REVIEW: Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

After so many years, there is still a lot of clamor for transformer movies which rakes in millions of dollars in the box office. Despite having to change some of the lead  human characters,  the real stars are still the transformers.

And with such extensive lore, there are still a lot of stories that can be produced and transformers to be introduced. Though Optimus Prime and Bumblebee remain as crowd favorites for the franchise and should always have an appearance. 

This time we are now introduced to the Maximals in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, wherein we are also introduced to two new human characters, Noah Diaz and Elena, each being a specialist in their own fields. Maximals take the form of beasts which are bound to protect a certain key that is connected to a big villain in the franchise, Unicron. New favorite autobots for me is Mirage voiced by Pete Davidson, which has that comedic connection and charisma among all of the robotic aliens for the film.

With years since the last Transformers movie, I was not sure if I would have that Transformers fatigue, the movie did spark an interest and entertainment with the story. Though there are certain parts which feel like a template, it was still fun to watch.  The action for this is a staple yet they did find ways to make it unique and thrilling.

Though I really like the plot twist at the end which reveals something of a Hasbro Cinematic Universe which shows a whole new direction with the franchise. I think it can work and opens up to opportunities in producing more stories they can play with. And with more movies that can made from this, I feel that we will still be excited and curious with the next ones.
