The originally planned post for today will be next week but I just had yo do this review. Also before I begin, all images were found via a Google search!
What can I say? I love the Transformers and they can do no wrong, yeah right. All of the Bayformers movies are forgettable. I have seen all of them but other than the Last Knight don't ask me about them. I can't remember them at all. Sure I remember pieces like Megan Fox looking sexy or Shia finding Bumblebee, etc but for the most part I never remember them.
I think it is due to to factors they are jarring and hard to understand and the special effects are the main goal and that is obvious. The Last Knight is bad and I hate saying that as the Bayformers movies aren't that good in the first place but this is in its own bad category. When you think they can't ruin more, they do.
The plot is simple, the government has declared that all Transformers no matter what faction are illegal and are hunting them down. In fact ALL governments but Cuba has declared them enemies. Santos, the leader of the TRF (Transformers Reaction Force) is very one minded for most of the film and wants to DESTROY them all. As this is going on, Quintessa turns Optimus into her puppet. Quintessa is supposed to be the Bayformers universe version of the Quintessons. Like the Quintessons in other universes, Quintessa created the Transformers. She sends Optimus to get a staff to drain the life force of Unicron to bring back Cybertron. Megatron and his team are also looking for this staff as is Cade Yeager and Viviane Wembly. Oh and did I mention that not only is Unicron Earth, but Megatron was working for Quintessa all along? Obviously the RTF and Autobots team-up and defeat Megatron and Quintessa.
So, this is who they are saying is Earth. sheesh.
I dreaded this movie because I knew that we would see Quintessa, Hot Rod, and Unicron. I liked Quintessa and thought she was well done and I loved her bodyguard Infernotocus. I even like the idea of Earth being Unicron but that concerns me as now he is out there, we will probably see him at some part and to do him justice Earth would have to transform and that would probably be bad for all life on it!
Sqweeks and Izabela were great and I Definitely enjoyed Izabela's scenes and think the actress Isabela (yep thats her name) was great and might have to watch her Nickelodeon work. (writer's note: I discovered I have seen her work before as she was in the movie version of The Legends of the Hidden Temple and she was great in that as well!)
I loved that she had guts. She was orphaned and lived with a couple Transformers which is impressive in its own right but she also stood up to Megatron.
