My 14 year old son and I went to the showing last night. The theater was packed!
I remember my brother watching these cartoons when he was younger so I was vaguely familiar with some of it but I was blown away by the graphics this movie had! My son is all about great graphics in movies and he was constantly talking about how awesome they were!
Shia LaBeouf is on his way to being a big star one day! We've loved him since his Nickelodeon days so we've always been a big fan of his! He's hilarious in this movie! That's one thing I was surprised about....there was quite a bit of humor in this movie! Bernie Mac is in the movie for a short bit at the beginning and he was funny, as usual!
There's lots of battles and blowing up of stuff (Los Angeles...don't know how they'll recuperate from the battle! ).
I'd love to go back and see it again....
I'd give this movie 2
**One tidbit of info that I found out...the original voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen, was brought back to do the voice in the movie!
