THE PLOT:

Every teenager remembers his or her first car, but for one young teenager he'll never forget for his beat up old rust bucket he pays for grand for is "more then meets the eye". He's Bumblebee, an Autobot from the planet Cybertron. Scout looking to see if the information is true. But the evil Decepticons are also after it and their lost leader Megatron. This teen is stuck in the middle and may get torn apart literally.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Now after the whole WAR OF THE WORLDS and UNDERDOG disasters I was more then a tad wary of this new Transformers, but I got to admit I wasn't disappointed. The characters, the action is all what I expected. Now there are some character issues, this CIA or NSA or whatever guy that's a real jerk. But other then that, this is a great live action adaptation. 8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, this is a great live action adaptation but I think they over did something, I think they made the transformations a tad too complicated, it wasn't needed to make it that complicated plus the wheels are covered in robot form. Just a minor complaint, 8 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ STORY (Stays fateful to the Transformers universe.)
+ EFFECTS (Amazing effects, it's like they're really there.)
+ FATEFUL (Stays fateful to the original concept.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- MINOR CHARACTER ISSUE (There is this government agent dude who thinks he can do whatever he wants whenever he wants and forget basic human rights.)
- TOO COMPLICATED (VOLTRON thinks they overdid the transformation sequences.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you didn't like or get into the comic or character then this isn't for you.)
