The new Transformers movie premiered yesterday and, as I have mentioned before, I used to love the Transformers as a kid, and I felt like I just had to see it now. Unfortunately it probably is so that some things are better when you are a kid then when you are grown up, among them comics about robots that can change form.
The movie starts by showing how the two sides in the Transformers was both come to Earth in search for the source for all life, the Allspark (and I thought that it was the Matrix that was the source to all life, but that might have been in an alternative universe). After that there is a long build-up with various plot threads that all end in a large ending battle.
That’s about the short summary of the film. The visual effects are well done, the plot holds and everything feels like it has been given good attention, but I miss that real kick I got out of the Transformers back in the 80’s. Perhaps I am beginning to grow old?
