I’ve purposely stayed away from any pictures or information about the movie. So when the preview came on, I unexpectedly got giddy when Shia LaBeouf runs his fingers across the Autobot logo on the wheel of his new used car (Bumblebee isn’t a beetle [bad choice] and mega-tron isn’t a floating gun [good choice]). I wanted to look away and save it for the movie but I just had to watch.
It’s directed by Michael Bay (The Island, Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, The Rock). So I know it’s going to be high on action and most likely cheese. And after looking at all the writers, producers and editors I can pretty much say the special effects should be amazing. But it’s going to be choppy both visually and plot wise and pretty void of decent dialogue. But the trailer was super ultra cool. And the new bot designs are pretty neat if you are into that Gundam look.
