More than meets the eye

Thank God for the World Wide Web and ebay, because of these the Autobots were able to locate clues that will eventually lead to the lost "cube" - a mystical talisman that would grant unlimited power to whoever possessed it. I'm referring about the Transformers movie, which i just watched a few hours ago. I've been waiting for this movie to come out for like... 3 years (i think) and Wow as in WOW! This movie totally rocks!

Great story, way awesome action sequences and outstanding CGI animations. Great casting as well, from Shia's main character Spike to the brave soldiers played by Tyrese and Josh, same goes with Jon Voight who portrayed the character of Secretary of Defense effectively. Also, the humor works very well and is satisfying and natural instead of silly and forced. As for the robots, hands down for the very detailed models... yes they are not exactly the same as the cartoons but these new models actually looks good especially during their transformation. Optimus, Bumblebee, Jazz, Ratchett, Ironhide compose the Autobots... all of them transforming into GMC vehicles (sponsored of course) while Megatron, Starscream, Barricade, Devastator, Frenzy, Skorpinok and Blackout make out the Decepticons. Trivia: Optimus is voiced by Peter Cullen, the original Optimus' voice of the 80's cartoons while Megatron is voiced by actor Hugo Weaving.

Best action movie that i've seen so far this year, I enjoyed it a lot i watched it again for the 2nd time. The last movie that i watched twice was Matrix Reloaded. The action sequences will really blow you away :)

Transformers really did bring back the child in me, it's nice to see these robots in disguise in the big screen. It's also nice to know that we get to watch it early here in the Philippines, US will start their regular showing on July 4 in time for their Independence Day. Watch it! you'll never be disappointed. Go now to the cinemas, as what Optimus' says... "Autobots... roll out!"
