good and evil robots land on Earth and fight to bring a conclusion to their robot war. The robots are agile and clever, and each has their own personality. They are socially awkward, inpatient, and generally act like otakus in high tech gundams suits. The war and fight scenes are riveting and inspired much glee in my husband and myself. We pinched and slapped each other silly. Ahhh, … and then there are the blatant product placements in the movie. GM is sadly hoping this will make us lust after GM cars. Unfortunately, all I lust for after seeing this movie is for some cool toys. There’s big HP, Apple, Nokia, and Panasonic product placements to recall a few. Watch for the cool little guy that transforms into small personal gadgets. He’s quite cutely mischievous. Oh, and lastly, who wouldn’t want to see giant robots destroy LA! WHEEE! I give this movie 4/5 for some mighty fine robots and the destruction of Wilshire Blvd. Fanboys everywhere rejoice!
