Transformers

As part of my superb stag weekend celebrations, we went to see the new Transformers film. I wasn't expecting much. Michael Bay's films are generally average at best (apart from the superb The Rock), but I was pleasantly surprised to find Transformers is a superb action flick. It's funny, you care about the characters, and the effects are so gobsmackingly good it's like watching the bullet time stuff in The Matrix for the first time. I left the cinema thinking "Wow!". My only criticism is that the Decepticons are mostly the same dull grey metal colour so it was sometimes difficult to tell them apart in the middle of a battle. The Autobots were all distinct bright colours. Earlier in the day, I had dug out my old VHS copy of the old cartoon film, and watched it for the first time in about two decades. It's not as good as I remember it, though the cheesy rock sound track is still a treat. If the excellent new film gets a sequel, bringing Unicron and Galvatron back would be fantastic (though Rodimus Prime is the worst name ever for a Transformer). Transformers: The Movie (80s cartoon version) - 6/10. Transformers (00s live action version) - 9.5/10.
