Transformers, rather good robots in disguise
You know when you sit down to watch a movie expecting it to be OK but it turns out to way, way, way better. Well Transformers is precisely that. Missed at the cinema because Mrs C wasn’t interested we decided to give it go via our free trial from LoveFilm. Now the critics gave the movie a hard time, partly because the source material is hardly what you’d call Shakespeare and Michael Bay’s track record as a director is a how shall I put it? A bit mixed. But it’s as authentic a transition, nay transformation, from cartoon to live action as you’ll find. The lad had to come good eventually. I was genuinely surprised by how much fun the movie was, but not as surprised at Mrs C who has now transformed, god this is too easy, into a huge Transformers fan, Bumblebee being the Autobot of choice.
If you park your preconceptions and break out the popcorn it’s loud, proud and really rather good.
