Transformers, rather good robots in disguise

Posted in Michael Bay, movie, Transformers by Tony C on February 16, 2008


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.

    Not only but also… that lady in it wasn’t too unattractive (understatement) and the Smashing Pumpkins’ Doomsday Clock (from the new album Zeitgeist) was featured on the soundtrack (and was actually heard during the movie).
