This film is a perfect sphere... it is completely pointless. The original film is nothing special, but it is fun, this, this takes away the fun side of the story and just gives us a fairly bleak, uninteresting film.
Its a shame the money was spent on this when there are so many better projects out there that will probably never see the light of day. The only good thing about it is the effects are pretty good.
Don't bother with this.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I really enjoyed this little film. It is a very simple story told pretty well. The acting is good, the 2 kids are fantastic and Bacon and the rest of the small cast work really well together.
It reminded me a lot of early Coen brothers in the way it was shot so it looks great, lots of long, wide shots, lots of moving through a static frame, which I like.
The only thing that really lets it down is…
Never really being a Transformers fan (I missed the toy craze by about 5 years), I enjoyed the 1st film, big, dumb and loud, but fun. Then the last 2 came out and my interest wained, kinda crap. But next to this one, the other 3 are works of art.
This is is the biggest piece of crap I think I have ever sat through. Michael Bay needs to be stopped, he is spending so much money on these pointless…
This is probably the best parody film I've seen since the original "Hotshots!". It is the perfect parody of the Grindhouse Blackspotation films of the early 1970's, it looks and feels exactly like one of those films.
This is a must see if you love comedy and grindhouse films, you will laugh out loud.
