When inventor junker Cade Yaeger finds an old truck inside an old abandoned picture theatre, he quickly realises he has actually discovered a relic of the Chicago battle, an Autobot, and his life has irreversibly changed.
Except now they are our enemies according to the government. They have the CIA hunting down all of the Autobots one by one (strangely enough they aren’t hunting the Decepticons though). They are being assisted by otherworldly bounty hunter who is after Optimus Prime.
But it all gets mixed up in their heads when they discover that transformers are being created in a lab, except they just aren’t behaving as per their programming.
Yet another of the franchise that just doesn’t live up to expectations. It still just doesn’t hold up to the cartoons that I used to watch back in the 80’s and 90’s, the stories and wonder that they used to bring to me. Graphically the candy is waaaaaay better now but that is as expected.
If you really like the series, I’m sure you’ve already seen it, and if you haven’t you probably won’t.
