Synopsis

It is the year 2005. Twenty-one years after the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons resumed their neverending war on planet Earth, the Decepticons have conquered the robots' home planet Cybertron. After a surprise attack by the Decepticons, both factions wage a gruesome battle at Autobot City. In the midst of the battle, Autobot leader Optimus Prime dies during his fight with Decepticon leader Megatron. The Autobot Matrix of Leadership is then passed on to second-in-command Ultra Magnus. Meanwhile, a badly-damaged Megatron is jettisoned by Starscream into deep space, where he encounters the planet-eating robot Unicron and is reborn as Galvatron, the new Decepticon leader. With Galvatron's reign on the rise and Unicron's imminent arrival within Cybertron's orbit, the Autobots must act quickly and protect the Matrix or face total annihilation.

Fans of '80s anime are bound to like Transformers the Movie. It takes place after the original series and transitions to a new cast of characters (involved in the second season) very effectively. The storyline is great with a good mix of humor, action, and adventure. Even those who've never watched one lick of the original series can follow the storyline, though they may not be able to feel same the depth of connection with the characters many die-hard fans may, especially at one part when the leader of the autobots passes on the matrix of leadership, which invovles one of the best uses read more

Some things I can say about this movie can be described in the following terms: dark and gritty, controversial, engaging and exciting, and some what revolutionary and ground breaking. And a lot of all of that had to do with the death of Optimus Prime along with other G1 characters such as Ironhide and Wheel Jack who really had no presence in the movie except being a corpse. But first I would like to talk about the controversial death of Optimus Prime. It’s interesting that amongst not just children, but the hardcore fanbase of all ages had emotions sparking within ourselves every time we see read more

Wait! Don't report me! Think about it! Shape changeing robots in space with a loud, high energy soundtrack. Sound familiar? Transformers just lacks a love story and Macross lacks the death of a certain, beloved icon.
