Back from my second round viewing of Transformers, so here's my thought.
First of all, I would like to thank Micheal Bay the director, Steven Spielbeg, DeSanto, Don Murphy and all the other important people that slipped past my mind, for finally bring a more than 20 years of 80s toys franchise to life. Best of all, I want to thank myself for putting my absolute faith in this project.
The plot is simple, the heroic Autobots and the cruel Decepticons battle each other to gain a cube called the Allspark, but the Allspark was propelled into galaxy, drifting untill it crash land on earth, both factions continue the pursuit, bringing their war with them.
Meanwhile Soccend base in Qatar was suddenly attack by Blackout, an awesomely menacing Decepticons for hidden reason, small group of survivors escaped but they were followed by something else.
Somewhere in US high school, Sam Witwicky's dream of getting a new car, a pretty girl and selling away his great great grandfather's spectacles, without realising that his action will transform his life forever.
The US defence secretary gone ape shit over the soccent massacare, recruiting all hackers ti find out the reason behind it, without realising that one secret sector knows all that jazz.
Soon those 3 group will be brought together to face their greatest challenge yet, as they are caught between the war that they didn't know about.
Transformers was overall, a thrilling and nostalgic ride start from head till the end. Countless great moment, awesome real life crash-bang-boom, and best fo all, over the top CGI performance that let me witness how the robots transform back and forth, slow and fast, without losing wee bit of details. However this movie suffer a few plotholes (where's Barricade after the highway chase ?!), just like other movies, but why trying to nitpick while I want to be entertained ?
The final verdict ? Watching Transformers is like meet up with your old friends whom you have lost contact for many years. When you see them, they have became what we wanted them to be : grown up.
