Alright... Review will be up soon, I'm typing it up in my LJ and will cross-post when I'm done. As I've already warned for spoilers, they will be typed for all to see, so if you dont want to know anything about the Movie, dont look here. EDIT: Here's my review, cross-posted from my LJ... Wasn't feeling too well during the day so I was a little out of it in the cinema hall. Slight nausea and lots of excitement dont exactly mix well. Crowd was the blandest, dullest I've ever watched with. There were very few fans in the audience I think. There were no reactions to anything, in fact it was only our group that reacted to anything. Sheesh... Non-spoiler version: 4 out of 5 stars for me. Aside from my feeling like crap, I really enjoyed it. Autobot fans will adore this, Decepticon fans... maybe not so much. Peter Cullen deserves an award for his work as Prime. Much respect to the man, his Optimus still has what it takes to inspire people to action. Hugo Weaving's Megatron, despite the controversy, was really well done. If you didnt know he was doing the voice, you wouldn't know it was him. Hella scary man. Spoiler version starts here... Yes, Jazz dies. Yes, Megatron rips him in half. Yes, he dies trying to defend the others - distracting Megatron to buy the others time to get the Allspark out of the immediate vicinity. Yes, they mourn him at the end. That is all I will say on the matter. Frenzy... I LOVE FRENZY!!! He is the sneakiest, most vicious, most annoying, most adorable little bastard I have ever laid eyes on and GIVE ME A FRAGGING FRENZY TOY LIKE NOW, DAMMIT! Little fragger gets in just about everywhere to cause mayhem, speaks a garbled mix of English and Cybertronian, flipped someone off, and I just want to hug him... even if it means he'll slice my head off with those killer CDs of his. The Autobots are love. Prime was awesome. Gentle at just the right moments, firm when he needed to be, downright vicious when he was forced to be (his "Get out of the car" to the Sector 7 guys would probably make a grown man wet himself), has a sense of humor. I'll be the first one to admit I REALLY like Movie Prime, ALOT. Peter Cullen, you the man! You rock! Why do the Autobots use so much slang? Easy. Prime explains that they picked up English from the Internet. 'Nuff said. Ironhide... Ahh good ol' Ironhide. Such a teddy bear. Kinda trigger-happy (he wanted to waste the Sector 7 guys) Good fighter. Voice was great! He had that slightly older, slightly more mature voice. You really get the Old Veteran feel from him, very much in character. I really wanted to hug him. Ratchet. D'aww... I got the friendly neighborhood doctor from him. Also cuddle-worthy. Could have used a few more lines, but considering the amount of content in the Movie, he did get quite a bit of screentime. That cutting-blade on his arm was wicked. Bumblebee... Again, this Movie made me LIKE Bee. Bee was adorable, just the cutest little thing ever. He's the audience's link to the Autobots and despite not being able to speak, emotes VERY WELL. Yes, he moved me to tears when Sector 7 started harpooning him and Sam was screaming and trying to stop them, and again when they were 'experimenting' on him. I'm sure Spielberg had influenced that. He gets his voice back at the end when he comes into contact with the Allspark. Jazz... this was an edgier Jazz than we're used to in G1. Not as gentle-sounding. He was what I would call a mix of Blaster and Jazz, which fit his alt mode. Voice was spot on. He almost looks like he's break-dancing when he transforms and is quite the loyal bot. He was the only one to try and persuade Prime into going after Bee after Bee was captured by Sector 7. I wish we could have seen more of him, but well... he still went out a hero. The Cons, well apart from Frenzy and Megatron, the only other two who get speaking lines are Starscream (again, another good voice) and Barricade. Not much character development for them, which was expected since the Autobots were the main stars of this. Starscream has some slick moves. Blackout shone at the start. Bonecrusher and Brawl (Called Devastator) blew alot of stuff up. The story was simple enough to follow. Three main threads joining together at the end for the final showdown. Thread 1 - the Army guys; 2 - Sam, Mikaela and the Autobots; 3 - The Secretary of Defense and the govt. No Shakespearean plot twists or deep storytelling, and thank Primus for that. Lots of eye-candy. DEWBOT!!! Yes! The Mountain Dew vending machine TF makes an appearance. I need to watch this again with a better crowd. Far too much to take in just one time. I also need to be less "out of it".
