Transformers: Age of a very looong but decent movie
on October 15, 2014
I was a huge Transformers fan when I was a kid, the cartoon was def appointment television on Sunday mornings and when the movies were made I was pretty stoked. The first one was a classic and probably the best of the series with all the characters that you remembered with some new ones tossed in. The second one in my opinion was a bust, the fallen character was a joke and when Optimus Prime died it did not mean much because you knew in 45 minutes he would be resurrected. The 3rd movie I could not get into it was just trying to out do the first 2 and by then it was too much too soon and I bailed before the ending.
Now we have the latest incarnation with the debut of the dynabots (if you watched the cartoons you did not even need to ask who they were) and instead of Shia Labeouf we get Marky Mark Wahlburg and a new cast of humans. The first hour was excellent, just a whole new spin on things. A bounty hunter autobot who is into killing the other autobots, Kelsey Grammer as a ruthless goverment agent who has plans of his own and a new decepticon with a voice and motives similar to one of my faves Megatron! New autobots join along to help Optimus save the earth and Mark from the bad guys but the problem is this movie goes along too damn long ! it is 2 hours and 45 minutes of the same thing over and over. A whole hour went by without much of anything new and by the time you got to the end you knew a few things....
Mark is a refreshing change from Shia
There is def a sequel coming from this movie
and Megatron is reborn.
If your a fan watch it. If your on the fence skip it and if your bored after the first 45 minutes skip ahead to 2:20 minutes to see the cool conclusion.
